First of all, let’s find out what Poshmark is and what it does. After plenty of research (drum roll)…Poshmark is a mobile clothing marketplace where you can buy and sell fashionable pieces that come right out of your closet!



You literally get to shop someone else’s closet and allow for others to shop in yours without leaving your home. Poshmark allows its users to connect directly with each other, giving each user the ability to have hands-on management with each individual purchase. There are often “parties” where a user can share their clothing to receive more views and possible chances of a sale as well as honing in their chances of finding that perfect piece that they may have been looking for.
For all of those pieces that are too small, too big (basically everything you bought on a whim but didn’t try on before you left the store), but that are REALLY cute, this is the place to sell them. We know they’re in the back of your closet somewhere and only God knows where the receipt is, if you haven’t already exceeded the refund policy time. Instead of going back to the store and trying to negotiate with the cashier on why you believe you should be able to still return this item, you can just sell it on Poshmark.
Boy, do I wish this thing was around in high school, as I would have been selling all of my clothes just to make some extra money. Instead of swapping clothes with friends, I would have been uploading and shipping my little heart out just to fill my bank account.  Poshmark is a great way to earn an extra side income, and I am all about additional and multiple streams of income. They do take 20% from each sale, but as we all know with business, they have to make their money somewhere. I think that 20% is a fair, if not low cost to the user, because of what Poshmark is offering you. It is offering an online and mobile presence that allows you to sell and buy all from the confines of your own home. Who else does that?!?
  1.    1.Find some clothing, shoes, and accessories in your closet that you would like to sell. Make sure that they’re in good condition and are things that someone else would like to wear.
  2.  2. This part is important, as it is your main way to market your item.Upload clear pictures, preferably in front of a solid color background, with ample lighting. Poshmark will then prompt you to add a description and to select a brand, category, and size for the item. You get to choose what price you would like to list the item for and also to add how new the item is (new with tags, new without tags, used etc.)
  3.    3. SHOP! Don’t forget to find incredible deals on Poshmark at just a fraction of the actual retail price.
Below are some additional Pros and Cons to Poshmark:
CONS
-You may receive “low-ball” offers where buyers offer to buy the product for way less than you have listed, and often way less than what the product is worth
-You may have to reject offers, because the final negotiated price is just too low for you to accept
-As with anything online, there are people who are always looking to deceive others for their own selfish purposes
PROS
-After making a sale, Poshmark gives you a FREE print-out shipping label
-Secure payment transfers
-An optional authentication service for high-end goods
-A HUGE range of clothing price-wise
-An app for easy mobile selling and shopping
