Mongo 2 - Poshmark is the BEST!
I truly love being a member of Poshmark. I have been a stay at home Mom since my son was born. He has Autism and it was necessary for me to not return to work, to be available for him. Itās impossible to work in retail management when you are only available school days. I was a store manager before that and I really missed working. Poshmark has given me the outlet I needed to keep working and making some money. It has helped with my depression. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and a work platform where I can create my own schedule and essentially work as much as I want to. I love that it is a community of people who help each other by sharing each others listings and offering help to those who need it. The parties are fun too. Really its a brilliant, successful strategy. So many people use it and there are so many new members every day. I never have to lower prices to move an item because there are new members every day and eventually the right buyer joins and finds it. I love that my customers are genuinely thrilled with their purchases. Making people happy while making some money and having some sense of a job/purpose is awesome! The best part is that you can do it from home, around your own schedule and it only costs money when you make a sale. I have met some amazing people here and I have zero bad experiences.
Sophie & mike - Great- some suggestions
I have been using Poshmark for several years now and have been very pleased for the most part. The few issues I have encountered have been met with overall good customer service.
I was pleased when they began to offer various shipping fees (4.99, 5.95, & 7.11), as I agree with what many others have said, that since the market for USED and AFFORDABLE clothing is the main focus of this app, a $7 shipping fee can often be the price or near the price of the item you are buying.
A suggestion would be to fix the categories people filter, shop, and create listings by. As an example, the womenās dresses category has numerous subcategories that are varying descriptors of a dress. Mini, maxi, one shoulder, long sleeve, strapless, et cetera. But what if you have a one shoulder maxi dress? Or a long sleeve mini dress? Which category do you select? I believe changing these categories to be more cohesive would make it much easier and less confusing for people to find what they are looking for.
For example, instead of all these random subcategories, perhaps all the subcategories could pertain to the same aspect of a dress. Like the subcategories are mini, midi, maxi. Or sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve.
I believe that could greatly improve how quickly and easily shoppers can find what they have in mind using the filter tools.
THIS IS HORRIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!! - Fantastic Customer Support
I have sold and bought now on Poshmark and the one thing they do incredibly well is their customer service. The response time is within the next day and they are so awesome in explaining and/or correcting problems. They have always corrected all the problems i have had and then some. Customer support is so important in an app like this where money and transactions are constantly involved. So kudos to the whole Poshmark team!
There are few things that would make the app better, nothing that would demote the 5 stars I think this app deserves. One would be to be able to pick the shipping weight. $7.11 flat shipping rate is a lot, especially when most of the buyers are buying single clothing items that do not cost the $7.11 to ship. It doesn't make much sense. And another thing would be to report users for manipulating tags. There are so many boutiques that add popular brand tags in their posts so when you search for that brand, all of that boutiques clothing is something you have to scroll through. Its fairly annoying, and its not right. These boutiques are taking away from us who are just trying to sell one thing at a time. The search feed becomes a mess from them. They shouldn't be able to spam every one of their posts with the tags.
Clairep143 - Great selling & buying platform
Iāve been a seller & buyer on Poshmark for about 2 years now. Iāve made many sales. Itās not my main source of income but I make lots of extra spending money! There are definitely some bad sellers out there as well as scamming buyers, but the ratio of good to bad is slim. Before purchasing, I always check for Love Notes (reviews), what their ship time avg is, and if theyāve been active recently. Iāve had nothing but good purchases from Doing so! Also if something ever goes wrong as far as not getting the right item or item is damaged, you can always open a case and return and/or get a refund. The one thing that ticks me off about posh is the amount of junk & replicas being sold when they are clearly either not allowed or illegal! And we as sellers/buyers are the ones who basically have to get them removed. I wish posh had more security and was able to instantly remove listings that are unallowed. This is a clothing/accessory/shoes/new, not swatched makeup platform ONLY. I wish they would do more to keep it so! Its also really frustrating when Iām trying to find something from a certain brand and there are so many items from a different brand mistagged for āexposureā. I could report them all, but that would take months! There are so many unallowed listings and rules being broken and they need to do something about it besides having us sort through them in our own time at no cost.
Amoureis - Better for buyers
I buy and sell, and itās def better for buyers than sellers. You can make offers and communicate easily with sellers. There are some great deals to be had. Just make sure you ask all your questions and request pics until youāre confident you want to buy since there are no returns (except when something has been blatantly misrepresented).
Selling, on the other hand, has downsides that are the flip side of the same coin. People make ridiculous lowball offers. For example, say Iāve used a $200 handbag just a few times but then for whatever reason need some cash. I list for $100 which is a fair price and very good deal (keeping in mind I wonāt be getting the full $100 anyway), and someone comes in offering $40. Itās just insulting and a waste of my time and I donāt even want to bother negotiating. This obv isnāt the app, but worth mentioning because itās part of the overall Poshmark experience. Iād say the vast majority of buyers behave like this. Out of every 25 transactions, probably only 1 is a straight up purchase at listed price. Plus, you have to put a LOT of work into keeping your items visible and be super active on the app.
But the worst part about selling is the 20% fee. Iāve ended up making $2 on an item before. The best part about selling is how the shipping label is just emailed to you so you can just pop the item into the drop box. Honestly not sure I would do this over again - Iād look into other apps for sure.
33129 - This app still needs work
This app still needs work. The notifications are so chaotic! There should be separate tabs for Offers Iāve made on other sellersā items vs. Offer made on items in my own closet. Same for Comments ā itās so hard to follow the comments I actually care about, and I often miss replies or questions specifically for me. At this point, I rarely sell on Posh anymore, as Mercari is just a better experience all around. I still maintain that Posh needs to figure out a lower shipping cost for lower-weight items such as most jewelry, perhaps with value tiers (eg Iād ship something precious at a higher cost than costume). I also really like the Promote feature on Mercari, where you can promote your listings by dropping their prices.
Just read the reviews. Iām not alone. Thereās almost no real customer service. I definitely spend way more than I make on Posh, but a recent selling experience combined with the disgustingly high shipping costs has me seriously reconsidering using this app in the future. Shipping costs should be tiered based on item. A pair of stud earrings should absolutely never cost $7.11. Itās stopped me from many purchases. Also their cut is way too high on lower-priced items. But ultimately itās the lack of seller protection or support that are finally driving me away. Buyers can cancel sales hours later for no real reason, and thatās just allowed with Posh. Nope!
Very flawed - Love, butā¦
I have a few suggestions. It would make life much easier if, when we make an offer to liters, we can see all of our previous offers on that item. When I try to make an offer to a liked on a particular item it says it wasnāt sent to any likers and that I need to lower the price. Usually i have to make several tries at lowering the price because I donāt remember what amount I previously offered. It shows you a history of your offers only after a successful offer goes through. I love the app aside from the 20% poshmark takes and I wish there were certain days or events where they could lower it to 10% for a specific time period. Also I wish they would make closet clear out less confusing. I still donāt know how it works. I donāt know if Iām supposed to make an offer to likers or just edit the item price to receive discounted shipping. I also wish it would show us the discounted shipping poshmark covers for closet clear out, or at least show a timer left to sell that item. Lastly I wish there were more incentives for parties. Iāve had a few items chosen for host picks but that never helps me. It feels like parties are just a place for sellers to list their items without the presence of many buyers. Maybe poshmark could offer discounted shipping on host pick items or some type of incentive.
Grace4allnow - My favorite platform to sell & buy
Iām 6 years a seller & a buyer. Iāve used 3 other platforms before but poshmark is my favorite by far. Although some may balk at the app seller fees I believe it is well priced for what the app does. Shipping is fixed tho that changes through special shipping deals so bundle when u & save! They continually improve the app & customer service is getting better with more staff. I like the social part of the app & meeting new ppl from all over the USA & Canada is quite fun. Millions use this app yet it doesnāt feel that way. Participating in daily parties, sharing your items & sharing others items - really makes this app stand out! No other app has this feature. In doing this we can & do empower each other to success. The other apps are all competition only & I personally prefer poshmark to buy esp now that new categories were added like the home & electronic market! So if u are looking for something more than just a storefront? Try it! as to shopping & to the ease of use? By far the best out there. Good job poshmark! šš The one thing Iād liked to see improve right now is to allow ppl to bundle items themselves & have the ship rate set for up to 5 lbs. I believe as a buyer & seller I would really love & use that feature! Still my fav app!
MarieSully44 - Amazing app, but one little flaw.
I sell on this app and I have over 100 listings. I love it so much and it has only been 1 and a half months and I have already sold 10 things! (Considering that these are all my unworn clothes or slightly used clothes that I was going to give away) it was very impressing. I have all 5 star reviews! But, the one thing is Poshmarks fee is pretty high. If you sell something for $10 you only get $7.05. Or, $100 you only get $80. So it is a 20% fee. I have found other apps that donāt have a fee like this app Vinted, but when I sell something it wants my Social Security number, so donāt get that app by the way. However another thing Vinted has us where you can chose how heavy what you are shipping will be, so you donāt have to pay 6.99 for shipping after your first purchase. I think Sellers should be able to chose the weight so buyers donāt have to pay so much! But other than those two minor improvements Poshmark could make I absolutely love the app and highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in buying, or selling on this app. It is completely secure and doesnāt ask for you social like that Fraud app Vinted. And has a buyer return policy, so if you donāt get what you were supposed to then you get your money back! Anyways, definitely get this app and check it out!
Chechel2 - A Great App in My Experience
I love this app! I know there are always Pros and Cons to every App that people can buy & sell off of, but thatās the userās choice to live with it or use another app. When you sign up for Poshmark, you know what the fees are and how much shipping will be. This isnāt a surprise or something you find out later on. I am a buyer and seller and have had no problems with the app or their Customer Service! I bought wholesale items from two different sellers that came damaged upon arrival and PM customer service has been great taking care of the problems. Poshmark is a great app to sell clothes you donāt wear anymore and donāt want to sell at a Yard Sale. Yes, you may get $2 for that item, but it beats $.25 at a Yard Sale! And you can always delete the listing and SELL them at a Yard Sale! As a seller, you decide what to sell items for. There will always be low ballers, but you can always deny the offer or counter the offer! I like the options you have as a buyer and seller. And if thereās something shady going on, you have the option to report it. I think Poshmark is great and getting better with every update. If you have a problem, let PM know. If you donāt like how they do things, thatās up to you to get another app to sell on. PM is a very good app and itās been a great experience overall. š
Pop culture icon - My Favorite App
I started buying on poshmark back in February and then started selling on poshmark in May of this year. I donāt get on Instagram or Pinterest nearly as much because Poshmark has become my favorite app to use. Itās more of a community than youād expect. Itās a positive place. If you have any issues you can contact posh support and they take care of you. And theyāre fair about it. Never in a million years did I think Iād love selling clothes or even meet some of the greatest people, on a clothing application. Itās indescribable. Itās so much fun. It really is. You have to try it to believe it. Itās not complicated. Itās not overwhelming. You sell something and poshmark emails you the shipping label. You print the label slap it on the box and drop it at the post office. Thatās it. How much easier can it get? And Iāve met more people on poshmark than instagram. Itās a positive environment. I remember getting my first package from my first purchase and inside the box there was a thank you note from the seller. Something that simple made the whole experience feel like I was getting something from a friend. Not a stranger. Iām not the clothing app kind of person. I never would have thought Iād enjoy something like this over my social media apps. But I do. I love it! Just try it. Youāll see what I mean.
