At Poshmark, we’re all about helping you fall in love with your closet again. How? By selling the fashions you love, but no longer wear and using the money you make to buy what you really love today!
1. List an item for sale. It’s easy and fun! Snap photos of the item you want to sell with your phone, fill out basic information, and…voila! You’ve created a listing!
2. Your item sold! Now what? Print out the shipping label we send you via email, attach it to your package, and send it off USPS. Poshmark will handle everything else!
3. Poshmark will release your money to you once your buyer accepts your item (or 3 days have passed since she received the item)!
4. Take your earnings and use them to buy that designer handbag or gorgeous heels you “Liked” on Poshmark and can’t stop thinking about! Win-win!

I was adding listings to my closet earlier this week and suddenly all of my listings were gone from my closet and I can’t follow anyone, yet others continue following me! I’m so confused and can’t get an answer from Poshmark! Can ANYONE help! I’m so discouraged!
The same thing happened to me. How did you fix your issue
Hi is this matter fix now because I’m having same issues
How do I advertise a sale of my items?
Hi Diane, you can always create a new Not For Sale listing alerting your followers of the sale. Otherwise, see more about our Price Drop Notifications here: http://blog.poshmark.com/2014/07/16/price-drop-notifications-faq/
How do I buy stuff without using my credit card? (Cash I Earned from selling)
Hi Ania, credits or earnings from sales will be automatically applied to your purchase first.
What if i put stuff to sell ,but i dont sell nothing in a month… Do i get charged for something?
Hi Claudia, there is no charge to add listings. Poshmark only takes a fee from sales. Find out more here: poshmark.com/faq.
Why do people follow each other?
Hi Marie, Poshmark is a very social marketplace. Following is a way to make friends and also find deals to shop.
All my items that was on my page are deleted and it won’t let me post nothing why?
When or how offen does .99 shipping offered? And why can’t the shipping label weight and cost increase for the buyer? If bundles or encouraged and offered the shipping should correspond with that as well. Why can’t we have a reserve but for the seller? can we get an option to show more than 4 pictures. Possible a mini video like all other social media. Nothing long though.
Hi KB, shipping promotions are set by Poshmark at various times. As for your other suggestions, thanks for your feedback! We are happy to pass them along to the appropriate teams.
My question is. I bundled 28 items for a customer and she didn’t use the bundle feature. So I took pics of all items and made 3 listings. Should I delete the individual listings since there is a pic of the item in the bundle pics?
Hi Rhonda, it’s up to you whether you want to direct the buyer to the bundle feature or not. It’s still possible to do it the “old fashioned way.” Note that 23 items may require additional postage, which you can do within the app. If you need help, reach out to email@example.com.
Hi! So a couple days ago I purchased shoes on posh and when buying I guess I pressed too quickly and posh used my earnings instead of my card on file, I was wondering is there any way I could reverse that? Like use my card instead of my credits? Please n thank you♡
Hi Michelle, your credits are automatically used before a card is processed. If you need help, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I invited 3 friends to poshmark and I didn’t get my credits yet
Hi Jennifer, please reach out to email@example.com for direct assistance. Thanks!
Can I transfer my balance to my paypal account?
Hi Maddie, currently you can request your earnings to your bank via direct deposit or via check.
Whats the difference between “Credits” and “Redeemable”? Is credits how much money you’ve used from your credit card – and redeemable is how much money you have from your sales? I’m confused about the “Credits” part.
Hi Glynis, credits are earned through referrals or other means outside of selling an item. Those credits are not redeemable as cash. Earnings are redeemable as cash and will be reflected as such.
I want to know I don’t have a printer to printout postmark so what do I need to do.
Hi Tonya, We recommend going to your local library or Kinkos to print out the shipping label. For additional assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to get started & start a closet no problems w taking pic w phone but how would I print labels from my phone to printer? Do I get wireless printer? I don’t know how that part works?
Hi Pamela, the labels are sent attached to the sale confirmation email. So you can print through a computer.
