Depop has revealed plans to expand its presence across Europe and Asia next year to continue growth.

Chief executive Maria Raga said the company would use some of its recent $62 million (£50 million) fundraising to expand further across the US, which already accounts for around 30 per cent of its revenues and user base, PA reported.

Depop’s sales climbed by 85 per cent in 2018 and growth is expected to be maintained this year.

While the ecommerce retailer still has around 60 per cent of its revenues generated in the UK, it remains set on expanding globally.

Moreover, Depop launched a pop-up store in Selfridges’ flagship department store in early August, marking its first branded pop-up store outside the US.

Since being founded in 2011, Depop has gathered over 15 million users.
