Depop was founded by Simon Beckerman in 2011 as a social network where readers of PIG magazine could buy items from the young creatives featured in the magazine. After realising that Depop needed a selling function, Simon re-envisioned the app as a marketplace and a mobile space where you can see what your friends and the people you’re inspired by are liking, buying and selling.
Today, Depop is a place where millions of users come to celebrate their style and discover culture. The company is headquartered in London, with offices in Manchester, New York, Los Angeles and Sydney. Depop is powered by a team of around 400 people, dedicated to our mission of fashion for a better future.
In 2021, Depop became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Etsy - the global marketplace for unique and creative goods - and continues to operate as a standalone company.
