We take your safety seriously

Vinted is focused on maintaining a high standard of personal security for our members. We work proactively to create tools and policies that help our community thrive — whether you’re buying or selling. Here’s what you should know about our key safety processes.

Buyer protection

When you pay through Vinted, our mandatory Buyer Protection is applied to your order. It helps ensure safe payments, gives you the right to claim a refund, and access customer support. Learn how we calculate the Buyer Protection fee

Refund policy

We’ll issue a refund if your item doesn't arrive, arrives damaged, or is not as described. You have 2 days to submit a claim. Unless agreed otherwise, the buyer covers return fees. Find out more about Vinted’s refund and returns policy.

Secure transactions

Your money is held securely throughout the entire transaction. All Vinted payments are encrypted. They’re handled by our trusted payment partners, whose secure technology makes sure money is sent and received safely and reliably.

Our support

You can reach out to us 24/7, and we’ll see every issue through to its resolution. For quick tips, visit our Help Center.

Platform security

Anti-spam tools

We proactively run systems that spot inappropriate content. Much like the spam filters in your email, they work to automatically block suspicious content in messages.

Data protection

We take your privacy seriously. For detailed information on how we handle your personal data and what rights you have in this regard, read our Privacy Policy.

Risk scoring

We use predictive analytics to flag and instantly evaluate suspicious activity, listings and orders. That way, our team can take action before any harm occurs.

We help build trust within our community


Vinted’s secure messaging tool helps you find out every detail about the item you’d like to purchase. You can message any member — just remember that you’ll instantly increase their trust in you by being polite and considerate.


Vinted members can leave feedback for each other only after a completed order — so the feedback you see on people’s profiles is based on actual experiences. Take a close look at the feedback left by other members, and remember to leave feedback after an order to receive it in return.

Get verified

To instantly boost your trustworthiness, take a moment to verify your account on Vinted. If you’d like to see whether another member has verified their account, simply click through to their profile.

Be proactive

Fill out your profile with information — being proactive increases trust, which can also give your sales a boost. And if you see something that falls short of our community standardsreport it so our team can take care of things.
