Selling on Poshmark is a great way to make a side income. Here is a peek into what I’ve learned about reselling since starting my journey back in the Summer of 2019.
Hope this helps you become a #POSHBOSS
1. Take Clear and Bright Photos that show the WHOLE Item
At first, I took pictures on the back of my bathroom door. Let’s just say I am embarrassed that those pictures still show up in my sold listings.
This is a method I know other people think will work when they start reselling. I mean, hey, its a clear white surface that you can use an over the door hanger-on. But from a buyer standpoint, it does not scream luxurious to have door hinges in the background and likely poor lighting. Instead, a simple way to take cute pictures is a white wall with natural light.
2. Use Quality Hangers that are Consistent in Your Photos
Once again you want to come off as a high-quality brand no matter the items you sell. If you want others to take your business seriously, you have to first.
I went to the goodwill outlet and got a wood shirt and pant hangers. Cheap, cute, and easy!
3. Package Items in a Cost-effective Manner
I constantly see people spending a ton on making their packaging cute. If it brings you joy then, by all means, do it. But form a business standpoint, it is not responsible to be spending a large amount on the packaging.

4. Get a Steamer
This is a must for selling on Poshmark. I waited way too long to get one. It makes your garments look amazing in pictures not to mention it disinfects the clothing you source from the thrift store.
So basically it is a must.
5. Create a Brand for Your Closet
By this, I do not mean only carry one type of clothing. You will learn what sells for you as time goes on. But rather, pick a username that embodies the seller you want to be and create an Instagram to share your journey.
The Instagram community for selling on Poshmark is huge and you will surely generate traffic to your closet by making one!
