If you’re looking to make some extra cash, try looking in your closet first.
Some experts suggest that we only wear 20% of what’s in our closets on a regular basis. So it might make a lot of sense to monetize what’s in your wardrobe before buying new. But how? With the emergence of online marketplaces meant for the resale of clothing, shoes, and accessories, it’s easier than ever to make some extra cash on clothing or other items you don’t wear anymore.
Learn the best tips for selling on Poshmark, from clothing and shoes to accessories, plus what photos work best, ways to share your listings via social media, and even how to join the app’s virtual shopping events.
Poshmark declares itself as the largest social online commerce site where users can buy and sell fashion items such as clothing, shoes, and accessories. The site boasts more than 25 million items uploaded via cell phone and 5,000 different brands for sale on the site and app. Poshmark offers both new and used items for women, men, and children.
Here’s How It Works
Simply download the Poshmark app—it’s free and available for iPhone and Android.
Next, snap a few photos of your item on your phone right in the app. You can even enhance the photos by adding a filter.
Then, fill in the item description with as many details as you can. Lastly, add the price, click done and your item is officially listed.
Once you sell an item, Poshmark sends you a pre-addressed, pre-paid shipping label via email. All you have to do it package your items and drop it off at the nearest U.S. Postal Service (USPS) mailbox or arrange for home pickup.
