Retail on Poshmark: FAQs

The most frequently asked questions about Boutiques and the Wholesale Marketplace.

Q: What does Boutique mean?
A: An item is Boutique if it was purchased wholesale, directly from a distributor, and is being sold to the public for the first time. Items purchased from a store for the purpose of reselling are not considered Boutique.

Q: What is Boutique Certification?
A: Boutique Certification is a quick and easy in-app certification, required for all sellers that want to tag a listing as Boutique.

Q: What requirements do I have to follow once I’m boutique certified?
A: We ask our sellers to follow a few simple requirements once they’re Boutique Certified:

  1. Listings must follow our definition of Boutique: purchased wholesale from a distributor, and sold for the first time.
  2. Boutique listings should only include original photography.
  3. Boutique sellers should provide exceptional customer service and should comply with Poshmark’s policies.

Q: How do I get access to Boutique Certification?
A:. You can access the Boutique Certification from your Account Tab > My Seller Tools > Boutique Certification.

Q: What is the Wholesale Marketplace?
A: It’s a place (in the app!) where certified Poshmark sellers will be able to purchase wholesale inventory, in bulk, from brands they know and love, at competitive prices.

Q: Who gets access to the Wholesale Marketplace?
A: To be eligible, you must have 10+ sales on Poshmark, have an average rating of 4.5+, and have completed our boutique certification.

Q: What is a Boutique?
A: A Boutique is a Poshmark seller carrying Boutique inventory (as described above). They are focused on stocking beautiful inventory and creating a stylized, elevated shopping experience, just like you’d find in a brick and mortar boutique.

Q: How can I become a Boutique?
A: The easiest way to turn your closet into a Boutique is to purchase your first batch of wholesale inventory directly from our Wholesale Marketplace, right within the Poshmark app. All sellers that have completed 10 or more sales are eligible to purchase from this portal. You can access the portal from the Account Tab → My Seller Tools.

One thought on “Retail on Poshmark: FAQs

  1. If I have a company that is willing to let me purchase wholesale from them so I can sell “New Retail” in my Posh-Closet, can I still become a “Boutique”? And can I apply for the Fashion Entrepreneur Fund contest?
