For all of you iPhone users out there, if you don’t Poshmark – then you are crazy. I discovered this app about a month ago, and absolutely fell in love with it! Personally, I can change-up a wardrobe pretty quickly and because of that I end up with a fair amount of hardly worn pieces that just sit in my closet and collect dust. I’ve brought them to places like Plato’s Closet or even tried eBay to sell – but with no luck. Either I get offered too little, or nothing at all. Sites like eBay are just too big to have buyers come across your items. However, with using Poshmark, it is smaller and much more customization which maximizes who is seeing your closet. The best part? I don’t have to upload photos and re size them. Just take a few photos with my phone, add them to the app, put in a description, price the item and I am done!
Doesn’t that just look like so much fun? A little store of my own, all on my iPhone. Another nice feature of Poshmark is that they deal with the postage. Shipping is charged at check-out, and they send you a prepaid label to put on the package. Print it and pack it up at home, and then schedule a pick up over at USPS.com. You can sell your closet without actually leaving your home. Tell me that isn’t a total time saver. For those of you have used eBay, you can know how time consuming taking photos and listing can be, but Poshmark makes things so much easier. No PayPal fees to contend with, either! Poshmark holds funds in your account until the buyer has accepted your item, and then you can transfer the money into your bank account or keep it on file to shop on Poshmark.
The app does take 20% of your sale price, but there is no charge for listing so you can keep sharing your item as much as you like. You don’t pay a dime unless it sells. 20% may be a high amount, but you have to think how much you may make on eBay or at a garage sale. I’m telling ya, you’re going to make a lot more on Poshmark despite the 20%.
Unfortunately, the app is only for iPhone or iPad users, but I did just read on the website that they are working towards a shoppable website and creating an Android interface. With that being said, iPhone users get it now because it’s about to get HUGE.
