Depop: The social shopping app that has thrived in Ireland during lockdown

10 May, 2021

A great feature piece on our portfolio company, Depop in the Irish Times.

According to the article, the platform is particularly popular with Gen Z, allowing them to avoid fast fashion and embrace second-hand clothing.

“Depop, for those unfamiliar, is a social shopping app that allows users to buy and sell clothes, shoes, jewellery and more. Sellers can set up their own shops on the platform and quickly and easily put items up for sale. Buyers, meanwhile, can follow their favourite sellers, like items and even have items suggested to them through an algorithm. In 2019, the Atlantic aptly described it as “a little bit eBay and a little bit Instagram” and that pretty much sums it up. Whether you’re clearing out your wardrobe and looking to make some quick cash or running an actual business, you can make Depop work for you.”
