You’ve seen it on your Shop Tab, but what is Wholesale all about? We put together some of the most frequently asked questions about shopping Wholesale on Poshmark.

What is Wholesale?
Wholesale is a place (right in the app!) where you can buy NEW inventory in bulk, directly from brands. We have over 100 emerging brands—including many brands you know and love!  

What are the perks of shopping Wholesale?
Whether you’re looking for a side hustle or a whole new career, Wholesale is the easiest way to grow your business on Poshmark. Unlike traditional wholesale, where you need a retail license to buy inventory, anyone on Poshmark can buy inventory in bulk for a discounted price. Not to mention, you have access to tons of brands with a huge selection of inventory to choose from—right at your fingertips.

What items are sold on Wholesale?
We have a huge selection of categories to choose from, including Women, Men, Kids, and Plus! From jeans to jewelry, you are guaranteed to find something you love.

What is a pack?
Wholesale inventory is sold in multi-item packs with various sizes and colors at a discounted rate. When you list the items in your boutique or closet, you set the price. For example, you could buy a pack of 5 sunglasses for $50 ($10 each), and sell each pair for $20.

How do I price my new inventory?
You set the price! Luckily, most brands provide a MSRP or Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, which is calculated to help you get the most value.

Can anyone buy from Wholesale?
Yes! To gain access to Wholesale, you must have 10 successful sales under your belt and have an average 4.5+ rating. Once you meet this criteria, you’ll automatically gain access to Wholesale!

If you haven’t met the criteria yet, please email retail@poshmark.com with why you’d be a good fit.

Where is Wholesale located in the app?
Wholesale is located in your Shop Tab. Remember, you won’t be able to see or shop Wholesale until you meet the above criteria. Once you’re eligible, Wholesale will automatically appear in your Shop Tab!

Ok so I buy inventory from Wholesale. Then what?
After you buy your wholesale inventory, the brand will ship your merchandise within 7 days (most brands ship out their orders within 3 days of purchase!). Once you get the items, photograph and style them to fit your Boutique. Next, list it in your closet by tagging it as Boutique in the listing details.

When it’s time to select quantity, be sure to select Multiple and then tap Size & Availability and select the number of available styles you have. For example, if you bought a pack of 4 sunglasses, you would select 4.
