Etsy-owned fashion marketplace Depop is looking to ramp up Q4 sales in Australia with special no selling fee offers to bring in new sellers and reactivate dormant ones.
For dormant sellers, Depop is offering fee free selling from October 31-November 30, if you meet the criteria.
List and Sell items within promotion period. Items must be sold in AUD during promo dates.

Start time: 00:01 31st October 2023

Free Fees New Users (AU) 31 October - 31st Dec 2023
Australia only. List and Sell any item within promo period. Item must be sold in AUD during promo dates.
Criteria: You must have registered for your first Depop account on or after 31st October 2023 - this cannot be a second account of an existing Depop user.
AEST (Duration: 64 days)
Start time 00:01 31st October 2023
End time 23:59 31st December 2023
Australia only: Depop’s 10% selling fee will not be applied to any items in any category which are listed and sold by new users (being users who registered for their first Depop account on or after 31st October 2023) between 00:01 (AEST) on October 31st 2023 and 23:59 (AEST) on December 31st 2023 inclusive (Offer Period). Items must be listed and sold in AUD.
For the avoidance of doubt:
- Second accounts of existing Depop users will not qualify as ‘new users’.
- Items must be both listed and sold during the Offer Period to qualify.
Both promotions refer only to the 10% Depop selling fee, Paypal transaction fees and Depop Boosting fees still apply.
While these promotions are not exclusively being offered to former Poshmark sellers, the timing certainly suggests that like eBay, Depop is looking to make the most out of a competitor's retreat from the Australian market.
