Great Photos = More Sales.

Having amazing pictures in your Poshmark listings is one of the most important parts of creating a great listing. But don’t fret – read these simple tips to make the most out of your photos!

1. Style your Covershot

Your Covershot is the very first photo in your listing – and first impressions definitely count, so be sure to wow potential buyers by including a gorgeous Covershot in your listings! We find that if you wear your item in your Covershot to show how you would style it, the chances of selling your item are much greater.

2. Pick the right setting

Where you take your pictures is as equally important when creating a listing. You want to be sure that what you’re trying to sell is what stands out – not the pile of clothes sitting on your bed in the background!

If you’re taking your photos at home, we suggest picking an area of your house that’s clean, free of clutter, and has natural light beaming through.

3. Take clear, bright photos

One of the most-convenient things about Poshmark is that you can snap the photos for your listing using your phone (easy-breezy!). And while the camera on the phone is pretty amazing, the lighting and coloring of the photos can sometimes be less-than-ideal depending on the environment in which the photos are taken.

This is why snapping your photos in natural lighting is preferred, but we know that’s not always possible. Luckily, there are plenty of apps that will quickly correct the exposure and tone of your pictures, such as Snapseed, Photoshop Express and VSCO Cam.

4. Include a variety of photos

We strongly encourage including as many photos of the item you are trying to sell to give potential buyers a better idea of what the item really looks like from multiple angles. Some ideas of the photos to include in your listings are:

  1. A clear styled shot of the product on you.
  2. A full front shot of the product lying flat or against a clean, contrasting surface.
  3. A full back shot of the product lying flat or against a clean, contrasting surface.
  4. A detail shot of the product, showing any special details or pointing out any possible minor defects or wear.

  1. Honestly, your emphasis on using the phone for colors should include making sure the color of the item in the picture is the same as the color it has in real life. I love Poshmark. But twice now I’ve bought an item and been stumped by flash and filters into thinking an item looks like something it’s not. You guys provide photo filters when you post an item so maybe you approve of this practice but a nice thing in your criteria selections along with size, brand, tag should be color.

    1. Hi Monique! Thanks for your feedback, we will be sure to pass it along to the team. One way to help is to ask the seller questions if the color is not clear. Hope that helps!

      1. I also love Posh and the ability to buy and sell online in such a wonderful community! I also believe that color options should be a manual button adjusted by the seller. I noticed on my desktop that my item color was labeled “color:pink” under the listing (this was an automated feature), when in fact, it was blue, and PINK was the brand name. I would love to see this option available to be edited so the buyer does not get confused. I also have learned to include color detail in the description to help with understanding! Thank you, Poshmark team, for making PM the best app to buy and sell great fashions!
