I've been meaning to post a Poshmark review for months, but I've been too busy selling on Poshmark! My girlfriend introduced me to the online selling/shopping site and I love it! You can post NWT items (new with tags) or pre-owned items. The vast selection ranges from clothes and fashion accessories to beauty and home decor.
Posting is easy - take detailed photos, create a description and list at a lower price (than original retail price). I've been selling on Poshmark for just over a year and it's shocking how much money (I'm not sharing the exact digits) I have made selling pre-owned fashion items.
I'm a self-proclaimed fashion addict and I say this with a little embarrassment - There's too many NWT items in my closet. Thankfully, I was able to sell most of them and make back the money I spent. Poshmark does charge a fee and it can be hefty for the pricey items.
This online selling/shopping site is super easy to use. This platform kinda works like Instagram, but for selling and buying items. You can only share your items with your followers, so I suggest spending the first few weeks bulking up that number. In the beginning, I followed about 1000 users per week. I currently follow 52,000+ Poshers and gained 31,000+ followers.
It's important to grow your network, cause these Posmark users can share your items to their followers on PM, as well as other platforms - Like Twitter. Followers may like your items to show interest and add them to their bundle to gain a discount. As a seller, you can send a discounted price to everyone that liked your listing - I find this is a great way to sell, so it's important to stay on top of your PM news feed.
As a buyer, you can make offers less than the listed price. I usually accept reasonable offers and have sold almost all of my listings below asking price.
Poshmark parties are also an excellent way to gain followers and sell items. Each party is a specific genre and many have a list of accepted brand names. It's wise to post in these parties and share as many other posts as possible, so Poshers share you're items back. One or more of your items may get chosen as by a party host - This will put your item in the Host Picks feed.
Selling on Poshmark is time consuming. You have to stay involved. In the beginning, I spent a lot of time bulking up my followers. Now I post new items, join parties daily and have sold 64 items out of the current 125 listed.
When you sell an item on Poshmark, it's practically no returns - Unless the item is far from what your description and photos present. Buyers have three days after receiving the item to make a claim and will rate the product. Shipping time and ratings are important. Followers may reference your stats before buying, so you want good stats.
Poshmark has an authentication process for expensive, luxury items. The item will first ship to Poshmark to authenticate the designer item and then send it to the buyer. I love this feature - It gives the buyer a sense of protection and security. That's not to say Poshers don't post faux items - Just look at the price and if it's too good to be true - Don't buy it.
I've added a Poshmark widget to my blog. I often get emails asking to buy my clothing and accessories, so the PM widget is essential to branching out and selling to followers. I encourage you to visit my Poshmark closet by clicking on the widget to the right or visiting poshmark.com - My PM profile name is @mclaughlinkim.
