PoshMark: What It Is and What It Isn’t

Hi guys!

So on my Instastories the other day, I posted a poll to get a sense of whether or not my followers and friends understand what Poshmark is.

My desire is to bring cute, modest, stylish clothing for the everyday woman.

Whether she works outside the home, or she is busy taking care of the littles in the trenches, I don’t think looking and feeling good in the clothes you wear has to be for the elite.

It can be for you, too.

Because come on, who doesn’t feel good in an outfit that she kills it in. Am I right?!

What the poll on IG told me…….

Most of you don’t get it.

And that is okay. Allow me to explain.

What Poshmark is:

*A FREE app that allows you to buy and sell clothes to consumers.

*It is super easy and simple.

*Priority shipping on every purchase.

*Absolutely safe and when you buy an item on Poshmark, payment is not released to the seller until YOU VERIFY that you received the item and you looked it over and verified it as described.

*Ability to buy gently loved items and even barter so that you and the seller can agree on a price you both can feel good about.

*You can make great cash on Poshmark if you have items in your closet that are still in great condition, but you want to make room for.

*Again, the app is FREE!

*If you sell on Poshmark, the money you make on your sales can be used toward any purchases you make on Poshmark, or have it directly deposited to your account or sent a check.

*It is a huge fashion community (check out @poshmark on IG) and you can get a better sense of what they are about. I promise, it is kind of addicting!

*If you are a seller, and you have had a minimum of 10 sales and 4.5 star reviews, you can buy wholesale on Poshmark and sell for retail in the boutique section of your closet! This is what I just recently started doing and let me tell you, it makes the shopping love inside of me so excited. This is what I want to do!

What Poshmark is Not:

*It is not a garage sale or a thrift store. This one is hard for newbies because I think they believe they will see mostly items listed for $5. But that will not be the case. A lot of sellers use Poshmark as their way of bringing in supplemental income (some are even making six figures!). Also something to note: a lot of times newbies will try to offer a really low price on an item, and then they find themselves blocked or even reprimanded for doing so. Poshmark takes 20% from each order ($2.95 from orders under $15) so it really upsets a seller when they feel a buyer is disrespecting them with their offer. So if you are one who is buying on Poshmark, be considerate!

*It is not a trade site! No trades. It is actually stipulated in the rules on Poshmark that trades are forbidden. Those who are selling really aren’t interested in trading.

*It is a clothing, accessory and beauty site for buy/sell. So you won’t find things for your home on this site. All items should be gently loved without major issues, or if brand new with tags, labeled as such and whether or not they are boutique items (if you are qualified to have a boutique).

Those are the basics. It is really simple to use. I know on IG it can be hard to understand, but I highly encourage you to download the app if you haven’t already, find me (@tiffharper143) and look around.

Also, if you download for the first time, use code “tiffharper143” at signup so you can save $5. Trust me. Do it!

Now, let’s go shopping!
