The most frequently asked questions about Retail, Boutiques and the Wholesale Portal.
Q: What does NWT Retail mean?
A: An item is NWT Retail if it was purchased wholesale, directly from a distributor, and is being sold to the public for the first time. Items purchased from a store for the purpose of reselling are not considered Retail.
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:
- Listings must follow our definition of NWT Retail: purchased wholesale from a distributor, and sold for the first time.
- NWT Retail listings should only include original photography.
- NWT Retail sellers should provide exceptional customer service and should comply with Poshmark’s policies.
Q: How do I get access to Retail Certification?
A:. You can access the Retail Certification from the Poshmark Support Center in your Account tab in app. (Or by clicking HERE)
Q: What is the Wholesale Portal?
A: 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.
Q: Who gets access to the Wholesale Portal?
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.
