We introduce the notion of Lipschitz p-compact operators. We show that they can be seen as a natural extension of the linear p-compact operators of Sinha and Karn and we transfer some properties of the linear case into the Lipschitz setting. Also, we introduce the notions of Lipschitz-free p-compact operators and Lipschitz locally p-compact operators. We compare all these three notions and show different properties. Finally, we exhibit examples to show that these three notions are different.
