You know that yellow sweater that you bought from Forever 21 that you thought was super cute but later realized that yellow wasn’t your color? Or what about those pair of Levi’s that don’t fit you anymore? Or that purse that you never use anymore? Well I’ve got a way for you to get rid of that junk and make money!
I have recently discovered a website called Poshmark. (Which is also an app available in the App Store).
What is it you ask? Great question reader!
Poshmark is a website/app where you can buy/sell/trade your clothes, jewelry, shoes, accessories, etc. Trading is a common occurrence on Poshmark but the staff doesn’t recommend it.
How does it work?
After you make an account, you can make a listing for your item, where you include a picture, condition, size, asking price, etc. All of your items will appear in your closet which is visible to the public .
When you sell an item on Poshmark, they actually take a percentage of your asking price for the item. (I mean how else are they supposed to make money?) They will send you an email with a pre-paid shaping label and all you have to do is pack up your item for shipping, put it in a box (not a priority flat-rate box) , tape the shipping label to the box, and drop it off at the post office or schedule a pick up online. It’s as simple as that!
The shipping label is for 2 day shipping (which is freaking fantastic!) and it also includes insurance.
After you ship, you have to wait until the customer receives and approves of their purchase, then the money is put into your account. The money that you make will be saved onto your account and you have the option to either keep it on your account for future purchases on Poshmark, have a check mailed to you, or have the money transferred to your bank account.
You can also purchase items as well. It is also really simple. You just click buy and enter in your credit card information or use your balance on your Poshmark account.
I have sold several items on Poshmark and I can just say that it is a great way to get rid of stuff that you don’t use anymore and make some extra cash.
The only con is the shipping price. $4.99 for shipping is ehh okay. I mean it’s kind of a bummer if you find a cute dress for $10 and then have to pay $15. Like okay that’s fantastic. Not.
Other than that, I find Poshmark to be an awesome way to sell your clothes, etc and to restock your closet with really amazing stuff! There are great deals on Poshmark! Just go and take a look for yourself!
