I was quickly interested when I first learned about Poshmark and knew that a full Poshmark review would be good for everyone.
My family is big into buying lightly used items from online and local sources.
Buying gently-used has saved us tons of money on kids’ clothes and many other items that we use around our house.
We have also used these platforms to our advantage for selling things we no longer need and could still be useful to some other family.
After doing some poking around the e-commerce platform and talking to friends who use it extensively, this is what I learned.
What is Poshmark?
Poshmark is an online marketplace app that makes it very easy to sell used clothing and accessories online.
While it may seem very similar to eBay for the national market and Craigslist for local selling, they bring a unique experience that emphasizes social media and being mobile-friendly.
With most other platforms, your best experience will be through your desktop or laptop computer. With Poshmark, the Poshmark app is the primary means of buying and selling.
On top of that, they encourage a social environment where buyers follow poshmark sellers, types of items, or different brands that they are interested in.
The focus for the online marketplace started out on used clothing, but the emphasis is on higher-end brand name items. The brand could be anything from Adidas to Michael Kors to Zales.
As Poshmark has grown to be on of the most popular apps for online shopping, the variety of products available has expanded. There are now over 3,000 different popular brands listed on the marketplace, and the variety of products now includes new items and products well outside clothing and accessories
Is Poshmark Legit?
Yes, Poshmark is a legitimate online marketplace founded in 2011. In Internet years, this makes the company a well-established brand.
As with any site where you have individuals buying and selling, there are complaints listed online from people who feel they were not treated well. Most of this has to do with the seller not the Poshmark platform
Overall, the feedback I see and experience is positive, and the experience for buyers and sellers seems to be fair and enjoyable.
How Does Poshmark.com Work
The getting started part of Poshmark was SUPER easy for me. I signed up online (get $10 free when you sign up and use our link and the code SAVINGFREAK) and then downloaded the app to my phone. The regular computer interface was easy to learn, and the Poshmark app was even easier.
Since buying is the easiest part of the service, I started my Poshmark review there. The app walked me through picking some of my favorite brands and then started displaying them in my feed.
I was even able to filter results to my sizes, reducing the amount of time wasted looking at clothing that would not fit me. On top of that, I was able to put in sizes for members of my family so I could shop for their clothing all at once.
One of my favorite features, and what set the Poshmark app as a good idea for me, is interacting with the seller and haggling over prices directly through the platform.
Since the back and forth is part of the platform, it is much easier than through text or email on Craigslist and better than the bidding with no interaction on Ebay.
If a buyer receives a product that is not as described, they have several days to notify Poshmark through the app, print a label, and return the item.
One final thing that every buyer needs to understand is Posh Parties. When you first log into the app or website, you are in the Poshmark showroom.
A party allows you to focus on a specific personal style, brand, or type of clothing. These parties can expedite your search for specific items.
Think of being able to focus your entire searching around a types of designer items or even as specific as Louis Vuitton designs.
There are now even third-party Posh party bots in development that allow you to easily search the different Posh parties.
Like many red-blooded men, I tend to wear my clothing until it disintegrates off my body. Not surprisingly, I do not have enough extra clothing that would be good to sell on Poshmark.
Instead, I sought advice from some more stylish friends who get new clothing more frequently than some people change toothbrushes.
Every seller can set up a Poshmark closet or boutique, take pictures of items using your phone, and upload them to the Poshmark app. This works like your consignment store.
Like social platforms spread information, the key to selling your stuff quickly is to get a good number of followers to your profile/closet.
Like the buyers, sellers have a window to cancel a transaction and have up to seven days to ship. Most sellers try to ship quickly and limit buyer wait time, but the Poshmark platform doesn’t penalize for any shipping within the window.
Poshmark is not cheap, but it isn’t outrageous either. Any item from a seller that is less than $15 incurs a $2.95 charge and a 20% charge if it is over $15.
What you get for these fees is a straightforward online platform to sell your stuff, exposure to motivate buyers, and pre-negotiated flat rate shipping through the post office. This takes any of the annoying shipping questions out of the equation.
The ease of shipping evens out the fees you pay when compared to the lower fees but no standard shipping or returns through Ebay.
