Poshmark got a chic new makeover - so fresh, so clean, so fab! We’ve been anticipating the launch of Apple’s newest operating system, iOS7, and working hard behind the scenes to bring you to a spankin’ new look to Poshmark’s iPhone and iPad apps that take advantage of all of the goodies that iOS7 brings. This includes an update to the appearances of our buttons, icons, navigation bars, and so much more!
To update to Apple’s new operating system:
Once you update to iOS7, your iPhone and iPad will automatically update the Poshmark app to our latest version - and one of the greatest things about iOS7 is that all future updates to any apps you have installed will automatically update for you!
So, go on! Update to iOS7 and celebrate our fancy new look with us!
PS: If you don’t upgrade to iOS7 right away, you will still be able to update the app. However, if you’re on iOS6 or below, you will just see minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
We’re always looking for ways to make your Poshing easier, even more viral, and, of course, fun! That’s why we’re excited to tell you a little bit more about our latest app release (available now in the App Store!).
Saved Searches: Have you ever searched for a closet on Poshmark and wished you could bookmark it and access it later? Or are you constantly searching for the perfect aviator sunglasses? Then we’ve got something that will make you really, really happy! The latest version of the Poshmark app now saves your last 100 (yes, one hundred!) searches for items and people. These searches are easily accessible at any time:
Share Listings on Instagram: A few months ago, we introduced the ability to share your Poshmark closets to your Instagram followers. Starting this week, we’re introducing the ability to share your individual listings as well (or others’ listings that you love)! To share individual listings on Instagram, simply:
The more people that see what you have for sale, the more money you’ll make, so spread the word and share away!
So what are you waiting for? Go on and update to the latest version of Poshmark to take advantage of these new features!
We know that our Suggested Users feature has become both a source of overwhelming joy and heartache for our users, and it’s a system that we’ve been hard at work trying to improve. Quite simply, the original system we built could not keep up with the rate at which Poshmark has grown. We realized that in order to scale the Suggested Users program to meet the needs of the community we needed to completely overhaul the system to:
We are so excited to announce the launch of a new system that does just that.
The Suggested Users program is designed to celebrate our diverse community and connect users across the country based on a shared sense of style and fashion. Starting today, we’ll be using algorithms to match you to other users based on your size and style preferences. We’re also introducing an automated rotation system that will change your personalized Suggested Users lists multiple times throughout the day.
Our new system is constantly searching the Poshmark community for high-quality users and adding them to the Suggested Users database. Over the course of the next few months, you can expect to see the system, its algorithms, and the users it recommends change as we learn to optimize for each user.
Thank you for being so passionate about Poshmark and for supporting us through this hyper growth phase.
I really want to be a Suggested User. What can I do to improve my chances? Being a Suggested User is like being an ambassador — a big part of the role is ushering in, welcoming and helping educate new users as they become part of our community. Because of this, we look for users who have a stellar sales history, clear covershots and descriptions, an eye for finding and sharing other community members’ listings, and users who are upstanding members of the Poshmark community.
How will I know if I am a Suggested User? Our system will send you a one-time automated email when you are first identified and flagged in the database as a Suggested User. Make sure you have our email address whitelisted so that the email doesn’t go to spam!
When will I be recommended as a Suggested User? Your rotation as a Suggestion User begins when you receive the email notification from our system. At that time, you will be recommended periodically to users who match your size and style profile. Each list of Suggested Users is dynamic and changes multiple times throughout the course of a day.
How many followers can I expect to get? Because the Suggested Users List is personalized and unique to each user, you won’t be recommended to every new person who joins the Poshmark community, but you will get followers who are relevant to your closet. While the number of followers will be a small fraction of the original program, they will be much more closely matched to your closet and its style.
How long will my Suggested User rotation last? Provided you remain in good standing with the Poshmark community, there is no firm end date to your tenure as a Suggested User. You will continue to be recommended as long as you are an active user and in good standing within the community.
I’ve been a Suggested User before. Can I be one again? Yes! If you have been a Suggested User in the past, you are flagged in our database and you will continue to be recommended to users, provided you are an active user and in good standing within the community.
I got an email saying I’m a Suggested User. Why don’t I see myself on the list? The Suggested Users Program frequently rotates to expose a ton of great closets — your Suggested Users list will change multiple times throughout the day. Keep up the excellent work!
What if I see a Suggested User who is violating the Poshmark Terms of Service? Our new system is built to minimize these kinds of issues, but if you see someone pop up on your Suggested Users list who is violating our Terms of Service, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Now that NY Fashion Week is over, let’s get right to our highlights from this fun-filled, amazing week!
1. NYFW & IFBCon: New York was filled with inspiration this last week (and plenty of snow)! The week was jam-packed with fashion and Poshmark love: from snapping Street Style pictures in Lincoln Center, hearing panelists speak at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference, to meeting up with some rockstar Poshmarkers.
2. Posh Guide: Ever wanted tips on how to make your first sale, reserving an item, or just how to get started using Poshmark? Check out this new Posh Guide which has all these answers and more for you!
3. InstaLove: This week we hit a huge milestone of 6,000 lovely followers on Instagram and we want to say thank you to each and every one of you! How fast can we get to 10K? ;)
4. Posh Package: Yesterday (and everyday for us here at PMHQ, to be honest) was the “official” day of love. While searching through Instagram, we came across one Posh Package that was just bursting with hearts and smiles. How cute is the card and packaging? The thought behind putting this Poshmark package together just blew us away, so we had to share!
5. Party Time. Excellent: Is anyone else excited for a long holiday weekend? Whatever you have planned, whether it be lunch with friends, a nice hike, or date night out, don’t miss out on all the Posh Parties happening three times daily!
PS: #PoshmarkNYFW Instagram Contest Winner Announcement! Thank you to everyone who entered our Instagram Street Style giveaway! We had so many fabulous entries…but a HUGE congrats to Deidre Casey who re-posted this picture!
This week’s Posh Tip will help you add a special touch to your photos before you create a listing. We’re going to share with you all a few of our favorite apps that we use frequently to beautify our photos.
Hudson, Valencia, Hefe…if you want saturated hues and a variety of tones and highlights, consider popping your photo into one Instagram’s filters. We love how simple it is to enhance your photo’s appearance with just a couple of taps on their filter wheel. Don’t forget to use the blur tool to create some fun depth of field.
Ever wonder how people add that hint of blur to their photos in the corners or along the sides? We love using Picfx when we’re adding ‘Bokeh’ to our photos. These clusters of background lights come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors - we love them all! This filter is a
quick and simple way to make your photos pop. Picfx also has a large library of color filters that can be subtly adjusted with the slider on the right hand side of the frame as well as layered with multiple filter effects.
We’ve all been there: there are multiple photos that you want to share but you’ve only got 4 frames on Poshmark to utilize. Enter PicFrame. Choose from a multitude of ratios to adjust the frames and then choose what type of frame you’d like to use for your photos (you can add up to 9). This is a great app to use when you have many angles you’d like to highlight for your listing.
Enjoy! Can’t wait to continue to see your gorgeous covershots and listings!
We hope you have a fashionable and festive break, whether you are traveling to see family, gathering with friends, or just taking some time for yourself! And, as always, we’ll be sure to see you in the app!
xo, The Poshmark Team
