Posh Tip: How To Get a Host Pick


We often hear Poshers wondering how their listings can be chosen as a coveted Host Pick. Because Posh Parties are hosted by different users every day, it’s hard to say there is an exact formula that will guarantee your item will be shared by a party co-host. However, we do know there are a few things that come in to play.

Read on to see four ways to better your chances of getting that Host Pick email notification:

Know Poshmark’s Policies

Party hosts are asked to only share items that meet Poshmark’s selling guidelines and from closets who follow Poshmark’s policies. To nab a spot in the Host Pick showroom, read up on the rules by checking out the Posh Guide and committing the Community Guidelines to memory.


Perfect Your Covershot Style

Nothing catches the eye of a Posh Party host like a clear and stylized covershot. Check out our tips on how to create a great listing!


Be Active

Being an active and social member of the Poshmark community is a great way to get on the radar of a party host. Share, comment and like other Poshers’ listings to grow your personal network as well as your chance to have your listing appear in that showroom!


Get Your Party On

Make sure to attend every evening party and share only listings that are most relevant to the theme. Some hosts may simply choose to scroll through items that are being shared to the party. The more on-theme items you share, the greater your chances are.


With these things in mind, your chances to have a Posh Party co-host notice your listings are sure to soar. We can’t wait to see your fantastic listings in a Host Pick showroom soon!

Happy Poshing!

Community Q&A with @cvz15

Community darling Carol of @cvz15 talks with us about how Poshmark helped redefine her style during a special birthday, her Posh BFFs, and how she involves the entire family in the Posh process!

Poshmark started out of curiosity because I wanted to redefine my wardrobe due to a milestone birthday. Now I spend about 10-12 hours a day in the app, sharing other people’s listings and working on my own closet. The social networking aspect, getting to develop relationships and making connections with the outside world, is great. My Poshmark BFFs are @wenrella and @gordomom.


@gordomom helped make me addicted to Poshmark; I think she has great cover shots. @styleluxe4less is very welcoming and informative when it comes to new users. @manymurrays is great at sharing listings a lot.
love color, peacock and classic style and Kate SpadeI am a former fashion flop turned suburbanite fashionista with a hint of glitz and glamour.
My family has been a huge help. My husband bought me a portable photo booth to snap photos of my jewelry. My daughter will model necklaces and earrings for me. I don’t like to take the same types of shots because it can get redundant.

Posh Stories: Fran

We know how much our Community members mean to us but it’s always fun to learn more about our users and what Poshmark means to them! This week we reached out to Fran to find out when her Poshmark obsession began and meet her cute little listing helper, Finch.

How did you find Poshmark?

My amazing and tech-savvy sister-in-law told me about it. I signed up and was hooked.  Initially, I just needed to give my closet a good cleaning, but since then it has just evolved into another excuse to continue shopping excessively.

What’s your Poshmark routine?

Hmm, does obsession qualify as a routine?  Poshmark has become my relaxation, in between work and school. I love just browsing and sharing listings.  In the morning I start my day of with reading the news, coffee, and Poshmark, and then throughout the day Poshmark essentially fills the gaps.

Where do you like to shop, besides Poshmark? 

Zara is probably my fave right now, but I also love a good sale just about anywhere.  I am an equal opportunity shopper. I love shopping in any form — from clothes and shoes to grocery shopping!

Define your closet personal style. 

I think that my style is pretty casual, I love neutrals, skinny jeans, jackets, and I LOVE great accessories.  I am always on the hunt for my next great watch or pair of boots and truly believe that a girl can never have too many pairs of jeans or too many pairs of shoes.  I can be really picky so sometimes it takes me months and lots of shopping around to find just what I’m looking for. Right now it’s the perfect leather jacket.  Still hunting…

Where did you get your username? 

Highly uncreative, just my name, and I live in Portland, OR (PDX airport).  I tried to think of something that I wouldn’t be tired of in six months.

What was your best purchase on Poshmark? 

A pair of tall black leather Juicy Couture boots that I got for about 60% below retail! They are gorg and were brand new!

What makes a good buyer?

I appreciate promptness and follow through.  If you ask for a reserve, you actually buy.

Where do you take your cover shots? Does someone help you?

Usually at home in my closet and you’ll often catch a portion of one of my pugs in the photos also. I am in awe of the amazing cover photos that I see all over Poshmark; this is another of my Summer goals: up my cover shot photo taking game!

Thanks for taking the time to speak with us, Fran! Happy Poshmarking!
