Why Reviews Matter
Depop includes a feedback system which allows both buyers and sellers rate their experience. Reviews can help build trust and serve as a guide for future transactions. Positive reviews and a high rating will boost your credibility. Negative reviews may deter buyers or sellers.
Depop Review Categories
Depop’s rating system is simple and consists of just three categories.
- Positive: A smiley green face signifies a successful transaction.
- Neutral: A neutral face is a straight grey face that represents a minor issue or an average experience.
- Negative: The red sad face indicates a bad experience such as delayed shipping, incorrect products, or sellers who are unresponsive.
Buyers and sellers both can leave ratings, which are displayed on the user profile.