Miss Kristin 1980 - Love love love this site!
Soooo I believe this is the only review Iāve ever written written, but itās well deserved. I have so many clothes, never have I gotten rid of anything in the past 30 years, some of it is 30 years old with the tags on it still! Itās too valuable to me to just donate to the Goodwill and when you do something like have a garage sale or go to a consignment shop, you usually only get a few bucks at the most for something. So with nowhere to go with it, Iāve hung onto it for years. One night while trying to figure out what to do with an old jacket that was valuable, I had the idea to put it on Poshmark. I had recently found out Poshmark was free to list items and this is why I went with Poshmark. I posted the item and in the morning it had sold for $100!! So then I did it again with two more items, and the next morning, those were sold also! So Iāve been doing it for two months now and Iāve made over $2000, I have hundreds of items on there and this is the perfect platform for my things! I wish I knew about this sooner but Iām just happy to have found it when I did! Iāve also rotated out my current wardrobe and Iāve gotten an entire new closet full of clothes! Where has Poshmark been all my life?!?!
Tystal1 - Unresolved issues with site
I was very happy with Poshmark until they recently updated it and now it loads very slow and is almost unusable. The problem is that the website now loads only eight items at a time. When you scroll down you get a message that says āloading moreā and after a few seconds another eight items will load. The slowness is frustrating enough, but the biggest problem is that after so many scrolls and āloading moreā messages the screen will go white and then throw you back at the top of your closet. You now have to start all over again. Itās very frustrating and has made browsing and sharing nearly impossible. I am now starting to list on other platforms because without being able to share my closet, my sales have dropped significantly. I wrote support multiple times. I normally received prewritten responses. I finally received a response from a developer and they temporarily changed things back, but after about a week it went back to the new system of loading only eight items a time. I loved Poshmark, but this system āupdateā has made it almost unusable from a sellers standpoint and has forced me to start listing on other sites. Very disappointed.
Melpomm - Disliking Everything Poshmark is Becoming
Selling here has made me hate reselling. I follow over 150k other Poshers, and all I see in my notifications tab now is āso-and-so is LIVEā. I donāt care about Lives, watched a few and bought one thingā¦it was ripped, no disclosure. But, thatās par, the last five items Iāve bought on this app have had undisclosed damage, probably because there are NO seller standards. You canāt even leave a visible negative to warn other buyers about shady sellers. And shady sellers? So many counterfeit items that Posh doesnāt even try to control, and so many prohibited items for sale that they donāt removeāthey have other (unqualified, unpaid) Poshmark users doing Poshmarkās job in reviewing the listings. Check out beauty and fashion forums: no one trusts buying designer items on Posh because the site allows fakes and replicas to stay listed and be sold! The customer service is all bot-run, so itās not even consistent with Poshās policies. Search results rarely, if ever, return what youāve searched and instead is a hodgepodge of extremely unrelated clothing, prohibited items, and large corporate stores that operate on, and cheapen the secondhand mission of, the Poshmark platform. I will be surprised if Naver takes the extreme risk and actually goes through with buying Posh, and once my over 900 items listed here are sold and/or purged, I refuse to give the condescending, shady owners of this app any more of the undeserved 20% fee.
#yvette - Amazing Women with Great taste and eager to help!
I joined Posh when the App first started, I thought great idea I was working Retail Management and found the discount and appeal to such a service just Devine! Unfortunately I was in a catastrophic roll over. Many surgeries later and lots of tears
And hiding from life I was deleting apps from my cell. Honestly finding Posh again opening the App I started crying such growth in the business so many people all the New information. I have been addicted admiring, shopping and making plans on how to really clean my closet So all my beautiful things can get some love. Thank you to all the Amazing full of ideas and such sweet women. May this App continue to inspire and give back to all of the wonderful ladies who strive so hard to be the best part of Great Women at every corner. Momās, CEOās, Wifeās,Business owners we ladies own this spectrum. Remember every piece that is put out for us was once a special item that was needed or admired or a must have for an occasion. A lot of times these very items carry great memories and even shoppers remorse. Not anymore those items will live on and actually give back a second time and we super women can keep dressing and doing all that makes us the best and know down deep there is a posher Waiting to share in your new purchase!!
NICEWARE - Fee and shipping rates are too high.
I initially thought Posh was a fun way to sell on line but the high fees and shipping rates are a problem. I have literally received 5 cents from selling items for $3. Once the item is below $10 then the minimum Posh fee of $2.95 becomes greater than 20%. Additionally, itās hardly worth paying $6.49 in shipping fees for inexpensive lightweight items. I think this structure needs to be revised. As a seller, I basically give away stuff; regardless of how low I price merchandise, the offers come in ridiculously (insultingly) lower where I often prefer not to sell. As a buyer, the items I like are marked up above what I see in retail (or they are not bargain shoppers and grossly over paid from the start). The constant promotions just encourage us to continue marking stuff down with no benefits. I donāt think the application is easy to use as I would like to be able to look at the sellers stats before a purchase to assure quality. I did appreciate the free authentication of items above $500. Additionally, sellers must stay alert to constant scammers. I donāt think I will continue to do this much longer.
There should be more avenues to provide feedback, like themes for Posh parties like: White Party Attire (all white items), Game Day (jerseys and sports paraphernalia), Plus size parties, High Cotton (only 100% cotton), etc. I think requiring the fabrication as listed on labels is important.
C51Creations - Love This App
I absolutely love this app! I have sold way more than I ever wouldāve sold on Etsy, offerup, or macari... there are also greater finds here. Itās like walking in to a high end thrift shop but brands like Coach and Louis Vuton are much more worth the purchase as the prices are Dropped! Only thing I would change is itās very hard to navigate between your offers/bundles/likes/shares/sales/follows... they said they changed that so it be easier in the last update however I donāt think it was made for an iPhone sxmax or an iPad 6 yet. Posh Ambassador program is cool I just wish we took on more responsibility with Posh after all we worked our tail off to get here we obviously love Posh! Also Customer Support is very much slow, as a seller with someone who already placed an order and the buyers shipping label wonāt print cause their address is wrong, and you keep loosing out on selling! I think there should be some sort of direct contact with Posh Support like a number or something for customer service... because the longer we wait to ship our shipping rating goes down, and that is just not cool! Other than that I absolutely am in love with Poshmark and highly recommend it for both people who love to shop and for people who love to sell! I highly recommend this app!!!
2020TTT2 - Win Win
Poshmark has been very user friendly. I have made enough sales to keep it interesting. My āgoalā is to sell items I have around that I think someone else would benefit from and put to good use, while I cash in on a few dollars. I have had most all good experiences with both buying & selling. My plan was to sell only and make a few dollars on items I may have donated. It is bothersome when people low ball offers. I have missed out on some offers because I truly feel the value of my item deserves more than their offer. Especially since Poshmark gets the first 20%! All in all I feel it is a āwin winā. My first feedback I gave on a purchase the seller responded not very nice. I thought I was being kindly helpful....oops I was wrong! Lesson learned. The site is easy to navigate and the poshers I have dealt with seem to be very upfront & honest. I have actually qualified to be an Ambassador; however I have not elected to do so. Not ready to commit to the requirements. I am so far satisfied with my experience to date. I have learned in life to take one day at a time! Thank you for the opportunity to list, sell & buy. I like how well the site functions so far. Thank you for allowing this feedback.
CoolMomsRock! - Yikes.
The app seems to work fine but I had to offload it because of business structure vs functionality. Hereās what I donāt like:
T huge majority of these sellers are ridiculous. Iāve had one trying to sell me the same already worn dress for $40 that I couldāve bought new, at Macyās, on clearance, for $40 plus tax which would be less than her used $40 dress with shipping. Second- the emails and alerts and reminders are overwhelming. I donāt really need or want a bazillion of them every day. If sellers were encouraged to price things to move, they wouldnāt be barraging buyers with repeated discount offers, clogging up my email and my phones CPU. Theyād actually sell items.
Poshmark could fix this problem by suggesting 75% off price originally paid (who pays full retail upfront anyway? No one.) and higher based on age of item and condition. Shoes arenāt posh if the heels are worn to nubs. Also- Iām not buying a damaged ādesignerā item at any discount once thereās a hole in it, it doesnāt matter what the label says. No one sees the label. They see the hole. Thatās what Goodwill is for. There are a ton of items that are listed but no longer for sale, and itās not obvious- Poshmark should have a time limit for sellers which would encourage them to price things to move and bonus-
not frustrate buyers looking at a coat that someone couldnāt sell last year for $50 so they donated it and never deleted the listing.
Mm079 - Steep commission, meh w/failed transactions
Poshmark is outstanding because of the inventory posted by the users/members. PM itself takes a hefty 20% Commission for the convenience of using its platform and its shipping/payment software. Thatās some pretty light lifting by PM and not a whole lot of risk for 20% (the $500+ authentication service is worth it). Also, if a transaction goes bad, especially something as simple as a canceled sale, it takes Poshmark two full business days to return the funds... that are simply sitting in Poshmarkās accounts. If a buyer used redeemable funds (also sitting in Poshmarkās accounts), which were deducted from her/his available balance immediately at the time of the sale, a canceled sale (with no merchandise shipped) should result in immediate replenishment of those redeemable funds. The two day delay, especially in that scenario, makes no sense and probably doesnāt even benefit PM a whole lot because they hold the funds regardless of whether they are in āescrowā waiting for the sale to be completed or are assigned to an individual āredeemable fundsā balance, earning whatever (overnight interest, etc.) they do on the āfloat.ā Nevertheless, this is still the best option for finding fantastic, comprehensive, inventory and being able to negotiate price with the actual seller, so Iām in it until someone improves on the process or offers a more economical option for the users.
Sweetcheeks08 - I had such high hopes
Update: I appreciate the response from Poshmark at least I know they are listening. Iāve struggled to turn over inventory but I do understand people arenāt spending a lot right now 1. Itās summer 2. the price of everything is so high = less fun spending. I hope as the year progresses we see more communication from Poshmark and help as we navigate the changes they made. Thank you for the response.
