I joined a few years ago and was making pretty decent sales every month. But now it seems they lost their direction. You pay to share your item. You pay return shipping if something doesn't work out. Sellers are moving to other platforms and forgetting about this one. Three times I've tried to buy something only to be told it was sold a while back and they forgot to take it off here. Just bummed at the direction this seems to be going when it started out so good.
Their rules on returns are not in favor of the buyer. You end up paying for shipping twice & end up with less money than you paid for the item. Other sites like tradesy are better for the buyers in returns. Watch for scammers, alot of girls scam you in trying to get a refund by stating they received damaged items. they would damage it & send pics to vinted and if it's an angle of the item you happen to have not captured in your pics it gets returned to you after they had time to use the item. Buyers fees and shipping fees are high. You would think since they took on advertising companies they wouldn't charge so much. No filters with new members so you get all kinds of scammers on here now. Be very cautious.
I shopped Vinted for years until I was just charged $820 for a pair of sunglasses that I did not like or authorize the purchase of and had not been logged in. I contacted Vinted to ask how this happened they only told me that my money was being refunded and not how something like that could happen. I provided a description of how the seller had other things of the same price listed as sold on her page. This isn't a secure site at all.
Didn't sell a single thing. I frequently got notifications telling me to change my images to get "better views". Often. The app hid items that had my own face in the picture, telling me not to use stock images. Thats my face! The rules in general were just really stupid. I'm also not willing to spend money to "bump" my items that nobody's going to buy anyways, even if I did earn money on there. Deleting my account was a whole other nightmare to find as well. Its like a cult you can't leave. I ended up having to google how. I wasted my time on this app. It's no wonder Vinted is losing popularity. I listed the same items on Poshmark and sold faster there which is a miracle for me. Don't even bother with this app.
I used to love this app just logged back in after a few months to find out shipping is ridiculous and there is a fee to buy now pfft no thanks.
The worst experience ever! I made a purchase of 2 items, listed as "New" about a week and a half ago - I recieve items that are worn, faded, stained and most definitely, not new! I send an email with photos to Vint support and get approved for a refund. Great, except I am told on top of the items total, shipping fee, & "service fee" that I have already been charged, I am responsible to pay out of pocket yet again for the return fee. So I spend another $9.75 at my post office to send it back, send about 10 emails over the course of 48 hours and yet still have not recieved even a reply let alone any type of refund or response to the matter. They have completely ignored all emails I sent in the past 2 days. This app promotes safe and secure shopping yet at the moment an issue arises, they stop replying to emails. Needless to say, I just lost $35 bucks to ship items back and forth. The seller should be charged for misrepresenting the item in the first place. This IS NOT A SAFE AND SECURE place to shop as they promote. It was a $35 lesson learned. I am deleting this app as it is a waste of my time and money...good luck shoppers, be prepared to loose money if your seller is dishonest because there is NO protection on this app - none!
Vinted profiles just got a revamp. Now, member profile pics are bigger, meaning you can really know who you're talking to! 💁🏼
