Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about “Poshmark” and whether or not it’s a legit place to sell and buy things such as shoes, clothes, makeup, etc. I have a Pinterest account and thats where I first started to see posts linking to an item being sold on Poshmark. I was never too curious in the site until after I did some major closet and vanity cleaning. I came a cross SO much stuff that I had no use for, a lot of it being things that still had tags on them and others that have been used once or twice. I literally had 6 of those giant black garbage bags filled with clothes that I ended up donating but there were a few items that were in very good condition that I held onto and I thought “Well, I could try out that Poshmark site and see if I could sell some of this for some extra cash..” Being a full-time student it has been hard for me to work as much as I would like so money has been extremely tight lately which has made saving almost impossible so I hooped that this could turn into a sort of savings account for me.
I have had my account for about 2 months now and so far I have made $50! (Keep in mind my average item goes for $5). Now I am still an amateur at this so I’m still getting the hang of how to successfully sell on the site. From what I have learned so far is that the more active you are on the site, the more likely people will purchase from you. The more that I share my listings, share other people’s listings and comment on other people’s listings, the more traffic my page gets.
As for purchasing I have only bought one item from the site because like I said before I’m trying to save the money I earn, not spend it. I bought this gorgeous tan floppy hat with a rose gold chain that I am obsessed with. I recommend before purchasing from someone you check out their “love notes” and see if people have had good experiences buying from them. ALSO you can make offers! So if a price isn’t too appealing to you, try offering one that is! I have learned that most sales happen through offers. If no one is buying your item, offer a lower price to those who liked the post! All of my sales have happened that way.
If you have been wary of trying out Poshmark this is me saying, give it a chance! You might end up like me and be surprised!
Use my code: CARAWANSAW when you sign up and we will both get $5 after your first purchase. And while you’re here, please feel free to check out my Poshmark!
