There is a new Private Offer feature on Poshmark.
Let me preface this by saying that as of today, not all users have access. Once this rolls out to all users there may be tweaks and changes. If you are reading this long after the fact- some details may be different. But this is from my experience the weekend after the launch.
So what is this new feature? Well, you might be wondering why you are receiving offers on items that you have only “liked” in passing. This, my friends, is the new Private Offer Feature!
I know, I know, the Private Offer Feature has been around for a while… for BUNDLES. But this is far more useful and effective. And, yes, it lives up to the hype.
I have a few thoughts on the Stylist Match Feature on Poshmark. In case you haven’t noticed, Poshmark is making a huge deal about the launch. Why? Probably because it’s a huge deal.
There has to be something behind it all, right?
But as with every new feature, there will be lovers and haters. Let’s look back:
Sometimes a blog post subject will come along that I am excited about writing. This was one of them. Particularly because I got to do things and test things and then report what I learned. So keep that in mind. This is just an opinion piece not necessary factual and your results will vary… so like with all my posts, it’s all my thoughts and opinions that are probably wrong anyway.
This post is about Requesting to be Styled as a Buyer through the Style Match feature.
If you have experienced the new Style Me feature on Poshmark, you probably have a pretty strong opinion one way or another… Especially with the recent upgrades to the process.
So, You Want Me to Style You?
Poshmark has long been promising an update to the Suggested User Program. Today Suggested Users (and possibly others) received an email from the Poshmark CEO informing us that they that they are rolling out the new Poshmark Ambassador Program. I am updating this post as we find out more!
Some people are rule followers, some people are not. Like some of you, when I signed up to sell on Poshmark, I read every single bit of the terms and conditions. I wanted to make sure I was doing things correctly and I also wanted to know what Poshmark would be responsible for. I’m not sure what part of my personality causes me to read the fine print… but it’s how I am.
I know a lot of Poshmark users are very passionate about the rules. I am a big fan about personally following the rules but am not too concerned about other people’s business. That doesn’t mean I don’t find the new feature fascinating!
What am I talking about?
The new Review Listings Feature on Poshmark allows users to pitch in and help monitor potential rule violations.
The new Poshmark Dressing Room feature got me thinking about the features that have been added over the past couple of years. Also, the constant reference to sellers as “Stylists”. Which makes me wonder… are YOU a Poshmark Seller Stylist? Am I?
The answer for me is simple. No, I am not.
I don’t connect with that term.
I will get back to that in a minute.
First, let’s discuss the connect between the Dressing Room and being a Poshmark Seller Stylist.
For this first time, the PMHQ ladies hosted a webinar especially for Suggested Users! It was a quick 20 minute presentation this past weekend about the latest feature coming our way on Poshmark.
The POSHMARK DRESSING ROOM
Makes no sense right? It’s ONLINE… how can you try on clothes?
Well, you can’t. It’s not about trying on clothes.
Yeah, it took me like the entire 20 minutes to stop scratching my head.
I held off posting about this until it went live. Now it’s here.
An important characteristic of a successful business owner is the ability to change and adapt with the markets trends. One part of that is actually being able to recognize when something isn’t working. This can lead to a change of plans and altering your strategy.
This applies to online sellers, regardless of your preferred selling platform. You have to be cognizant of the changes and know how to make them work to your advantage. A growing company like Poshmark is an example of a company that is constantly evolving and changing. Whatever your winning strategy was last year probably isn’t cutting it this year.
Case in point, I know tons of Poshmark sellers who no longer do aggressive markdowns during “Closet Clear Out” as perhaps they once did. Why? Well, while some sellers are still finding success with marking down items because buyers are motivated to purchase with discounted shipping… personally, I am not finding it beneficial for my closet.
I don’t post about every single new feature, mostly because they are coming out so rapid fire it would be hard to keep up!
With that said, I really am only going to post about the ones that excite me.
Here are just a few that have just been released or are on the way:
- Dragging photos to change the order of them
- 8 photos instead of 4 within a listing
- Higher resolution photos
- Account Change Verifier in Poshmark Support center for security
- Upcoming- offer enhancements that give you more options
If you haven’t updated your APP go ahead and do it and if you don’t have the new features- keep checking back!
So, what am I really excited about?
