Reserving items

We understand that you may be interested in an item but can’t buy it right away. We believe that every item on Vinted is unique and should be available to anyone. That’s why we don’t allow holds on our platform.

If you want to prevent someone from buying the item before you, try contacting the seller through the comments section or buy the item immediately. Sellers sometimes agree to raise the price of an item to make it a lot less attractive to other members until you are able to buy it. 

You can also make them an offer, which may gives you a few more days before you have to pay.

Unfortunately, if someone does pay for the item first, there’s nothing we can do. The person who buys the item first is the official buyer.
