Our tips for Dropshipping on Vinted

Getting into Dropshipping for the first time can be a bit scary if you have no idea how to go about it. That's why we offer you here some useful tips so that you can start without any stress:

  • Define which items you want to offer for sale in your Vinted dressing room. They have to be items that sell fairly easily and that you can make a profit with.
  • Choose your supplier carefully. It is really important to have an efficient and trusted supplier. We propose you a list of them in this article.
  • Make sure of the quality of the products you will resell. Don't buy anything just because it's cheap. Look at item ratings and comments from previous buyers before making your decision.
  • Calculate your profitt. There is no point in selling an item in Dropshipping if you don't earn any profit on the sale. So make your calculations before publishing your ads on Vinted and remember to include the shipping costs.
  • Check delivery times. Depending on the supplier, it can take a long time. Make sure that the delivery times are in line with those usually offered on Vinted.
  • Don't forget to tell the supplier not to send the invoice in the package. Obviously, the buyer should not suspect, when receiving his order, that his article comes from an external supplier, so it would be a real shame if he discovered the invoice in his package.

The best suppliers for Dropshipping on Vinted

As we have just explained, finding a good supplier is essential if you want to start Dropshipping on Vinted.

There are several providers widely used on the Internet for Dropshipping, known for their very competitive prices. Here is a small list of those we recommend:

  • Amazon Choosing this supplier has big advantages, but also big disadvantages. Amazon is clearly the best provider when it comes to delivery times. Their prices are also attractive. On the other hand, when using their site to resell products, take into account that Amazon packages tend to be delivered with the logo and the name of the brand on it. This can be problematic with your Vinted buyers.
  • Ebay Ebay : it is a very good supplier who offers items at very interesting prices, of good quality and whose delivery times are rather fast. The only disadvantage with Ebay is that there is not much stock or quantity of products.
  • AliExpress It is by far the most used supplier in Dropshipping. AliExpress has an incredible quantity of products at unbeatable prices. Its disadvantage? The quality of its items can leave something to be desired, so you have to be careful what you buy. In addition, their delivery times are known to be long. To counter this problem, don't worry, you can always filter AliExpress products to see only those sent from France or from your buyer's country on Vinted.

Are Buy and Sell and Dropshipping allowed on Vinted?

The answer to this question is yes, as far as Buy and Sell is concerned. There is nothing to prevent you from doing so in Vinted's sales policies and conditions, since once purchased, the item belongs to you and you are therefore free to do what you want with it.

As for Dropshipping, however, Vinted does not really endorse this practice, as you can imagine. As the platform offers to sell second-hand items, selling new items via external suppliers seems to go against its policies.

In Vinted's terms of sale, it is stated that the Seller "should not add items that are typically sold as low value dropshipping items."
