Posh Tip: Shipping Your Poshmark Sales!

Yay you made a sale on Poshmark! Now what? Without further adieu, here’s a post with some helpful tips on packaging, shipping boxes, and how to prep your shipment before it goes out to the excited recipient!

Posh Tip #1: Make sure you’re using the correct box!

Boxes labeled “Priority” at the post office are free (woop woop!) and a great option if you don’t have packaging materials at home. They come in a variety of sizes, so it’s easy to find the one that fits your recently-sold Rebecca Minkoff bag or lace cocktail dress. Don’t have time to drop by the post office to pick them up? Don’t fret! You can request for them online and have them dropped off at home!

Also, a standard brown box (like the one pictured below) that you have lying around your house could work too. Just make sure that it’s the appropriate size for what you’re shipping out and ensure the label is clearly affixed to the box.

Boxes that cannot be used are labeled “Priority Flat Rate,” “Regional Rate,” and “Express Mail.”  Be careful when you’re picking these boxes up at USPS or ordering them online because they look very similar to the “Priority Mail” boxes that you can use. An example of a “Priority Flat Rate” box (that can’t be used!) is below.

Posh Tip #2: It’s all in the details!

We all love getting pretty little things sent to us in the mail, so why not add a special touch to your sale to make your buyer just that much happier with their purchase from you. Wrap your item in cute tissue paper and include a note to thank your buyer. Check out our blog post for tips on packaging.

Posh Tip #3: Placing your item in the mail

Your package is neatly put together and ready for delivery…now what?! If your parcel is small enough, you may slip it in the nearest blue USPS mail box. For packages that are too large to fit, you can either drop it off at the post office or schedule for a pick up via USPS’ site. Easy breezy.

Lastly, if you want to track your item to see where it is on it’s journey after you’ve shipped it out, make note of the USPS tracking number on the label that was originally emailed to you by Poshmark and plug it in here.

We hope that all these tips have helped you along in getting your Poshmark sales packaged and out the door. Cheers to many sales ahead and, as always, Happy Poshmarking!

  1. Hello, I need the label so that I can ship my item. I sent you a message on Friday and still have not gotten the label nor a response back yet.

    • Hi LaToya, your shipping label should be attached to the email telling you that your item was sold. Please check the email account – and spam folder, just in case! – of the address associated with your Poshmark account. Thanks!

    • Hi Diya, your shipping label should be attached to the email telling you that your item was sold. Please check the email account – and spam folder, just in case! – of the address associated with your Poshmark account.

  2. Hi. When you send the label via email and it is dated, how long do I have to get it to the post office? For example, I was emailed my label Saturday night but can’t get to the post office until Monday. Do I need to request a new label for the date I actually take it to the post office?
    Thanks!

  3. The post office wants to charge extra on top of the mailing label provided for a priority mail box versus bag. I am trying to ship shoes.

  4. The post office where I live told me that the shipping label date needs to match the day I am shipping or else it’s fraud??!!! I noticed however; that the date on the label reflects the customers purchase date. Please help!

    • Hi Joan, the flat rate shipping fees are managed by Poshmark and therefore unable to be adjusted by sellers. If you wanted to offer your customers a deal, you could give them $5 their purchase to make up for shipping.

  5. I accidentally ship the wrong item to the buyers.
    I had two orders on the same day and I used the wrong shipping label on each items.
    What’s the best way to handle this situation?

      • I have never recieved a Sold Confirmation email from Poshmark which is why I don’t think I can find the shipping lable. Where would that email have gone and who would it have been from? I have put “Poshmark” into my search engin and it is not bringing up anything in any of my email boxes?

  8. The table for extra shipping only goes up to 10lbs. What if my box weighs more than 10lbs. I’m shipping multiple shoes (8 pair). Do I have to break down the bundle into multiple bundles?

  9. I have been waiting on a label all day. I have emailed and requested another label to be resent still nothing! Now I cannot send my package till maybe Tuesday due to the holiday. That’s not cool

  10. Does my label need to be printed on sticker paper or could it just be printed out on regular printer paper then taped onto my box?:)

  11. I recently sold an item and as I was about to print out the shipping label I realized it was my old address, completely different state. I updated my address just now but how can I get a new ship in label sent to me with my updated address? I need to ship tomy buyer asap

  12. A buyer bought 2 of my listings, how can I just ship them together? I now have 2 shipping labels or do I have send them separately?

  14. I am trying to send a small cloth taggie that weighs only .8th of a pound. Your standard label is 5 pounds or under. It would take me $25 to send this item to CA when I only made $7. It’s there another label for tiny items so shipping wo t cost more then the item?

  15. I just sold a bundle that is large in volume and requires two boxes. Can I purchase the second shipping label thru you? I need an additional label for a 3 lb box. Can You help?

  16. Do they deliver packages on Saturdays? I know some company’s don’t. I just want to know if it will be tomorrow or Monday when I get my items.

    • Hi Wmriley, All Poshmark orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. It should take 2 or 3 days once shipped. Tracking information is also available within the app.

  17. I made my first sale and now I’m really sure on how to do the shipping part. I got a email with a prepaid mailing label so do I just cut that out and glue it to the box or am I suppose to receive an actual mailing label sticker?

  18. Hi there,
    This is the first time I gonna send a package so I have doubts.
    I am going to send is a box 9-1/2″×12-1/2″. Do you think this type of boxes fit in those blue USPS mail box? Or I need to go to the post office? And also it does matter if the label has a diferent date than the day I’m shipping?

    • Hi Doris, It may be best to be safe and try the Post Office. No, it doesn’t matter if the date is different on the label than the shipping date, but please try to ship as quickly as possible.

  19. I got an email that my item is sold and it says: “Please go to the order page in the Poshmark App or website and provide some additional information we need, so we can send you the pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label.” When I go to that part of the site and click the link, it is entirely broken. I emailed support and havent gotten a response

  20. I’m at the post office now and they won’t take my packages bc the date on the shipping label is the date the items were sold which was yesterday and the day before and not today. I told them there was no way I could change this myself. They told me that my only other option was to pay for shipping. What do I do?

  21. Where is “add to bundle” button i don’t see it at all i have a lady who want a to buy 3 pieces from my closet but i don’t know How to bundle please help

    • Hi Nanda, You can find the Add to Bundle button near Like, Comment and Share buttons. You can also access it on the app when you are on a listing, click the upper right hand action icon and select Add to Bundle.

  22. I’mean new to this. I didn’t read directions clearly. I shipped my package through UPS instead of the postal service so will that be an error in my delivery and also will there be a problem with me getting paid?
