This week the Community team is sharing Posh tips for all things shipping-related.
Knowing all the in’s and out’s of Poshmark’s shipping policies is one step towards becoming a rockstar seller. Read on to get the low-down on four of the most common questions regarding shipping.
HOW MUCH DO SHIPPING LABELS COST?
Currently, our shipping rates are as follows:
If the item is priced at $25 or more, shipping is $4.99
If the item is priced at less than $25, shipping is $6.99
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING COSTS?
When a buyer purchases an item, she pays the shipping amount at the time of purchase. Once the seller has packaged up their sale, if the package weighs more than 2 lbs. she will be responsible for the costs of upgrading the shipping label.
WHAT IF MY PACKAGE WEIGHS MORE THAN 2 LBS?
By default, Poshmark’s shipping labels are for packages that weigh no more than 2 lbs. Sellers should be aware of the weight of the items they are selling and factor that into the selling price. If the package weighs more than the initial 2 lbs, they will need to go into the app, find the order, and request a label with the correct shipping weight. Please note that upgrading a shipping label costs $1.99 per pound and will be deducted from the seller’s redeemable earnings. Finally, the maximum weight our labels support is 10 lbs.
HOW CAN I AVOID ISSUES AT THE POST OFFICE?
The best way to avoid encountering trouble when dropping off your package at the post office is to thoroughly inspect your label to make sure it is accurate. First, make sure your label reflects the correct weight of your package. If not, be sure to request a higher weight label through the Poshmark app. Next, make sure the date of your label reflects the day you intend to ship. Most post offices will not accept a package with an expired shipping label. To request a new label, simply find the order within the app and request a new label on the day you intend to ship. Finally, make sure you are using the correct box; our labels only support regular Priority Mail boxes or plain brown boxes.
We hope this makes shipping your next Posh package an absolute breeze! Happy Poshing!
Ever notice the little yellow ‘Reserve’ flag at the bottom of a listing? Have you come across a listing that says “Reserved” in the title with an outrageous price tag? Find out what they mean below!
Yellow Reserve Banner: This automatically appears on a listing when a buyer clicks on the ‘Buy Now’ button on the listing. It remains there for 10 minutes while they enter their information and complete the purchase. This flag is controlled by the system and there is no way to manually add it to a listing.
How to Manually Reserve an Item: Poshmark does not currently support item reservations. However, some sellers elect to place an item on “reserve” for a buyer by raising the price on their listing to something very high (e.g. $999) and editing the listing’s title to include a note that the item is reserved. Then, when the buyer is ready to buy, the seller changes the price back to the correct price. Please note that “reserves” are not guaranteed and can still be purchased by anyone on Poshmark.
Step 1: Poshmark makes buying very simple and secure. See an item you like and want to buy? Tap the ‘Buy Now’ button on the listing. If you see an item within your Feed, click the blue ‘View details and buy’ link on the bottom right-hand corner of the listing to get to the blue ‘Buy Now’ button.
Step 2: Enter your credit card, your shipping, and your billing information. We always require a credit card to purchase an item on Poshmark. Rest assured that we will not charge anything to your card in the event that the total price of the item (after taxes and shipping) is covered by your current balance and any credits you may have in your account.
Step 3: Carefully review your order information. If all looks good, submit your order.
Please refrain from paying or buying outside of Poshmark through PayPal or other offline means, as we cannot protect you if the item you purchase is damaged, lost, or misrepresented. You may also be banned from the Poshmark community.
Poshmark connects stylemates from across the country. The more stylemates you have, the higher the chances are that you will sell items from your closet. That’s why growing your following count is important. Here are some of our simple tips on how you can grow your Poshmark network:
Tip 1: Search to find others like you. Use Poshmark’s search functionality and ‘My Size’ feature to find listings that are exactly your size. When you spot something you like, click through and check out the rest of the closet. You’ll come across plenty of stylemates who will also love to shop your closet, so follow and begin engaging with them!
Tip 2: Share Posh Love. Come across something that you like and you think others will like as well? Share it! Trust us when we say that the shares you help spread will get returned, which can result in new followers and sales!
Tip 3: Be active in Posh Parties. Make your presence known during a time when a high number of women are on Poshmark at the same time by joining, sharing, and engaging in Posh Parties! Everyone, not just your followers, can view your items and those you share in a Posh Party, so use this as an opportunity to recruit new closet followers. Just remember to stay in-theme when listing and sharing to the parties!
Tip 4: Recruit your real world friends to join Poshmark. Chances are that you and your real world friends have similar tastes when it comes to fashion. Encourage them to join Poshmark so they can list their own items, follow you, and shop your closet!
Tip 5: Take advantage of social media. Make Poshmark a part of your regular social media routine to help build viral buzz for your Poshmark closet and activity. Added a new listing? See a pair of shoes you think one of your social media friends would like? Shipping out sales with extra-cute packaging? Use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube to spread the word and connect with those in other social networks.
Did you know that you can shop all of your favorite brands on Poshmark? That’s right - Poshmark is your one-stop shop for amazing products at even more amazing prices (and you don’t even have to leave your house)!
To search for items by a specific brand:
Filter the search results even further to find products by the brand in a specific category, your sizes, price range, and new with tags. Simply click the ‘Filter’ button on the top right-hand corner and select what you’d like to see. To view the new results, click on the ‘Back’ button.
Search. Find. Shop. All in the palm of your hand.
With so many fabulous products that are being added to closets on Poshmark daily, it’s safe to say that one of the most-popular features on the app is the ‘My Likes’ section. Use ‘My Likes’ to keep track of all of your favorite listings and Poshmark stylemates!
To like an item, either click the ‘Like’ button at the bottom of a listing or double tap on any image within the listing.
Every time you ‘like’ an item on Poshmark, the item is placed in your ‘My Likes’ section, which can be found at the top of your main Feed.
Open up your ‘My Likes’ section when you’re ready to shop to find which products you’ve had your eyes on (and which ones belong in your closet ASAP!).
Happy liking and shopping!
Below are common abbreviations and phrases found on Poshmark:
Poshmarker / Posher / Poshaholic: A member of the Poshmark community. She most-likely has an addiction and/or obsession to Poshmark, opening the app and attending Posh Parties multiple times a day.
Feed: Your Feed is the first tab in the Poshmark app that allows you to see the activity for the people you follow, including new listings and listings they share. You can also access ‘My Likes’ and ‘Search’ directly from the Feed.
Following: Following another person on Poshmark means that you love their style and want to see their new listings, as well as the listings they share on your main Feed. To follow someone, click the blue ‘Follow’ button at the top-right hand corner of a closet. You can keep track of who you’re following at the top of your Poshmark closet.
Followers: Followers are the people on Poshmark who love your style and are keeping track of your closet.

Covershot: A Covershot is the very first photo in a listing - and first impressions definitely count, so be sure to wow potential buyers by including a gorgeous Covershot in your listings! We find that if you wear your item in your Covershot to show how you would style it, the chances of selling your item are much greater.
Posh Party: Posh Parties are virtual shopping parties that happen in the Poshmark app. Join the Poshmark Team and hundreds of thousands of women across the country for a Party where you can share your listings to all Party goers, shop other Party goers’ listings, and discover new people (and their closets) to follow.
