Poshmark is an app that many female shoppers are now using to resale the clothing in their closets, which they no longer need, to make some extra money. It’s meant to give buyers and sellers a fun environment that includes hosting online parties, host picks and an overall positive online experience. However, as any new app develops and becomes more popular sometimes the personal experience fades, but here are a few tips to have the best out of your Poshmark experience.
One of the ways that Poshmark compares to Ebay is that buyers have the ability to leave feedback on purchases underneath items they have bought. Before purchasing from any seller take a look at their prior sales and see what other buyers have said about the items they have sold.
This will let you weed out the sellers that you do not want to buy from, because someone might be selling an item new without tags but a buyer may have reviewed that item in a different way.
Dress Up Your Listings
Selling on Poshmark is pretty easy, it starts will snapping a few pictures of your item from your cell phone and then it walks you through a step-by-step process to describe the item and setting the price.
One of the problems is having your item standout from others on the app. One way to do this is to wear your garment and have this be the main feature image.
“I recommend modeling all items,” says Annie. “I notice the items that I model have a 90% higher chance of selling. Clothes ALWAYS look better on. Not to mention, it saves a lot of time because expect a lot of people to start asking you to model your clothes. Also, accessorize and make complete outfits when you take pics,” according to a Poshmark seller on Ecommercebytes.com.
Another idea is to use filters like Instagram does, to give your garments the leg up when standing out. Just do not alter the actual item too much because it will give your potential buyers the wrong idea.
One of the best things about Poshmark is the ability to negotiate and this goes both ways for buyers and sellers. Sellers should try and mark up their item a little more than what they are wanting to sell the item for because this gives buyers the chance to give offers to sellers.
Everyone loves to get a good deal and negotiating is really a part of the fun on Poshmark. Buyers always check the item comments to see what type of offers have been given to the seller already, consider this like doing your homework and no one wants to deal with someone who is not prepared.
