Let’s not deny it: we’re suckers for cute packaging! That’s why we’re sharing this Posh Tip on how to personalize your Poshmark sale before it goes out the door! 

Think about it—how many times are you impressed with how your new purchase is delivered as you are with the actual item inside the box? With just a few extra touches, you’ll guarantee a smile on your buyer’s face (and possibly a repeat customer)!

What you’ll need: Tissue paper, ribbon, thank you cards, and anything else you’d like to help spice up the package, such as stickers, stamps, business cards, etc.

Package your items:

  • Neatly fold and wrap the item up in tissue paper to ensure the item stays put during transit. 
  • Double-check to make sure you’re sending your item to the correct person if you’re shipping out multiple packages!
  • Include a hand-written thank you note! We suggest choosing stationery (or creating your own) that reflects your personality. Classic, fashion-forward, loud—the options are endless, but the results are always the same: a very happy buyer!

Voila! You’re sure to make someone’s day with your cute Poshmark package!

Happy Poshing!

Posh Tip: Say Cheeeeese!

Creating an awesome Covershot is always helpful to get your item sold. Here are three different types of Covershots we’ve seen work well within the community!

1) The “I’m so lucky to have a photog help me” Covershot. If you’re fortunate enough to be this person, here’s our Posh Tip: Go outdoors! Lighting is so crucial to getting a good photo. Best time to take a picture? Golden hour, just when the sun is just about to set. Here are some great examples of some Seller Stylistswho’ve taken their Covershots outdoors:

2) Next, we have the “Modeled Covershot.” This is when you don’t have a photog handy, but still want to have an eye-catching listing.

Posh Tip: Make sure you have decent lighting and be sure to angle your camera just enough so that you can get a good shot of what you’re trying to sell. Here are some great examples of a few mirror selfie gems:

3) Lastly, the flat lay. This is when you want to do a listing, but don’t have the energy to put the item on. (C’mon, we’ve all been there!) We’ve seen some really awesome items styled together, and guess what? They sell! We’re finding that giving some style inspiration to the Covershot is super helpful.

Posh Tip: Keep it simple. We find that when there are too many pieces, it can be distracting and actually take away from what you’re trying to highlight. Here are some great examples of some styled Covershots:

Happy Poshing!
