With our latest release of the app, we introduced two new tools to empower sellers on Poshmark take even more control of their closets, merchandise, and interactions with potential buyers: “My Closet Stats” and “Not for Sale” listing status.

1. “My Closet Stats”: My Closet stats gives you important information about your closet, your sales history, and the experience you are delivering to your buyers. This page and the information included on it is private (for your eyes only!) and meant to help you continue to succeed. To get to your closet stats, click on your profile tab at the bottom right of the app > click on “My Closet Stats.”

We’d love to hear your feedback on this tool, Posh sellers! Please click through to this PM Editor listing and let us know what other information about your closet you’d find helpful for selling more on Poshmark.

Examples of the type of information you’ll find in “My Closet Stats”:

  • Available listings: The total number of unsold listings available for sale in your closet. Closets with a great number of “Available Listings” are more likely to sell an item to a buyer (we recommend having at least 10 available listings in your closet).
  • Self-Shares: The total number of times you have shared a listing from your closet in the last 30 days. Sharing your listings to your followers and to parties will increase the number of potential buyers viewing the listing and your closet.
  • Listings Sold: The total number of listings you have sold in your closet. (Special kudos if you’re one of the top 10% sellers on Poshmark - keep it up!).
  • Total Earned: The total amount of money you have made through your sold listings on Poshmark, less Poshmark fees.
  • Days to Ship: The average time you have thus far taken to ship your orders to buyers. We calculate the time between when the order was placed and when your package was accepted by the US Postal Service. The faster you ship an order to a buyer, the faster she can start enjoying her purchase! If you delay shipping an order to a buyer, you may harm her purchase experience and reduce the chance she shops your closet again.

2. “Not for Sale” Listings: You now have a clear way to tell buyers which listings are no longer available in your closet. This includes items sold in bundles, reserved listings, notes, or purchases that you just want to share with other Poshers (#PoshFinds!). Listings that are marked “Not for Sale” don’t have a blue “Buy Now” button, but others will still be able to see, like, share, and comment on them.

To mark a listing as “Not for Sale”: click the “Edit” icon on the listing details page > select “Mark as Not for Sale.”

To make one of these listings available for purchase: click the “Edit” icon on the listing details page > select “Mark as Available.”

Note: Poshmark’s minimum listing price is $3. Listings with a $0, $1, or $2 listing price are automatically set to “Not for Sale” listing status and won’t have a “Buy Now” button. For more info, please check out our FAQs here.

Here are five tips that will help get your listings marked with a red SOLD banner:

Tip #1: Style Your Covershot.
Your Covershot is the very first photo of your listing and remember, first impressions count! Make sure your Covershot is well-lit and clear. Also, wear your item and style it your way. Listings with Covershots like these tend to sell much faster!
See additional tips on taking a great Covershot.

Tip #2: Describe Your Items Accurately.
Take time to accurately describe the item you are listing. Include info such as the condition the item is in, if it runs true to size, and tips on what to pair it with. Answering your potential buyers’ questions up front will help them decide to hit that “Buy” button just a bit faster.

Tip #3: Attend Posh Parties.
Posh Parties are shopping events in the app where hundreds of thousands of users log in at the same time to shop and share listings. Build an audience by sharing your listings at a Party.

Tip #4: Be Responsive.
When someone posts a question about your listing, respond promptly. If you wait too long, your potential buyer could lose interest. Remember, your newsfeed is your friend!


Tip #5: Engage with Others.
Be active in the Poshmark community. Find others with the same shoe size and follow them.  Share listings that you think are fantastic. Trust us when we say that the love you help spread will get returned…and could result in a sale!

Happy Poshmarking!

Step 1:  List Your Item.

Start by finding an item in your closet that you love but just don’t wear anymore. For example, do you have….

  • A dress you wore to a wedding once?
  • A skirt that still has tags on it?
  • Jewelry from an ex that just needs to go?
  • Killer heels that were always a tad too small?

Then, list them for sale on Poshmark! It’s easy and free.

Step 2: Ship Your Item.

Once your item sells, let EasyShip do the hard work. We send you a pre-paid pre-addressed shipping label. All you have to do is print it out, package up the item, and drop it off at the corner mailbox (if it fits) or at the nearest US Post Office. No stamps, no hassle!

Step 3: Earn Cash.

You can withdraw your earnings from Poshmark anytime…for free! Deposit your money directly into your checking account, request a check, or use the cash to purchase directly on Poshmark. You choose.

So here’s how our fees work: When you make a sale, we will deduct a 20% commission fee from your earnings. This means that you keep 80% of the sale price as your earnings.

Here’s what you get in return: We handle the financial transaction for you (including paying all those pesky credit card fees), provide you with a pre-paid pre-addressed shipping label, and will serve as your customer support team for your sale.

Once you see how simple and easy selling is on Poshmark, you will fall in love with your closet…again. Sell what you have in your closet so you can shop for what you REALLY love today.

Happy Poshmarking!