*** as much as possible
Hello Poshmark, I absolutely love this app and I think that this question forum is a great idea. I have come across many different sellers that say they have the same item on another shopping app called Mercari. I’ve been told buy some sellers and have witnessed many sellers telling other people to buy the same item on the other app because they don’t take any money out of their sale, so it’s less money on the app called Mercari. I was just wondering of this was allowed? It seems to me like they should be condoning Poshmark as much apply owed possible, but if there’s a chance they’ll make a sale, they’ll tell you to use the other app. Let me know your thoughts regarding this matter. Thanks!! ♡
Hi Renee, We do not encourage transactions to take place outside of the Poshmark platform, as they don’t qualify for Posh Protect. For more on this, see our FAQs: https://poshmark.com/faq
I have not received my direct deposit and I have been waiting over a week
Hi Armani, for assistance on your specific question, please reach out to email@example.com and someone can help you directly.
I joined at the end of February and don’t list anything until about 3 weeks ago. I have already made 5 sales. One of them was a bundle of 2 pair of jeans. I am loving this app. Thank you!
Hi I’m not sure about this do we need to put the earnings in my taxes at the end of the year. Thanks
Hi Yami, we recommend you consult with a tax professional to discuss this issue.
How do I trade?? Am I supposed to find out the persons email and get the address because idk how to get a shipping label if its not emailed to me!
Hi Julia, while trading is allowed on Poshmark, it is not guaranteed under Posh Protect. For more, see our FAQs: https://poshmark.com/faq
how do I use credit to buy something?
Hi Khrystinah, Your credit should automatically be applied to an order when you go to purchase. If you need further assistance, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you sell something can you only use the money from the sale to purchase other items here? Or will it be put into your bank account? I’m very confused on what happens.
Hi Ashley, you can use it to shop on Poshmark or get cash. See our Posh Guide for more: https://poshmark.com/posh_guide/how_to_get_paid
Hey posh admin!
I referred a couple of my friends and wanted to use my earnings but can’t figure out how to use the “credit” help me out?
Hi Molly, When your friends create an account via the mobile app, there’s a space to include the invite code on the sign up page. If you need more help, reach out to email@example.com.
Do I have to use my earnings on the app or can I direct deposit my earnings etc. If it’s only for the app I don’t know if I am interested in having the app anymore unfortunately..
Hi Darin, yes, you can transfer your earnings to your bank account. Find instructions here: https://poshmark.com/posh_guide/how_to_get_paid. If you need any help, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good for you! Really. But there are those who are severely handicapped and can’t get out to run a boutique. And then you can think about the economy and the cost of living. I don’t have to pay for water, electricity, taxes, etc. that it takes to run a business. It’s the economy that has driven us to PoshMark in the first place. Were in the computer age for sure. There’s stay at home moms too! And the list goes on. I have my own boutique too. It’s right on PoshMark and they pay my bills. It doesn’t get any better then that!
This site is a great tool to get exposure for your business. I have already referred a few boutique owners.
I deleted all my listings because I didn’t sell anything. My items were up for a very long time, but im thinking about giving it another try. Any advise?
Hi Yadira, try this past Posh Tip post with some of our top articles on being a stellar seller: http://blog.poshmark.com/2014/09/04/5-ways-to-be-a-stellar-seller/
Absolutely!! I can’t emphasize any stronger then that. Read everything PoshMark has for you to read. It helps me tremendously. Also there are mentors on PoshMark who will spend as much time as you need and encourage and want you to succeed. I’m still learning myself and I haven’t been here that long and here I am giving advice of what I do know.
When I sell an item then you send me the sticker to put on the package,where can I go print it at? Would cvs or walgreens be fine? Also when I sell something and keep my money on here rather than getting a credit card when I want to buy something can I use my money on here that I earned?
You can print it on any printer, and it needs to be taped to the package. When you sell an item on Poshmark, you can keep it on your Poshmark account to shop or deposit the money into your bank account.
Wherever a printer is. PoshMark suggests a good source. Try your local library. There is no charge, they have computers and if you have a iPad or telephone bring it with you, they also have WiFi. But you must have a library card. If you don’t it only takes a couple of minutes to set one up. If you have a good rapport with your bank, etc. they’ll do it for you also as customer service. Those are usually ma and pa banks though. I imagine there many other ways.
Thank you for creating such a valuable website and app! I like this selling platform a lot. I have a question:
– Why does Poshmark choose USPS instead of UPS?
