Some of you may have seen the news regarding Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and its impact on some marketplaces’ ability to issue customer redemptions. I want to assure everyone in our seller community that all accounts on Poshmark continue to be safe and secure. We do not use SVB to store customer or marketplace funds, and your ability to process payments and redemptions is not affected.
Sincerely, John McDonald Chief Operating Officer, Poshmark

One of the biggest questions we get is: How can I make more sales on Poshmark? We dug into some seller data and created the following guide to share key insights for seller success.
Timing matters. Stock up for seasons ahead of time to capitalize on peak sales.
Shoppers look for seasonal items before that season starts—don’t miss a key opportunity to have what they’re looking for, when they’re looking for it.
#POSHTIP: Turn on Trends push notifications in the Account tab to get the scoop on new trends every morning—this can help you forecast for next season’s must-have items.
Stock up on a variety of trending brands. Capture shopper interest by adding trending brands to your closet. Here are some signs you should keep an eye out for to know when a brand is trending:
Brands that gain momentum slowly and surely over time are usually safe bets to source for your closet.
When brands have collabs or a major cultural moment, their sales peak and slow fast—catch them right before the spike!
Social media trends translate into Poshmark sales—stay ahead of the game by keeping your eye out for the next big thing.
List fresh inventory. New listings that shoppers have not yet seen are 2X more likely to sell in a given period over copied and relisted listings. They also show up when shoppers filter their search by ‘Just In,’ and may be featured in Poshmark marketing emails or posts!
Rotate your closet with Reposh.Reposhed listings sell 30% faster than fresh listings!
#POSHTIP: Review your past purchases and use the Reposh feature to cycle through items with proven shopper interest.
Give copied or relisted listings a refresh. Increase your copied or relisted listing’s visibility with new shoppers by optimizing your listings. The more detail you provide, the more information a shopper has to make their purchasing decision. Here are some #POSHTIPS to help your listings stand out:
Add photos with a white or simple background so shoppers can accurately visualize your item. Check out our Photography Guide for inspo!
Add relevant, descriptive keywords like style terms, trends, patterns, and materials that shoppers may be searching for.
Add up to 3 applicable Style Tags so it has a chance to show up in Poshmark marketing and social media.
Check out Today’s Trends on the Shop tab to see what shoppers are searching for, and add those keywords and Style Tags to your relevant listings!
List consistently. In a given week, 94% of Poshmark sales go to sellers who have listed that week!
Embrace your offers. Shoppers love deals.
67% of all sales on Poshmark happen through offers. Send Offer To Likers to engage shoppers with a can’t-miss discount.
50% of daily Poshmark sales are from listings that a shopper sees for the first time that day. Act swiftly and send offers when shoppers are most interested!
30% of all lowball offers (50% less below listing price) result in a sale when countered. Respond to all buyer offers.
Price competitively. Do competitive pricing research and price within the ranges that shoppers can filter by when they search.
