Poshmark: a new app that helps you sell your stuff

This spring cleaning season, instead of spending hours sifting through unwanted items and scrambling to figure out what to throw away and what to put into storage, why not sell items right from your phone and make some serious cash? A local Poshmark user talks about how this new app is turning her used clothes into cash and changing the way she views her closet.

Poshmark is a mobile marketplace for fashion where millions of women come to buy and sell their clothes.  The app is free and available on iPhone, iPad and Android and you can shop directly from the website as well. You can easily turn your closet into cash and save on shopping designer fashion – right from your phone.

Poshmark is very social and when you follow the people and brands you like, you can build your own shopping network where you’ll see when there are new items that people you follow are listing and even when they share things from other closets Think of it like eBay meets Instagram meets Pinterest.

It’s a Posh Family. You get to know people and once people like your closet they follow yours, it’s call Sharing is Caring…the more followers you get them the more opportunity you have to sell.”  Esta Denny, local Posher

Listing an item for sale takes less than 60 seconds, you just take a photo of the item you want to sell, write a quick description, set the price and within seconds it is up for sale to millions of shoppers

When a sale is made, Poshmark emails you a pre-paid USPS shipping label so all you have to do is package your item in any box, slap the label on and handoff to your postman. Once the buyer receives her purchase, she has 3 days to accept the item in the Poshmark app.  Once she does, the money is released in your account.  You can spend it on your own shopping or easily take out of Poshmark to use as needed. The buyer pays the shipping which is a flat rate of $4.99 for 2-3 day shipping up to 5 lbs anywhere in the US.  Poshmark’s commission is 20% on items over $15 and a $2.95 flat rate for items that cost less than $15. The commission includes payment processing, any additional shipping costs, customer service, etc.

As a shopper, you can shop from over 5,000 different brands at up to 70% off retail
