And as always, sharing is caring!

Scoring a good deal on Poshmark is all about finding it first. Read on for a handful of tips that can help you nab the next amazing Posh find for your wardrobe.

Find your Stylemate
First things first, find your stylemates on Poshmark. A stylemate is someone who wears the same sizes you do and shares a similar taste in style. There is no one simple way to instantly find your stylemate, but you can find a lot of great closets by searching for people who sell pieces from your favorite brands and designers. Following these users mean that when they list new items, you’ll see them in your feed on Poshmark, therefore the potential for seeing them before other users is greater.

Shop “First Look” Showrooms
The second and third party every day always has a showroom that is titled “First Look.” In case you’re not familiar with it, this showroom is a one-stop-shop for all items that have never been shared to a Posh Party before. While these items are not necessarily brand new to Poshmark, there is still a pretty good chance for you to unearth a killer deal by perusing this showroom.

Search Poshmark by Keyword
Are you on the hunt for a specific item or style? Try searching for the item name or using keywords to scour all closet listings. If you don’t find the item you’re looking for right away, don’t fret. Just check back regularly because you never know when your dream piece will be listed for sale. Additionally Poshmark automatically saves your most recent search history in the app so you can easily search again whenever you want!

Bartering With Care
Some Poshers are open to bartering their listed prices, but your success in doing so all depends on how you approach it. Many users are turned off by comments such as “Lowest?” or offers that are significantly lower than the listed prices. You’ll find better results by approaching users with full sentences and bargaining in terms of percentage. For instance, try figuring out what 15% off their listed price is and ask if they’d be willing accept that amount.

Seasonality of Shopping
There is a quite a bit of seasonality when it comes to shopping; you tend to buy swimsuits and sandals at the spring and coats, sweaters, and boots at the fall. In considering the law of supply and demand, the more in demand a particular kind of item is, the more expensive it’ll be. That means at the end of a season, those seasonal items will most likely be available at deeper discounts due to the decline in demand. Bonus tip: This is also something helpful to keep in mind when stocking your closet as a seller.


Recruit Your Friends
Get friends to help you shop! The more eyes looking for any particular order, the better. At PMHQ, we’ve all become familiar with one another’s sizes and styles so when we find something that’s perfect for them, we tag them to let them know. And don’t worry if your friends aren’t on Poshmark already because you can invite them! The best part is it’s an easy $50 bucks for you (plus $5 for each friend) if they use your referral code!

We hope that by using some or all of these tips will help you find you new go-to handbag, your dream shoes, or anything else your closet desires.

Posh Tip: How to Find Your Friends on Poshmark

With your help over the past two years, Poshmark has become the go-to destination for anyone who wants to buy and sell fashion straight from her closet. We’ve made it so incredibly easy that our community uploads a million dollars worth of items each day, and in the past year alone, you have bought and sold over 1.5 million items from each other (whoa, that’s a whole lot of shoes, dresses and handbags)! As a result, Poshmark has created one of the largest fashion stores in the country powered by the women of America. 

Today we’re excited to introduce the world’s first ever report on peer-to-peer fashion trends from the trenches of the booming Closet-Sharing Economy where women are unlocking the value in their closets and empowering themselves around shopping. Curious what the top selling brands on Poshmark are? What moves the fastest from listing to sale? When the best time to be on the app is? Check out this infographic recapping 2013 on Poshmark.

Hungry for more? Here are some of Poshmark’s additional key findings from the Closet-Sharing Economy:

Handbags, shoes, jewelry and dresses are the most popular items in the marketplace: Handbags in general take the top spot in this year’s Closet-Sharing Economy report, reflecting broader market trends where handbags represent one of the fastest growing fashion segments. This segment is growing in the post-recession environment where consumers are getting smarter about their spending. This has led to a boom in Poshmark’s secondary market where women are still buying the top global brands, but doing so at up to 70 percent off original retail prices. In addition to handbags and shoes, other popular categories include jewelry and accessories, followed by dresses and skirts.

Was 2013 the year that Android finally became fashionable?: With the introduction of Android users into the marketplace in late 2013, Poshmark is seeing very little difference in their buying and selling activity versus iOS users, leading the company to believe that there is a trend in style savvy women switching to Android devices.

Social shopping leads to sales: In addition to being the largest mobile fashion marketplace, Poshmark is a unique social community in which women interact seven to eight times per day for 20-25 minutes on average. That means the average Posher has spent over 150 hours on Poshmark in 2013 and the top 25 sellers average over 100,000 people following their closet. Besides buying and selling, they are liking, commenting and sharing over a million times every day.

Women love to party: When the company first started throwing their signature Posh Parties where women gather around in the app in real-time to buy and sell within a certain theme or designer, they were doing three to four parties a week and would see approximately 50 listings for each party. Now the app offers three parties a day, seven days a week and the largest evening party has seen over 250,000 listings. At any given moment, a party can have over 50,000 people simultaneously sharing and shopping in real-time.

Methodology:
By looking at a combination of revenue, orders and listings, Poshmark compiled its 2013 Closet Sharing Report based on over 1.5 million items sold in its mobile fashion marketplace from January 1 - December 31, 2013 to determine popularity and sell through of the brands and products across America’s connected closets.

If we had to choose just one (and by one, we mean one of many) investment piece for fall, a leather jacket would definitely be at the top of the list. Dress it up with a fabulous dress and heels or down with jeans, a sweater and boots- the luxurious layering options are endless and guaranteed to make you look super rad with a whole lot of chic.

Treat yourself to one that you can wear all winter long! Here are some faves from Poshmark:

1. Michael Kors Quilted Jacket- $300 (Retail $450)

2. Helmut Lang Shearling Jacket- $1500 (Retail $2195)

3. All Saints Moto Jacket- $485 (Retail $700)

Happy Poshing!