Other Poshmark Services
As we completed our Poshmark review we found additional features on the platform that make your shopping easier and safer. These benefits include:
The Posh Protect policy guarantees that you will receive a full refund if your purchase never ships, or it does not match the description given.
To take advantage of the policy, you have to inspect any item you receive immediately. If it does not meet the description, you can reject that item, get a USPS priority mail shipping label at no cost, and ship it back to the seller.
For any luxury item over $500, they will inspect and authenticate the item for no charge. Instead of the item shipping directly to you, it ships to Poshmark’s authentication, to verify its authenticity.
For a limited time, Posh Authenticate items will also qualify for free shipping.
This is a great feature to help potential buyers feel good about a high-end purchase and sellers who want to get top dollar. For example, if I were selling an engagement ring or other luxury items, having a third party verify the authenticity, and prove I’m not selling counterfeit items, is only going to drive up the price.
One of the main goals of Poshmark is to create a community where people work together. This mentality means there are people that do not work for Poshmark willing to help and guide you through the platform.
It is a unique online marketplace experience.
Pros of Poshmark
The Poshmark app is one of the easiest to use shopping apps in the Apple or Google Play app stores. The pictures are easy to see, the prices are obvious, the filtering is simple, and the back and forth over prices is very straight forward.
The prices can be as much as 70% off of the retail price, beating the regular price of places like TJ Maxx, Plato Closet, or a consignment shop.
Even setting up a Poshmark account is easy through the app or online.
People looking to buy and sell are going to be very pleased with how easy Poshmark makes their transactions.
Cons of Poshmark
From a seller’s perspective, the big drawback to Poshmark is the high fees. They are much more expensive than Ebay, which has lower fees, and Craigslist, which has no fees.
This is mostly made up for by the shipping fee being added to the price, a relaxed selling environment, and ease of use through your Android or iPhone app.
The other drawback that needs to be addressed is customer support. Poshmark strives to have an open marketplace. That openness comes with some understanding that things will not go 100% smoothly.
Most of the Poshmark customer service complaints that I have seen come from a much early period, but there are some concerns about complaints not getting answered quickly.
Many times the complaints are people that didn’t follow the directions on the Poshmark website. So there is a little buyer beware and make sure to follow the rules.
Strategies for Getting the Best Prices
Just like any traditional marketplace, there are insider tips for how to get the best prices. Since my wife and I have both been making purchases, here are some ways to get an even lower price on your next Poshmark purchase.
Poshmark is a social marketplace, so being social can pay off big. Participate in parties, follow people, make contact with sellers who have stuff you like regularly.
All the socializing only pays off when you are looking to get the best price or to sell your stuff quickly.
Most sellers will offer you a discount if you purchase three or more items from them. This typically results in 10-15% off your purchase price of each item.
On top of that, you get only one shipping charge for all three or more items. You save on the top price and the shipping, all for bundling a few items from the same sellers.
Whenever you purchase an item where you may want to buy more, you should also favorite that item. It can clue the platform into your style choices, and you will get suggestions of other similar or complementary items when you check your feed.
You should also favorite items that you are considering buying, because the seller may decide to lower the price in general or sweeten the deal with a private offer.
We have gotten as much as a 30% off private offer on an item we were considering buying but had not yet pulled the trigger. This strategy can rack up some serious savings.

Jo Johnson says
I just bought a skirt that seller advertised as medium and showed on an adult model. The tag had a plastic self-stick sticker stuck on it marked “M.” The skirt has a 24″ waist, which is an XXS or XS, size 00-2, depending upon which industry chart you consult. Poshmark sided with seller despite my pictures and measurements, saying that seller accurately represented size because the item has a size “M” sticker on it. Following that logic, a seller could sell Barbie doll clothes to you as adult clothes as long as seller sticks a women’s size label on it. Buyer beware – ask a million questions before buying and know your legal rights: return fraudulent items to sellers and dispute the charge on your credit. card. Don’t believe Poshmark that you cannot return without its consent.
I have had huge problems with Posh mart’s customer service. I had changed my address to my new one a year ago and deleted the old one. I found for some strange reason 3 items going to my old address! They would NOT answer my emails. I had to get a friend go over to my old address and get the packages. No I have to pay shopping again to get them to my house. Three boxes and still no reply from posh mart
I just started on PoshMark so I have not sold anything yet. I did however need to send an email and I heard back from them within 24 hours with the help I needed. I do agree that the fees are high so I am weighing which items I will sell on their site compared to those that would be more profitable for me to sell locally.
