Poshmark is the new thrifting but let me tell you how it all started. 🛍Years ago (2013-2015) Whenever I wanted to get new items I would sell my old items at local thrift stops like Crossroad , Wasteland , and Buffalo Exchange. The experience use to be fun going with friends and seeing what cool items you could get in exchange , but it lost its spark over a while after taking huge bags of clothes only to get low offers or told it wasn’t in season for them to purchase🚫. Any one who knows the lines use to be longgggggg lol
I started selling on poshmark in 2018 I don’t remember how I heard about the platform but it was the best thing for me since I had interest in starting an online business. I haven’t been the best at trying to market and gain an audience , so poshmark having the traffic + audience was perfect for me to get started. I would sell my NWT items or items that no longer fit , the BEST PART was I was able to set my own prices💰. I then started purchase sample piece from the fashion district and post from time to time to see how they would do before selling them on website . It’s get even better , if there was a shirt or shoe I wanted to purchase that might have been SOLD OUT , I was able to find it out POSHMARK ✅ . I can go on and on about the perks and benefits about poshmark but it’s best you check it out yourself. I have over 20k followers who understand the community of sharing is caring. Not to mention I love the incentive Poshmark gives for sharing others items and connecting with new members💕
It feels like they designed the app in 2012 and haven’t touched it since. The features are clunky and the UX/UI is just plain bad. Some examples: you have to set filters one at a time, going back to the filter menu to set additional filters each time. You can list swimsuits and bras by cup size, but can’t set your own cup size to filter a search by with “my size.” You can list jumpsuits but also can’t filter them by size. You can’t rotate photos when listing an item. While writing the description for a listing, you can’t see the entire listing as it’s confined to a tiny box 1/3 of the screen, but the second third of the screen is un-used while drafting. You can only select 4 sizes while searching, including petites/tall/maternity. What if I’m a size 8, 10, L, 10 petite, 12 petite and L petite? There’s no reason to limit size searches to just four. All of these are little examples of how annoying the app is to use. That doesn’t prevent me from spending too much $ here- but still. Update your app! It’s 2022!
This is the best app to sell by far. Buyers and sellers have protection from scams as well as lost mail & dispute resolution procedures. There is one price shipping posh handles, including preparation of a label. You may recycle old packaging from Amazon or elsewhere. The community is friendly, supportive & engaging. The bundle feature is great way for discounts and to reduce shipping costs! It’s simple interface is far superior to ebay and there is no packaging cost guesswork like Mercari. Poshmark has never charged me for listing or marketing items like Etsy, Ebay or others have done! No surprises, just straight commission on the funds it collects for you and sends you after buyer’s receipt. Poshmark is superior to other selling platforms.
I understand that customer service works very hard for us poshers. I barely make anything by the time the commission gets taken out Buyers hate the shipping price. I’m wondering how we can make this a more popular way to sell and buy items. Closet clear out does nothing but lower your price with reduced shipping no. Then you can’t raise the price back up then make another closet clear out. It’s lowered twice the amount now because of the price it was set at to begin with. That frustrates me. Can anything be done about any of this.

I like browsing this site and seeing what luxury items are out there but it’s so hard to trust when buying because they do not authenticate their items. The things I’ve bought I’ve paid a third party to authenticate before accepting. They DO let you put in a report of your items are not authentic, but it’s still a hassle if you buy something for a lot of money, wait for it, pay to get it authenticated, then have to send back if not. Honestly, I probably won’t use this site anymore for luxury items, but for home things and non-luxury it’s great. Would recommend Mercari over Poshmark for luxury.
Ive just started not to long ago actually trying to sell on Poshmark and have been targeted as soon as I posted my products on Poshmark 05/05/22 and woke up to my account being restricted for items not being real i purchased myself baby its as real as some of you dummies on there but because of my skin and it definitely seems like my skin has something to do with it i cant have real things yea 1 star is very appropriate i will not waste my time with online bullying from any one nor racist actions nether also i will never recommend Poshmark to any one
i wasn’t originally going to write a review, because i had made the mistake of thinking this was a mercari style app; which is no big deal i should have read more into it.
the problem arises when i tried to delete my account i got an error saying that my app had to be “upgraded” or had to be deleted from their website due to “security reasons”. not only does it not detail at all what “upgrade” it was referring to, but i don’t believe it at all. it’s purely a method of keeping you attached to your account to inflate user numbers just like Spotify does.
From the encouraging little messages that pop up on my phone to the money I receive from the items I sell here on Poshmark. Poshmark has kept me going in more ways than one. I am able to financially help my mom who is on permanent disability get many of the the things she needs and even some things she wants. The selling platform is as easy as it gets. My mom even participates by liking and sharing. Poshmark is the best. It’s as good as it gets and I am forever grateful!
I rate you 5 STARS! And look forward to a long and prosperous relationship!
This place should be shutdown!
Ton of scammers are selling products.
Because of that reason I paused for a while, I give it try again but I got a scammer “damienhoseph” selling a very lose body shape with a “ultimate fit tag” replaced!
I’ve been using assets body shape for a long time and I know how the label with “a whole lot♥️♥️♥️” on it!
I can probably write a book about all of the scammers I’ve been dealt with, and the most worst customer service who doesn’t even have a phone number and crazy high shipping price for the scammers!
I used to love posh, but now I am using another app more because of 1) 20% selling fee which is higher than other selling sites (5-10%), 2) higher shipping fee for small item (good if you buy more items together from same seller), 3) too many fake sellers/accounts who accept orders but not ship, so posh can hold money in their account for 7 days (+ more after cancellation). I reported those sellers, but posh decided not to control but enjoy those fakes sellers so they can keep moneys in their account. So I am leaving posh.
