Pre-loved fashion market Vinted revises delivery in Europe

Vinted: expanding second-hand fashion across Europe

Vinted – Europe’s largest consumer-to-consumer online marketplace for second-hand fashion – has formed a partnership with InPost Group, one of Europe’s leading e-commerce delivery providers, to radically revamp the shipping from Vinted across Europe.

The service will be provided under the InPost brand in the UK, Poland and Italy, and Mondial Relay in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.

The deal will leverage InPost’s extensive cross-border network of 35,000 out-of-home delivery locations across Europe. In the UK, the partnership means Vinted sellers can drop off parcels in one of over 3,000 lockers across the country in seconds and at a time that suits them, for onward delivery to shoppers’ homes. . The partnership aims to make parcel drop-off easy and contactless for second-hand sellers, allowing them to adapt them to their daily lives.

Vytautas Atkočaitis, Director of Shipping at Vinted, says, “As a company focused on providing our members with great choices on how to send and receive packages, with a particular focus on PUDO options and lockers, we are delighted to continue our successful partnership with InPost. and Mondial Relay in several markets in Europe.

“This is our first pan-European delivery partnership, involving all eight markets where we operate, and we are confident that this is just the beginning,” adds InPost CEO Rafał Brzoska. “Our agreement with Vinted proves that InPost has the scale and skills to be a strategic out-of-home delivery partner for businesses operating in European markets, with a particular focus on out-of-home services. We’re happy to be part of Vinted’s shipping solution.

The pan-European partnership will vary by market, for example in Poland, Vinted shoppers will also be able to receive purchases in lockers; offering a cost-effective and convenient option that allows them to receive their purchases at a time that suits them – rather than waiting at home to receive packages. In addition to cost savings compared to home delivery, shipping to company Automatic Parcel Lockers (APM) and other locations reduces CO2 emissions by up to two-thirds in cities compared door-to-door services.
