Vinted is a great way to start selling online, get rid of unwanted items in your wardrobe and free up some space (and cash!).

The most popular items for sale in the app are adult / kids clothing, accessories and small homewares. High street brands go down well, but you can also sell designer and high end clothing using Vinted’s verification service.

Vinted reportedly has 16 million users in the UK – that’s nearly a quarter of the population so you’re bound to find a buyer for your preloved items and turn your old clothes into cash!


This is an easy one to get you started with selling online. Download the Vinted app and follow the simple steps to set yourself up as a seller.

From experience, Vinted really is easy to use – upload pictures of whatever you want to sell, add a description (plus details of size / make / condition) and set your price.

Unlike ebay, it isn’t an auction – you can stick to your price or buyers can offer you a price up to 40% less (you don’t have to accept).

Buyers always pay for postage via carriers like Evri and you get paid directly from Vinted within 5 days of the buyer receiving the item.

As Vinted doesn’t charge sellers any fees, it’s a great way to clear out and get some quick cash for stuff you don’t need any more, but as money-making goes, you aren’t likely to be making a big profit selling your old clothes and it’s limited to whatever you actually have available to sell.

On the flipside, it can also be a great place to buy and save too, although buyers are charged what Vinted calls a ‘buyer protection fee’ and have to pay for postage – it can still work out much cheaper than hitting the high street or other online shopping. It’s also a great place to start if you want to buy secondhand and do your bit for the planet.


In the last year I made over £180 selling our unwanted clothes on Vinted.

“Kids grow out of clothes so fast, it’s hard to keep up – I’ve found that selling is a great way to make sure you aren’t always ending up out of pocket. I either sell items as they get too small, or wait and sell clothes or shoes in ‘bundles’ based on size. I’ve also started selling items from mine and my partner’s wardrobe that we’ve fallen out of love with; trying to make sure something old goes before buying anything new. In the last year I made over £180 selling our unwanted clothes on Vinted.

Buying on Vinted has saved me money too, my best bargains so far have been a pack of three brand new Bambino Mio potty training pants for £3, a good-as-new Zara kids coat for £3.50 and a pair of kids Hunter wellies for £8 that looked barely used. With so many other parents selling on Vinted, I get some amazing bargains and don’t feel like I’m chucking money down the drain every time Cherri grows out of something. 

 In terms of how easy it is to send and receive parcels I’ve been really impressed – there’s an inPost locker about five minutes walk from ours so I can drop off or collect parcels literally in minutes.”
