Vinted Balance: how it works

Vinted Balance is a secure wallet where the seller:

  1. Receives all earnings from sold items
  2. Can pay from it to buy on Vinted
  3. Can withdraw their money from it to their bank account

You don’t need to use Vinted Balance to buy on Vinted. We offer other payment methods too. You also cannot top it up — it’s only there to store earnings.

Receiving earnings from sold items
  1. Buyer pays for an item → Payment appears under 'pending balance' in the seller's Vinted Balance

Why we have Vinted Balance

Our payment service provider MangoPay will delay the transfer of funds to the seller. Such delays are a common practice in online marketplaces.

This ensures that the buyer receives the purchased item. If something goes wrong, we may refund the buyer (though you can mutually agree on a different resolution). So, it helps us keep Vinted safe and secure for both buyers and sellers.
