Below are common abbreviations and phrases found on Poshmark:

  2. Feed: Your Feed is the first tab in the Poshmark app that allows you to see the activity for the people you follow, including new listings and listings they share. You can also access ‘My Likes’ and ‘Search’ directly from the Feed.
  3. Following: Following another person on Poshmark means that you love their style and want to see their new listings, as well as the listings they share on your main Feed. To follow someone, click the blue ‘Follow’ button at the top-right hand corner of a closet. You can keep track of who you’re following at the top of your Poshmark closet.
  4. Followers: Followers are the people on Poshmark who love your style and are keeping track of your closet. Every time you add something new to your closet or share a listing, your followers will see this activity on their main Feeds.

Posh Party: Posh Parties are virtual shopping parties that happen in the Poshmark app. Join the Poshmark Team and hundreds of thousands of women across the country for a Party where you can share your listings to all Party goers, shop other Party goers’ listings, and discover new people (and their closets) to follow.

  1. I see the abbreviation ISO often, usually when someone is just looking for a particular item. Can anyone tell me what this stands for?

  2. Please tell me you’ve found a solution to the photos being flipped upside down? I’ve tried the third party app flipping and now it’s turning them sideways? Help please. 😦 I just want to make my first item listing!

  3. what does it mean when someone adds one of your items “to a bundle”. but aren’t bundling it with other things from your closet?

    • Hi Allison, this means that someone was in the process of adding items to a bundle via our Bundle feature. If only one item was added, perhaps it was done by mistake or they decided against adding another item.

    • Some poshers do this for important items as well as what was stated by PM. Items that I dont want to get lost in my sea of “likes”, often are place in a bundle. This way, i can find it more easily because that section is not as full as my LIKES section. I do that with purchases I want to buy within the next few weeks and also with closets I want to follow up with just in case they add new items before that purchase, which i then add it to my bundle. Could be a half a dozen reasons but except it as a good sign:)

  4. Hello! I just read the info up top. Is there a way to clear out when someone is following You notifications….etc….from awhile back? Like a year ago?

  5. Regarding photos flipping you may try the following: Go to photo gallery, select original photo, click edit, click rotate and save edited pict. Go back and Post Edited Photo. Hope this helps. If there is a more direct way, I’m eager to hear!!! Thanks much.

  6. Quick question: I often see my listed items being added to “bundles” then they are never sold 😦 what does this mean? Are posher just contemplating on buying my items?

  7. Does anyone knits why when I yet to share someone’s closet, it didn’t give the option to share to my followers? Only to social pages???

  8. Question, not comment!!! Why isn’t there a way to search for a particular seller? It’s so frustrating!! I have favorite closets and am unable to enter their username and go directly there… Why doesn’t posh have this feature??? C’mon!!

  9. Suggestion: When someone purchases an item from you, You should be able to automatically pull up their user name to message them thanking them for the sale and letting them know shipping status. I have inadvertently messaged the wrong person because posh doesn’t automatically add their user ID to my list of pre-filled people. Please add this.
