There comes a day in a woman’s life when you realize the items in your closet could earn you money! Money to spend on amazing things…like more things to put in your closet.
Seriously though, now that you’ve found Poshmark, the largest destination for buying and selling fashion and accessories, let’s get you on track to earning some major cash. Read on for the full rundown on how the Poshmark selling process works.
Create a listing in your closet
You can’t make money without selling items! Once you’ve looked over what you are able to sell on Poshmark, use the app to create a listing. Each of your listings automatically comes with the option to “Buy Now” and a “Make An Offer.” Note that you won’t see these buttons on your own listings since you can’t buy your own items. Rest assured, everyone else can. Make sure your items are seen and share, share, share within the app and to your social networks.
Made a sale? First things first…
You’ve made your very first sale? Congrats! Now it’s time to get the item to your buyer. Our system will automatically send you a shipping label for you to print, just ensure that your profile information is complete. If you didn’t get the label or can’t find the email, that’s no problem. You can download it directly from the app or the web.
Carefully package your item in the correct box
Now that you’ve made a sale and located your shipping label, you’ll have to package your item. make sure that you package your item with care. You want to make sure that it gets to the buyer in pristine condition.
It’s important that you take the proper steps to avoid any shipping mishaps. Poshmark sends all packages through USPS Priority Mail, so make sure you a Priority Mail box or envelope or another sturdy box you might have around the house. Just be sure you don’t get a USPS box that says “Flat Rate” on it, as it’s a separate class of mail than just Priority Mail. Using a Flat Rate box could cause delays and your buyer might not receive the package. Pro tip: you can order the correct boxes directly from USPS.com for free!
Ship your item to the buyer
Now that you have your package ready to go, securely tape the shipping label to the box and either take it to your local US Post Office or have your postal carrier pick it up right from your house. Once the USPS has received the package, it is scanned into our system. It’s that easy!
Get paid when the item is accepted
Once the buyer receives your package and has accepted the item, your earnings will be automatically deposited into your Poshmark account. Buyers have up to three days to accept the item and after that, the funds are automatically released to you, the seller.
Note that Poshmark takes a commission for each sale, which is used to ensure credit card safety and provide support from Poshmark to help create a fun, safe and ever-improving platform for our Poshers. For every sale over $15 that is made, you keep 80% of your sale. For any order under $15, there is a flat commision fee of $2.95. When you list an item, we make sure you know exactly what you’re making. Just check out the “My Earnings” section on the listing and you can see how much you will make for that sale price.
Spend or save your earnings
Your purchase is complete and there’s money to spend. Woohoo! You can keep your earnings as credit in your Poshmark account and spend it within the app. Or if you’d prefer to have your earnings as cash, you can either set up direct deposit to your bank or have a check sent to you. On the app, you can simply go to My Account and choose My Balance. From there, you will be able to see your Posh Credit, Redemption Amount, and your Pending Amount. Just click on Redemption Amount and let us know if you’d like a direct deposit (which takes 2 to 3 business days) or a check (which takes 8 to 10 business days).

I am still setting up, my question is whether I can handprint the usps label when they arrive for pick up to ship..my printer is broken.
