Is it best to sell on Vinted or Ebay? 

While both Vinted and eBay offer valuable opportunities for fashion resale businesses, each platform has its unique advantages. Vinted's specialized focus on fashion and sustainability appeals to an audience passionate about curated fashion finds. On the other hand, eBay's broad reach and diverse user base may appeal to sellers seeking a more generalized marketplace and looking to reach eBay’s best-performing markets (North America, UK, Germany…). Ultimately, the decision between Vinted and eBay depends on your specific business goals, target audience, and selling preferences.
