GENERAL RULES

•   You need to upload each of your items separately, under their corresponding category and you can list them only once.
•   Bundle listings (sets) must state ‘bundle’ or ‘set’ in the listings’ title and description. Each bundle listing must have the total price for all the items it includes. The items included in the bundle cannot be listed separately.
•   All the items should have an appropriate item condition assigned to them.
•   We do not allow listing any items which are intended to be sold for commercial purposes:

  • a large number of brand new items
  • a large number of items with tags attached to them
  • clothing or other items of the same style but in different colours, sizes
  • items with their size indicated as ‘various’ or with notes ‘more sizes available’
  • items with a note ‘can be ordered’
  • items that are listed by using pictures from the internet or stock photos.

•   We don’t allow adding notes ‘sold’, ‘currently out of stock’, ‘check back later’, etc. to the title of the item when you’ve already sold, swapped or given it away. Press the button ‘Mark as given away’ on the listing and we’ll hide it from other members.
•   When your item’s price is unusually low/high and doesn’t match the real item’s value, the listing will be considered as an auctioned one. vinted.co.uk does not support commercial selling, for this reason, all the listings and other posts related to auctioning or bidding activities are not allowed. Find out how to set a reasonable price for your item.
•   Requirements for the item’s photos:

  • They have to represent the item as it is - no image editing is allowed.
  • They must be sharp and clear. Check out our photo tips.
  • They have to be taken by you, or your friend/relative, with the purpose of using the photos on vinted.co.uk.
  • They cannot be replaced with stock photos, photos from ads and watermarked images.
  • The first photo should clearly represent the item. You’re free to choose how you want to showcase your item in your additional photos.

 

PENALTIES

When members disregard our Catalogue rules, we take the following measures:

  • If we see that a member’s listing needs some amendments, we make it invisible in their wardrobe and we send a message to the member informing them about the actions they need to take within 24 hours. If the member doesn’t take these actions within the requested frame of time, their item remains hidden.
  • If we see a member’s listing that includes a forbidden item, we delete the listing from the member’s wardrobe and we send them a message informing about the reason for the deletion.
  • If a member uploads forbidden items repeatedly, we suspend their account for an unlimited period of time or even block it, and we send a message to the member informing them about it.


Sometimes some disputes can occur among members. If that’s the case and you can not come to a mutual agreement with the other member even with our team’s involvement - our team has the decisive vote on how the situation will be solved.

We understand that there are many rules to read through and comply with, hence it is natural that some of them might not be clear. If you have any questions - contact our team and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Our team reserves the right to change the above-stated rules.
