Happy Independence Day from Poshmark! Today we are trading time at PMHQ for time with family and friends to celebrate - and shop, of course. We thought we would add to the celebration by offering freedom from shipping fees on orders of $50 or more through Sunday, July 6th at 11:50pm PST.
May your holiday weekend be filled with fun and Posh Finds!
There’s only one thing better than getting a #PoshFind delivered to your door, and that’s being able to send one off to a newfound PFF! Here are some tips and tricks for making your #PoshPackage oh-so-sweet:
Whether sleek and simple is your style or you love all things color, let your personal style shine through. A twist of colorful ribbon, a touch of rustic twine, wrapping paper, customized stickers—little touches like this can make all the difference when shipping off your buyer’s new #PoshFind. The icing on the cake? A handwritten thank you note, straight from you to your new PFF!
Plus, don’t forget to snap a pic and share on social with #PoshPackaging to show off your fine work!
Be sure to choose the right kind of packaging for your order. Shipping envelopes can work for smaller items that can be folded, such as tops or skirts. When it comes to shipping out that delicate necklace, a pair of sunglasses, or a structured bag, boxes always work best. Just be sure to choose a size that best fits your needs, and don’t forget to add padding when necessary! Wrapping up your item in tissue paper doesn’t just look pretty, it also helps protect it. We’ve also love using magazine pages, torn straight from our fave fashion mags, to add a little bit of padding to a package.
We know how easy it is to mix up an item or two when you’re packaging up multiple orders. Here’s our little secret: Post-It notes! Just jot down the item (or items) in the order on a Post-It note, stick it on the shipping label right after you print it out, and double check your boxes right before you tape them up. That way, you can make sure that your West Coast PFF gets those shoes she’s been eyeing while your East Coast PFF gets her bag. A little reminder goes a long way!
Nothing says freedom quite like a three-day weekend spent celebrating with patriotic pride. And what wardrobe staple is more American than blue jeans? So for this installment of Wish List Wednesday we are sharing our favorite denim deals.
Summer is in full swing and what better way to celebrate the season than by filling your closet with bright, cheerful colors? Holly’s closet really caught our eye this week, not just because of her clear, bright covershots, but for her assortment of colorful wardrobe options as well! Whether you prefer to add your pop of color in dresses, tops, or accessories, you’ll be sure to discover your next #PoshFind in this Posher’s closet. Just make sure you head over to shop soon before your favorite picks are swooped up!
Now that we’ve shared a closet that we are crushing on, it’s your turn! These Poshers loved their PoshFinds so much that they created #ClosetCrush listings to show them off and say thanks. Make one today and you could be featured!
It’s time to kick off another week of shopping parties! This time around we not only have fabulous style influencers Ashley, Melissa and Tracy and our lovely community hosts, but we also have some PMHQers joining in the fun. We thought we’d have them share some of their insights into all things Work Week Chic before getting along with the week’s schedule.
Favorite trend of the moment: My favorite trend of the moment is definitely loose trousers/joggers. They are so effortlessly chic to wear from the office to a night out with friends. I love how you can pair them with a blazer during the work week and switch up the look with a denim jacket for casual weekend wear.
Favorite trend of the moment: Mules and clogs.
Favorite trend of the moment: Mules + pineapples! I am loving that the whole office has pineapple fever!

We are excited to announce our latest Poshmark feature: Rate Your Purchase! With this new tool, we’re empowering sellers to build trust and be recognized for providing an exemplary, five-star shopping experience for their buyers.
So, what exactly is Rate Your Purchase?
This new feature allows buyers to rate their purchase experience with 1 to 5 stars. If the rating is four stars or less, buyers can suggest up to six ways the seller could improve: item description, item cleanliness, packaging, ship time, seller responsiveness or other.
When can a buyer rate a purchase?
Buyers have up to 30 days to rate their purchase after the order is accepted or returned to the seller due to not being as described. The Rate Your Purchase page can be accessed from the order details page. Any purchases within the last 30 days of the launch of this feature are also eligible for review.
How can a buyer rate a purchase?
After a buyer accepts an order, they will automatically see the Rate Your Purchase page. If the order was auto-accepted three days after delivery or an item not as described issue was resolved, the buyer can choose Rate Your Purchase from the order details page.