So I feel like I definitely missed Poshmarks hay day I had heard such great things about Poshmark so I signed on, but timing is everything, I signed up in April of this year 2022 and I feel like Iām watching what was a great community and place to resale dry up due to there own choices and the current state of affairs. I see all the big successful sellers vent how horrible the changes have been I have struggled to get my closet off the ground. I have white backgrounds thoroughly filled in descriptions nwt items on trend items killer brands. Iāve done the work and research and it seems to be a dying platform. I just wish I could of experienced Poshmark pre-changes and pre 2022. I have started to focus more on eBay, Mercari and looking for some other places too. Iāve also witnessed how disconnected the owners of Poshmark are from there users. Little communication or explanation or help to help us figure out how to figure out the new changes.
Brizle22 - Was scammed, poshmark refusing to help provide refund!
I ordered a highchair from Sharonmeine85. It was a new account, and only had the one listing. My item shipped, I was provided a tracking number, and the item said it had been delivered yesterday, November 12th in or at my mailbox. I found that strange as my mailbox is on the road, why would someone leave a highchair in a big box on the road, and it wouldnāt have fit into a mailbox. I thought maybe the post office delivered it to the wrong house, so I called the local post office, and they confirmed that the tracking number provided to me did not match the description of a new high chair in the original box, that the item didnāt even have my mailing info on it, that it was in a small bag and under 5lbs. Iāve been emailing poshmark to let them know whatās happened and they keep telling me that the item says it was delivered to me without even reading or understanding what I am telling them. This entire situation has been a nightmare! I am out $168 because Iāve been scammed and they refuse to help! I would not recommend anyone to use this site because if you have an issue they do not stand by their word and have payment protection to help in cases like this! Now I have to reach out to the post office to get a statement from them, and file a report with my local police office, and then dispute with my bank to have charges reversed as no one here will help me!! I would not recommend buying from here!
Kjcgirl1 - Poshmark is great place to sell and buy clothing love!
Iāve been selling and buying on this platform for about a year and half andItās a great way to minimize unwanted clothing items and to purchase new or like new items and give them a new life at a great price too! Although shipping is a flat rate shipping you can offer reduce shipping it may be much for one item but the good thing is you can ship up to 5 pounds with one shipping label which is priority shipping as well and the person gets her item usually within 2 to 3 days and you get paid quicker which is a really good deal and still itās cheaper than purchasing shipping on your own at the post office I saw another apps but Iāve sold the most this past year on Poshmark Iām trying to download size all of my items and this is helping me and helping me earn extra money to pay off bills at same time!Customer service is excellent they respond back right away even though itās only through email Iāve never had a problem where they didnāt answer right away so if youāre thinking about clearing out your closet I want to earn some extra money while you do it download the Poshmark app do you wonāt be sorry you did and itās fun too š¤šø
Caviarcustodian - Great app for selling and buying
From selling part time to funding out of production items when they wear out or rare pieces across many brands, poshmark is excellent. Its seller fee rate of 20% is not ideal, but they more than make up for it with prompt and friendly albeit extremely helpful customer service and all expenses covered shipping conventions for sellers in most circumstances. Most if any problems will be settled promptly with a solution that favors both parties to any extant possible. There are many options when it comes to selling online, but posgmark makes it easy, simple, and virtually worry free compared to other platforms. Their no returns based on size policy is a huge stress reducer for selling to finicky buyers. 3 years string and the sales have been steady and plentiful. Put in the work with quality items and you won't be regretful. As a buyer, there are many options for returns if an item is not as described, and payment is held in limbo until you report the item fits its description within 3 days, or your money back. If you have any doubts about sizing, just ask for measurements. If a seller can't provide, they probably aren't worth your time anyway. Buy, sell, this app is a reliable source! i
Me.268 - I'm addicted!
I had a ton of clothes just sitting in my closet. I gave lots away and still had three closets full. A friend told me about POSHMARK a year ago and I just never followed up. I was going to have a yard sale, but so many of my clothes still had tags and I wouldn't get 2.00 for them, so she happened to mention POSH again and I downloaded the app on August 30 and began posting. It's so easy to use. Very user friendly. There are no hidden "fees", it actually tells you what your take will be as you list it. I do think 20% is a bit high, but they do process the payments, send the shipping labels etc... there's not much the user has to do but share, share, share. It can be a little overwhelming at first on all the sharing and getting followers, but it's also very addictive.
I also think the shipping is a bit high for some items as well, but I also get that for priority shipping, it's a certain amount. So pros and cons to everything, but they seem to be listening and making it better for everyone. I did have the app crash a few times but other than that, I'd totally recommend it, if you want to spend the time sharing your items so that they can be seen by literally hundreds of thousands of people. It's your own boutique!
Jbick2684 - Poshmark protects buyers and doesnāt care about sellers
Iāve bought a couple of things off Poshmark and had good experiences, especially in cases where an item was listed as the wrong size and I requested to return. However, as a seller, I would not recommend Poshmark. As others have said, the margins are very slim for used items due to Poshmark fees, high shipping rates ($7??), and low balling buyers. I mean itās aggravating to list something for less than 50% of what it cost, it still has tags, and have 15 people negotiate a starting point at maybe 15% of the cost. There should almost be a minimum offer based on the list price of the item so that people donāt waste their time. Thereās also not a great way to communicate with people outside of using the comments on a listing. There should be a forum for discussion so you can easily say āhey Iām on vacation and will ship when I returnā rather than hoping theyāll see it in the comments on the listing. And lastly, my main point of reviewing, Poshmark doesnāt protect sellers. I sold boots and listed the price as a US 7.5. The manufacturers are Australian so the boots had the AU size on them. The buyer complained saying it was the wrong size when it was not, it was just on a different scale and not only did Poshmark refund the buyer, they also LET THEM KEEP THE BOOTS TO RESELL. Like how messed up is that?? Not only was the buyer wrong, but Poshmark rewarded them for it. Iāll be selling via Instagram from now on.
Kathrine27 - Poshmark
Great place to sell, buy and meet new people from all over, I just bought a new home other wise my closet would be 10 times larger, Once I am finished with my move thatās when my closet will become a lot more items on My Poshmark closet, if fact at my new home I have 1 of my bedrooms I am turning into my Poshmark Room only, I will also have a personal model so I can sell my clothes a lot faster, people like to see the clothes on a person, much better than taking a photo on a hanger or lying on a bed, ect. I have turned Poshmark onto many friends, family, health aids, one of my friends is just starting her poshmark and with her Dad being a Multi millionaire she will have some beautiful clothing, boots, shoes, ect. even people I meet in stores,I tell them about Poshmark I have been in customer service and sales for over 38 yrs. I have even helped people on Poshmark sell there clothing, I also share every morning other posh people items, this one lady is looking for a specific Jacket I told her I would help her find one, POSHMARK will become one of the Largest App. In the U.S within 1-2 more years, if you think Poshmark is large now just wait and see, If only I could buy some STOCK in Poshmark I would. Yours truly Kathrine Gould
GG245777543236 - Thankful, but not like it used to be
I have found the posh community and customer service for the most part to be exceptional. Posh has been a good side gig with the added benefit of cleaning and decluttering my closets and I made anywhere from $300-$750 per month for the first year. However in years 2-3 posh raised its commission and ship rates twice. So now itās hard to offer a good deal without basically giving stuff away. If you go under $10 on anything and count poshās 20% commission plus a (usually expected since itās almost $8) ship discount you are making only a buck or two. There are also a lot of people who think you should be thrilled to sell them a Gucci handbag for $15. Iāve literally received offers that ridiculous. And people who think you should post 19 extra pictures and 10 measurements on an item listed for 9 that they will offer you $5 on after you go back and do all of that. Finally, Posh is an app that expects you put in a LOT of time and effort to make any return. Not only with your own closet but others too. Engage engage and engage some more. So when I was making an average of $500 a month that was worth it but under $100, not so much. I started a different app last week that doesnāt take as much commission or require as much engagement and I have already made $300 there... in one week... So not feeling as great about Poshmark lately
Geena0921 - Great App for grabbing deals!
I love this app I just wish there was better customer service...I donāt understand why there is no phone number to cal to speak directly to a human. You have to email only and await a reply. Also you cannot message sellers directly regarding an order you can only message them by commenting on their items or one you bought which means that the message can get lost in their feed and not received on time or possibly ever. And I think that giving buyers 3 whole days to decide is a long time to allow them to then return the item. I personally take photos as Iām packing, but I donāt know thereās any seller protection. I have to be honest here, I do think their selling fee is extremely high and do believe itās higher than a lot of others. Plus they set your discounts you can offer and Iām unsure what their formula is exactly, but often times it seems too low. I guess maybe the shipping fee is good for some but I ship a lot of smaller items and it seems a lot of money with only a small amount of insurance and I cannot purchase further insurance myself. But there are lots of eager buyers on this app so if you want to sell to eager people at a serious discount this is the app for you!
Mng8986 - Welcome to high school, Poshmark academy of wanna be mean girls
I started on poshmark about 8 months ago, it was fun at first. I use many resale apps. And poshmark is the only app that allows its users to be closed circles, trashing each other sabotaging each other. Most resale apps, donāt even allow as much as a cuss word, much less allow another user to create a listing with all their personal information and photos of their children. Most apps have programs or real people who detect these problems and nip them in the bud, not Poshmark they make you wait 3 days, then they ask for a direct to the listing before they take it down. Also you ever felt unsafe about your home address being on the label you should, the user harrassing me. Tried to send the police to my home! This whole experience has been a nightmare Poshmark has let this user repeatedly invade my privacy. Kept me from making sales, and even after I sent Poshmark all the evidence they still have done nothing this user even posted gloating about the police reports. I did nothing to provoke this attack. And I have heard of similar stories of other users who are Poshmark ambassadors from hell! Preying on new users. What if this user had been successful or even worse made up some crazy scenario to get the police to come to my home. Trigger happy police all over what? A user with too much time on their hands? I am leaving this app, Poshmark provides no protection for its users. Poshmark where the pettiness is real
Samloveslife - HIGHLY RECOMMEND POSHMARK!!!!
Hi there! Here is my two cents! I LšVE this app
because it is so much MORE than an app! I joined the Poshmark Community just three short months ago, to do as so many othersā are doing here: making Closet space, and passing on items than no longer fit/Never did fitš¤/ or that you simply do not wear any longer. Poshmark is great for that! Not an auction but rather a truly online store. I have made several purchases along the way, all of which I am very pleased with. And I have made a good deal of money selling my own personal items that Iāve never worn. I am mostly a shoe/Jewelry-obsessed kinda girl, so itās been very easy to sell. You get a pre-paid postage label, SUPER-Convenient! I get my supplies online as well, I only pay for my actual āpresentationā which for me is a handwritten Thank You, and various sizes of colorful pouches that I Package my jewelry items in. I also would like to mention that if you seek and find a āShareā Buddy, it becomes even easier. I have one remarkable Sharer, who always helps me at Every Party! And I have several more Share Buddies that do the same. It is truly a community of Buyers, Sellers, and Friends! Try it for your self!!! Thanks!
