I started a Poshmark closet in March 2021, and now I’m addicted! Why did I never try it before?!

If you haven’t joined the platform, here are a few reasons why you should. But first…

What is Poshmark?

Poshmark operates as a second-hand seller market that runs like a social media site. Each person who joins chooses between being a seller, buyer, or a little bit of both.

In the past few years, second-hand seller markets, especially clothing, thrived. From teenagers to grandmothers, to dads and avid collectors, everyone has a place on Poshmark.

If you choose to list a few things from your own closet, you need access to a label printer and you need to get a few priority mail packages (for free!). Either pick them up at your local post office or have them delivered.

The shipping on each item is a flat rate of $7.45, which is paid by the buyer unless you choose to give a discount. Poshmark keeps 20% of your earnings unless you sell an item for $14 or less. Then, they keep a flat fee of $2.95. Compared to other seller sites, this commission rate is actually really great!

If you don’t have clothes you want to sell or if you like to collect other types of items like home decor or vintage/antique items, you can sell those on Poshmark as well. Really, you can sell just about anything on Poshmark!

Now that you have an idea of how Poshmark operates, let’s jump into why you should join today!

1. Earn Money on Clothes You Would Otherwise Donate

Most of us have extra clothes in our closet that we haven’t touched in over a year. Why not try listing them on Poshmark for some extra cash. You especially should if your items still have tags, look brand new, or are a popular brand like Anthropologie, Free People, or vintage Levi’s.

2. Make PFFs

Poshmark Friends Forever – sounds a little corny, but so many awesome people are active on this site. You have a unique opportunity to connect with some rad people, like vintage clothing pickers, designer shoe curators, and antique jewelry collectors.

3. Stay Busy if You’re Unemployed

Many of us lost our jobs due to Covid-19 (myself included), so we need activities to participate in while we job search. It’s been so fun waking up in the morning to go to thrift stores and look through clothes for the gems. It’s given me a sense of purpose.

4. Put Good Vibes out in the World

If you enjoy sending cards, baking cookies, or generally just sharing the love, then this platform is the perfect place for you. Stand out from the crowd and show that you care by handwriting thank you cards and packaging your items beautifully. You can even throw in a small free gift like a bracelet or pair of earrings. Or consider giving a discount to any future purchasers to keep customers coming back to your closet.

5. Fund Your Shopping Habit

If you would like some supplemental cash to buy clothes, eat out, or get your hair done, Poshmark enables you to do all of that monthly. Finding full-time employment that pays the bills and allows for extra cash can be hard to come by these days. That’s why side hustles, like selling on PM, are really popular.

What’s Stopping You?

See you on Poshmark!
