The Details on Retail: What to Think About When Pricing Your Merch

blogrecap_pricemerch

This week’s The Details on Retail was all about how to price your merchandise while keeping in mind of what you should pay yourself back for.

Wholesale Portal brands offer a MSRP, look out for it in the description field under a wholesale pack listing. OR you can use the retail rule of thumb: a markup of 2.5-3x the wholesale price.

Some other key things to think about:
1. The 20% Poshmark commission
2. Factor in the $5.95 shipping cost
3. Price drops – determine the lowest price you’ll go before pricing an item

*Pro tip: If a Wholesale Portal brand is offering a pack of say, the same t-shirt in the same color, and you think you can sell that same t-shirt in different colors – you can ask that brand to do a custom bundle for you! #loveit

Things you may not necessarily think about when pricing are the things you should pay yourself back for. Consider:
1. Your time (think about how much you want to be paid on the hour to list, share, pack & ship – calculate that in)
2. Materials (like tape, thank you cards, tissue paper, etc.)

Putting your boutique on par with the traditional brick and mortar shop:
1. Don’t put your inventory on sale immediately (allow for 30-60 days to sell an item then think about putting it on sale)
2. Know your boutique has value & that there are more retail buyers coming to Poshmark

You can watch the full video(s) (amongst some small technical difficulties!) Happy Poshing!

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?