SabineH43275829271629426528 - App use
My review is more specifically for the āuser-friendlinessā of the app or rather the lack thereof. Itās disappointing that you cannot edit, delete comments etc. cannot delete bundles (because I get especially annoyed when sellers do this). Itās annoying that there is so much junk mail via āpartiesā that I have NO INTEREST IN! Ie i donāt have kids or know anyone with any. No kid parties please. Moreover, these parties donāt filter for your size so prepare for disappointment when you fall in love with something that doesnāt fit. The sad part is I put so much effort into ignoring these parties that I miss the few I would actually be interested in. Itās also annoying to keep getting notifications when you open the app and on notification page that I cannot customize and the so-called āwe found xyz items youāll loveā yeahāthose do not even filter for your size aside from the fact you canāt turn this notification off either. Iām using Poshmark less and less. The prices are often too high, and itās because Poshmark takes out too much from the sale. I feel bad for those trying to sell on it. I havenāt been able to sell a single item. Itās because I have items posted that I keep notifications on. Going to delete my items for sale and turn off notifications. Maybe delete app. Itās just not worth it. Half the items I bought werenāt as I expected and I regret buying them.
ItsAmbers - Too many replicas and Posh isnāt doing enough
Iām a Posh Ambassador, have been selling (and buying) since 2013. Iāve made about $20k in the last year. However, itās becoming more and more difficult because of the HUGE overwhelming influx of replica sellers. I try to flag listings and sellers as counterfeit but there are so many after 2 hours I havenāt even made a dent. And they donāt get removed right away (sometimes at all) so I donāt get it. I have emailed customer service and shared my frustrations as well as some tips they could use to actually address it, but to no avail. I may need to switch platforms soon b/c how can I sell a Louis Vuitton authentic handbag for $2k (a discount from $5k) when replicas are being sold for $200??? Itās very unfortunate because buyers are getting scammed, sellers are facing unfair competition from fake items, and Google ads even banned Poshmark for a while for āthe excessive amount of counterfeit products that were being sold on their platform.ā
Posh needs to step it up. If a brand new seller has a user name that is a jumble of letters and words that donāt make sense, a missing profile pic or a stock pic, and they post a luxury item for less than $500 (to avoid Posh Authentication), then a Posh employee or automated bot needs to give that listing and seller a 2nd review- minimum!
108158 - Ehh
I always thought they had decent customer service until recently. They blatantly let a customer basically scam me although all the evidence was there that the customer was in the wrong. They just didnāt care at all. I wish sellers were protected as much as buyers but Iāve noticed that (on nearly every selling platform) theyāll always favor the buyer. I work hard to be a great seller and follow Poshmarkās guidelines, trusting that iāll be protected as long as I do the right thing. Well unfortunately thatās not the case. The customer ruined my jacket, opened a return for a bogus reason, and was able to return the jacket and get their money back. Which wouldnāt be so bad if they didnt return the jacket completely ruined. I showed pictures and proof, but that wasnt good enough. So they got their money back, Poshmark ignored the blatant evidence and decided to side with the shady customer who has hardly bought anything before, over the trustworthy seller who has been bringing Poshmark money for years with almost all 5 star ratings. This incident showed me that Poshmark, just like Ebay and all the others, will almost always favor the buyer, whether theyāre right or wrong. This is probably the thing I hate most about selling, and the reason I want to quit selling thru Poshmark overall. Iām a super fair person and will take responsibility if something is my fault, but this was handled completely wrong.
Lucy1277 - Cannot delete old offers and parties!
I've only bought a few things on here but I've received a whole lot of notifications for offers and parties. I've tried like crazy to delete the old offers and party notifications but Poshmark's website says there's no way to opt out of party invites and no way to delete all of the old offers and/or bundles, and also that you can't make any changes to your account online, only through the app, and that doesn't go far enough. When you click to only show active offers/bundles, it doesn't show the offers previously made cause they've since expired. I've tried to unlike items but the offers still show up so if I want to make a counter offer I have to check through all the old offers to find the one item. It's ridiculous. There's just garbage to look through. I don't want party invites and I want to delete my offers/bundles/party invites, and anything else that might come up. I've turned off all of the notifications but they're still there when I reopen the app and they pop up every time I'm in the app. In addition, I agree that the 20% cut and the high shipping costs hurt everyone. I've gotten offers with reduced shipping but when I try to accept an offer it says I'm going to be paying the normal $7.11, so I don't do it. Then when I want to make an offer, I factor in the $7.11 shipping costs and offer the difference to the seller. All of this is so annoying!
Dr.poopstain - Poshmark evolution
I have been an active e-commerce store on poshmark for several years. Easy to list and update inventory, and items. However, it is the most demanding platform for your interaction. If you want sales you work it like your own website by sharing all day and working social media etc. and may not see any sales. The cost to do business fee is 20% , the highest of all platforms, that I am aware of. With a higher fee, you would think better advertising or exposure for good-rated sellers on the platform. To help the growth of loyal sellers on the platform. 2022 severely severed sales! Some of it is economic issues others are lack of exposure. There has been an update that impacts the majority of sellers to a rotation of exposure or something - literally, it is feast or famine in sales. And I am not anywhere close to 3% turn on any week or day! My biggest bonus - I have met a lot of ppl that sell on posh that are great friends! That has helped me and my business grow throughout the years! The sellers on Poshmark make the platform. They're also the ones you will get help and support from when you need it. I hope to see improvement from Poshmark to support their long-term sellers with good ratings. Online selling is not as easy as you may think! You have to be organized and motivation, keeping up with constant change to stay relevant.
CH3RRY13 - BUYER BEWARE!!
Poshmark has SHADY refund practices and even shadier āmembersā āsellingā their items on the app/site.
Poshmark does NOTHING to weed out these ābad sales practiceā users, and instead, punishes the buyer by taking WEEKS to return money for items that sellers never bothers to mail out.
I purchased items TWICE (from different sellers) and BOTH times the sellers refused to mail my orders or even respond to my messages. I had already paid but Poshmark first made me wait about 10 days to request my money back. Once I requested my money back, it took Poshmark another 3 days to even acknowledge that I cancelled the order and wanted my money back. After that, it took them ANOTHER 15 days (and an angry email from me) to get them to finally release my money back to my bank account.
The stress and hassle of Poshmark isnāt worth it and itās not fair to have to wait almost a month to get money back from Poshmark which they received within a matter of seconds. They also need really need to be more strict with who they allow to sell on their app/site. When sellers REPEATEDLY have reports against them that say they reuse to mail out orders, those users need to be banned immediately and blocks should be made to try to stop them from creating a new account. There are just more bad apples than good ones on Poshmark so just make sure you are prepared for frustration, to have your money sitting in limbo for about a month and to be completely let down.
Lalalala176 - The Shipping Price Kills Potential Sales
Iāve been using Poshmark for two years and have made a good amount of sales on the platform. I typically only have success with NWT items from well known brands (priced $30+), and rarely sell used clothing from brands like Loft, Old Navy etc. The deterrent from users buying these items is the shipping price thatās a flat rate $7.95. I list items for $5 but that $7.95 makes a used old navy shirt valued at $13 to the consumer and the amount I make as a seller is $3.75. The very high fees (25%) combined with the high shipping price makes sales very difficult.
I also list books, which have the same $7.95 shipping rate even though the USPS offers $2 media mail shipping. I really really really wish Poshmark would allow shipping costs by weight of products, media mail options etc. because it has steered me away from the platform. Iāve started listing on Facebook marketplace (takes only 5% commission and allows varied shipping options) and Iāve been able to sell the items that donāt sell on Poshmark and make significant more profit on my sales. That same old navy top would cost the consumer ~$8 (with shipping) and my commission would be $4.75.
Poshmark please update the shipping options for sellers because itās killing so many of our sales.
Mbrickie113 - Real Thrift Experience in Virtual Form
Iāve been on Poshmark for a few months now and since then Iāve gotten Depop and thredUP, so l have apps to compare it to. Poshmark is like a virtual representation of the real thrifting experience; you have to rummage through a lot of crap to find the gems. Besides the sellers, it seems the app is trying to do a lot all at once, but instead of being invested in all that it has to offer I find myself craving the simple and clean aesthetic of the other apps. Posh-ambassadors? Boutiques versus closets? Events 4 times a day? Sharing as much as you possibly can so people will pay attention to your closet! Emojis emojis emojis! My head is spinning. Itās probably just me but itās also really annoying how people (with no taste) seem to personalize (over personalize) their profiles and make (obvious) ārulesā or āetiquetteā for their pages. Oh joy more to look at...
That being said I do like how some people (with taste) personalize their photos and put real thought into their profiles. Another huge plus is how super easy it is to send packages with Poshmark just emailing you the shipping label and allocating the money for shipping ahead of time. Makes the process a no brainer and why this review got 4 stars instead of the 3 the chaotic culture and style of the app deserves.
12334CPioli - Okay
I originally downloaded Poshmark to buy gently used name brand clothes for less than store prices. I have a couple issues with the site though:
1. The shipping fee is awful. Itās $7.11 for shipping as a flat rate. Most sellers donāt have more than 1-2 items in the same sizes or styles unless you luck out and find someone with a really good closet. With that being said, if you buy a $20 item, it becomes $30 after tax and shipping, which is a lot.
2. Poshmark allows 5 days for sellers to ship, then the shipping is 3-5 days. So you pay $7.11 to potentially wait 10-11 days for your new items to arrive. And yes it has taken that long for me to receive an item.
3. I think Poshmark should add incentives for sellers to price their items more competitively. I see items all the time that are priced higher than the item from the actual retailer website. Iāve literally seen a pair of running shorts for $50 on Poshmark (which would be $62 with tax and shipping). I googled them and got them on sale for $28 from the brand website, with free shipping.
4. There really isnāt much recourse if an item isnāt as advertised. You basically have to get in a fight with the seller that Poshmark āmediatesā. It also doesnāt seem that thereās any recourse for the seller at this point either.
Kwohio1720 - They donāt protect buyers
I purchased an item from a seller that was advertised in āmintā condition but upon arrival, I accepted the shoes prematurely and could not report an issue with them. So, my only option was to rate the item and leave feedback, which I did, stating they were absolutely not in mint condition and soles of the shoes were completely worn down. The seller proceeded to leave a nasty, public comment on the item to me. When I reported it to Poshmark, they did nothing except remove the comment - which means other buyers have no indication of the retaliatory effects of providing feedback on an item (which Poshmark borderline harasses you for via email).
They cited āprivacyā as to why they could not tell me what action they took against the seller, but it was clear no action was taken, since the seller was still updating items. Essentially, Poshmark just deleted the comment and acted as though nothing happened.
Mind you, sellers get your personal residential address in order to ship you items. You have no clue who the seller is, and Poshmark covers up their behavior/harassment - it leaves you in a very poor situation should the seller decide to harass you for poor feedback or an issue.
