United Kingdom Depop Fees Structure
Depop is a great place to sell some pre-loved items or pick up some vintage clothing. It is sort of like an online thrift marketplace with a lot of sellers.
Depop does not charge a listing fee and sellers can list as many products as they like.
The only fees charged are:
- A flat 10% selling fee
- Transaction fee
You can send your orders through either 'Ship With Depop' (dropoff and home collection) or other couriers. You also have an option to charge the buyer shipping. If the buyer pays for the shipping, the 10% selling price will be based on the sale price plus shipping charged.
For payment processing, you can choose either PayPal or Depop Payments. Both charge the same fees of 2.9% + £0.30.
For example, the sale price of an item is £10 and the shipping charged/cost is £2.

- Depop selling fee → (£10 + £2) * 0.1 = £1.20
- Depop/PayPal transaction fee → (£10 + £2) * 0.029 + £0.30 = £0.65
- Total Depop fee → £1.20 + £0.65 = £1.85
You/seller pays for shipping
- Depop selling fee → £10 * 0.1 = £1
- Depop/PayPal transaction fee → (£10 * 0.029) + £0.30 = £0.59
