Unlike other online selling marketplaces, StockX builds authenticity into every step. Every item bought or sold must be brand new or never worn. Additionally, their global team of expert authenticators verifies all products to make sure they're up to their standards. This gives buyers peace of mind knowing they’re paying for the real deal.
That being said, if you’re no longer using your StockX account, it’s a good idea to delete it. This account contains a lot of sensitive information like your transaction history, payment details, and personal information. Whether you’re deleting your own account or a loved one’s account as part of your executor duties, here’s how to get started.
How to Delete Your Own StockX Account
If you want to delete your own StockX account, it’s a relatively straightforward process. As long as you have your account information, you can continue with the simple steps below. However, before you delete your account, make sure you’ve finished any incomplete transactions to ensure there are no interruptions to your orders or sales.
1. Decide how you’d like to delete your account
StockX believes users should be in full control of their personal details. This is good news, and it means you have a lot of options when it comes to removing your personal information. There are two different options to support account changes:
- Delete: First, you can delete your account outright. This is when you request all of your information, profile, and details to be removed fully from the website.
- Billing information: If you’re just looking to protect your payment information, you can request the support team to only delete your billing information. This removes your billing and shipping information, along with any existing credit cards you have on file.
It’s important to note that StockX must keep some user information archived for legal and tax purposes. They are fully GDPR and privacy law compliant, and they are willing to work with you to make sure you feel comfortable with your account details. If you’ve decided to delete your account for good, continue with the steps below.
2. Visit the Trust Center
At the StockX Trust Center, you have access to information about your privacy and online security. Since this is an online marketplace, there are a lot of personal details you might be worried about. This is an important part of managing your digital identity.
Through the Trust Center, you can submit a request to remove your account or delete your billing information. Once you’re on the Trust Center homepage, select Submit Request to proceed.
3. Confirm your request
Next, you’ll be taken to the Trust Center request page. You’ll see the different types of requests you can make. In this case, you can request account deletion. All of your personal data will be deleted, and this is an irreversible process.
You cannot access these details once you’ve submitted your request. To continue, select that you’re submitting this request for yourself. Next, click Delete as your request type.
4. Complete the Subject Rights Request
Once you’re on the Subject Rights Request form, enter all of the required information. You need to know the email associated with your account, your first name, last name, StockX username, and residency status (CA or EU resident). Finally, complete the captcha to confirm you’re not a bot. When you’ve checked all of your details are correct, click submit.
5. Receive your confirmation
Lastly, you should receive a confirmation of your submission to delete your StockX account via email. Keep all of these confirmations for your records. Once deleted, you’ll no longer have access to your account. At this time, delete the account from your password manager and uninstall the app.
How to Delete a Deceased Loved One’s StockX Account
If you’re wondering what to do when someone dies, you might need to delete their unused accounts. These digital profiles can compromise your loved one’s identity and security. By being proactive about deleting them, you keep their information safe.
1. Compile key account information

Alternatively, you can find details about their account through the app on their device or their email inbox. The more information you have, the easier it will be to delete their account.
2. Log in using the steps above
