Posh Tip: Get Bundle Savvy

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 10.42.31 AM

We all know that bundle sales mean good things for both buyers and sales alike. The new Bundle feature is a great way to capitalize on these benefits: extra savings for buyers and more money for sellers! Read on for tips on how to get the most out of this feature whether you’re trying to move your closet’s inventory or pad your wardrobe for the coming season.

For Sellers…

Set your bundle discount. First consider how much wiggle room you have in your pricing and the number of items available for sale in your closet. This can help you choose the most effective strategy for your discount settings. Your can adjust your bundle discount at any time by going to the app and from your account tab go to “My Selling Tools” and select “My Bundle Discount.”

Advertise your bundle discount. Did you know that if you have a bundle discount set, it’ll be displayed at the bottom of each listing? But if you want to build more hype around the deals you’re offering, try creating a new listing that specifically promotes your discount.

Make bundle suggestions. If something else in your closet would go perfectly with another item you’ve listed, consider making a styling suggestion in your listing photos or description. You never know, some savvy shopper may take you up on your tip and swoop both of them up!

For Buyers…

Save on shipping. Peruse your stylemate’s closet for multiple #PoshFinds by using the “My Size” filter. When you bundle multiple items from one closet, you’ll only pay for shipping once, so add to that bundle to your heart’s content and don’t fret the shipping.

Look for that discount. When shopping, look below the listing description for the seller’s bundle discount. Don’t see one? Leave a comment and ask the seller if they offer discounts for bundles.

Bundle FAQs: Make the Most of Poshmark’s Newest Feature

Now that you know about our new Bundle feature, it’s time to make the most of it. Sellers, consider setting up a bundle discount for your closet, which is displayed on your About page. While not required, it can be a helpful selling point for buyers and you can adjust your settings at any time.

How To Set Up A Bundle Discount:

  1. From the app, go to your account tab, then “My Seller Discount”.
  2. Enable a bundle discount.
  3. Select the discount percentage you would like to offer and the minimum number of items in a bundle needed for the discount to be applied.

Note that all “for sale” listings in your closet will be eligible for a bundle discount. Your earnings on a bundle order will be calculated based on the total of the items less your bundle discount.

Now that you’re all set to utilize the new Bundles feature, we’ve collected some frequently asked questions by buyer and seller to help you better understand how it works.


070215_bundles_seller faq

How will I know when a bundle has sold? Just like any other sale on Poshmark, you will receive an email notification with an attached mailing label.

Can sellers create bundles for a buyer using this feature? No.

What if a bundle weighs more than 5 pounds? The $5.95 shipping fee only covers up to 5 pounds. If it’s heavier than 5 pounds, you can upgrade your shipping label from the My Sales page within the app. Note that any extra overweight label costs will be deducted from your earnings.

Should I still respond to buyers who request bundles in comments? You can still make bundles manually, but you can always request via comment that buyers use the new feature to make a bundle purchase.

How does Posh Concierge work with bundles? A bundle will go through Posh Concierge if at least one of the items in the bundle is eligible (costs $500 or more). If the bundle subtotal is $500 or more, but every item is under $500, the bundle will not go through Posh Concierge.

Are bundle discounts automatically applied? Can I change my bundle discount settings? Bundle discounts are automatically applied when a buyer makes a bundle purchase. You can adjust your bundle discount settings at any time. Simply go to Account > My Seller Discount.

Can I edit an individual listing’s price in a bundle before it’s sold? Yes. You may edit an unsold listing at any time.

070215_bundles_buyer faq

How do I add an item to a bundle? To start a bundle, click on the action icon in the top right of the listing page. Click on “Add to Bundle” and the listing will appear in your new bundle. Repeat with other items from the same seller’s closet.

Can I combine items from different closets into the same bundle? No, bundles can only be created with items from a single seller.

How long does Poshmark save my bundles? Where can I find them? Bundles are saved indefinitely, even if you don’t go through with the purchase. Find them under My Likes and then My Bundles. Note that adding an item to a bundle does not reserve it and its availability cannot be guaranteed. If an item in your bundle is no longer available, it will be shown as such during checkout.

How many bundles can I create?  As many bundles as you would like!  However, you can only make one bundle from a specific seller at a time.

Can I make an offer on a bundle? Currently, buyers can only use the Make An Offer feature on a single listing, not on a bundle.

What happens if an item sells before a bundle order is placed? Adding an item to a bundle does not reserve the item. If an item saved in a bundle sells out, it is no longer available.

Will a seller know if I’ve added items to a bundle before going through with the purchase? Yes, sellers are notified when buyers add items to a bundle.

Will placing an item in a bundle mark the item as reserved? No. Listings will remain available for anyone to purchase until you are ready to check out. When you click “Buy Bundle,” all items in the bundle go into a brief reserved state to give you the chance to complete your purchase.

Do price drop promotions apply to items in a bundle? No. If an item eligible for a price drop promotion is added to a bundle, the bundle purchase will not be eligible for the individual item’s shipping discount.

How can I know a seller’s bundle discount before creating a bundle? If a seller has chosen to offer a bundle discount, it will be featured in her closet’s About page.

Love Notes FAQs

How do I add Love Notes to my closet? Love Notes are automatically added to a closet’s About page when that user receives or gives a five-star rating with a comment on a purchase.

What should I write in a Love Note? Sellers love to hear that you’ve enjoyed the service they provided. This is the time to not only thank your seller, but to also let other future buyers know that you enjoyed buying from this seller. Whether it’s the item itself that you loved, the gorgeous packaging, the quick shipping, or the overall interaction with the seller – let it be known!

Why can’t I see Love Notes on the web? Right now, Love Notes are visible on mobile only, but it’s coming to the web soon. So stay tuned!

How do I add a Love Note? Next time you receive stellar service on a Posh purchase, be sure to give the seller a five-star rating with a comment. That comment will then show up on the seller’s Love Notes section, as well as your own.

How can I remove a Love Note from my closet? Love Notes can be removed from public view but the removal is permanent and there is no way to bring it back. It is removed from both the buyer’s and seller’s About pages.  To remove a Love Note go to your Account Tab → My Purchases or My Sales → Tap on your item → Problems/Order Inquiry → Remove Love Note.
