Poshmark is Heading to Chicago!

That’s right! We’re heading to the windy city for the first time and what better way to bring on the summer time than by throwing a LIVE Summer Staples Posh Party! We’re teaming up with four amazing Chicago-based style bloggers and all-around cool gals, who will be opening up their closets on Poshmark for you to shop!

If you’re local, we’d love to have you join us! Come mingle, meet, shop and have a cocktail with the Poshmark team and our co-hosts! Simply shoot us a note to rsvp@poshmark.com by June 26th to get on the guest list (space is limited).

If you’re not in Chicago, don’t you worry! Join us virtually through the Poshmark app for plenty of Poshmark fun from wherever you may be. Be ready to shop or list summer staples (or both!), including dresses, skirts, sun hats, and more!

Hope to see you there!

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!

Friday Five: Things That Make Us Happy

Happy Friday, friends!  We want to introduce our new weekly feature where we will round up five things from the past week that we are loving, whether it be trends, listings, or something that just made us smile.

1. The thought of going to Southern California next week for two live listing parties! We are so excited to get to see some old friends and meeting new ones in Los Angeles and Orange County. If you are in the area, we would love to see you and help you create listings! See all the deets here.

2. We love a good viral video, especially when it involves amazing women like Rebecca Minkoff, Man Repeller, and Hilary Rhoda dancing and lip syncing. We haven’t been able to stop watching it and singing along all week!

3. PMHQ is an office full of  animal lovers and this Live Puppy Cam Stream had us quite distracted from our work.  Can we say ca-uuuute?! Watch at your own risk…it will keep you captivated (err, it will distract you for much longer than you’d think!).

4. We don’t like to toot our own horn (okay we lied, we totally do), but when Poshmark or someone that works at Poshmark gets recognized, we have to give them a big round of applause! Check out our amazing co-founder and VP of Marketing Tracy Sun mentioned in USA Today on the list of female founders under 35! Work it, Tracy! 

5. Last but certainly not least: Posh Parties, DUH! We have some amazing in-app shopping parties going on this weekend that are making us and our wallets seriously excited. Kicking it off tonight is our “Designer Accessories” party. There are a few of us at PMHQ who are on the hunt for some new sunglasses, so show us what you got!