Left out of all of this is the shipping charge of $6.49. There are a great number of items where the actual shipping charge is $1.00 or less. Though this charge is paid by the customer it is in the overall pricing and reduces the economic value of the transaction. Example, If I list an item for sale at $20.00 it is likely that the customer and I will settle on a price less than that. Assume that the final price is $16.00, I pay Poshmark 20% or $3.20. I receive $12.80. The customer pays $16.00 plus $6.49 or $22.49. If the actual shipping is $1.00 the costs should be $17.00. The customer will not pay $22.49, even if they do, for $12.80 I have photoed, listed, wrapped, bubble wrap, box, tape, gone to the post office. If I purchased the item to resale the $12.80 is reduced by amount I paid.
I have only been a PoshMARK buyer so far-the fees are too high for me to consider selling-but I’ve been very satisfied with what I have received so far. My only quibbles are these:
1. I wish sellers would include measurements when they are selling clothing, and that I didn’t have to keep asking,
2. PoshMARK should end listings after they have been up for a certain amount of time-I see items all the time that the seller seems to be ignoring or perhaps has forgotten about, because people are asking questions about them, and not getting answers, and
3. Sellers should be expected to mail items out in a more timely manner-PoshMARK gives them a two-week window, and I think that’s a little too long. A week would be better.
4. I wish the site were a little easier to navigate-if you click on something to look at it, when you go back, you are back at the top of the list of items and have to scroll all the way back down to where you left off….also I wish there were more options to narrow down a search.
But I’ve been very happy with the items I have received-I ask questions BEFORE I buy, so maybe that’s one reason?-and I have found the prices to be better than Ebay, in some cases. I also like the flat shipping fee, so I don’t feel that I’m spending an arm and a leg just to ship one thing. The lack of a return policy doesn’t bother me-once again, I ask any questions I have before buying something, and haven’t needed to consider a return. Overall, I’ve been happy to have an alternative to Ebay as far as buying goes-now, if only PoshMARK would lower their fees-I might be willing to give selling a whirl!
On the other side of the coin… I’ve had pretty good luck with Poshmark as a seller and buyer. I do agree that their customer service leaves something to be desired, however, overall it’s been a profitable place for me to sell my gently used clothing. I have also purchased some pretty amazing things. Just do your homework before you agree to buy and if there are not enough, ask for more pics or info. The seller wants to sell so if they are reluctant, run in the other direction. 😀

I’ve been selling and buying on Poshmark since November 2017. I’m pleased with the format and have been successful in both. Selling is easy with no cost until you sell an item. I like the ability to negotiate the price as a seller and buyer. Able to use USPS boxes free of charge and order online all different sizes. Building your followers is a bit time consuming but worth it. All in all I love this site. Very easy to narrow down what you’re looking for using the filters. I highly recommend Poshmark (@splitmountain).
After purchasing a few things and selling many, I am in general agreeement with the article: poshmark seller fees do totally suck, but at least there are savings to be had as a shopper.
My advice is to like an item before purchasing; sellers will often give private discounts. If you get nothing, make an offer (or simply make an offer from the get-go).
Look Like Famous says
I have used Poshmark to buy but mostly sell and its a good platform. I have had very very few incidences of bad buyers on comparison to Amazon where there is a HUGE amount of bad buyers/scams. Whenever I had to seek assistance from Poshmark they always responded within one day. I have sold about 3K+ in one year but it does take effort.
While I believe the stuff I sell is unique and may sell themselves there is also a certain element where you need to be available to respond to questions on fit.
I like Poshmark but the sales are slow in comparison to eBay or Amazon. One seller referred to it as a trinkle of cash and I agree. We are a boutique.
My issue with Poshmark is being when being the seller, I am unable to comment or get in contact with the buyer. Multiple times I have not been home, or on Vacation when an item sells. The buyer can retract their order after 3 days, which then I am told not to ship the item though it says on my end that the item is sold. The fact that I cannot get in contact as a seller is RIDICULOUS. Especially when I am actively trying to sell my clothes. Poshmark’s communication system lacks majorly.
