Simplified Lower-Priced Shipping and Commission Change

Over the past year, you’ve given us valuable feedback about ways we could help you achieve even greater success selling fashion items in your closet. One of your most frequent requests is for lower shipping fees to encourage buyers to purchase more. We’ve also heard that you love the ease and simplicity of selling on Poshmark, but we know we can do more. Therefore, we’re so excited to announce that we have partnered with the United States Postal Service (USPS) to bring you PoshPost, a new, simpler shipping label exclusive for Poshers.

PoshPost officially launches this Thursday, March 20th at 12:00 a.m. PT. If you have any questions, check out our FAQs. We’ll also be taking questions here.

Introducing $4.99 shipping on all orders.  We will reduce the shipping rate for buyers from $6.99 to $4.99 for any order under twenty-five dollars. This means that all orders, no matter the price, will ship at the same low rate of $4.99. We know your buyers will be very excited about this change, which means more sales for everyone. Think of this as a permanent shipping promo! Learn more.

Up to 5 pounds for free with PoshPost.  In addition to continuing to provide a free shipping label when you make a sale, PoshPost increases your free weight allowance to 5 lbs. (up from the current two pound limit). Now you can ship a large bundle, those knee-high boots, or that handbag with a lot of hardware, worry free and without having to pay for an upgraded label. The new 5 pound label helps keep selling on Poshmark simple and fun.  Learn more.

Flat Poshmark commission for orders less than $15.  In order to support lower-priced shipping for all orders and provide a more robust label to simplify shipping we are making our first ever change to our commission. Beginning March 20, 2014, we will be changing our commission for orders less than $15 to a single flat rate of $2.95. Commission for orders $15 and up will remain unchanged at 20% of the selling price. This also means that all items below $3 will no longer be available for purchase on Poshmark. Learn more.

To give you a better sense of how these changes might affect you, here are two examples:

EXAMPLE 1:

  • Listing: White blouse with black buttons
  • Sale price: $12
  • Weight: 0.5 pounds

EXAMPLE 2:

  • Listing: Bundle (3 pairs of shoes, 2 tops)
  • Sale price: $35
  • Weight: 4 pounds

  1. Can we still use the fee boxes from USPS? I tried to ship something with a priority mail flat rate box, and it did not work. Do i need a box for 2 day priority?

  2. But small cheaper items shoul be able to ship first class mail. I recently sold brand new h and m tights for $3 or $4 and shipping was $4.99 and weight well under 13 oz. my payout was only .05! I know that was due to push marks commission and not shipping but, the buyer would have paid more for the tights if shipping were lower. It’s hard to sell smaller and cheaper items on here wth 4.99 shipping. For small items, 2.95 would be ideal
