Have you ever wanted to make money and de-clutter your life
at the same time?
Recently I found an app that lets me do just that and it’s such an easy way to make money. If you’re anything like me, you’ve collected a ton of clothes in your closet. I don’t wear half the clothes I own and after traveling so much I’ve realized that I NEED to get rid of some things.
So, I downloaded Poshmark and little did I know, 3 months later, I have made over $400!
Keep in mind the $400 was earned with have barely any followers or listings. Now that I’m consistently gaining followers, getting more likes, comments, and shares on my posts, the money will just keep on coming.
All the things I love about Poshmark!
First off, you can post literally anything from your closet into your online store. On mine I have shoes, clothes, books, pillows, blankets, and so much more! You never know what people are going to search for.
When someone purchases an item from your shop, Poshmark sends you a pre-paid, filled out, packaging label. All you have to do is package the item and slap the label on!
Its insanely easy to post a listing. They require at least 1 picture that shows what you are selling but you can post more. When posting an item you have to decide on a title, typically something that will catch their attention. Then you write a little description about it.
After describing it, there are a few categories you have to fill out including, what type of item, size, brand, color, and if it is “new with tags”. Once your done describing the item, you then have to put the original price (how much YOU paid for it), and how much you are listing it for.
One thing I think is great about Poshmark is that they don’t try to trick you.
On everyone’s page, there is an “about” tab. In this tab you can see how long it typically takes them to ship an item, if they give a discount, and (my favorite part) it shows the reviews they’ve received from people. It shows the good and the bad, so if they sold an item that was all ripped, the buyer would typically leave a bad review. That review may help you decide if you want to buy from them or not.
Communication is a big part of Poshmark also. When I’m looking at a listing that I may be thinking about buying, I would typically comment on the picture and ask them certain questions like “is the size true to fit?”, “what is the length?” things that will help me get to know the item a little better.
With the good, comes the bad.
No app can be perfect, they have to make money as well as the sellers. The one thing I don’t like about Poshmark would be that they take a percentage of every sale AND they charge for shipping. I would prefer they only charge for shipping but the percentage they take out of the sale is so minimal that its still completely worth it.
There are always some bad people out there who are trying to scam you and make money, sadly there are some of those on Poshmark too. Luckily, they are a really supportive company so if you ever receive an item that isn’t at all what the listing said, you can just contact them via email, they will take care of it and most likely give you a refund.
Poshmark is the easiest way to make some extra cash!
