Meet the college students who made over 2,000 dollars selling their clothes on Poshmark!

What is Postmark…?

Postmark is a fashion marketplace app that allows buyers and sellers to share clothing. It’s a simple way for people across American to sell or buy fashion. Sellers decide their listing price for items and once sold they keep 80% of the profit.

Ever feel like you never wear half the clothing in your closet? Sign up for Poshmark and make money to buy on-trend fashion!

The key to being on Poshmark is staying active on it. I have over 15,000 followers because I am constantly following and sharing other poshers items. I share almost every day and participate in follow games with other poshers. Another tip, is to be as responsive and accommodating as possible. Buyers love to see fast response and ship times! You’ll receive great ratings and you can eventually become a top-rated seller! Overall its very simple and it’s a great platform for earning some extra cash.

For tips, just share share share! The more you share your listings and others’ listings too, the more they will circulate throughout the Poshmark feed, and bring more visibility to your account. Also, make sure to follow a ton of people to grow your community and following as well, all leads to an increase in sales!
