Uploading clothes to the app is completely free and Vinted doesn’t take a cut of sellers’ profits, instead charging buyers a small fee for each item.

Hannah Bevington took to TikTok to share her top tips for making money on the site.

Increase prices

The first tip from the Vinted expert is to increase the prices of the items you sell.

She said people often sell £40 items for a tenner and then get annoyed when customers offer them £8 for the item.

“Stop selling things for £10,” she said.

“The person buying the item will think you are desperate for money.”

Large portfolio

Hannah told us that you need to list at least 100 items on your page to make a lot of money on Vinted.

She said, “You may be uploading stuff every Sunday, but the more you have, the more likely you are to sell regularly and make a steady income.”

Clear photos

Hannah said that for sales it’s important to take photos in bright daylight and use a bright, white background.

She said, “If you shoot something in the dark and it’s all pixelated, you’re not helping yourself.”

Don’t accept all offers

Hannah explained that you shouldn’t just accept any bids on Vinted, but only accept them if they are 10-15% lower than the price on your listing.

The Vinted pro said it can sometimes take months for items to sell, but added that eventually someone will buy the clothes for the price you listed them for.

She said: “I’ve had ridiculous offers and thought, ‘I could use the money now,’ but I’ve left it there and a few weeks later the stuff is selling for what I wanted.”

Do I have to pay tax on items I sell on Vinted?

FAST tax facts from the Vinted team…

  • The only time an item is taxable is if it sells for more than £6,000 and there is a profit (sells for more than you paid for it). Even then you can use your £3,000 tax-free capital gains allowance to offset it.
  • Generally, only business sellers who trade for profit (buying goods with the intention of selling them for more than they paid for them) are required to pay tax. Business sellers who trade for profit can take advantage of a £1,000 tax-free allowance, which has been in place since 2017.

Hannah said that with this tactic you could see a difference of a few hundred kilos by the end of the year.

Free packaging

The final tip from the Vinted seller is not to waste money on expensive packaging materials from the post office.

She said that if you go to eBay and type in “plastic shipping bags” you can get a bundle for a bargain price.

Hannah’s video, which was posted under the username @hannahbevingtonhas probably impressed many people, as the video has been viewed more than 85,000 times on the video platform.

TikTok users rushed to the video’s comments section to share their thoughts.

One person said, “I totally agree with you about the prices.”

A second person said: “I’ve made about £900 since I started selling!”

A third person added: “I absolutely agree with all of these things.

“There are so many people who ask for far too little.”
