    Does anyone use "Vinted" for selling clothes? 9th Aug 19 at 12:26 PM
    Just wondering if anyone sells on Vinted?

    I can't find much on it except it is based in Lithuania.
    Has anyone sold anything there? Any info/tips would be useful.

    Clothes I want to sell are not high end but they are good makes. Have tried Shpock and Marketplace but not successful.

    I have been selling on Vinted for a while - sold both fashion and cosmetics there. Not too bad if you are not bothered with the wait. There is no auction format a bit similar to Shpock. You don't pay fees but buyer pays. I think user profile is on the younger side though - so you are likely to have a better time selling Topshop than let's say Karen Millen.

    Thank you, that is good to know.
    Yes, the clothes are not high end.
    Just wondering if there is any seller/buyer protection etc like Ebay. If things don't work out, is there any help?
    Just getting my head round their postage bands.

    If the buyer reports an issue with the item (i.e. not received, faulty), you need to refund. Sellers don't have much protection but you can always claim the cost from the Royal Mail if it isn't delivered. Their customer service is overall good though.

    Thank you Assaj.

    My daughter actually sold her first item through Vinted. She is pleased. I was worried as I do not know much about this site.
    We will list some more clothes and see how we get on.

    Also trying marketplace but too many time wasters - it is so frustrating!

    I was going to give this site a go, but it appears the buyer selects which postage method is used? This is no good to me as only couple of methods I can use.

    There are two: Royal Mail and Hermes. You should be able to disable Hermes option as a seller.

    One more question - Do the buyers have the same rights as in Ebay? If they did not receive the goods, I understand that we have to refund the full amount. But is there anything similar to SNAD in Ebay? I hardly sell any clothes in Ebay as I am worried about sizes colours etc and buyers not happy about what they have bought.
