Seeing the Poshmark alert “Congrats! Your Bundle of …. has sold!” on my phone screen is on of the most beautiful sights! Now that shoppers can make an offer on bundles there is more potential to see it!
I started out editing my original post Bundles: Strange Behavior Decoded… but I decided to post a new one and add links. It’s more fun to start a new discussion about the bundle feature anyway.
Looking at the date of that post, I was actually shocked that it has been almost 2 years since the bundle feature was introduced- time has flown!
Ok, let’s get to it! The new(ish) offer on bundles feature…
I have never been a cutesy girl.
I do not wear the color pink, I HATE glitter, and the idea of sitting around with friends painting our nails makes me want to gag.
So what the heck does this have to do with Poshmark shipping?
Well, I have done my share of shopping on Poshmark and the fabulous packaging I have encountered has been quite intimidating! If you are like me and “cute” does not come naturally, it can be a bit overwhelming! The adorable wrapping paper- thank you cards- burlap bows- gingham accents- charms- the beautiful handwriting- and the FREE GIFTS!
I will never live up to this pinterest inspired standard!
If you started to have a panic attack just thinking about it- this post is for you!
Let’s talk about packaging and shipping!
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.

Making a Bundle Offer on Poshmark
For so long we have petitioned and prayed for some sort of cart to make our lives easier and IT’S HERE!
Has it helped? What I have heard most from fellow Poshers is that they have yet to sell a bundle through the feature. The Bundle feature, which was launched in July of this year, allows a buyer to combine listings and purchase without the seller having to create a new listing. This new addition has also sparked some frustration as well as odd behavior (bundle and run?). I have held off on giving my opinion for a while now- because I had not had anyone purchase using the feature either… until recently.
Here are the Pros and Cons that I see:
