Images are crucial for attracting buyers on Vinted. Ensure your items are well-lit, properly displayed, and showcase their unique features. Use a neutral background and take multiple shots from different angles to provide a comprehensive view of the item’s condition. If you’re not a photographer like that or just don’t have the time and patience, make sure you take a few photo’s or include photo’s of yourself wearing the item. When looking for clothes I always enjoy trying to do the math about whether something will fit me based on how someone is wearing it on a photo. You know, dress length to bunda ratio…

I enjoy seeing sellers individuals styles and gaining inspiration on how to wear different garments and styles. That’s why I tend to include photos like that on my listings also.

Detailed Descriptions

Accurate and detailed descriptions help buyers make informed decisions. Be transparent about the item’s condition, size, brand, and any flaws. Include measurements, materials, and provide additional information to address potential buyer queries. It’s always a good idea to let buyers know they can ask you questions or request more information on one of your items, include this in your captions or state it in your bio.

Competitive Pricing

Research similar listings on Vinted to determine a competitive and fair price for your items. Consider the brand, condition, and original price when setting your price. Offering discounts or bundle deals can attract more buyers and increase your chances of making a sale. The easiest way to do this is to look for the same item in the search bar and see what it’s being sold for. Remember Vinted is a second hand selling site, people want decent prices, not RRP’s.

Active Promotion

Maximise your reach on Vinted by actively promoting your listings. Utilise the “Bump” feature to bring your items to the top of the search results. Share your listings on social media platforms or create a separate account to showcase your available items. Engage with potential buyers and respond promptly to inquiries. When you first sign up for Vinted you’ll get given a “FREE BUMP” – make use of this and let it do it’s thing.

Another great way to promote your items is using the Vinted Facebook groups – search Vinted UK Listings and lots of groups will pop up, join a few and start engaging with some of the follow and like threads, this will help drive traffic to your wardrobe and boost your items to be shown to potential buyers.

Since using the “FREE BUMP” and promoting using Vinted Facebook groups I haven’t bumped items or had to spotlight my wardrobe and I have managed to sell majority of my listings. Trust me, it works.

Shipping and Packaging

Provide accurate information about shipping options, costs, and estimated delivery times. Ensure your items are properly packaged to protect them during transit. Consider adding a personal touch, such as a handwritten thank-you note, to enhance the buyer’s experience.

I include a Thank You card and a style zine which is exclusive physical content available only to my buyers and tailored specifically to those that buy size 14/16 women’s garments… Which is what I sell.

I would advise re-using packaging where you can, because it’s sustainable, we all have bags for life stashed in that kitchen cupboard right? It’s also the common way of doing things on Vinted, buyers expect it and they also expect to be able to reuse packaging – don’t ask me, I don’t make the rules but I am totally here for it!

If you are actively selling, have lots of items listed and have used up all your bags for life like I did, then your next step and best bet would be to purchase some postal bags in bulk, it will save you time and money! I highly recommend these ones from >>Amazon<< A pack of 50 and you get two sizes M/L. They are durable, stick well, can be reused and erm, they’re pink?! (you can choose a colour you like)

You can make some great sales right now by listing items people would generally be searching for in the month of July, heres some pointers:

Holiday clothes – swimwear, cover ups, flowy dresses and trousers, cute co ords.

Festival wear – Mesh tee’s, band tee’s, high waisted shorts, co ords, any clothing that is glittery/sparkly or is giving boho vibes.

Summer dresses – midi dresses, mini dresses, floral dresses, evening dresses, day dresses, brunch dresses, wedding guest dresses – any type of event you could think of that requires a dress.

It’s a hobby of mine researching popular keywords and Google searches, I kind of have to be on the ball when it comes to SEO analysis to create the most relevant content to provide you on my site – so if you want regular updates on what searches are trending and what keywords to use in terms of seasonal trends then make sure you sign up to receive email updates and the current top tips for selling on Vinted.
