Hi Vinties! I'm Olalla, and you're on a blog where I like to write about those tricks that make our day-to-day life easier. Today we're going to talk about how to buy at Vinted and the best tricks for buying at Vinted.

I have been a seller on Vinted since the summer of 2019 and although lately I am a little distant from selling second hand because I am immersed in other issues I have always admired the application to sell second hand clothes Vinted and is that we can discover that despite its disadvantages that are few, it is perfect, really the best that has existed so far.

With so much positivity, who has never thought about how to buy at Vinted? Especially when it comes to buying a garment that in clothing shops are very expensive and we can not cope with that purchase because our economy is scarce, certainly today there are not many people with a pocket enough to cope with the repeated purchase of garments because of the degradation that the garments suffer from use and because they have been created en masse without really good materials in order to reduce their price and increase the margin that large clothing chains are left for the sale of a garment.

Haven't you ever bought a garment in a shop and had it break soon after? Well, it has happened to me, so what's the point of buying these clothes second hand? at a lower price and even from someone else who has hardly worn it and the garment is in the same condition as new.

Tips and tricks for shopping at Vinted

Watch out for these super interesting tricks for shopping at Vinted that will always come in handy when you make a purchase:

  • Revisa la conexión del vendedor

    Como trucos para comprar en Vinted debes saber que si el vendedor no se ha conectado en la última semana es probable que aunque le hagas una compra no se de cuenta de ello y tengas que cancelar tu venta por ello es interesante que te fijes en este dato para no perder tu tiempo.

  • Look at the quality of the seller's photos

    The product photos are an x-ray of what the garment will actually look like. Look at what these photos look like. If they have good lighting, because if they don't, it is possible that the seller is hiding any flaws. Also value photographs of the product when it is worn, as it will be easier for you to make the right purchase because you will already know how it will look on you.

  • Make the seller an offer

    The best trick to buying on Vinted is to make the seller an offer of around two or three euros less than the price of the garment. This is based on the basic haggling that often happens in second-hand markets. Click on "write to seller" on the product page and then click on "Make offer" to suggest the price you want.

  • Pay attention to the product description


    In the description the seller should have described the measurements and distances on the garment, so if for example you are going to buy a dress, the length measurement is really important because you will be able to measure yourself and know if this garment suits you.

  • Look for flaws

    Damages are what can cause you to regret your purchase later on. So that you don't waste your time in the tricks for buying at Vinted I wanted to tell you that you should look for any imperfections in the garments that you will normally see in the photos or in the description of the product to find out if you still want to continue buying it with these imperfections.
