App Update: Introducing The Bundle Feature

Bundle_blog_intro (1)

Buyers and sellers, rejoice! While bundles have been a part of the Poshmark experience for some time, the process is now streamlined and easier than ever, thanks to the new Bundle feature.

Buyers can now quickly and easily arrange the purchase of multiple items from a favorite closet. Stocking up on great finds is also a great way to save, since multiple items ship with one low price. Plus, sellers who want to sweeten the deal for buyers and move more items can also offer customized bundle discounts.

Ready to get started? Just open the app or visit poshmark.com and you’re ready to go.

When a purchase is completed, sellers will receive a confirmation email that includes the single shipping label and a list of which items from their closet have sold in the bundle.

In a browsing mood? Not to worry. Your bundles are saved even if you haven’t completed a purchase. To access them, go your Account, click “My Likes” and then select the “My Bundles” tab.

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.

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.

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.

New Seller Tools: “My Closet Stats” & “Not for Sale”

With our latest release of the app, we introduced two new tools to empower sellers on Poshmark take even more control of their closets, merchandise, and interactions with potential buyers: “My Closet Stats” and “Not for Sale” listing status.

1. “My Closet Stats”: My Closet stats gives you important information about your closet, your sales history, and the experience you are delivering to your buyers. This page and the information included on it is private (for your eyes only!) and meant to help you continue to succeed. To get to your closet stats, click on your profile tab at the bottom right of the app > click on “My Closet Stats.”

We’d love to hear your feedback on this tool, Posh sellers! Please click through to this PM Editor listing and let us know what other information about your closet you’d find helpful for selling more on Poshmark.

Examples of the type of information you’ll find in “My Closet Stats”:

  • Available listings: The total number of unsold listings available for sale in your closet. Closets with a great number of “Available Listings” are more likely to sell an item to a buyer (we recommend having at least 10 available listings in your closet).
  • Self-Shares: The total number of times you have shared a listing from your closet in the last 30 days. Sharing your listings to your followers and to parties will increase the number of potential buyers viewing the listing and your closet.
  • Listings Sold: The total number of listings you have sold in your closet. (Special kudos if you’re one of the top 10% sellers on Poshmark – keep it up!).
  • Total Earned: The total amount of money you have made through your sold listings on Poshmark, less Poshmark fees.
  • Days to Ship: The average time you have thus far taken to ship your orders to buyers. We calculate the time between when the order was placed and when your package was accepted by the US Postal Service. The faster you ship an order to a buyer, the faster she can start enjoying her purchase! If you delay shipping an order to a buyer, you may harm her purchase experience and reduce the chance she shops your closet again.

2. “Not for Sale” Listings: You now have a clear way to tell buyers which listings are no longer available in your closet. This includes items sold in bundles, reserved listings, notes, or purchases that you just want to share with other Poshers (#PoshFinds!). Listings that are marked “Not for Sale” don’t have a blue “Buy Now” button, but others will still be able to see, like, share, and comment on them.

To mark a listing as “Not for Sale”: click the “Edit” icon on the listing details page > select “Mark as Not for Sale.”

To make one of these listings available for purchase: click the “Edit” icon on the listing details page > select “Mark as Available.”

Note: Poshmark’s minimum listing price is $3. Listings with a $0, $1, or $2 listing price are automatically set to “Not for Sale” listing status and won’t have a “Buy Now” button. For more info, please check out our FAQs here.
