So you want to make money selling women’s fashion from your mobile device? First thing’s first: download Poshmark! We have updated our listing process, so make sure you  have the latest update available for free from the App Store and Google Play. As always, you’ll still be able to list an item for sale in less than a minute. 

Next, follow this step-by-step guide to optimize your listing so it will be seen by the millions of shoppers on Poshmark. Whether they’re browsing or searching, these tips are proven to connect prospective buyers with your item.

Photos

Perhaps the most important part of your listing is the first photo in your listing, a.k.a. the Covershot. Like a storefront window, you want to present your item in an appealing way to attract buyers. Be sure to include photos of your item from multiple angles and highlight important details.

What Are You Selling?

The listing title is prime real estate. Not only is it highly visible in browse, but it’s also essential for search discoverability. It’s best to be precise, concise and accurate. We recommend including the following, if applicable: brand name, item type, color and material.

Describe it!

Give as many relevant details as possible, such as color, feature, notes on fit and size, condition, fabric type and measurements. Being as descriptive as possible can make a buyer click the Buy Now button faster!

Spelling and style types also are very important, especially when shoppers are using search to find items. Be sure to reference our Fashion Glossary for help.

Category

We’ve enhanced categories and added subcategories to help your items get discovered! Be as accurate as possible in selecting the appropriate options.

Size

We recommend selecting pre-determined sizes when applicable. Many shoppers take advantage of our My Size filter, and custom sizes won’t appear in these results. If your item can fit multiple sizes or has non-US sizing, use the item description field to explain sizing in detail.

If your listing represents multiple items available for sale, we recommend creating one listing per size available. Note that many shoppers take advantage of the My Size filter, which is only compatible with the standard, non-custom sizes.

Brand

Include the item’s brand here. If it’s a major brand, select it from the list for best results. Otherwise, you can also fill in a custom brand. Keep in mind that you can only change a brand up to three times on a single listing. If your item is unbranded, leave this blank

Please note that using this field in a manner that uses another brand to advertise your listing or to imply that your item is inspired by a brand is prohibited on our platform. For more on this, see our FAQs.

Color

You can select up to four colors in your listing. If you want to elaborate on the color of your item, be sure to include this in the “Describe It!” section.

New With Tags

Select “Yes” if your item is new, unused and has original tags attached. If you’ve selected yes, you’ll also see “New With Tags Retail.” Choose this option if your item was purchased directly from a brand or distributor, and is now being sold for the first time.

If your item is used or no longer has the original tags attached, select “No.”

Original Price

Including the original retail price helps shoppers know how much they are saving. Not sure? It’s best to set this at $0.

Listing Price

This is the desired sale price, before Poshmark’s fee. Note that you can adjust the price of your unsold item at any time. For more help, see some pricing tips and learn about Price Drop Notifications.

Are you creating an informational listing that doesn’t represent an item for sale? Set the price to $0 to mark it as Not For Sale so someone doesn’t accidentally purchase it.

Your Earnings (When Sold)

If it sells for the above listing price, this is how much you would earn after Poshmark’s fee. This is for your eyes only and will not appear in the listing.

  1. Excellent information, thank you! Is it possible to add a category for Suits? Also, is it possible to add the detailed list of unauthorized items to the app? The current information is pretty vague, and quite a few Poshers use only their smartphones instead of computers. Right now, the detailed list of unauthorized items is only on the website.
    One last request: Can we get a filter for the Feed? It would be great to be able to filter for size, price, etc.
    I think the app is fantastic, but these changes would be very appreciated!
    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. I saw the other comment, but the update isn’t available on the Google play store yet? The most recent update was August 15…

  3. My app is telling me it is the current version (android here) but it is not giving me the option to list under the new categories…what is going on? Thanks.

  4. Hi I wish there was a easier way to share listings such as selecting all the ones you want to share at once. Also I wish there was a choice of condition when creating a new listing for a item for example: NWT,New without tags, Great, and ok. That would help users out a lot when searching for items so I can evaluate what is what.