I love the idea of sustainable shopping, but thereās probably better ways for one to do their shopping without risking your personal data or safety, or paying for inflated prices due to a middlemanās cut.
NikkiBit0822 - Shipping needs to change ASAP
Poshmark is a great app, but I find myself using Mercari more and more simply because of the shipping issues. On Mercari, not only can you choose what company you want to ship with (they show you different costs of each one), they also adjust shipping based on weight. So items that weigh less than 5 oz, it only costs $3.49 to ship, as opposed to over $7. Iām not sure why Poshmark isnāt getting on board with this same aspect. Are they pocketing the extra money once they cut the shipping label for the weight or are they doing flat rate shipping? Are they getting a business rate for flat rate shipping then charging users full price? Probably. Not sure. Either way, there is absolutely no need to flat rate ship something that weighs 3 oz. It completely scr3ws the buyer and shipper.. the buyer because they are paying outrageous shipping charges obviously.. but also the seller, because if the $7 shipping charge puts the item over what the buyer wants to pay, they donāt buy it. I canāt tell you how many items Iāve wanted to buy, but Iāve passed on, because the shipping charge just makes it WAY overpriced. This shipping issue will be the downfall of Poshmark once more and more people realize they can do the same thing for less money on Mercari. Please fix it, Poshmark Team. Your users deserve better.
Stagegymaster - Easy to use, but...
I signed up in early 2015, and I have to say this app is fantastically easy to use and I love it. I've done ok, selling-wise, gotten some great deals, as well as met (virtually, anyway) some great ladies. Itās wonderful! A few cons - I wish they had better filters when searching for items. As some reviewers have noted, "abandoned" closets or users who haven't signed on in months still have their items come up in search results. I also wish sellers had to ship faster - paying almost $7 for priority mail shipping is frustrating as you could wait up to 7 days for the seller to ship. At least PM follows up on day 4 now, but that doesnāt mean a seller will ship timely. I think you should be able to cancel your order on day 5 of waiting, if you donāt hear from your seller. Additionally in the last year, the site has focused a lot more on wholesale - there is a huge glut of cheap clothes that users buy from China wholesale sites and resell at steep markups. Everyone is selling the same crap, and itās harder to find quality stuff. I also think they lack seller protections - sometimes users give you low ratings when items don't fit, and you get some canned response from PM that basically says "Oh well, take the good with the badā
Survivormomma - Great Platform
This is a great platform to buy and sell. The amount of items available is endless! I do have a few suggestions for developers. I wish the sellers page/āmy closetā could be organized more like typical online clothing websites. Example: Once in sellers closet you could click/search for all of that sellers shirts listed, or all the sellers current deals. I wish there was more uniformity in the way sellers had to stage the items they wished to list. It wish all sellers had to follow a more detailed template when listing an item. Example: Some sellers post measurements, others do not. How each seller measures an item and then posts in a listing is different and confusing. Additionally, Iād love it if you could change your @ name. I wasnāt familiar with the application at sign-up and when asked for my name (as it will appear to others) I literally gave my name. Later I realized I should/could have listed my business as my name. Bottomline, I wish everything had a cleaner, more uniform look to it, but I also love the individuality Posh allows. I guess it comes down to personal preference, but uniformity would make the app easier for buyers to understand and navigate!
CSJ22 - Great app for buying selling!
Iāve used Poshmark as both a buyer & seller for a couple years. I love most of the features. Thereās a great selection and having the option to makes offers is a great feature. Iāve found some incredible deals and generally everyone on there is friendly and respectful.
One problem is that sold items are Not automatically removed from your likes as a buyer, so if you have a lot of them itās time consuming to go through and individually unlike each one- and thereās a delay after each unlike so it takes even more time. This app also takes up a lot of data- mostly because of the likes.
It would be great if sellers could put a feature- other than in the description of the item- to automatically select firm prices vs open to offers. There ideally would also be a separate section for sales comments/ offers separate from those you make as a buyer so you donāt miss the chance to sell an item.
I also wish there was a feature to show similar items- the one currently there isnāt well designed and so itās often easier to do a tedious search to see if the same item is available at a lower price point.
Vaaalery - Love for the MOST part
Poshmark is great and probably one of the better selling apps, but thereās constant issues with its offers and cancels. They state offers are ābindingā for 24 hours, but take a few hours (heaven forbid working your day job) not on the app and the offer you received on an item 3 or 4 hours ago is now cancelled by the buyer. With no reason why, Poshmark has invalidated their policies, leaving their sellers without the sale and the buyer able to just āofferā fickly with no actual ābindingā to them. When you want to reach out and contact Poshmark about these issues or anything really, there is no way to reach them. You select ācontact supportā within the app and nothing happens but a blank loading page never to be loaded (probably exactly what they want) so nothing get progressed. I even tried so much as to get onto the website version to try to contact support but that outcome was exactly the same.
So, for selling a few things occasionally - itās a great app! And you CAN sell your items fairly quick.
For selling items regularly and throughout the year for extra money outside of work - I would just prepare to not always be able to accept every offer sent to you and to no have any conclusive reason why or to contact Poshmark with your issues.
Seakay0192 - A few too many bad experiences
I want to start this by saying I think the idea of this app is amazing, and I loved it for a long time. However, Iāve recently encountered a couple poor experiences as a Poshmark seller. First, I sold a pair of jeans that were regular length, and I listed the inseam in the description. However, when the buyer received the jeans, she gave me a 1-star rating because the jeans were too long for her. I tried to fight the 1-star rating with Poshmarkās customer support, but they told me they couldnāt do anything to remove the unwarranted poor rating.
More recently, I had a buyer purchase a bundle of 23 items from my closet, which I was really excited about. However, in order to mail the heavy box, I was going to have to purchase a shipping label that cost half of what my earnings would be. In turn, the buyer and I decided to cancel the transaction. But now, all 23 of those items are marked as āsold,ā and canāt be purchased. The customer support team informed me that I would have to create new listings for each item. I guess the jokeās on me, though, because instead of making half the profit I originally would, those 23 items are going to Goodwill and I am closing my Poshmark account.
Overall, it would be great to see the seller protected a little more on Poshmark!
Beccalouhem22 - Favorite Selling Appš¤
I have been using Poshmark for about 7 years now. I started off listing items as a way to get rid of my unwanted, gently used clothing, and have since then begun reselling. The app is super easy to use, and I personally think reselling things is a ton of fun! With this app you really do get out of it whatever you put in. The more listings you have and people you follow, the better you will do. And SHARE SHARE SHARE!! Sharing other poshers listings is so easy, and itās a great way to get their listings out there, and they will more then likely share some of your listings too. Everyone on the app is always very nice and I have never had any issues with buyers. I have tried using other selling apps too, but they are really no comparison. The best thing about this app is that even after you initially post a listing, every time you edit or share it, it will come up at the top again. I feel like so many of my listings just get lost on other selling apps. Thereās honesty nothing negative I can say about the app, and customer support has always been very prompt and helpful!! I will probably use this app foreverš¤
Amylittl - Ehh.
Sales are great, but forget getting any support. Iāve had far too many issues that have left me unable to reach anyone in PM support for assistance. They donāt offer any real methods for sellers to protect themselves from unfair or incorrect ratings or reviews, and the returns process is a nightmare for both parties involved.
As a seller, I recently had an issue with a large boutique order, in which the buyer ripped two pieces in trying them on. She submitted a return request to PM, stating that the items were ripped when she bought them, which wasnāt the case. It was evident in the photos that she provided that the items were stretched which is what caused them to tear. Regardless, her return was approved and she received a full refund, though I only received part of the order back. Itās been a nightmare trying to get PM to help me, as Iām out nearly $60 in product, and this particular customer received two free tops. The customer service has been atrocious; every time I receive an email response (for the times they actually do respond), I get the same automated message to contact someone from support via the app. Itās like an endless loop that does me absolutely no good.
SELLER BEWARE. If youāre planning on selling on this platform, be prepared to be screwed out of your merchandise, as PM is clearly more invested in protecting fraudulent buyers than they are in protecting their sellers from said fraudulent transactions.
Cssuperfudge - Wonderful, with 1 flaw
I have been using Poshmark for a few weeks now. I have always wanted to get into selling online. I started with Mercari, but things were really slowing down on there. I had heard of Posh, and said, "why not give it a try." I posted my first item, and within hours, it sold! I was ecstatic. I went on a listing spree, and sold a couple more items over a 3 day span. I listed, shared, listed, shared. It worked. Since then, I have made 10 sales (which might not be that impressive but it was old stuff I wasn't using) and have made almost 120$!!!!!!! The customer service is extremely helpful. On Mercari, it is just automated. I like the vibe of Posh, where it really isn't just an utter flea market where everything happens at once. The parties are super creative and helpful. My listings get shared SO much!!! The community is so helpful on Poshmark and also Instagram. I would totally reccomwnd this to anyone. Whether it be for the community aspect, customer support, or quick sales, I reccomend this. The only negative thing is the fee. 20% is a LOT. I think 12-16% would be much better, as it can really eat into your margins. That is my only negative thing. Thanks for reading!!

LittleMiss BagLover - Fresh way to sell pre-loved items, app easy to use
App is very easy to use, albeit noticeable performance loading time in the non-native screens when loading static contents, such as FAQs and other articles (this can be improved).
Other than that, listing, shopping, joining parties, and notifications all work smoothly. Even generating labels for shipping can also be triggered from the app easily.
Poshmark itself is a fresh way of selling pre-loved items, it remind me of ebayās early days when it was easy for individualās listings to be noticeable (not buried under commercial shopās stocks).
JessicaSarahThomas - Almost perfect ā¦ š
I've waited patiently for years for Poshmark to finally be available in Australia which is why I was so excited for it's launch! After downloading the app I've obsessed over how easy it is to customise your items to sell as well as the accessibility to search for particular items through tailored marketplaces.
However, the only feature that irks me is the almost constant party invites I receive (multiple times a day) from complete strangers. I acknowledge that as users we are able to turn off the 'Party Invite' toggle in the notifications settings but silencing that function does not stop invites from being received in the news section when using the app.
I've noticed through online forums that other users has complained about this feature for many of years which is a bit disheartening. If 'Party Invites' is an essential function for the future I would recommend at the very least adding another toggle that we can choose to turn on/off that allows and restricts in-app party invites from being sent (by strangers and or people we follow) to us to ensure that the user experience is enjoyable and fun!
Whatithinkreview - Very bad experience
Had a very bad experience with customer service and app. Was hoping to sell preloved/ vintage clothes, but after making few listings, Poshmark blocked all my listings and stoped letting me post more. I wrote them for support but they never get back to me. I was trying to create new account but they donāt let to do it even when I use different email. They should at least explain what was the reason.