Lori K says
I’m new to this. How does the seller get their payment from a Poshmark sale? I want to be sure I’ll get paid before I send the goods to the buyer.
There is a huge selling-point FOR selling on Poshmark that people aren’t considering here. Their advertising. eBay doesn’t help you out much at all … and if you’re not willing or able to ship within one day you’re not considered a top seller and then they actually hinder you. Poshmark, on the other hand, advertises their site and items (yes, even your items to customers who have faved things and then possibly forgotten about them – and makes suggestions for other things too) outside of the site. They advertising on Google Shopping, which is huge. Last I checked, eBay quit paying to do so, and frankly that’s a huge market lost to the seller. eBay is TOO hands-on, making you feel like it’s not your shop but that you work for them. Amazon, same thing. Posh is not only succeeding, but they’re really onto something and I think they’ll only continue to grow.
I have enjoyed purchasing on Poshmark for the most part but every once in a while there is a seller who just doesn’t hold up her end of the deal once a sale has been made. I have had this happen now 4 times and it is very disappointing, not to mention ANNOYING!!!! And when it happens twice in a single month….well, you can imagine how maddening it is. I often suspect that sellers second guess their negotiations and decide to reneg. Right now I am awaiting shipment of a pair of shoes that I have been watching for about a year. The seller finally reduced them to a price that was acceptable to me but I am now suspecting that because I tried to negotiate with her a couple of times she is holding that against me and will never ship. She has received a reminder from Poshmark and I have posted twice to her. Personally I think that Poshmark should take some kind of action when a seller backs off from a sale. After all, a buyer isn’t allowed to reneg once she hits that buy button.
I am a big fan of being able to offer the lower rankings in these situations. I agree that Poshmark needs to do a little more to punish the sellers who don’t hold up their end of an agreed price.
I have personally had great luck with sellers. So far we have only gotten one article of clothing that didn’t detail a major problem.
I have been a Poshmark seller and buyer I’m even a posh ambassador and a top rated seller . Poshmark has been sloppy lately last week I received someone else’s package I notified them took them a week to get back to me with a return label to that poor seller that posh generates the label . This week I had shoes for sale and apparently so did another posh same identical shoes and it was a party so I was watching TV and I saw an offer on my shoes I accepted oops it wasn’t my shoes it was someone’ else’s so I said okay I’ll cancel and explain nope 👎 they wouldn’t let me mind you I’m selling the same shoes so I commented on the girl bossy Lou and said what happened she ignored me I e-mailed posh numerous times with an attorney letter ( my fiancé is an attorney) that girl waited the seventh day then shipped those shoes . I intercepted the package, my bank said they could do something after pending so I have to call bank refuse package if the intercept doesn’t work . My fiancé overnighted a letter to their headquarters about bank fraud. There is NO CUSTOMER SERVICE let me be clear the designer purses are fake they will ask me to review them that’s how they roll you as a Poshmark ambassador get to decide what’s fake . Just Beware . I have decided to close my closet. I’ve bought some good stuff and I’m a 5 star rated seller but this really ticked me off by Poshmark
I find as a seller Poshmark is barbaric. They charge us 20% and have a BIG ZERO customer service for us. The constant sharing of your closet, the low ballers, and the time you have to put into it does not pay out. I have a wonderful closet with all quality clothing but their are way to many sellers on Poshmark and it’s getting cut throat. Someone needs to come up with a better platform and blow this company out of the water.
They even charge hundreds of dollars to go to Poshfest. lol!!!
Matilda Forte says
This is a great review, from a seller/ buyer perspective, this review is very fair. I love it. I am a new posher (since August 2018) and to this day, I have purchased many items, all came timely and exactly as advertised. As a seller, ( a new one at that) I have already made a few hundred dollars, selling items that i have spent money in the past buying, but either never wore, wore once, or no longer fit into. Poshmark is awesome! A big part of the awesome is how VERY SIMPLE it is to list , print and ship. They do the math for you , pretty much, so to me, the fees are not a problem, because, for one, i dont have to deal with complex calculations and label/ shipping mathematics, all I have to do is open my email, click on the label, press print. That simple.
However, a seller , to be successful, will need to put in the effort. As with most things, the more effort you put into your gig, the more your hard work pays off!
