Frequently Asked Questions

How are Poshers recommended?
Suggestions are made based on the listings in a Posher’s closet, and by the city in their profile.

How do you know my location?
We’ve estimated your location based on the zip code in your address. If you don’t want to be featured in your city, that’s okay! Just go to your profile and clear the My Location field.

What if I can’t find my city?
Choose the closest city next to you.

When I sort by “Trending,” what does that mean?
“Trending” is a sort order we developed to expose a wide variety of active closets. It’s what we like to call our “secret sauce”.

Posh Tip: Seasonal Selling

Bohemian Bib Necklace $65 (Retail $90)

Have you ever wondered why some listings sell like a hotcakes and others sit in your closet longer? Today’s Posh Tip explores marketing your closet for the right time of year.

We think it’s valuable to keep in mind the current season, the upcoming season and the overall seasonality of your garments. When listing items in your closet, take into account what the Community may be shopping for in the coming weeks.

Special Edition Ray-Bans $72 (Retail $150)

A helpful hint: ask yourself what you’ve been shopping for lately. Your thin, lightweight tops, silky shorts and strappy sandals will likely get more interest during the warmer months. When you consider that people are looking to buy in advance of the upcoming season (about six to eight weeks), in- and pre-season items can call for a higher price as they’re more in demand.

At the same time, if you’d really like to move your inventory of thick, chunky sweaters and knee-high leather boots in those same warmer months, consider lowering your price to attract buyers. Nothing is more drool-worthy than a gorgeous, warm coat or jacket with an equally enticing price tag.

Lovers + Friends dress $65 (Retail $154)

In the end, an AH-MAZING deal is an amazing deal regardless of season, but after surveying the PMHQ team, we find our listings get swooped up quicker when we’re catering to the season.

Happy Poshing!

Wish List Wednesday: Mirror Print

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what is our favorite trend of all? The favorite trend of right now, at least, is mirror print. There’s something fun yet sophisticated about the colorful kaleidoscope pattern when combined with a sleek silhouette. It’s easy to get the look when you shop these closets and more on Poshmark!

Blue Mirror Print Cut-Out Dress $10 (Retail $40)

NWT Prabal Gurung for Target Top $25

NWT Clover Canyon Fluorescent Lights Dress $175 (Retail $268)

Watercolor Mirror Print Peplum Top $25 (Retail $45)

Abstract Mirror Print Top $30 (Retail $65)

Covershots That Shine

@riavianna / @elissaemoto

By now, we all know the importance of an A+ covershot. It’s your first, and sometimes only, chance to get someone to notice the item you’re selling–so you’d better make it count! A well-styled snapshot just may be your ticket to your next Poshmark sale. Looking for a bit of inspiration? Peep these pretty photos that caught our eye lately and be sure to follow our Covershot inspiration board on Pinterest!

Posh Tip: How to Describe the Condition of Your Item

It should be no surprise that we here at PMHQ are seriously into shopping. One upside to this—besides a cute pair of shoes, of course—is that inevitably an item or two (or three!) will make its way to our own Poshmark closets once our actual closets start to overflow.

Other than creating an awesome Covershot, one important thing to keep in mind is how to appropriately describe the condition of an item. Whether it’s that purse you just had to have one minute but ended up sitting in your closet the next or a summer dress that you’re ready to say goodbye to, we’ve got some tips on how to best describe your item’s condition.

New With Tags (NWT)

Have an impulse purchase you never got around to wearing? If it’s still got tags attached, it’s NWT. New With Tags items are brand new, never worn, with the tags still attached. Is your item is brand new but has no tags? Easy—that’s NWOT (New Without Tags).

(Also, if some of these acronyms have you scratching your head, find a helpful list of oft-used abbreviations in our Poshmark glossary.)

Excellent Used Condition (EUC)

We’ve all been there—sometimes you wear an item, only to find it just doesn’t work for you. If something has been worn once or twice but has little to no signs of wear, it’s Like New. Even if you’ve worn an item just once, it’s always a good idea to give it a thorough inspection, just in case.

Good Used Condition

Have a top or pair of shoes that no longer makes it into your #ootd rotation? Your preloved item could be another Posher’s new favorite. Items in excellent condition are gently used, with little signs of wear. Just be sure to include any details that your buyer should take note of before she hits that “Buy” button—examples include any pilling, pulls, or loose stitches.

Very Used Condition

Time to let go of an old favorite? Be sure to give it a thorough inspection and let your buyer know of any signs of wear, fading or discoloration, and additional details that should be noted. Be sure to double and triple check the item—sometimes it’s easy to look over little details like seams, straps, and zippers. If you need to show a lot of detail, create a second listing for your item.
