Don’t be sad that the weekend is over because there is still fun to be had this week. Our latest Posh Party line-up is packed with amazing finds from fashion influencers Kathleen, Talia, Ashley and Katie, and of course from our lovely community hosts.
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”:
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.
Attention, bloggers! We’re thrilled to let you know that we have launched our highly-anticipated closet widgets - woohoo! This customizable, real-time tool is the perfect way to encourage your blog readers, fans, and followers to shop your closet directly from your blog or website at any time, 24/7. The widgets are clean and sleek, blending in well within the sidebars across a variety of blog layouts and formats.
Creating and adding the widget to your blog takes just a few minutes. Simply go to: http://poshmark.com/widget/generator (you’ll need to be signed in to your account).
Bonus: We’ve added a “My Favorite Closets” section on the widget so you can add up to five of your favorite Poshmark closets (using their username). They’ll receive an email letting them know you’re showing them Posh Love on your blog!
So what are you waiting for? Create your widget now and monetize your closet even more!
How will shipping change for sellers on Poshmark? We teamed up with the USPS to create an exclusive label just for Poshmark sellers. The new PoshPost label covers shipping of any type of fashion - a handbag, jewelry, boots or even an entire outfit - up to 5 pounds (up from the current 2 pound limit). This new label will apply to all orders purchased after 12:00 a.m. PT on March 20.
Over 99.5% of orders shipped by Poshmark sellers are 5 pounds or less, so sellers will almost never have to worry about upgrading your shipping label. In the rare event a seller needs to ship a very heavy order that’s 6 pounds or more, the label upgrade fee will be as shown in the table below.
What is the new shipping rate for buyers? Starting 12:00 a.m. PT on March 20, 2014, the shipping rate for buyers will be $4.99 for any order on Poshmark, regardless of price. All orders will continue to be shipped with fast USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail.
Why are you making these shipping changes? Late last year, we conducted a large research study and ran several tests to determine how we could attract more buyers and help more women sell more items from their closets. The results overwhelmingly pointed to one change: lower-priced shipping. As a result, we have decided to permanently offer our buyers a low $4.99 shipping rate for any order on Poshmark - no matter what the listing price.
We are also continually working hard to make listing and selling items in a woman’s closet easier. Over the last several months, we worked closely with the USPS to create an exclusive label just for Poshmark sellers. The new PoshPost label covers shipping of any type of fashion - a handbag, jewelry, boots or even an entire outfit - up to 5 pounds (up from the current 2 pound limit). Over 99.5% of orders shipped by Poshmark sellers are 5 pounds or less, so sellers will almost never have to worry about upgrading their shipping label.
When will these shipping changes go into effect? The $4.99 buyer shipping rate and the new PoshPost label pre-paid for packages up to 5 pounds will be rolled out at 12:00 a.m. PT on March 20, 2014. These changes will apply to any order purchased after this time.
What is the new commission for selling on Poshmark? Starting 12:00 a.m. PT, March 20, 2014, the Poshmark commission for sales under $15 will be single flat rate of $2.95. You keep the rest.
For orders of $15 or more, the commission remains the same - Poshmark takes 20% as commission and you keep 80% of your sale.
Why are you changing the commission for selling on Poshmark? We are making this commission change so we can support lower-priced buyer shipping rates for all orders and provide a more robust label to simplify shipping for our sellers.
When will this new commission go into effect? The new commission will go into effect for all orders sold after 12:00 a.m. PT on March 20, 2014.
Will the new commission apply to old orders? No. The new commission will only apply for orders purchased after 12:00 a.m. PT on March 20, 2014.
What is the minimum Listing Price? Starting March 20, 2014, listings must have a listing price of $3 or higher to be available for purchase. Listings with a $0, $1 or $2 listing price will automatically be set to “Not For Sale” listing status and won’t have a “Buy Now” button.
Why can’t I sell $0, $1 or $2 listings? Starting March 20, 2014, the Poshmark commission for sales under $15 will be $2.95. As a result, the listing price needs to be $3 or more for any listing to be available for sale.
What will happen to $0, $1 and $2 listings in my closet? On March 20, 2014, unsold listings in your closet with a $0, $1 or $2 listing price will automatically be set to “Not For Sale” listing status and will no longer have a “Buy Now” button. Users will continue to be able to see, like, share and comment on these listings, but won’t be able to purchase them. To make one of these listings available for purchase, click the “Edit” icon on the listing details page. Select “Edit Listing Details” and change the price to $3 or more. Go back to the “Edit” icon and select “Mark as Available.”
To make this transition as easy as possible, we’ve created a special page in your Poshmark app with links to all $0, $1 or $2 listings in your closet. Go to the Poshmark Support Center, then click on “Manage My $0 - $2 Listings.”
Note: you will need to upgrade your app to the latest version to access this page.
Not only is Poshmark a community of fashion friends who love buying and selling their closets - we also hope that we’re making an impact in Silicon Valley as an e-commerce app!

Poshmark’s Founder and CEO, Manish Chandra, was invited to be a keynote speaker at the European Ecommerce Conference in Madrid, Spain this week, along with companies such as YouTube, Badgeville, Hotel Tonight, Etsy, and more. This amazing opportunity marked a first for Poshmark: first time speaking about the company and our industry outside of the U.S.!
Manish talked about building a successful community, gave advice on innovating around the mobile platform, and shared some of his personal challenges when launching Poshmark. Some of our favorite takeaways from Manish’s presentation:
Thank you to adigital (Asociación Española de la Economía Digital) for inviting Manish to speak and another HUGE thank you to those who attended his keynote presentation (in person or through the live stream). We loved Tweeting with you and listening to your great questions!
Hasta la próxima vez, España! :)