The best tips that I have learned so far, as a seller on poshmark, are #1- share, #2- follow,#3-party & # 4 – share share share follow follow follow and party some more!
List your items with integrity, disclose flaws , other issues that might become issues if a buyer was not aware of, with the sold item(s) , I even iron each thing , and that itself has helped me tremendously in regards to a detailed inspection of the item, to ensure quality and integrity. Nobody likes to feel hoodwinked or cheated. Sure, most things are 2nd hand, but that doesn’t justify anybody to be treated as #2… get it?
Anyway, thanks for this review, your right on! To anybody debating on whether or not poshmark is a safe buying or selling platform, i will say, give it a try. Maybe just try selling a few handfuls of stuff at first, do the work , i,e; share, follow, party- & see how it goes for you! Poshmark is a great place to put your feet forward into, they make it pretty darn simple and easy for both buying and selling. Great app! I love poshmark!
Carolyn Melton says
When you have a complaint about an item received broken there does not seem to be much the buyer can do about it and there fore you lost your money and I don’t think I will buy again
PM only makes sense if your buying/selling high end items, theyre just below tradesy imo. I only use posh to buy shoes or bundles items so the ship cost is worth it. I used to sell more, but the fees are too high now. Still it beats ebay!
Paul Moyer says
You have to reject the item and ship it back. I will add this advice to the article so people know what to do as a buyer. My family has done this twice now with no problems.
Paul Moyer says
The money goes into escrow account from the buyers payment methods. Once the buyer receives and accept the item the seller gets paid.
Dallas posher says
Poshmark is great for shoes. I have bought several clothing items and turned out either defective, not fitting or not liking – which I can’t return. However, I have purchased the most amazing high end brand shoes for VERY CHEAP and all have been either NEW or almost new. I will continue to buy shoes.
Nancy H. says
Do the clothes have to be name brand? There are many nice clothes that are not name brand, that I’d like to sell. And I’m sure there are people who’d like to buy them. What about shoes? I have many Clark brand shoes, that I’ve never worn. Are we allowed to sell shoes?
Nancy serpico says
Second time I ordered from two different sellers and did NOT receive order! Please advise???
Paul Moyer says
You can nudge the seller to get them to respond. AFter that, if they don’t ship within the designated amount of time, you can have the money that is held in escrow returned to you.
Paul Moyer says
You can sell just about anything on Poshmark. I have personally bought shoes and a bunch of different items include shoes, jewelry, clothing. I even bought Legos one time.
I may be the odd one here, but the haggling is what I hate about Poshmark! It means I have to prove higher than what I really want for the item, so buyers who don’t like to haggle find my prices too high on Postmark. My prices are lower on other sites where I don’t entertain offers, so buyers who comparison shop won’t buy it on Poshmark.
Haggling is senseless and silly to me, just like “free shipping” which just means the shipping is added to the item price. I guess it’s a mental trick that works on some buyers, but personally I find it silly.
Jen Ridenour says
I’ve been an avid Posher for several months now. I Love It! I’ve purchased $100 boots and shoes for $20. My latest deal was a long, white, Eddie Bauer goose down coat, regular price $300, my price $35! It is Beautiful! I try to keep the footwear to the $20 and under price point and so far, I’ve been very lucky that everything has fit. I stick with certain brands that I know will fit as expected.
I’ve been tempted to try selling some items and one of these days, I’ll give it a go. For now, I’m a very satisfied Buyer.
My advice, blow up the pictures, ask questions, ‘like’ things and don’t low ball the sellers. Happy Poshing!
Julie Ann Dougery says
I love Poshmark soo much!! I buy all the time and find the best deals and exactly what I am looking for a fraction of the price!!
You CANNOT sell just about anything on Poshmark. It’s for clothing, shoes, and fashion accessories. Not toys, not kitchen items, not books, not candles, JUST FASHION. So sick of sellers turning Posh into a garage sale. Post that stuff on Ebay or Mercari.
As a new seller on poshmark I like it so far. Its fast and easy to list and after listing a few items I had hundreds of followers. Its fun going to their closet to see what they have, how they display products, and follow them back. I also got a great deal on some jeans. (sunfloweracres)
B Lee says
New to poshmark and really loving it, for buying. I plan to sell in about a month or so (I’ve got a 3 week vacay planned and don’t want to start selling & be absent).