How are ratings displayed?
Ratings information is displayed privately in My Closet Stats. Sellers and buyers can also see their individual ratings details under My Purchases and My Sales. While our plan is to have an average rating score visible for everyone within closets in the near future, we wanted to give the community a chance to get used to the ratings feature before making the information public.
How are ratings communicated to buyers and sellers?
Buyers receive an email and newsfeed reminder one day after an order is auto-accepted or an item not as described issue is resolved. Sellers receive a push notification and newsfeed alert when they receive a rating.
Can I edit or appeal a rating?
No, buyers aren’t able to edit their ratings and sellers can’t appeal ratings. We expect the Poshmark community will almost always be fair and helpful when leaving ratings. However, there may be times when a seller feels a specific rating is unfair. Their average rating will reflect the great experience they deliver to buyers.
We are excited for this new feature as we know it will shine a bright light on the amazing purchase experience all of our Poshers deliver every day. Rate Your Purchase will strengthen the trust between buyers and sellers that encourages everyone to shop the closets of their stylemates again and again.
We consider ourselves pretty savvy shoppers at PMHQ. We scroll through Showrooms, consult with our PFFs over purses, and we’re never shy about asking sellers a question or two over an item we’ve been eyeing.
Whether you’re finally ready to make that Like yours or you’re indulging in an impulse buy, here are a few questions to ask the seller before you hit that Buy button.
Can you measure it for me?
It goes without saying—fit can be tricky! What fits your PFF perfectly might look completely different on you. Instead of asking how a seller how that dress or top fits, we have a better alternative: Ask your seller for exact measurements. Getting specific measurements from a seller for areas like the inseam, bust, and waist can help give you a better idea of if an item will fit you just the way you want it.
Can you model the item?
If stock photos or photos of the item on a hanger leave you scratching your head, don’t be shy about asking your seller if she can model an item for you. This way, you can see multiple angles of that dress you’ve been eyeing.
What color is this?
Lusting over a pair of fierce heels but aren’t quite sure if it’s the color you’ve been looking for? Ask the seller to take a photo of the item under natural or outdoor lighting, with no filters applied to the photo. Having a clear, well-lit photo to reference can make all the difference when you’re looking for an item in your favorite hue.
Does it zip, button, or snap?
Little details like closures and hardware can be easy to overlook! If you hate fumbling over buttons or want to make sure that the bag snaps shut, simply ask your seller for specifics.
Is the dust bag, original box, or belt included?
If you’re buying a pair of shoes or a bag, it’s always a good idea to ask the seller if they still have the dust bag or original box. Or maybe you want to recreate your Closet Crush’s awesome styling in her Covershot—don’t forget to ask her if that belt or sash she cinched the waist with is included. That way, you and the seller are completely clear on what should be packaged up before you complete the transaction.
Last but not least, don’t forget to leave a note thanking your seller for the extra time and help! Even if you decide an item doesn’t work for you, you might just gain a brand new PFF.
We’re jet-setting across the country to bring a LIVE Posh Party to the East Coast. New York City, are you ready for us?
Joining the Poshmark team will be five fabulous co-hosts, each with an impeccable eye for style. These local NYC fashion bloggers style such great looks that we had to share some of our favorites. Plus, if you see your stylemate, don’t forget you can shop their closets! Good style is better shared, don’t you think?
Whether it’s for work or play, Olivia knows how to make an outfit pop. We love this easy, breezy jumpsuit styled for the city with heels and a nod to summer with the fedora.
Sarah’s style is always fun and fearless. She’s brought some edge to the traditional summer shorts-and-tank outfit with asymmetrical coral shorts, gladiator sandals and an of-the-moment crop top.
Martha dared to bare with this latest look and we’re smitten with her effortless cool-girl vibe. We love how she mixes up her personal style, proving that risk-taking can have fabulous results.
You can’t help but smile at this look by Jen. Yet again she’s mastered color play by pairing a sunny dress with blue necklaces, and finished the look with natural woven hat and clutch.
Naty has the touch when it comes to making trend pieces seamlessly integrate into her wardrobe and making them her own. These high-waisted floral shorts are so chic and sleek when styled with a blazer and ankle-strap black sandals.
