If you’re like me, you’re using this time in quarantine to work on projects around your house that you didn’t have the time for before. One of those might be decluttering and organizing different areas of your home. I’ve been selling clothes that are in great condition (or maybe even new with tags still on because I never actually wore it…) for about a year on Poshmark. It’s pretty simple and I’ve made some extra cash. Here are a few tips to get started on your own Poshmark closet!
1. Decide if the item is something you would be happy buying online – is it in good condition? If there are any flaws, make sure to document them in photos and in your description and make sure the price reflects them. Is it a popular brand? Is it on trend and in season? These will help you score quicker sales.
2. Set up an area to take quality photos. What I do isn’t fancy…I just hang the items on the back of a solid white door in a hallway and use a ring light to help with the lighting. I also steam all of the items before I take photos of the clothing. I use a photo backdrop as a background for any items that don’t hang, like accessories. I try to take photos of any details, tags, fixtures, etc. The more photos the better!
3. Order FREE shipping supplies from USPS! They have tons of options online that they will ship to you for free. The less money you’re putting into it, the more you make! The buyer pays the shipping costs and you receive a shipping label for 1-3 day USPS Priority Mail in your email. Make sure you’re using Priority Mail supplies or a plain box and NOT Express Mail boxes.

4. Share, share, share. Share your own listings to your followers and in any Poshmark parties to get more eyes on your items. You can also share and interact with other Poshmark users and their closets. I also share my own items after sales to keep like items organized together in my closet and all sold items at the bottom.
5. Stay consistent. Try to list and/or share each day to stay active and stay seen. I’ve seen more interactions and better sales when I list two items each day versus listing ten items in one day and then not having anything new to list for a couple of weeks.
