My Poshmark Experience

Hey guys, thanks for joining me today! As you can tell from the title, I am going to be telling everyone about my experience using Poshmark. If you don’t know what Poshmark is, on the Poshmark website it says “Poshmark is a simple and fun way to buy and sell fashion. Shop the closets of women across Ameria- and sell yours too!”. Basically, it is a website/app for women to both buy clothes from other women and also sell the clothes they no longer want.

To list an item for sale, you simply to take a couple photos of the item, and input a little bit of information such as what the item is, the brand it’s from, and size. Lastly, you put how much money you are asking for the piece of clothing. All of your listings are put together in a virtual “closet” that people are able to shop from. If a buyer is interested, they can buy it straightforward or can try and negotiate by sending you an offer which you can choose to accept, decline, or counteroffer. Once one of your items is sold, Poshmark sends you an email with a shipping label that is already paid for. You simply place the item into an appropriate box, print out the shipping label,  tape the shipping label onto the box, and drop it off at the post office. Your funds from the item are held until the buyer receives their item and accepts it. If the item is not marked as accepted within three days of delivery, your funds are released to you. You have a couple of options when it comes to redeeming the money you have money. You can send it as direct deposit to your bank account (this is what I do) or you can have Poshmark send you a check. You can also use it to purchase other items on Poshmark if you leave it in your redeemable funds.

As a buyer, you are able to browse through thousands of listings. You can filter them by size, brand, or category. If you find an item you are interested in, you can purchase it or send an offer and try to negotiate the items price. Shipping is always paid for by the buyer and there is currently one option: $6.49 for expedited (1-3 day) shipping.

That’s pretty much the gist of Poshmark, but Poshmark has a guide and a support center right on the app that is really easy to access if you run into trouble or have any questions.

Now on to my personal experience with the company. I have been a member on Poshmark since 2013 but didn’t become active until the past year or two. I sell on there more than I buy, but that is because I use it as a way to make extra money. I think it is a great way to free up space in your closet and get rid of clothes you no longer wear and get paid for doing it! I’ve never had any bad experiences with the app, and all of my interactions with other woman have been extremely positive. My biggest complaint is that Poshmark does take a whopping 20% of your sale price. I personally feel like this is a high percentage, but I think it’s still better than having old, unworn clothes pile up and take up space. So overall, I really enjoy Poshmark and have no intentions to stop using it. Here is a link to the Poshmark website if anyone is interested, but I prefer the app: https://poshmark.com/. If anyone is interested in following me or checking out my closet, my username is @shelbynicc. Be sure to drop your username below if you use Poshmark so I can follow you! Also, if you use my code NEVPN when you sign up you get $5 automatically, and I will receive $5 after you make your first purchase. It’s a win-win for both of us. If you have any other questions about Poshmark or my experience with them, let me know in the comments. *This post is not sponsored in any way by Poshmark. Thanks so much for reading! I’ll talk to you guys next time!

    1. Hey, Amanda! It really is great in my opinion. I hate that it isn’t available in the UK for you, but an alternative to Poshmark is a company called Mercari. I’ve also had great experiences on there. Maybe it could be of use to you!

  1. Thank you so much for this . My closets are getting really full and I have been trying to figure out how to sell it. This is a really great tool. Thank you

    1. You’re so welcome! I hope it helps you out. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try to answer them 😊

  2. I just got rid of a lot of my clothes in my closet, but I wish I would’ve known of this handy dandy tool! I will keep it in mind for next time 🙂

    1. It definitely wouldn’t hurt to check it out! I hope it works well for you! Thanks for reading!

  3. I’ve sold a few things on Poshmark too and you nailed it! Yes, 20% is high but you are so right – at least we can sell the things we aren’t in love with anymore!

  4. Thanks for the experience review. I have seen poshmark but never used it. Now knowing more about it I would probably like to use to get rid of some stuff I no longer want or use and make some money from it.

  5. I love Poshmark, I joined about two years ago and bought my first hair straightening brush for half the price it was normally listed at. Great Review & I love your site!

    1. That’s awesome! You really can find some awesome deals on there. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m glad you enjoyed it! 😊
