I’ve long been jealous of my US blogger friends because of their access to Poshmark. Well, it’s finally come to Canada and I am obsessed. I’ve been using the app for a few months now and I’ve added some great second hand pieces to my closet. Today I’m sharing my Poshmark shopping tips and tricks! I hope you find this post useful.
1. Follow the brands you love
Poshmark allows you to follow about 50 brands. Plug in your favourites and the app will alert you of new listings in your feed. The brands I follow include Aritzia, Sézane, and Everlane.
2. Set your size
Poshmark allows you to filter your searches by your size which is so useful. I have my shoe size and clothing sizes saved and it makes browsing so much easier.
3. Check the photos thoroughly
Make sure you examine the photos of the item carefully so you know what you are getting. If there are any flaws don’t be afraid to ask the seller for more information. Also, if the seller has only used stock photos from the website make sure to ask for photos of the actual item you will be receiving. If the seller says no, it’s a pass!
4. Ask lots of questions
Make sure to get as much detail as you can including measurements, fabric content, and even why the seller is parting with the item.
5. Hit that heart button
You can use the like button to bookmark items and come back to them at your leisure. It’s also a quick way to save items in a search that you might be interested in.
6. Make offers
Don’t be afraid to hit the make an offer button. Some sellers set firm prices but I’ve found most people to be somewhat flexible.
I’ve also made a number of sales on the app. Check out my closet here. Let me know if you’d be interested in a post with my selling tips!
I hope you found this helpful and will use a couple of my tips and tricks for shopping on Poshmark! Are there any tips I’ve missed?
