If you haven’t heard of Poshmark before, it is an app that you can use to sell your clothing, purses, and shoes as well as buy gently used items… and it’s amazing!! Talk about an easy way to rid of unwanted clothes and make some money or find an awesome deal on something new! We both have been using Poshmark and have found the process to be super simple and reliable. Sweetness has actually been selling on Poshmark for a couple of years now and has made over $1,200! It is a great way to really spring clean your closet and make a change to your wardrobe, whether you are buying or selling!
If you are interested in selling your items, we broke down the process below:
Step 1: Clean out your closet! Get rid of those items you no longer wear or are in love with anymore because we’re sure someone else will love it! We like to go with the 1 year rule, if it’s been a year since it’s been worn, then rid of it… it’s time for a change!
Step 2: Take pictures of your items. We both like to take pictures that not only make the item look desirable, but also shows all aspects of the item. Take far away pictures, close ups, pictures on the inside and tags, and if you can – take pictures of you wearing it! When you shop online you often like to see what the item looks like on the model so this is the same concept!
Step 3: Create your Poshmark account and upload the pictures of the items to your closet. Poshmark gives you a profile or “closet” as they call it where all of your items can be seen. Just create the new listing, describe the item and viola! But be sure to be honest about your products. If there is any sort of defect, you MUST indicate it and show it in the pictures. Though the shoppers know these are used items, you don’t want them to receive any surprises!
Step 4: Once an item of yours sells, it’s time to package it up and ship it out. Poshmark will email you a shipping label, you just have to provide the packaging. We use the priority mail envelopes from USPS. The envelopes are free and we like to stock up on them. We then just tape the shipping label to the envelope and put it in our mailbox for the postal man. It’s so easy!
Step 5: Help the community out! You have the ability to share other Posher’s items with your followers and they will share your items in return! It’s basically like reposting something on social media and it will help you gain more exposure and reach more buyers!
As Poshmark says, Happy Poshing!
