How to Make Sales on Poshmark in 2020

New on Poshmark? Trying to get that side hustle going with all those clothes you are never going to wear? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with this quick and easy guide on how to make sales on Poshmark.

Does Listing Items Daily Make More Sales on Poshmark?

We cannot stress this enough for newbies, list as much as you can.  The more you list, the more money you will make. Why? When you regularly update and list more items in your closet, you improve your chances of appearing in the search tab among the other newly posted items.

Moreover, you can always re-list your already posted items if they don’t attract enough traffic. In addition to this, you can spread your listings over some time instead of posting all your inventory in one day. For example, out of the 15 items you want to sell on Poshmark, schedule 3 listings per day.

How Does Description Help You with Increased Sales?

You must add accurate details of the clothing or items you post. For instance, buyers often complain that they are looking for a leopard print skirt with a stretchy fabric. However, they never seem to find items matching the exact description they search for. Rather they accidentally come across them in their feed with unhelpful descriptions like, ‘nice printed skirt. Wore only once.

Likewise, consider searching for sellers who enlist the same items as you. Give them a follow and a share of their closet. 1 out of every 10 follows will always return the favor. Similarly, many sellers are offering the same item as you. All you have to do is follow everyone who has liked this item.
