Depop has introduced verified badges (the small blue tick on top of a profile image) to reduce the risk of impersonation on the platform. We give these badges to brands, community leaders*, celebrities, public figures and Top Sellers** our team has verified as authentic and trustworthy. We do this to keep Depop a safe marketplace where you know who you’re doing business with.
At this time, verified badges are given to accounts our team has identified as high-risk for impersonation, and can not be applied for. Verified badges can be lost if an account infringes on our Terms of Service.
*Community Leaders are a small team of trusted and experienced Depop users who work very closely with Depop to help grow, guide and educate our community. Verified Community Leaders pro-actively reach out to members of the community to communicate on behalf of Depop and with this, we feel it is important to highlight these users with a verified badge - as a sign of them being a trusted figure within our community.
** Top Sellers are the sellers who we identify as the most trustworthy and engaged sellers in the Depop community. In order to qualify to be a Depop Top Seller you need to be a seller who either: has sold over 50 items per month over the past 6 months (with an average item price above £15) or you have sold over £2000 worth of items each month over the past 6 months.
