Hey again! Sorry for my slightly imperative title 😬. Today,I wanted to talk about this new app which I have become absolutely OBSESSED with over the last few weeks…it is now my most used app. This app is called depop!
Depop is an app where you can buy or sell,or just do both. There are so many different things on Depop such as small business that sometimes sell jewellery, lipglosses, sweet boxes, customised shoes and more! Many popular brands are available for everyone too, such as top brands like supreme, urban outfitters, Tommy Hilfiger, Brandy Melville, Levi’s and more. These are just a few of the ones I’ve seen,but there is definitely something for everyone (not just girls) !
I am also fully aware that some of these brands are involved in fast fashion and mistreatment of employees etc. However, I think that buying from these brands,when it is second hand is better at least than just buying yourself,that way the items have a longer lifespan and don’t just go straight to rubbish dumps,demand will also be lowered.
A lot of the items sold (specifically clothing) have not even been worn before and many people are open to swaps. This is where you and someone else exchange items you have listed on your page, so you both get something you prefer and nothing is wasted!
It is also very easy to set up your page if you want to start selling,all you have to do is connect to PayPal, and Depop will take you through the other steps. Most of the sellers and buyers on Depop are very nice,just be sure to check out their reviews because sometimes they are an indication of quality of the items and other issues. As I said,I haven’t run into any issues yet and just to give you a heads up when messaging about items, everyone uses SO MANY x’s at the end if their messages !
E.g. (a message I’ve received) :
Hey! I was just wondering whether you would swap this (the item) for anything I have listed?xxx … xxx …. xxxxxxxxxxxxxzxx
Anyway,what I’m trying to say is check out the app because I’m sure, like me, you all have bits of clothing or other things lying around that you never use/wear and could sell !
I hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day or night wherever you are 🌅🌄!! Do you have Depop? Have you ever bought anything or sold things on an app like this? Do you like supporting small businesses and helping the environment? – (comments!)
