How Does Poshmark Work?
Poshmark is so simple.
All you have to do is download the app and create an account. From there, take a picture of the item you want to sell and upload it to your Poshmark “closet”. Add the required information for your listing such as price, condition, and item category. Then list your item! You can repeat this process for as many items as you have to sell.
Once a buyer purchases your item, package your item, print and add the prepaid label that was sent to your email, and drop off at your local post office or blue USPS mailbox. Once your buyer receives their item, they will mark as delivered and rate their experience. Then your payment will show up in your Poshmark account. You can withdraw your money whenever you’d like.
Can I Sell Anything on Poshmark?
Poshmark can be used to sell men, women, and kid’s clothing, shoes, and accessories, as well as home items.
What Boxes Do I Use to Ship on Poshmark?
You can receive FREE boxes from USPS in the mail to ship your Poshmark items.
Go to the USPS website here and select any size of shipping supplies you’d like that say “priority mail”.
Make sure to not select shipping supplies that say “express” on them as those do not work. They must only say priority mail. Then enter in your address and the shipping supplies will be mailed to your home absolutely free of charge.
Who Pays Poshmark Shipping?
The buyer pays for shipping. The shipping cost is automatically added to the item price when the buyer makes a purchase from your closet. Poshmark will email you a pre-paid shipping label as soon as a buyer places an order.
You are able to offer discounted shipping to people who like an item in your closet. If you choose to offer discounted shipping, the amount discounted is then taken from the money you’d make on that sale.
What Percentage of Your Sale Does Poshmark Keep?
Because you are using Poshmark’s platform to sell your items, they will keep a percentage of each sale. For all sales under $15, Poshmark keeps $2.95 from your total sale. For sales more than $15, Poshmark gets 20% of your sale and you get the other 80%.
What is a Poshmark bundle?
A Poshmark bundle is where people add 2 or more items to a “bundle” from the same closet (similar to “adding to cart” on a typical shopping website). You can offer a discount on bundled items in your own Poshmark closet. For example, in my Poshmark closet, I offer a 20% off discount on bundles of 3 items or more. Often times, when somebody bundles items, I offer an even larger discount like 30% just because it’s nice to be able to ship multiple items at once. You can check out my Poshmark closet here!
When Will Poshmark Pay Me?
Poshmark pays you as soon as your buyer as received and accepted their order. You can then withdraw your money whenever you’d like, or you can use it towards your next Poshmark purchase.
You have two options for how to receive your money when withdrawing. You can either receive it by check in the mail, or by a bank direct deposit.
How Do I Offer Deals to Likers?
After a Posher likes an item in your closet, you can click the button on the bottom right below your item picture that says “offer/price drop”. Then, you are able to enter in a lower sale price than what your item is originally listed as. You’ll also have the option to offer discounted shipping but you do not have to. That new offer price will then be sent to anybody who has liked your item.
And That’s a Wrap!
Alright friends, there you have it – the best Poshmark tips to make money fast selling on the Poshmark app. I sincerely hope you give it a try if you have a closet full of items you rarely wear but are in good condition.

Save Money with My Favorite FREE Apps and Resources:
Ibotta is my favorite cash back app that I use on my phone to earn cash back whenever I go shopping.
It includes my favorite stores, like Amazon, Target, Costco, Fred Meyer, and Walmart. All you have to do is add items from your recent shopping trip on the app, scan your receipt, and earn instant cash back!
Ebates is my favorite whenever I’m online shopping because I earn cash back from online purchases.
For example, if Ebates is offering 10% cash back for shopping at Target and my order total is $100, I’ll get $10 cash back. Amazing right?!
The easiest way to use Ebates is by downloading their cash back button (after you sign up for free with Ebates and earn your first $10 just for using my link.) Simply click the Ebates cash back button that will pop up on the store website, make your purchase, and Ebates will deposit your cash back into your Ebates account! It would be crazy NOT to use it and earn money back on all your online shopping.
MyPoints is my favorite way to earn Amazon gift cards and AMC movie theater gift cards in my spare time while watching a show or movie. MyPoints is an online rewards program that gives you points for taking surveys, reading e-mails, shopping, doing web searches, and more.
Once you earn a certain amount of points, you can redeem them for a gift card of your choice to over 75 merchants. They also offer free access to coupons to hundreds of different merchants daily.
I’ve already earned 3 $25 AMC gift cards and a $50 Amazon gift card just by using MyPoints while watching Netflix. Sign up and start earning free gift cards here.