Rachel, Brisbane, Australia - Notifications are a problem, search functionality not as good as eBay
A fix to notifications is sorely needed. Currently the choice is constant notifications due to constant āposh partyā invitations (which I canāt see the point of - if I want to buy something Iāll search for it) or no notifications in which case I risk missing acting on a sale. I also wish I could narrow searches better, eBay is streets ahead in this regard. And finally, the return policy is too limited. I would like to allow buyers to return an item due to it not fitting/not suiting them and I want this option myself as a buyer. Again, EBay allows sellers to offer this option.
Mooshymichtott - Poshmark
This app is very addictive to both shop on and sell. It was a brilliant idea by the creators, I wish I thought of this myself!!! You can sell anything on here and it is a great option for people like myself that have a wardrobe or should I say house overflowing with clothes and rather than chucking them I can make money yay!!
Stellarsteph388 - Poshmark makes the circular economy go round
This is the best site to buy and sell quality items that deserve a new home and to be seen.
Iāve not only sold beautiful items to appreciative buyers, Iāve bought great pieces to revive my wardrobe. I recommend Poshmark to everyone!
š¶... It was all yellowš¶ - Constant barrage of notifications.
I got this app as it seemed like a good idea and a good place to buy some decent second hand clothes.
Be prepared to be completely spammed- in two days over 7 marketing emails and a constant barrage of notifications led me to just unsubscribe and delete.
Yeah I could have turned off notifications and perhaps sought to lessen the emails somehow but I donāt think the default should be this ridiculous. Reaching out nearly 20 times between email and notifications is absurd. Off to eBay
Loclie - Searching is near impossible
The search function needs some serious work. It defaults to the most unusual and irrelevant categories so every search you have to go into the filter and change it. Even if Iām doing something wrong - search should be intuitive, not so labour intensive. Itās near impossible to find items accurately and I have a suspicion Iām not finding all the items Iām looking for which is a shame for sellers to miss out because the app lacks in such a critical function.
A.denniss - Really not worth it.
Donāt waste your time with this app, so many unnecessary notifications multiple times a day from random quotes to party invites from strangers. Sellers are forced to up their prices due to the greedy 20% fee Poshmark takes from every item you sell. There are an abundance of other platforms to sell your clothes that are way better! Turnaround is extremely slow, and design is not user friendly - the layout is very outdated, not worth it unfortunately :(
JKL1982 - PoshLove
As a seller and buyer I love this app!
It allows me to sell my old clothing and buy preloved items at an affordable price. I especially love breaking the fast fashion trends and discovering old school pieces to add to my collection. Poshmark is user friendly and I love that itās connected to sendle postage service.
Aw aajx14 - Not great
A lot of people have issues with sellers not posting items, decided to take the risk and had the same issue.
Poshmark refunded me but
Thereās no way to review and rate sellers either if you have this kind of experience.
Thereās also no mechanism for inactive accounts. Iād recommend messaging a seller before you buy anything to make sure theyāre active.
Buyer beware using this platform, could be good but needs improvement. For now Iāll stick to depop and eBay š
Fala1001 - Love selling on posh mark
Itās super quick and super easy to upload your items to sell. Making money has never been easier
Livy-fergu - Perfect money making platform
Perfect money making platform for people of all ages that are struggling to get by. I recently just started my closet and enjoy how easily listing really is.
Smart shopper John - Excellent digital shopping center
Trustworthy seller, fast, accurate and reliable
.I donāt need to ho anywhere else for shopping
Cuty2face - unfair to seller
Not a good app to sell your products if youāre a seller,they charged 20% plus they only use one postal service which is Sendle that is not available everywhere in Australia š
And if you sold your item from other platforms they instantly blocked you from selling without any warning ā ļø!not a friendly used buy and sell app! I rather stick to EBay.
Becte Lyan - Most ridiculous apps
Every time, i tried to sell itemsā¦they purposely took down my listing because either they said āit was counterfeitā or something else. I have 0 support from poshmark customer service because they said āunfortunately they cant help meā? This is biggest racist apps i have ever seen. I would rate 0 star if there was. Dont recommend it.
Screamdrum - Great app
Seems pretty cool, havenāt sold anything yet. Selling fee seems pretty steep. But you just have to over charge to compensate for that. So effects buyers more then sellers sadly
Br00ke22aus - Best seller app
This is the best app for selling that I have used. They think if everything. Hopefully the community grows on there a bit more in Australia !!
Graciezou - Love it!
Love this app but fees are just too high! I think more people would get on board if they were cheaper as then sellers wouldnāt have to put prices so high. Please Poshmark, reduce your fees and youāll have so many more people buying and selling!!
Pertshell - FANTASTIC
Poshmark is so easy to use and with so many gorgeous items to buy. There customer service is amazing.
Ros-blondie - Posh mart
Just found this website the other day.
My daughter notified me of it.
So great. As I have lots of designer clothes that I donāt wear anymore.
But if you put on gumtree or eBay.
People donāt appreciate nice fashion and offer you ridiculous amounts. Thatās even insulting.
Posh mart gets to a better audience with high values and appreciates style and fashion.
Nofx1976 - Love Poshmark and the app
Such a great app and an amazing and easy way to sell unwanted items.
Peakachuuu - 20% of fee? Too Greedy
Too greedy in taking fee. Not worthy for selling the luxury items here.
3500$ bag fee 700$. Come on! Even consignment bags not 20%.
And today my listing got deleted. Because selling behind poshmark detected. Off course its all buyers reach me out first all asking for do cheaper price behind the apps transactions.
See?? All the buyers. So u should correct ur fee system to be not GREEDY.
The system was good and easy to understand. Poshmark is only good in selling cheap stuff. When no pain with fee.
Cat kdjsjfnfjd - 7-day distribution period :(
Call me impatient, but the seller has up to 7 days to post your item, I find this frustrating.
Marketplace has a quicker turnaround time, cheaper postage too, which I presume sellers increase to avoid the greedy 20% sellers fee.
Greta Arevalo - Highly recommended
Fastest Cashout and friendly staff
Cms_77 - Prepare to spammed with emails
Once your email address has been added you can not unsubscribe if you donāt complete the sign up process, this is in breech of Australian consumer and privacy laws, you must opt in to receive emails and unsubscribe should be simple.
Maddyggg - Too many notifications
This app sends a nauseating amount of completely irrelevant notifications, enough so that Iāve found other options to sell secondhand.
Sope_bar101 - Poshmark review
I really love the idea and Iām really happy that I found a way to make money as a 13-year old.
Badd !!!!!!!! - Fraud !
Took the payment when i bought some stuff from the seller when i returned it the courier service remarked false claim that it was delivered back to the seller and no refund since 2 weeks. Lost my money
Jaelynxie - Annoying
Gives so many unnecessary notifications
Traviscott001 - 20% Greedy Fee
Poshmark charges a 20% fee for everything that is soldā¦. For what? To help maintain an outdated app with very low traffic? They need to lower the fee and try to bring more sellers to the platform. Very hard to sell things.
MahumSalim - Amazing Store
Posh is simply amazing!!
.....456..... - Too hard to use
Very hard to use, too much going on & shipping is too hard to figure out. Donāt recommend wasting your time
Gator.-. - DISGUSTING
This app just wants your information to spam email you with random BS like 7 emails in one day??? Are you kidding me
Now many times do I have to unsubscribe also?? Iāve unsubscribed and 7 times and emailed you
NOBODY NEEDS 7 EMAILS IN ONE DAY GET A FEKKEN LIFE
Totallyriver - So hard to use
The app is so slow and so time consuming better off just using the other apps
LLC22 - RIP OFF
They take a huge amount of fees when you sell that youāre not aware of at the time of listing. Absolute rip off. Deleting it
Rjeiw - Donāt bother
You gotta pay for each item you sell? Gurllll, just use fb marketplace. Easier and cheaper
Brittbarakat - Easily the worst app delete it ASAP
People return back your damaged items and I have a friend who was returned her authentic āChanel bagā and the package came back empty and poshmark did not reply !!!!! Horrible!!!!!!!!
Ghahshajhshabsbja andnwnnas - Terrible.
35 notifications a day - all of which are useless quotes with no relevance to anything? 20% selling fees are ridiculous. Donāt waste your time.
Kellyyyyyj - Doesnāt work
Wonāt let me get past making an account. Moved onto another app.
Aannxbel - not user-friendly
so many unnecessary notifications as another reviewer has said and the app is incredibly hard to use and not user-friendly compared to other apps like depop. poshmark also takes a big chunk of the profits made so iām forced to increase the prices on my listings
Melody0917 - Buyer beware
If you use this site to buy products from you do not have a leg to stand on if the item is faulty or fake. DO NOT BUY FROM POSHMARK.
Emwebbily9989999 - DO NOT USE THIS APP
As if it wasnāt bad enough that they take 20% of profits they stole my package and wonāt return or apologise for it. Please use another site like Depop or carousell.
Lucy Aileen - Not a robot
Canāt get past the captcha to log in - stuck in an endless loop of selecting traffic lights
Deanna Marios - Calvin Klein shoes
Dont want to put nic name - Unsubscribe

Stop sending me emails
TwishTwish - FEES WAY TOO HIGH
Dont bother as by the time you sell, your way out of pocket.
20% fees deducted is way too high! PFFFTT
Sisjejficnridfjek - Stop spamming with emails
Stop spamming with emails itās so excessive.
Hehidnjsubskkdkhdhd - If I could rate it a 0 I would in a heartbeat
Long review ahead, but please please read!
Iād been looking for a third party platform to sell from for a while, as I wanted to sell from a place that was solely based around clothes. I was so excited when I found Poshmark, as itās super simple to use, looks great and has a really good share system.
I sold my first three items in my first 2 weeks but this is where it all goes downhill... My sales were picked up by courier but were never scanned into the system, resulting in poshmark harassing ME for not sending the packages. Then about 2-3 weeks later, all of my items were suddenly marked as delivered, despite no one receiving a thing. Myself and my buyers reached out, Poshmark repeatedly said there was nothing they could do as the issue was on the couriers end. Myself and one other buyer tried but could not get a hold of the courier company as they do not have a contact number. This lasted so long we had even talked about contacting consumer affair.
Eventually everything turned up. So I decided to give the app another try, because I desperately wanted this to work. I spent a few hours drafting my next drop and immediately, Iām talking before I could even refresh my page, 8 out of 14 of my new items were flagged as counterfeit (which they certainly are not), all of my other items were removed and Iāve been blocked from adding anymore.
Iām beyond upset that after such a horrible first experience, in which poshmark lost items, said it was out of their hands, then continued to blame ME... They now have the nerve to block me from further selling!
Iād also like to add, that unlike any other platform Iāve used, Poshmark charges itās sellers 20% of the sales price, which is actually ridiculously high!
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me but I will not be fooled a third time and I will strongly encourage anyone who is still reading this, DO NOT USE THIS APP!

