I want to share with you my opinion and experience both to buy and to sell on Vinted. After time using the platform, writing about Vinted on this blog and reading forums, my information will help you form an opinion about Vinted whether you want to buy or sell.

Is Vinted reliable?

My definition of using the Vinted platform for both buying and selling is very similar to driving a car. Using it you can increase the speed but you must always control yourself so as not to be in danger or have a fine (I mean that Vinted removes your account if you are a seller, or that you have a bad experience with a seller if you are a buyer).

Vinted is reliable, it is not a platform whose purpose is to scam the user, rather they want to evolve their company and for this they know that they need buyers and sellers to manage their second-hand clothes in continuous movement.

In the field of payments, Vinted is a reliable and secure platform where money is always protected. The only danger that a current solution does not have, so to speak, is for the sellers, and of this they must be aware. I'll tell you about it next.

Vinted reviews to sell

Selling on Vinted can make sure you earn money, whether it's a monthly salary or not. You have to be careful about overselling because they may see it as a trade sale. Also don't have very good images so they don't get deleted.

In general terms, the platform is really good, which is why it is very successful. However, returns at Vinted are complex for the seller to manage since Vinted returns the money to the customer without knowing for sure if the customer will want to return the item to the seller later.

On the other hand, selling is busy because you have to keep an eye on the APP, but if you love talking to people and answering questions, Vinted is perfect for you.

  • You must manage the incidences of Vinted when it removes products from you because it believes that the photos are from official stores.

Vinted opinions to buy

Buying at Vinted is undoubtedly the most fun part, that is, buyers are not in any danger, since if they buy and the product is not what they expected, they will return their money and the loss does not exist.

The least positive part of buying on Vinted is that you can spend hours just to find a seller whose product looks good in the photo and in descriptions to know what you can really expect from the garment, not to be endlessly buying and returning .

Sellers are recently learning how to detail their product ads well, and not all of them accurately state the details. While others may not reply to you in chat.

The only danger is that there are some users who want to manage the sale outside of the Vinted platform and this is the only danger to which we must say no.

Also be careful because there are people reselling or selling second-hand at higher prices than in online stores, therefore, you should first look at the price in the real store to make sure you buy at a fair price.
