So you want to start making money by selling, but not sure how to get started? I’ve been using Poshmark for about a year to sell gently worn items and sell new pieces from my own online boutique. Poshmark is an online platform where people can sell and buy clothes with ease. It was launched in 2011 and has developed to a community of more than 5 million sellers. In the United States, men and women are joining the craze of Poshmark to sell clothes online. Some of them are selling on Poshmark as a full-time job and are launching their own stores. Sellers are only required to upload photos of the items they are willing to sale.

How to start selling on Poshmark?

Poshmark works similarly to other online retail spaces. Users make a profile (or “closet”) and let the app know about your preferred clothing brands. Once you’ve created a Poshmark closet, collect the items you no longer use or wear anymore. Get ready to let go and sell! This can be clothes, shoes, handbags, jackets, and accessories, etc. Poshmark also has a new section called Poshmark Home Market.

Tips for selling on Poshmark

Here’s how to maximize your closet and make the most of your time on Poshmark.


  • Have awesome cover shots

Having awesome cover shots showing the complete item definitely helps you sell faster. If it is anything related to clothing, it will also help you to show to you or someone else who is wearing it. This is important because if you include images from all angles, buyers cannot say that the item was not as described.

  • Share items on a daily basis

Try to share some of your items at least once a day and be sure to share each item at least once every two or three days. This will make the items appear at top of searches and feeds

  • List your best items at the top of your closet

Put the best items at the top so that people see them first when they visit your closet. These are the listings most likely to be shared if people are going to reciprocate you sharing their listings!

  • Share listings of other people

It’s important to keep in mind that you only share items that you like or that fit your style. If people know what to expect from your closet, they will come back.

  • Consider it as a social platform

Sharing is one of the best ways to communicate on Poshmark, so you’ll need to spend at least a little time each day sharing and following each other’s lists. Most of the time, the other members will come back to the service and will also share their lists

  • Pack and ship quickly

Providing good client service is the key. You are responsible for packing as well as shipping the item quickly. In case you are unable to go to the post office the same day or the next day, be sure to contact the buyer.

VA’s know that it requires devotion and commitment to be successful. This is truly an experience through which you can earn as much as you are investing!

So What Are You Waiting For? Get Selling

I’m convinced that second-hand clothing is one of the most sustainable ways (not to mention fun) ways to consume fashion. As trends come and go (how do you feel about this 90’s resurgence), you can recycle looks and find vintage pieces that have more character than a newer garment.