Ww12341 - š¤©USE JOANNAW38 for $15š¤©
š¤©USE JOANNAW38 for $15š¤© I have been using this app for many years now and have been loving it! Great way to earn money from selling unworn clothing/jewelry/shoes! The app also has many popular brands like Nike, adidas, Louis Vuitton, and TNA. You can buy brand new clothing for a more affordable price than retail!
Banana republic loverr - Love it
But should not be paying taxes on second hand clothes in my opinion. That doesnāt even make sense since they were taxed originally.
XCLAIREv - Great but could be betterā¦
After its release in Canada, I quickly jumped on and added Poshmark to one of the many popular selling platforms (Instagram, Depop, Etsy, Craigslist, to name a few) I use regularly. However, the app could be better. While it is a breeze to post items for sale and shipping logistics are done on their end for you, the user interface and design can improve in quality, looks, and overall appeal.
Closets show only 2 vertical rows while scrolling through, which makes it absolutely inconvenient to scroll through a closet with plenty of items (despite having and using search filters). This is where Instagram and Depop excel with 3 rows, allowing for a better overall view of posts (besides using a computer to go onto the Poshmark website). Moreover, just scrolling through your own closet just to add an item to a Party, refresh/reshare, edit or delete is time consuming. There needs to be an easier way to do this like a selection phase of items prior to x action performance. While I understand some Users/Sellers have the pleasure of reselling as a full time job, for most, this is not the case, and time is of the essence.
Additionally, despite a younger 18-34 demographic presence, the design of this app seems to attract or target a more older demographic that does not always equate to a finer or trendier taste in fashion and style. Which is fine, there is something for everyone, and that is what Parties are for. However, there is no denying that Poshmark attracts a certain crowd and vibe, whether intentional or not. One can already tell with the amount of recent reviews here filled with self promo and app marketing in order to make some cash for shopping. Even Party Host Picks share bias as some host picks items do not tend to sell immediately or are of poor taste. These may be successful tactics, but it does not seem to help Users in the long run.
The high costs that are taken from sales to run this app/company, and the quite high shipping fee (yes, shipping is still a tad bit too high at 99 cents more because taxes are added in these sale transactions) leads a Seller to less of a gain (sometimes not even break even profit) unless selling items of greater resell value due to popularity and/or demand. So not all things can sell or be of actual profit. Even popular or in demand items canāt sell if potential Buyers feel like the price is too steep when it is very much discounted from RRP already. This has lead to some Sellers deleting their closets and relying on other ways/platforms to sell their items.
Which leads me to Poshmarkās overall in-your-face marketing. The seemingly often Closet Clear Outs look like a great way to make quick profit by Sellers having to drop prices equating to cheaper shipping for a few hours, but actually, it is a way to mainly benefit Poshmark by attracting more people to shop and make purchases. Sellers already drop their prices significantly just to make a sale.
Also, I hope there is a possibility that blocking a User leads to them not viewing your Closet as a few rare Sellers do copy words or edits almost verbatim of other veteran Sellers (who spend a lot of time and effort perfecting their marketing) without their knowledge or consent, which happened in my case. A block to not share, interact, etc is not really enough. It is a rarity, but there are Sellers out there who are desperate enough to not be original and can at times, be outright harassing.
I hope my review is taken into consideration. I look forward to a potential merge of Canadian and American markets for an increase in item variety and sales. As well, I hope Poshmark and their app developers make some changes and improvements besides adding new markets (like Home šš¼).
Dreber101 - Itās ok
Although the format and ease of use is really appealing there are a few areas I donāt like about using Poshmark. I donāt agree with having to offer reduced shipping when making an offer to a customer. That should be my choice not Poshmarks. I am already paying enough of my money to Poshmark in other fees. I also donāt agree with having to pay taxes on clothing that I have already paid taxes on when initially purchasing them from the store.
Allydoll63 - SCAM
MY FRIEND WAS SCAMMED ON POSHMARK!!!! she sent a $1150 bag to someone who then said it was scratched and they āreturned itā. inside the return box was a roll of tape. absolute garbage app and nobody should use it
Hudz604 - Have not received my payment
I am actually quite disappointed with the support I have received from Poshmark. Very minimal. I sold a pair of boots late September, and still have not received the deposit. Itās mid October. I followed up with Poshmark support, who responded once and heard nothing after that.
Lizzie Anya - Canāt change shipping country
I moved to Canada from the states a year ago. Found out Poshmark is in Canada but It wonāt let me change my address from USA to Canada.
Branavan Rajsekar 200- - Horrible app
This app takes so much money from you. If your sale is over $20, they take 20% of commission and they take tax money from this. Like what the hell? Why is there even tax for this. I sold a pair of Mukluks for $184 before tax earnings. After tax I made, $138.74 because this stupid app applies so much deductions. Another issue is, they do not show the right amount of your earnings once the order has been bought. They will have earnings before tax so because of this, its so hard to make offers to buyers or even negotiate. This app is only good to sell used/good condition items you have in your closet.
20% commission is already a lot and and on top you apply tax depending on the province? This is extremely stupid.
Whiiteoleanderr - Shit brand.
Horrible people, donāt do business with this app. SCAMMERS
Mitch.clarke - Wayyyytt over priced
For 90% of the products being sold on this app it would be cheaper to fly to the flagship store and buy it directly from the high fashion designer. People donāt seem to understand the fact the are selling used clothes, somehow they think the fact that they wore the item adds value?? I didnāt know that was a thing until now, donāt bother downloading, waste of time.
Fabulouszachary - TRASH
Nothing is new, everything is falsely advertised! And you can buy new for just about the prices. Kijiji is wayyyy better
Sherry10098456 - Ridiculous fees and terrible customer service
The seller and buyer fees are ridiculous- 20%, $14 shipping, and they tax the item and shipping. Itās much cheaper to sell/buy directly.
What do you get for these astronomical fees? The most terrible customer service. Do not sell luxury here, there is a very high chance you will be scammed and Poshmark customer service will most definitely ignore you.
On top of that, the UX/UI is terrible. Reminiscent of the early 2000s websites made by a freelancer working for $100 fixed priceā¦
DaBomb8r - New tax hike šš
I used to love Poshmark but now theyāre charging every tax applicable in the country on your final orderā¦ my tax on orders went from just over a dollar for big items. Now I order 20$ pants, shipping is 13.50$ and taxes is 4.05$ā¦
Thatās an insane amount of tax, almost 25% tax on your orderā¦ been effective as of July 1/22.
We shouldnāt be taxed on shipping or be charged sales tax on something that has already been taxed before when brand new.
Am I buying a car or clothes?? I canāt tell anymore..doesnāt seem to be a difference..
Poshmark just got greedyšš
Music freaks fan - AVOID
If anyone is trying to download this app do yourself a favour an donāt. This guys are only here for money, they do not care about customer service either as a buyer or as a seller. They have good reviews here because people come to get discounts/promote but at Business Bureau, Trust Pilot, and Site Jabber they hardly reach 1 star. Beware
BBBWWWJJJ - Love this but shipping...
This app is awesome!! The products listed on here are crazy, with so much variety and at such good prices. My only complaint is shipping. If a product is a good price you have to add another $13 for the cost of shipping. In my opinion thereās a big difference between $30 and $43. I just find it frustrating because there are so many products I find absolutely amazing but will not buy because the shipping is not worth it. I hope that poshmark can change its shipping options. I donāt care if it takes longer to ship my product if it means I could pay under $10.
Andcupcakestoo - Discount lies
Do not use this app! This service is terrible for lying about their shipping discounts, and exorbitant shipping prices to begin with. Two different times I was supposed to have discounts applied to my shipping costs, and both were not. Customer service informed me they had āexpiredā - which is odd because the second, specifically, said it was for being the first purchase for the seller and was a huge banner on the page at point of sale. How did it expire, quite literally, while I checked out - and nobody else did?
There are many other online buy and sell apps - lets check those out instead, and popularize honesty instead of snaky business practices. We as purchasers donāt deserve this.
Kksxo - Fraudulent
Easy to post your items and ship off, expect either no money in return or for the buyer to ship back an empty box? And posh mark did NOTHING except tell me to try and file a police report.. honestly your wasting your time, try depop or heck try Facebook marketplace or kijiji honestly ANYTHING is better than this garbage
ShaniaGomez - DO NOT SELL ON POSHMARK
Poshmark wonāt issue your payment until buyer receives item.
I sell on other platforms, and if youāre trying to make an extra income, I highly recommend Depop!
Iāve shipped out items to buyers and NEVER received the payment.
Iāve lost money through this platform.
Cassie.Montrea - Broken and dirty
I received a broken and dirty jacket. I asked for the refund , I sent photos and a video and then they told me that I did not qualify for a refund because: Requested video was not submitted within alotted timeframe. š¤·š¼āāļøPoshmark disappointed me.
Joclangis - Payment pour les ventes effectuĆ©es....
The only way to get paid is by giving access to your bank account even if you see PayPal in choices to be paid...this is to be reviewed in my opinion specially with all the technology we have now! Not very happy about that. But the application is great!
Stellabystarlights - They will NEVER get back to you
For some unknown reason they randomly asked me to verify my payment method by scanning my passport or driver's license for them. No! I am very uncomfortable providing that information to a non- government agency especially as there is no reason to verify my payment method in the first place? I have repeatedly asked them to contact me (you know, the way people using fraudulent payment methods often do!) but to no avail. So, I can no longer purchase anything while I wait for a response that will never come.
Itās really too bad because I loved the concept and really enjoyed having access to quality used goods. I didnāt even mind paying the high shipping costs. So...I have no other recourse, but to write a negative review- you know, the way people using fraudulent payment methods do. Aaaaargh!
Kat29422 - Tax and too much taken from seller
Taxes added to purchase. Not sure why especially when when sellers dont have boutiques. Making want to look other putlets to sell, give away my stuff.
And pourcentile taken from seller at the time of our purchase is too high. Making me want to use other apps not taking any fees.
Good for the shipping.
Stephanielusk - New fees take away the incentive to shop
Poshmark was a great opportunity to get designer items at a much lower costs and it was fun negotiating prices but now with the new high shipping costs and taxes added thereās no longer an incentive to buy from Poshmark rather than just getting the brand new item at pretty much the same cost. I think Iāll be deleting the app for now.
Sniper464 - Notifications and emails were fare too much
Tried unsubscribing multiple times. It was enough to ruin the whole experience. Would rather pay more money
Diruwbskei - The worst app to date (waste of time)
The service sucks, the company behind the app is rude, and the app itself is super glitchy and wonāt let me get support. What a waste of time.
Mert889 - WHY IS THIS FOLLOWING PEOPLE AUTOMATICALLLYYYY
WHY IS IT FOLLOWING PEOPLE ON BEHALF OF ME????? IT IS SO STUPID I DONāT WANT ANY OF THIS SHOPS IN MY FEED IT IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!
