How to Prep for the Poshmark Wholesale Portal

Portal_Launch_Web_2X_1400

Eager to take your closet to the next level (um, yes!)? We’re here to help you prep for this major expansion coming to Poshmark soon.

What is the Wholesale Portal?
It’s a place (in the app!) where certified Poshmark sellers will be able to purchase wholesale inventory, in bulk, from brands they know and love, at competitive prices.

How will the Wholesale Portal work?
It’s easy! You’ll buy bulk inventory from the Wholesale Portal in the app, have it shipped directly to your door, then list it as NWT Retail inventory and sell it at retail prices in your Poshmark closet.

The only difference? Each listing in the Wholesale Portal will represent a pack of 5 items. 

How can I prepare?
1. Make a list and check it twice. Do your customers love jewelry? Shoes? Make a list to be ready to buy when the portal is live.
2. Set aside some funds to shop. Inventory in the portal will range in price and we’ll have options for all budgets.
3. Complete our Retail Certification. You’ll need this to gain access to the Wholesale Portal.

Retail on Poshmark: FAQs

The most frequently asked questions about Retail, Boutiques and the Wholesale Portal.

Q: What does NWT Retail mean?

Q: What is Retail Certification?
A: Retail Certification is a quick and easy in-app certification, required for all sellers that want to tag a listing as NWT Retail.

Q: What requirements do I have to follow once I’m retail certified?
A: We ask our sellers to follow a few simple requirements once they’re Retail Certified:

  1. Listings must follow our definition of NWT Retail: purchased wholesale from a distributor, and sold for the first time.
  2. NWT Retail listings should only include original photography.
  3. NWT Retail sellers should provide exceptional customer service and should comply with Poshmark’s policies.

A: To be eligible, you must have 10+ sales on Poshmark, have an average rating of 4.5+, and have completed our retail certification.

Q: What is a Boutique?
A: A Boutique is a Poshmark seller carrying NWT Retail inventory. They are focused on stocking beautiful inventory and creating a stylized, elevated shopping experience, just like you’d find in a brick and mortar boutique.

Q: How can I become a Boutique?
A: The easiest way to turn your closet into a Boutique is to purchase your first batch of wholesale inventory directly from our Wholesale portal, right within the Poshmark app. All sellers that have completed 10 or more sales are eligible to purchase from this portal. You can access the portal from the Account Tab → Retail Tools.
