Posh Tip: How to Get Started with Wholesale


Hey, we get it. The whole Wholesale thing can seem a little complicated! Here’s the good news: it’s really not! We put together some of the most frequently asked questions about shopping Wholesale on Poshmark.

What is Wholesale?
Wholesale is a place within Poshmark where you can buy bulk inventory direct from brands. This inventory is sold in multi-item packs at a reduced rate for you to sell at prices that you set in your Poshmark boutique. For example, you could buy a pack of 5 leggings for $50 ($10 each), and sell them each for $20 thus turning a pretty sweet profit!

Ok so I buy wholesale inventory. Then what?
After you buy your wholesale inventory, the brand will ship you your merchandise. Once you get the product, you can photograph it and style it how you see fit. Next, list it in your boutique by tagging it as “Boutique” in the listing details.

When it’s time to select quantity, be sure to hit “multiple” and then click the number of available styles you have. For example, if you bought a pack of 4 sunglasses, you would put “4” available.

What about pricing the inventory?
You set the price! Luckily, most brands provide a MSRP or Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, which is calculated so that you get the most value.

Whoa this sounds awesome! Can anyone buy from Wholesale?
Yes! All you have to do to gain access to Wholesale is to have 10 successful sales on Poshmark under your belt and have a 4.5+ rating. Once you meet these criteria, you’ll automatically gain access to Wholesale!

Where is Wholesale located in the app?
Great question! Wholesale is located on the Shop Tab. Remember, you won’t be able to see or shop Wholesale until you meet the above criteria. Once you’re eligible, Wholesale will automatically appear in your Shop Tab!

Seems awesome. What are the perks of shopping Wholesale?
So many! First and foremost, it’s fun and easy. You don’t need a retail license or to travel to a trade show— you have access to tons of brands with hand picked inventory just for you! Secondly, purchasing from Wholesale is a way to grow your business on Poshmark and make money! Whether you’re looking for a side hustle hobby or a whole new career, Wholesale on Poshmark is the easiest way to get going!
