Poshmark Welcomes the Totspot Community to the App

m_57910ae23c6f9f3260007540

In July of 2016 we expanded to include men’s and kid’s merchandise, knowing that the Poshmark community wants to buy and sell for their whole family. Each month since launch, we have been growing steadily in each category, with 60% month over month growth in the kid’s category alone.

To help meet the growing demand for kid’s and men’s inventory on Poshmark, today we are announcing the acquisition of the Totspot community. Totspot has spent the last three years nurturing a passionate community of moms who use the platform to buy and sell for their entire family.

“We’re excited to welcome Totspot members to Poshmark. We’ve experienced solid growth in the buying and selling of family items since our kid’s expansion a few months back and the inclusion of Totspot’s community to Poshmark will further deepen our focus on this segment.” – Manish Chandra, founder and CEO of Poshmark

“While we are proud of our growing community, we have been continually inspired by the large community of women and moms on Poshmark. We believe that together, we can be a much bigger community and marketplace.” – Vijay Ramani, CEO of Totspot

We can’t wait to meet all the new community members and know that Poshers will welcome them with loving arms.

Now, let’s show the Totspot community some of that good ol’ Posh Love!

Poshmark Visits Spain!

Poshmark’s Founder and CEO, Manish Chandra, was invited to be a keynote speaker at the European Ecommerce Conference in Madrid, Spain this week, along with companies such as YouTube, Badgeville, Hotel Tonight, Etsy, and more. This amazing opportunity marked a first for Poshmark: first time speaking about the company and our industry outside of the U.S.!

Manish talked about building a successful community, gave advice on innovating around the mobile platform, and shared some of his personal challenges when launching Poshmark. Some of our favorite takeaways from Manish’s presentation:

  • “Three key words: Simple. Mobile. Social.”
  • “True social commerce: Investing time in building a community will drive commerce.”
  • “Poshmark has built a truly-engaged mobile community through social merchandising with our Posh Party platform.”
  • “Mobile gives you the ability to create a platform that’s with the user everywhere, at all times. Innovate around that.”

Thank you to adigital (Asociación Española de la Economía Digital) for inviting Manish to speak and another HUGE thank you to those who attended his keynote presentation (in person or through the live stream). We loved Tweeting with you and listening to your great questions!

Hasta la próxima vez, España! 🙂
