Posh Tip: Get Started on Poshmark

New to Poshmark?  No problem!  We think you’ll find selling on Poshmark so easy that you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it before.

Here’s how it works: List. Ship. Earn. It’s really as simple as 1-2-3.

Step 1:  List Your Item.

Start by finding an item in your closet that you love but just don’t wear anymore. For example, do you have….

  • A dress you wore to a wedding once?
  • A skirt that still has tags on it?
  • Jewelry from an ex that just needs to go?
  • Killer heels that were always a tad too small?

Then, list them for sale on Poshmark! It’s easy and free.

Step 2: Ship Your Item.

Once your item sells, let PoshPost do the hard work. We send you a pre-paid pre-addressed shipping label. All you have to do is print it out, package up the item, and drop it off at the corner mailbox (if it fits) or at the nearest US Post Office. No stamps, no hassle!

Step 3: Earn Cash.

You can withdraw your earnings from Poshmark anytime…for free! Deposit your money directly into your checking account, request a check, or use the cash to purchase directly on Poshmark. You choose.

So here’s how our fees work: When you make a sale, we will deduct a 20% commission fee from your earnings. This means that you keep 80% of the sale price as your earnings.

Here’s what you get in return: We handle the financial transaction for you (including paying all those pesky credit card fees), provide you with a pre-paid pre-addressed shipping label, and will serve as your customer support team for your sale.

Once you see how simple and easy selling is on Poshmark, you will fall in love with your closet…again. Sell what you have in your closet so you can shop for what you REALLY love today.

Happy Poshing!

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!

Posh Tip: Packaging Up Your Poshmark Sale!

Let’s not deny it ladies: we’re suckers for cute packaging! That’s why this week’s Posh Tip is: Personalize your Poshmark sale before it goes out the door! Think about it—how many times are you almost as 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 Poshmark buyer’s face (and possibly a repeat customer!). What you need: Tissue, ribbon, thank you card, and anything else you’d like to help spice up the package, such as stickers, stamps, business cards, etc.

Neatly fold and wrap the item up in tissue paper to ensure the item stays put during transit. Nothing is worse than receiving a wrinkled top or a tangled-up necklace!

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!

Top off the package with cute ribbon! It’s the perfect finishing touch and makes for a gorgeous presentation.

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