What are the perks of shopping the Wholesale Market?
Whether you’re looking for a side hustle or a whole new career, stocking up on inventory from the  Wholesale Market is the easiest way to grow your business on Poshmark. Poshmark gives you access to merchandise from over 200 brands with tons of inventory to choose from.

What items are sold in the Wholesale Market?
We have a huge selection of categories to choose from, including Women, Men, Kids, and Plus! From jeans to jewelry, you are guaranteed to find something you love.

What is a pack?
Inventory is sold in multi-item packs with various sizes and colors. When you list the items in your boutique or closet, you set the price. For example, you could buy a pack of 5 sunglasses for $50 ($10 each), and sell each pair for $20.

How do I price my new inventory?
You set the price! Luckily, most brands provide a MSRP or Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, which is calculated to help you get the most value.

Can anyone buy from the Wholesale Market?
Yes! You must have 10 successful sales under your belt and an average 4.5+ rating. Once you meet this criteria, you’ll automatically unlock access to the Wholesale Market!

If you haven’t met the criteria yet, please email retail@poshmark.com with why you’d be a good fit.

Where is the Wholesale Market in app?
Tap the menu on the top left of the app and select Wholesale. Remember, you won’t be able to shop the Wholesale Market until you meet the criteria above.

Ok so I buy inventory from the Wholesale Market. Then what?
After you buy your inventory, the brand will ship your merchandise within 7 days (most brands ship out their orders within 3 days of purchase!). Once you get the items, photograph and style them to fit your Boutique. Next, list it in your closet by tagging it as Boutique in the listing details.

The Details on Retail: How to Think About Buying Inventory

5_25 Blog Recap

In case you missed it, or just need a refresher, our weekly live stream series, The Details on Retail covered some tips to keep in mind when buying inventory. The key? Thinking seasonally. You should prep your inventory by buying for the season ahead.

This benefits you and your boutique in many ways:
1. It gives you some organization around what to buy, and when
2. It allows you time to receive the inventory, photograph it, merchandise it, and tie the listing together with a great description

With summer just around the corner, we highly suggest building your inventory around seasonal items such as bathing suits, maxi dresses, wedges, shorts, dresses, etc.  –these are all items that customers are looking to add to their wardrobe for the upcoming season!

One of our current favorite Wholesale Portal Brands is Fashionomics. They’re listing tons of great items that are perfect to round out your summer inventory (and offer plus size options as well — score!)

Another added bonus of Poshmark’s Wholesale Portal? The quick turnaround from purchase to receival. All wholesale brands have their packs ready to go and ship out within 5 business days. Can you say amazing?
