How to Sell For Free On Vinted – My Tips and Tricks!


Vinted is a lot like eBay – you list the things you no longer want or need in order to make money, or you can buy items for pretty low prices! It differs from eBay in that it’s mostly clothes, shoes and accessories – while you can list small furnishings and items like toys and books – these aren’t nearly as popular as clothing. From Primark to Prada – everything sells on Vinted! The other difference is Vinted is free to sell on, there are no listing/selling fees as everything is covered by the buyer – so you can make money for FREE just by using a different platform. But how does Vinted work? Read on to find out, and get some tips and tricks on how to use the Vinted app.

Buying is simple – just search for the items you’d like, for example, ‘Green T-shirt’, and use the categories to narrow it down. You can narrow by brand, condition, size and style. You can also arrange the order in which you see items too, as with any online shop. You can then ‘like’ items, or message sellers to get more information about the items they’re selling –  or make offers, which they can accept, reject, or counter-offer – it’s just like haggling! Once you’ve found items you want, just press ‘buy now’ to order it – then fill out your details and choose a shipping method, alongside where you’d like to have it delivered to.

Vinted primarily uses Evri, Yodel and InPost, which allow for cheaper delivery. The buyer chooses which method, and can have it shipped to their house, a nearby shop, or a parcel locker – all sellers need to do is to take the parcel to a shop or locker, and they’ll get a list of the nearest ones when items have sold! It tends to be cheaper to have an item sent to a shop or locker, so keep that in mind when bargain hunting, and make sure that you choose one that you’ll be able to get to easily, as parcels will be sent back if they’re not collected within a certain timeframe.

Here’s my handy guide on selling on Vinted, as selling is a little more complicated, but not by much!

  1. Open the Vinted app and hit ‘sell,’ and then tap on the ‘Create listing’ button. After that, pick the type of item and take photos of your items (you can add up to 20 photos)
  2. Give your item an accurate title and a good description. This will help your item show up when people are looking to buy!
  3. Choose a category and brand, to help people find the items they want, and to help it stand out!
  4. Set your asking price – think about what you paid originally, and then what the condition is! It might also be worth looking at similar listings on Vinted too.
  5. Click ‘Upload’
  6. When people are interested, you’ll be notified that they’ve liked the item. You can make offers, or message them to see if they’d like to buy. They can do this too, so keep your eyes on your inboxes!

Vinted relies on good-quality photographs even more than other sites, as many of its users are younger, so make sure that your clothes look appealing. You’ll also want to turn on the bundle feature, which allows people to order one or more item for a small (5-15% discount) alongside saving on shipping.

Always look at reviews before you buy or sell – as with everything on the internet, it’s good to check for scams, and this is done on Vinted by going to a user’s profile and clicking on their reviews – people get rated out of 5 stars as buyers and sellers – so keep this in mind regardless of what side you’re on! A good seller is communicative, quick and honest. A good buyer asks questions so they don’t get an item that doesn’t fit or looks different to the photos. Is Vinted legit? Totally, I have used it for years and have never been scammed – but you’ve just got to filter through sellers and buyers.

In my opinion, Vinted is so much more user-friendly than eBay. The free listings are one amazing thing, and the resolution centre is another. Any issues get sorted quickly and fairly, and it’s so much easier to go through than eBay’s! However, the fact that only clothes sell well is the downside – eBay and Facebook marketplace definitely are the places to use when selling household goods, books, toys and other non-wearables – but I hope this guide has helped you out, and you have fun bagging bargains or making (practically) free money!
