I initially joined Poshmark to make a few extra pennies by selling some clothes I never wore and old iPhone cases that were tossed in a drawer. I never imagined going from small pocket money to a part-time hustle. For those of you who are not familiar, Poshmark is an app that allows you to buy and sell, pre-owned or new clothing at a fraction of the retail price. I signed up on the app and had no clue what I was doing. I literally snapped a few photos, posted the item, and left it there. Months later, I got a notification on my phone that one of my items had sold and I was completely ecstatic. One, because I forgot it was there in the first place and two, because I was able to get a few dollars for something I would have likely thrown away. After a few random sales, I started doing some research and was amazed to find that this whole community of resellers existed. I watched countless YouTube videos, learned as much as I could about the app and about how to turn a few dollars into a real business. I was quickly addicted. I couldn't sell everything I owned and I knew I had to get my hands on more inventory. I started visiting thrift stores and picking up items that I thought would sell for a good profit. Not being completely familiar with brands in the resale world, I started off by focusing more on how much I was able to source an item for and neglected to research the resale value...a lesson that I learned a little later down the line. It’s been over 2 years since my first sale and I love being a part-time reseller. I started with 2 items in my poshmark closet to now having hundreds of active listings available. There are tons of reselling apps/websites out there. Here are my top reasons for choosing Poshmark: It’s simple:

Though there is a web-based version, I list items straight from my phone. The app is user-friendly and the process is simple from listing to shipping. Streamlined purchase and shipping process:

Once an item sells, Poshmark emails you a prepaid shipping label. You print it, stick it on the package, and drop it to the post office. No need to weigh your items and you can use FREE priority boxes and mailers from your local post office. It’s as simple as that. Returns:

As a seller, one thing I don’t like about some of the other platforms is dealing with the return process. With Poshmark, they moderate the return requests on your behalf. Returns are not allowed for fit or if the buyer changes their mind. As a seller, as long as you are giving accurate descriptions of your items and do not neglect to mention flaws, Poshmark will typically side with the seller. Community:

Poshmark currently has a community of 60 million users in the U.S. and Canada, with numbers continuing to rise. Above all, Poshmark prides itself on community and togetherness. The company hosts its annual conference, Poshfest, where sellers get together for a few days to network, gain knowledge to better their businesses, and have a good time. I’ve attended 2 Poshfests so far and hope to make it an annual event. If you’re looking to make a few extra dollars or if you’re looking to save a few on some new pieces, check out Poshmark.