Well for one it’s a less expensive way to go. Let me put it this way. If you were dealing with the whole of the U.S. and you offered shipping, which would be your method of choice? Would you choose to ship your items for $4.99 or let’s say $15.00. That’s a no brainer.
Once you see someone has made an offer and you want to accept the offer, how do you do it? I see no button that says accept or deny. I edited item price to match offer but not sure what to do for buyer to know I accepted. Thanks.
Hi Sarah, please find more information on Make An Offer: http://blog.poshmark.com/2014/10/09/app-update-introducing-make-an-offer/
Go to the top of the page and click on offers. Then go from there.
After 24 hours you no longer can accept the offer. That might be what happened if you don’t see an accept option. That happened to me before so I messaged the person and told them if they still wanted to make that offer I will accept it. Hope that helps!
Is it true that not only do you take 20% off or sale but that the seller also gets charged the Pay Pal fee as well? If so…is there any way to decline pay pal payments & accept credit only? Just a lil confused on all this…….
Purchasing or selling an item listed on Poshmark using PayPal or any means other than Poshmark checkout is called an “offline transaction” and is prohibited.
When payment for the full value of the item is not exchanged through the Poshmark system, we cannot guarantee that both parties ship and transact as promised. If we don’t process payment, we aren’t able to refund the buyer if something goes wrong (for example, if the seller never ships your item or the item you receive is not as described in the listing). As a result, our Posh Protect buyer protection program does not cover offline transactions. In addition, if we don’t process payment, we can’t guarantee that the seller receives their earnings if they deliver the item as described.
Taking transactions offline is harmful and hurts everyone who plays by the rules. Members who repeatedly take transactions offline will have their future buying and selling privileges restricted on Poshmark.
If you are approached to take a transaction offline, please contact us immediately at email@example.com.
If you make a sale through Poshmark, is it possible to deposit the funds you make into a Paypal account?
Hi Elissa, you can link your earnings to a bank account or receive a check. Learn more about getting paid here: https://poshmark.com/posh_guide/how_to_get_paid
PayPal will not be a issue. PoshMark themselves does all the billing for you. Some people do use PayPal and will ask you to also. Say no. Also create your own advertisement saying No PayPal. They won’t ask and if they do politely remind them that you don’t honor it.
I’ve listed 100 items and not sure if I’m doing everything right.
When someone comments not sure if Thats done proper.
I’m not quite understanding your question. Would you please ask in a different way?
Can you please tell me how to get more followers. I have lots of amazing things and I believe I cant sell them because I don’t have the followers
Follow others and they (most) will follow back
Share, Share, Share! By sharing most Poshers will share back their followers with you. And sit back and watch the sales take off. Always be polite and go out of your way. Mean what you say. Go to as many parties as possible. I pick up people by entering my items that I have listed into each and every party every single day if possible.
All the Best,
Show love to others people closet, start following people closet, That help mw. made a screen shot with a hello message.
Yea I think so too I agree with that and every thing else have. Nice day
Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to use my resemble money to purchase something or if I have to use a credit card.. When I go to buy something it only gives me an option to enter credit card info I always thought I could just use the money I got right from there to purchase things ?
Good morning! You absolutely can use your earnings on here. They need your cars on file but they use your earnings first. They will not charge your card unless you no longer have any money in your redeemable bank.
*card not cars lol
love this so day there should be like a free month to get anything you want that you like for Free
Poshmark is a great way to attain the items you have seen at stores or in catalogs, at deeply discounted prices! You had inquired of a “free” day/month, and actually that kind of happens already! You see, when someone let’s say orders a pair of jeans from me, after already showing or speaking of the things they like in my closet, I send, or INCLUDE, that cute wine colored Express top that they had so expressed that they loved! That’s why its so important to ask questions about individual closets, hit the “like” button for all your likes, and COMMUNICATE with each other!! You never know! You just might get those Aldo shoes you were drooling over, and just couldn’t afford at the moment! Remember, Poshmark is here so women may help other women look and thus feel the BEST they can!! This is just ONE of the AMAZING things about POSHMARK!!
Hi, thanks! I’m happy to sell. This is my first time, not sure what I need to do.
