Thinking big picture… about the Rules.

Before I even open my mouth please know… this is MY OPINION.

I promise that I am not leaking super secret information. I’m thinking big picture here and throwing out a bunch of “Maybes” and “What Ifs.”

I have been thinking a lot about the Poshmark “rules.”

I’m not speaking about the fundamentally wrong ones like taking transactions off the app or selling replicas… but some of the other item restrictions.

In the almost 2 years I have been a part of the Poshmark Community there have been a few items that were once taboo but are now allowed.

New Shipping Rates on Poshmark

UPDATE:

As of 2/8/2017, Shipping rates on Poshmark have increased to $6.49 for Priority Service. Although this blog post post is about the rate change from the same month in 2016… my opinions remain the same.

 

Well, my friends… I expect today to be a slow day.

New Shipping Rates on Poshmark are now in effect!

Overnight it was announced that standard Priority Shipping on purchases weighing up to 5 lbs will now be $5.95 $6.49 (updated 2/8/2017)

Only a few short years ago, the rate was $6.99 so it could be worse… right???

I have already stated my case in the post Are You Talking Ship? so I will not regurgitate my stand.

Take note of Posher comments in the post- very good examples are listed.

My Thoughts on NWT, NWT Retail, and the Boutique feature

…on Poshmark

(If you do not have Boutique feature yet, update your app. The Android update will come in the next few weeks. If you still cannot view the feature- you can read about it on the Poshmark Blog HERE.)

Disclaimer: I have been trying to write a post about “Retail” for some time now…

The only way for me to get my thoughts out is to just throw them out there.

So here you go:

I generally do not shop Poshmark “NWT Retail.”

Hi, I’m @GrayAsparagus

Like many of you, when I first downloaded the Poshmark App, I had NO CLUE what was about to happen.
I didn’t know that almost 2 years later I would still be buying, selling, and now blogging about it!
When I signed up and had to quickly choose a closet name, I didn’t think much of it… I didn’t think ahead to having a little store, making friends, networking on social media…

To be honest, some of us ended up with really odd names. With that said…

My Poshmark Closet name has changed!

@vance289 is now…

Have you been considering a closet name change?

There are a few things we should talk about…

Your First Week on Poshmark

Your first week on Poshmark

 

So you have downloaded the Poshmark App … now what?

This is a question that seasoned Poshmark users get asked daily… with good reason! It can be overwhelming and downright confusing! I had a friend who introduced me to Poshmark and the basics on how it works… I think I stared at the app for a week before listing something. After reading everything I could about it and all the fine print, I gave it a shot.

Then, eventually,  I had a couple of super friendly users take me under their wing and answer questions along the way.

The rest was trial and error. As you read my blog posts you will find they are mostly tales of mistakes I have made and lessons I have learned.

Here is a quick and simple 5 step guide for your first 7 days…

I hope you read the guidelines in the menu portion of the app. I know, the fine print isn’t the most fun to read, but DO IT. You need to know the rules, trust me.

Let’s get to it:
