We are so excited to have launched Poshmark on Android and want to share with our community some of our favorite Android apps to use when creating those glamorous Covershots. With so many to choose from, we chose our top three for ease of usability and variety. Can’t wait to see what gorgeous cover shots our Poshers are creating!
1. PhotoGrid – Free
A must-have app, PhotoGrid allows you to create collages with your photos. Modify the layout, play with the ratio of the frames, add text and clip art – this app does it all! Fun little tip – you can shake your device and the app will change the layout for you, if you can’t decide.
2. LINE camera – Free
LINE camera is another fantastic app that gives you the flexibility to play around with collage options. You can also select from a variety of filters, including ones that have the fun bokeh effect. Tap the filter to see other options for that style; in our example we chose the Party filter. Don’t forget you can also play with the intensity to make your filter full effect or faded!
3. Phonto – Free
We know every now and then you want to add a pop of text in a fun font to add dimension to your cover shot. Vary the font, the pt. size, even the color with this great app for typefaces. Tilt words to match the direction of an item in your photo and play with the location of the text. The options are pretty much endless!
As you may know, Poshmark uses Priority Mail shipping labels for all Poshmark orders. But what boxes can you use to ship? We’re here to clear that up for you!
Priority Mail Boxes
USPS offers a line of FREE boxes and envelopes for Priority Mail customers. This packaging can be picked up at many Post Offices, but keep in mind that at some locations they may be kept behind the counter so you’ll have to ask for them. Don’t have time to go to the post office? No sweat! You can order supplies for free on USPS.com or on their free mobile app.
Your Own Packaging
If you have your own boxes or padded envelopes lying around, you are, of course, welcome to use them to ship your sales. We do caution that you are careful to cover or remove any old shipping labels, barcodes or addresses so that your package is properly delivered.
What Not to Use
USPS offers a variety of free packages for it’s different mail services. If you are using the boxes they provide, be sure you are not shipping in the boxes that are labeled ‘Express,’ ‘Flat Rate,’ or ‘Regional Rate’ as they will causes delivery delays and/or additional shipping fees.
As always, if you have questions about shipping or anything else, please feel free to reach out to our support team. We’re happy to help!
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!
