I’ve used eBay for a few years now, to both buy and sell on. I can’t really fault it, it allows me to buy items in bulk for so much cheaper than other online sites or in stores! however, I discovered Depop a few months ago and it’s honestly one of the best apps I’ve ever downloaded, I love it! It’s pretty much Instagram, in terms of layout but for selling, buying and swapping items! I’ve sold loads already and found myself some great little bargains! There is no insertion fee or deduction from what you make, well if you do it through Paypal ‘friends and family’ that is! I think most users have caught on to this now! I think Depop is a great app for anyone who has a small buisness set up eg; hand made jewellery. This is something I’ve seen a lot of! and just anybody who’s wanting to have a wardrobe clear out and make some money from it! the way I see it is, making anything at all from your old stuff is a bonus cos you’d only throw it out or give it to charity if not, right? 🙂
It’s mega easy to use too which is always a relief for me personally, I’m rubbish with new apps and technology haha! this app allows you to ‘like’ other users items, sell your own items and add a description, 4 images and a price etc, recieve and give out user reviews (which are viewable to other users who browse your profile). As stated before, this app is very simular to Instagram – which goes for ‘followers’ too! It’s great 🙂
A great little company I found was ‘krjewellery’, a small company based in South Wales. I’m loving these little cute chokers and necklaces atm and these guys only charge £2.75 including p&p costs which is so good! definitely the cheapest I’ve seen! I’ve looked on eBay for these and the cheapest I could find was around £6, so it’s a huge difference!! krjewllery sell these and a range of other great quality hand made items. I posted a photo of my purchase on as soon as it arrived and uploaded it to Depop to tag them and let them know I loved it! I recieved a message from the company asking for my Instagram username, once I had given them it, shortly after they tagged me in a photo, I thought this was so cute and made it clear customer satisfaction is important to them, which is so nice to see/hear as some companies are only bothered about making a profit!
so yeah, I’d definitely recommend getting this app! It’s great 😀 however, very addictive haha! xo
