Every day there are more and more users who are being blocked in the Vinted APP. The application is already well known in Spain and there are many users who have had time to experiment with this app and many people have unintentionally carried out actions that have led to a blockage. On many occasions these blockages are due to a lack of specific explanation of the information in Vinted or simply due to our own absent-mindedness.

In this article I will explain what you can do to recover your Vinted account and something very important which is how to get money back from Vinted on a blocked account.

Recover Blocked Vinted Account

There are two types of account blocking on Vinted, a temporary block which lasts for 7 days and a permanent block which is usually given when the user repeats actions that led to the temporary block. However, if you want to keep your Vinted account, it is necessary that you do not have either a temporary or permanent block.

Tips for not getting your Vinted account blocked

If we don't want Vinted to block our account, the best thing we can do is to avoid certain habits that we may think are normal, but which Vinted doesn't consider normal:

  1. Avoid insults and bad language

    I know it is difficult to have a correct language if a customer does something to us, but for the sake of our account it is advisable not to have bad words or we can get a block.

  2. Avoid SPAM

    You can make offers to people who like you on Vinted, but you should do it sparingly, you can give offers to 5 users every minute and wait for a while and then continue after that so you don't get flagged as a nuisance person on Vinted. In the forums you should also avoid SPAM such as promoting your wardrobe or other non-Vinted pages.

  3. Don't overdo it with messages

    You can make offers to people who like you on Vinted, but you should do it in moderation, you can give offers to 5 users every minute and wait a while and then continue after that so you don't get flagged as a nuisance person on Vinted.

  4. Do not buy or pay outside of Vinted

    Avoid buying and selling outside of Vinted. Everything must be processed in the APP. Do not play the game of anyone who asks you to buy or sell outside the app.

  5. Control your commercial sale

    Vinted is not for commercial sales, but for second hand sales between individuals, but there are a large number of users who are doing commercial sales and many of them have been blocked. If you don't want to get your account blocked, you should carry on, and if you want to do commercial sales it should be very small and of varied products without being noticed.

  6. Do not sell imitations

    Avoid selling imitations at all costs. And if you are going to sell a high-value branded product, I only recommend you do so if you have the purchase receipt to avoid problems with the customer and avoid blockages.

  7. Avoid looking like a commercial account

    Using your name and avoiding using logos so as not to look like a fashion shop will avoid Vinted's suspicions to prevent you from being blocked, as all commercial shop accounts are currently being blocked.

  8. Avoid looking like a commercial account

    Using your name and avoiding using logos so as not to look like a fashion shop will avoid Vinted's suspicions to prevent you from being blocked, as all commercial shop accounts are currently being blocked.

  9. Reclaim your deleted products

    When Vinted deletes a product it tells you that if you continue with more penalties you may be blocked. This indicates that Vinted has a karma. So immediately open a message to Vinted, explain which product you want to recover and add the edited photos and your original photos so that they can see that they are yours.

  10. Do not mark that it has been sold elsewhere.

    Vinted penalises if you sell your products outside, so, even if it is true, never indicate that it has been sold outside to avoid blockages.

How to recover a Vinted account?

All the information below will be very useful for you to analyse what is happening with your Vinted account and learn how to recover it.

These tactics for recovering your Vinted account are all that have been discussed so far:

  1. Cambia la IP de tu router

    I would like to talk about the IP blocked Vinted because if you are reading this article because you are looking for information about Vinted have blocked the IP that is so much discussed in the Vinted Facebook groups I want to tell you that I have been informed about it by an expert in Telecommunications.

    You should know that the IP of your Internet router is dynamic (as a general rule if you have not contracted a fixed IP for which you would be overpaying and you should buy it specifically by asking your network company) and changes every time you restart the router. Then Turn off your router, turn it back on and you will have another IP.

    Now, this is on your home computer, but what about mobile data? In the case of mobiles, IPs are also dynamic.

    Companies reuse IPs between all their users on the same company. So imagine you have been banned from Vinted and the next day your neighbour who sells on Vinted and has your same network company picks up your IP from when you were banned she will also have an IP ban and will not be able to use Vinted, she will have to contact Vinted to fix it.

  2. Create a different account

    Finally, the most likely way in which Vinted will have blocked your account is by storing in its database your name, surname, home address, bank account number, credit card number and all the data you have entered when registering your account and has labelled it as blocked.

    This means that you cannot use Vinted again unless a family member or friend lets you create an account with their details and without you repeating any of the details you used to register your blocked account.

    You must then comply with all the guidelines I have given you above as tips on how to avoid being blocked again.

How can I get my Vinted money back from a blocked account?

If your account has been blocked you can recover the money from Vinted by logging into your account and transferring the money as normal. In the event that you are unable to do this you will need to contact Vinted for them to transfer the money.
