Posh Tip: How To Make Your First Sale

So you downloaded Poshmark, now what? Here are some easy ways to get your new listings marked with a SOLD banner and fast!

1. Style Your Covershot

Your Covershot is the very first photo of your listing and remember, first impressions count! Make sure your Covershot is well-lit and clear. Experiment between flatlays and modeled photos to give your potential buyers a clear idea of what they’re buying.

2. Describe Your Items Accurately

Take time to accurately describe the item you are listing. Include info such as the condition the item is in, if it runs true to size, and tips on what to pair it with. Answering your potential buyers’ questions up front will help them decide to hit that “Buy” button quicker.

3. Attend Posh Parties

Posh Parties are real-time virtual shopping events where fashion lovers (like you!) meet up in the Poshmark app to shop, share, and sell clothing and accessories.  Posh Parties

4. Be Responsive & Engage with Others

When someone posts a question about your listing, respond promptly. If you wait too long,  your potential buyer could lose interest. Remember, your Newsfeed is your friend!

Also, Poshmark is very much a social marketplace. Find others with the same shoe size and follow them. Share others’ listings that you think are fantastic. Trust us when we say that the love you help spread will get returned…and could result in a sale!

Posh Tip: Get Started on Poshmark

New to Poshmark?  No problem!  We think you’ll find selling on Poshmark so easy that you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it before.

Here’s how it works: List. Ship. Earn. It’s really as simple as 1-2-3.

image

Step 1:  List Your Item.

Start by finding an item in your closet that you love but just don’t wear anymore. For example, do you have….

  • A dress you wore to a wedding once?
  • A skirt that still has tags on it?
  • Jewelry from an ex that just needs to go?
  • Throw pillow that just didn’t work out?

Then, list them for sale on Poshmark! It’s easy and free.

Step 2: Ship Your Item.

Once your item sells, let PoshPost do the hard work. We send you a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label. All you have to do is print it out, package up the item, and drop it off at the corner mailbox (if it fits) or at the nearest USPS Post Office. No stamps, no hassle!

image

Step 3: Earn Cash.

You can withdraw your earnings from Poshmark anytime…for free! Deposit your money directly into your checking account, request a check, or use the cash to purchase directly on Poshmark. You choose.

Here’s how our fees work: When you make a sale, we will deduct a 20% commission fee from your earnings. This means that you keep 80% of the sale price as your earnings.

Here’s what you get in return: We handle the financial transaction for you (including paying all those pesky credit card fees), provide you with a pre-paid pre-addressed shipping label, and will serve as your customer support team for your sale.

Once you see how simple and easy selling is on Poshmark, you will fall in love with your closet…again. Sell what you have in your closet so you can shop for what you REALLY love today.

Happy Poshing!

Posh Tip: Shipping Your Poshmark Sales!

Yay you made a sale on Poshmark! Now what? Without further adieu, here’s a post with some helpful tips on packaging, shipping boxes, and how to prep your shipment before it goes out to the excited recipient!

Posh Tip #1: Make sure you’re using the correct box!

Boxes labeled “Priority” at the post office are free (woop woop!) and a great option if you don’t have packaging materials at home. They come in a variety of sizes, so it’s easy to find the one that fits your recently-sold Rebecca Minkoff bag or lace cocktail dress. Don’t have time to drop by the post office to pick them up? Don’t fret! You can request for them online and have them dropped off at home!

Also, a standard brown box (like the one pictured below) that you have lying around your house could work too. Just make sure that it’s the appropriate size for what you’re shipping out and ensure the label is clearly affixed to the box.

Boxes that cannot be used are labeled “Priority Flat Rate,” “Regional Rate,” and “Express Mail.”  Be careful when you’re picking these boxes up at USPS or ordering them online because they look very similar to the “Priority Mail” boxes that you can use. An example of a “Priority Flat Rate” box (that can’t be used!) is below.

Posh Tip #2: It’s all in the details!

We all love getting pretty little things sent to us in the mail, so why not add a special touch to your sale to make your buyer just that much happier with their purchase from you. Wrap your item in cute tissue paper and include a note to thank your buyer. Check out our blog post for tips on packaging.

Posh Tip #3: Placing your item in the mail

Your package is neatly put together and ready for delivery…now what?! If your parcel is small enough, you may slip it in the nearest blue USPS mail box. For packages that are too large to fit, you can either drop it off at the post office or schedule for a pick up via USPS’ site. Easy breezy.

Lastly, if you want to track your item to see where it is on it’s journey after you’ve shipped it out, make note of the USPS tracking number on the label that was originally emailed to you by Poshmark and plug it in here.

We hope that all these tips have helped you along in getting your Poshmark sales packaged and out the door. Cheers to many sales ahead and, as always, Happy Poshmarking!

Posh Tip: Make the Most of a Posh Party

If you’ve ever attended a Posh Party in the app you know how fun they can be! Not only do you get to shop for and sell clothing and accessories under different themes every night of the week, but they’re also a great way to interact with the Poshmark community and discover new products and sellers across the country. With all that fun comes a few tips and tricks (as well as proper Party etiquette) that we want to share with you to give you and the rest of the Posh Party goers the best possible experience.

1. Plan out what you want to list! Make sure you visit our blog every Monday to see what parties we have in store for you for the week and check the “Parties” tab in the app. That way you can get your listings ready ahead of time. Refer to this post to get our tips on how to take great photos!

2. Share your themed listings to the party. We suggest doing this gradually throughout the party so that your listings get seen and appreciated. But please remember to share only those listings that fall within the theme of the party!

3. Interact with the Poshmark community! There are so many amazing women on Poshmark, so feel free to show them some love and “like” their listings or leave comments. Go ahead and spread the love!

4. Keep promotional messages and “Tweegrams” to a minimum. Although we love the interactions and fun sales you have, the Posh Party is a tool to promote your themed items, so please don’t clog the feed with promotional messages.

5. Last but definitely not least, have fun! Get your girlfriends together, grab a few snacks (and cocktails!), and shop away! Or if you prefer, join the party from the comfort of your couch. 🙂

Posh Tip: How to make your first Poshmark sale!

You’ve taken the time to create your listings, now you’re wondering, “how am I going to get my items sold?” Not to worry ladies! Here are just a few Posh Tips on how we can move your inventory and get you one step closer to getting that Rebecca Minkoff bag you’ve been eyeing! 

Posh Tip #1: Take some time to create a beautiful listing. Let’s face it ladies, no one really wants to see a dark photo of a wrinkled skirt on a messy bed. Take the time to iron your item if it’s wrinkled, clear out the space where you’re photographing, and preferably, put the item on if you can. People generally want to see what the item looks like on to see the fit, cut, etc, so that always helps! 

Posh Tip #2: Attend Posh Parties! This is a great way of promoting your listings to a wider audience. Want to sell that polka dot dress? Attend the “Prints & Patterns” posh party and share your listing then. Just make sure you stick to theme! 

Posh Tip #3: Be Responsive! Someone is ready to buy your Steve Madden Booties. But as a last step before making the purchase, the user asks you to take a pic of the bottom of the shoes to see the wear. Try to be as responsive as possible. Can’t take the photo until tonight when you’re off from work? Let them know! This will not only potentially create a sale for you, but you’ll also get a happy user who will be appreciative of your responsiveness and possibly be a repeat customer! 

Happy Poshmarking! And here’s to getting your listing(s) with a red SOLD banner on it! 😉