IDestroy-uDestroyed - Unregulated Pile of Sh*t
Iāve tried buying off Poshmark a few times now, and every single time itās been a scam. I got my money back after like, weeks each time, but itās so full of fake posts that itās worthless to try and find something you want.
Mevangeline - Shipping Changes Causes Monster Problems
New shipping changes with better pricing on the platform + app have caused monster problems in Canada! Labels canāt be printed, some canāt send their shipments due to PO Boxes now. They are also having substantial problems replying to customers with issues related to all of this. Iām still waiting for someone to follow up and/or fix my issues related to this problem and itās almost been a week now. Had to temporarily shut off my account. Really disappointed.
Shellfarr - From 5 starts to 1ā¦
Was 5 starts before they added Purolator shipping. Now 1 star. I am a seller/buyer.
I live in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere and donāt have a Purolator pick up location, the closest one is almost an hour away. When I tried entering my address to get it shipped to my house by Purolator, it says my address is invalid. I have gotten things shipped to my house by Purolator numerous times so itās not invalid. There is no way Iām paying $17.99 for shipping with Canada Post. I know prices on everything is going and all that so I was okay with Purolator but I guess not.
I havenāt sold anything since they added Purolator but Iām okay with setting up a free pickup but since I canāt use my earnings/balance to get anything without having to pay almost $20 for shipping, itās not worth it to me. Itās too bad cause I loved the app. š¤·š¼āāļø
Whoeveriam101 - Awful
This app is not worth it for a seller like myself.
Shipping is only within Canada, no international shipping! I moved on to a different selling platform and doing really well! Iām better off without these āmiddle menā/apps taking bigger percentage than they should, and wanting more than they deserve!
If youāre a re-seller like myself, I suggest you start your own website and attract buyers through Google ads, Instagram and local ads in your area. Iāve gained a lot of natural traffic through online advertisements. Be like me, be independent so you never have to rely on anyone but yourself!
I closed my shop on Etsy, depop and now im closing my Poshmark.
These companies are way to greedy asking so much money for nothing.
Used.2.B.a.Fan - Great if you want $2 for your items
The app is easy to use and you can sell stuff through the platform. The shipping is absolutely outrageous. Iāve seen previous reviews on here saying that the prices are so high you donāt even want to use the app to purchase clothingā¦ sellers on Poshmark have absolutely no choice because of the amount of money Poshmark takes for themselves and for shipping. I sold two Calvin Klein pyjama bottoms together my take after Poshmark took everything else was .80 cents not even near the gas $$$ to drive down to the post office. I have to sell three items before I leave for the post office because my takeaway is sooooo little. Also we can say that itās expensive and we can go down to the store to buy a new product but really the whole point of this is trying to keep stuff out of the landfills and Poshmark canāt do that with the money they take from sellers.
Also another thing is-if somebody gives you a bad review for shipping yet you shipped the same day yet Canada post is really slow the buyer can give you a bad review. Also thereās people that donāt know how do use Poshmark think theyāre giving you a good review but they misunderstood it and check marked everything that was āwrongā with the item instead of everything that was right. Poshmark doesnāt look into these bad reviews for the seller they donāt care. Some guy gave me a bad review on a sweater because he didnāt look to see that it was womanās in the womenās section and it even said womenās sweatshirt at the top of the description- I donāt know how he missed it but I still got a bad review for it-I cannot change postings after someoneās bought it which is good because then you can prove that it was exactly what you said it was. Either way still bad review for item description when it clearly had the description.
For now I will sell my stuff on Poshmark for $20 and receive a portion of $4 or less because of all the fees they take. Never mind all the time I take sharing other peoples items, joining posh partyās and so on itās really almost truly not worth my time.
Another reviewer had mentioned that Poshmark will have a āDrop your price eventsā for more salesā¦ when sellers have already dropped prices to the point of barely making anything. I donāt know how weāre supposed to drop them even lower thatās just for Poshmark to make money not for the seller ā¹ļø
GazeboGussie - Itās great,but fees are too high.
The fees on low cost items are too high. Items of $10 or less are not worth posting.
Jfddecihn - Not profitable
you spend more time collecting followers than you actually do making sales it gets to the point where you are getting followers all day long nonstop notifications, but no sales cheap customers. Shipping fees are too high.
Mm92xxxx - Fine, untilā¦
Poshmark is a pretty good place to buy and sell. It can be difficult to break into consistent sales but it is otherwise good.
My main issueāand it is a big oneāis their moderation. All of my listings disappears over 24 hours ago, an order for an item I really really loved was cancelled, and my ability to use any of the features of the site other than searching has been stripped. I was given no reason why. Nor even told it was happening until I discovered it myself!
I eventually submitted a service request, and still have heard nothing. It is really a shame. I am likely going to switch to other apps like Grailed and even moreso Vintedāwhich has always given me great service when requested. Not as big an audience as Poshmark, but worth it in my mind.
Mars_vv - Get $15 yourself with code OPENPHD
Be aware Canadian site now needs to pay tax! It gets expensive very quickly. I do not understand this tax on second hand items, US site doesnāt.
Mtenoever - Spam email!
I had to sign up to view the products and now I get about ten emails per day despite āunsubscribingā from so many and even sending an email requesting to stop spamming me! Not happy!
Country Bear 1111111 - Poshmark review
It would be great less commissions from seller point of view. As buyer would like to have different shipping options by weight.
Kiersten.N - Good App
Poshmark is great for selling stuff to make a little bit of extra cash! Creating listings is super easy, and not time consuming. The shipping logistics is super easy, Poshmark sends you the shipping label after you make a sale so you donāt pay out of pocket for shipping. The only downside is the 20% fee Poshmark takes off every sale, thatās a little too much in my opinion.
LoLiLoLoPosh - Taxes?
Nice items but ā¦
The shipping costs are very high and now you are adding taxes to the itemsā¦
No longer interesting to buy
Bmrjx - They take a huge share!!
I have used this app a lot, it is good, however they take such a large share of both the purchaser and the sellerā¦ itās actually ridiculous! Itās unfortunate because this hinders discounts or actually selling your used clothes for super affordable prices!! I recommend Vinted for anyone like me, a student just trying to empty out old stuff and make a little extra cash!! Vinted doesnāt take a share of the sellers earnings and the amount that the purchaser pays has an added shipping cost that is more than reasonable !!
Co218 - App works great but fees are ridiculous
The app is extremely user friendly and so easy and quick to use! I simply adore it. HOWEVER! Rating is one star because as a buyer, any type of savings that could be made from buying second hand are completely negated by the ridiculously high shipping prices. Whats even more annoying is that for a brief period, there was a slightly cheaper Purolator alternative but that was taken away within a few weeks. Even with the purolator alternative, shipping costs were way too high but it still helped. As a seller, its very hard to sell things because people use the app like Instagram where they ālikeā your items without having any interest in purchasing. Its very hard to make any money at all because just to get the price you want, you need to mark up your selling price significantly (because on top of a shipping cost poshmark also takes a cut of every listing), so most people either offer a lesser price or counteroffer less than the already lower price you offered. Even on new items, its very hard to get cost price, let along make any kind of profit.
Nanakajajsisissi - Customer service is useless
You better hope you don't have any issues with any transactions because poshmark's customer service will just give you some pre written typical response that does not address anything youve said at all. Oh and lets not forget how if you make a sale poshmark will take a huge chunk of your earnings. & if you're buying something expect to pay damn near 20 bucks just to ship it.
Sumactea - Stop Spamming inbox with āPartiesā
Like this marketplace app but hate the spamming going on in your inbox - constant notices from Poshmark āeditorā to Parties you have no interest in - Stop PM editor party invites!
A123s456 - Love the app, but volume seller support is a joke
Love this app and all that itās done for me. Butā¦ your priority support for PA2 is not real. Falsely advertise that we have this extra support yet we wait 2 plus week for extremely generic non helpful answers.
You should take volume seller feedback seriously. There are 20+ suggestions I could make to improve the app. Why donāt you take user feedback seriously?
Swiss Chalet Fan 2020 - Far too many selling App has gone down hill
There are far too many sellers selling far too many undesirable pieces. Posh wants you to put your items on and then when ālikersā ā„ļø your merchandise you are expected to drop the price further by 10% to help secure the sale AND reduce the shipping cost! The only winner is Poshā¦
Seems like sales have slowed as the economy has and although I ā„ļø a deal and ā„ļø giving one, the expectation is reaching a sad crescendo.
Kandruko - Buyer beware!
The second time I bought an item, it didnāt look the same as it did in the photo, and it had shrunk so it didnāt fit me. The seller was awful, argued, lied and ultimately got her way. Posh support said it was my fault for not asking more questions! $80 loss! I will never buy anything on this app again. Posh letās sellers get away with scamming you.
MiDNiTE x Halo - Few Issues
I really enjoy the prepaid shipping label, especially for things like coats and shoes. However, there are a few issues I have with this platform. Firstly, why canāt we delete comments? Itās infuriating to have comments on a post that are either irrelevant or unneeded. Secondly, the 20% fee is insane, especially since they tax on top of the fee, so itās more than they initially state. They also state they have a solid fee if you sell anything under $20, yet, that fee is almost 19%. You canāt sell anything for less than $8 because youāll be out of money. Also, I feel really uncomfortable with the idea that I have to depend on the buyer for me to be able to access my earnings. People can easily toy with the system. Also, why do they have THREE FULL DAYS to inspect an item? It should be at max 2 and the seller should receive the earnings on the third day, not the fourth. Lastly, can we PLEASE remove sold listings? It irritates me because it just fills up our profiles and looks cluttered. Let people leave reviews so there is a record of the item being sold and we can delete sold listings. Oh, and please implement buyer ratings. Side note, the Poshmark community is incredibly self-righteous, and more often than not, youāll run into people who have a holier-than-thou attitude, including a ton of people marking stuff up ridiculous prices because of the Posh fees but then wanting stuff for cheap in return. Iāve been blocked buy a seller simply because I declined an offer.
Procreationist - Search filter is useless
Using the search filter is useless. Items your specifically search for show up among endless postings of items that have little or nothing to do with what youāre actually searching for. Often, items youāre searching for DONāT show up in your search, and I know this because they show up when Iām searching for other things. Very frustrating
Miss kittybuns - TAXES?? Insane
This was a useful re selling app, though the fees they take are already so high. The choice to use purolator and charge double the price for Canada post was horrendous because 1) we should be supporting Canada post and 2) depending on your area, this makes it more difficult for some shippers to drop off packages. Now theyāre charging taxes on used items ??? Thatās ridiculous. People are buying an item for $20 and paying the same amount for shipping and ātaxes.ā Iāll still keep my posts up, but I donāt think Iāll be purchasing again unless thereās something I really really want and I imagine others will feel the same.
Nbcfan1234 - Donāt use this app
I am deleting this app loved it but when you sell an item now for 8.00 you make 4.00 they take half your earnings this is outrageous . Done with them
