Vinted or Wallapop? What is the best application to sell clothes

Vinted or Wallapop

When it comes to selling all those that we have left over, in the Play Store we have a large number of applications that will allow us to get some extra income. However, depending on what type of items you want to sell, it is more advisable to use both.

If you are hesitating between Vinted or Wallapop To sell the clothes that you no longer use and that can have a second life, in this article we are going to focus on showing you what are the advantages and disadvantages of each one when it comes to selling clothes that we have stopped using but are still in good condition.

The first thing we should know before opting for an au other platform is how it works And what are the characteristics of each one since some of its characteristics may not be to your liking and you discard it directly without contemplating other functionalities that perhaps compensate for that lack.

Commissions at Wallapop

In order to register and use Wallapop we do not have to pay a single euro. We can use this platform completely free of charge as long as we sell in person or agree to send the products via courier upon payment, a highly unlikely option unless we have previously dealt with the buyer and still the worst option of all.

If we want to buy an item that is not in our city or nearby, the simplest and safest solution to buy at Wallapop is through Wallapop Protect. Wallapop Protect is Wallapop's platform for manage both purchases and shipments safely.

Use this platform has a cost to the buyer of 10% for insurance. To that 10%, we have to add the cost of shipping, which may vary depending on the size and weight of the item.

For example, if you buy an item that costs 200 euros in another province and you want to receive it safely at home, you will have to pay, in addition to the 200 euros, € 20 as a commission, a commission that the platform calls it insurance. Also, you have to add shipping cost, whose cheapest price is 2,95 euros.

Unless it is a very special item and that you have not been able to find in your province, really this platform is not worth using. In addition, we have another problem that is the delay in payment by the platform, since sometimes it can take up to a week since we send the article.

The main advantage for the buyer and disadvantage for the seller, which we find in this platform is that we can test the product for 48 hours that we have bought to make sure that it works and is in the same condition as the ad. If so, and we give the go-ahead, Wallapop will proceed to make the payment to the buyer.

The problem with this function is that the seller always has everything to lose, since the buyer may try to deceive us by replacing the item to be returned with another that does not work or intentionally damage it without the buyer being able to do anything on their part.

Commissions at Vinted

The operation of Vinted and different from that of Wallapop since all sales are made through the app and not in person as if it happens with Wallapop.

All the money we make from sales will be stored in our account as Vinted Balance, something like a purse where we have all the money we earn from the sale of items, money that we can transfer to a checking account.

Although in the advertising that Vinted affirms that they do not apply any type of commission, it really is not like that. While Wallapop applies a 10% surcharge for insurance and protection to the buyer, Vinted applies a rate of 0,70 euros per item and a 5% commission seller protection.

A commission after all. To that commission, we have to add the price of shipping jacks that varies depending on the number of products, what they occupy, weight ...

Like Wallapop, the buyer has 2 days to inform the platform if you have had a problem with your order. If so, the full amount of the purchase will be refunded.