For buying I find the prices, quality, and selection much better than Ebay. It also seems that poshmark is real people, whereas Ebay has been inundated with overseas manufacturers and that is a huge thing for me. I want to reduce reuse recycle, not buy newly, poorly manufactured crap 🙂
I like that these real people selling can answer specific questions! That being said (and this is true for preowned items on Ebay as well), WHY would a seller not go ahead and provide measurements in the listing?!? This drives me up the wall! Knee length to you may not be knee length to me. A medium in one brand is a small in another. Ankle length pants may hit me mid calf. C’mon seriously?!
Joy Bailey says
Starting to sell in Poshmark has never been easy. I struggled too much on how to boost my sales. But when I learned that following, self-sharing and sharing back other closets help a lot in getting potential sales, I also started to love Poshmark as a selling platform which also builds community for sellers not like other platforms. Hiring VA for me is never a bad idea, I have hired one from a sharing platform and I can really say that it really helped me to grow my business and is still helping me until now. I am just so happy that I joined Poshmark!!
Erica Carr says
Your article is very comprehensive and informative!
I wanted to reach out to you and see if you would be willing to guest post on our blog? It covers mainly of when is the best time to share and follow in Poshmark and the importance of staying active. We are actually a Virtual Assistant Company that helps Poshmark sellers sell their listings.
Eitherway, you are doing a great job!
Paul Moyer says
Thanks for your opinion. I see tons of people selling all sorts of things. I even bought Legos for my kids.
poshmark seller says
I appreciate this post Paul! I am a part time clothes reseller on the side – I like to find deals at thrift stores and flip them. It’s fun and it can be a useful additional income stream. The most inconvenient downside however is managing all of the inventory.. if you’re not careful you end up with a monstrous pile of clothes in your garage and closet. Regardless, the process of selling clothes and making money has been fun!
I just started shopping on Poshmark I have left questions for several sellers regarding their products And also put in offers without ever getting a response. I don’t know if this is normal or if they are even still selling the items. It feels like they posted the items and walked away from the app forever. Is this normal ?
Paul Moyer says
This can be a problem with any platform where individuals are selling. On the app they list the items that have been most recently posted and on each item there is a notation of the last time the person updated the listing. Sticking to Poshmark listings that have been recently purchased or updated will yield better results.
The other strategy I use is to make a low ball offer on listing that have not been updated recently. The offer expires after a couple of days so if they don’t respond you know it is a dead listing.
I’M A NEW BUYER AND FOUND A SOUTHPOLE PARKA FOR $35.00. DELIVERED IN 3 DAYS. IM VERY HAPPY WITH THE JACKET, BETTER THAN I EXPECTED.
Carol Keith says
I went on Poshmark, looking for shoes for a friend who recently had surgery and couldn’t afford new, name brand shoes that were suggested by her Dr. as Born, brand. As I found several I thought I would sign up and see if she liked any. About 5min after signing up, I had over 30 followers with a constantly growing list. Mt first question is…who are these people and why are they following me? One answered a question including this odd remark about how I was such a great friend of hers. I have no idea who she is, so could someone help me with that? I left a message with Posh Mark and so far haven’t received a reply. I don’t like the idea of shopping with tons of vultures hanging over my online actions, am I wrong?
Paul Moyer says
Poshmark is geared toward social shopping so many of the sellers are aggressive in trying to get people to follow them. One strategy is to friend new buyers. You can just ignore these people. They won’t be given access to anything you are doing until you allow them to.
Hi,I only have a few things I want to sell,but if its really a “buyers’ market”and not really worth it to list very nice or RARE,NO BRAND NAME ,items(I have a real fur cape, but not “brand name”,vintage) then I’m in the wrong place. I have “unusual”items that are “one of a kind”and there are not more.Also,I have some very “vintage”items. If I tried to sell very old costume jewelry,is this the place?Jade necklace?(green but real.)I have vintage (for example)costume jewelry from the 60’s,or scarves?I also have silk clothing.But they aren’t “brand”,or “trendy”they are vintage.And,I believe in listing measurements.Am I in the wrong place?Thanks!

I am a Poshmark Seller. I am so tired of Lowballers till I don’t know what to do. I take pride in trying to sell a quality product, however there are some buyers on Poshmark that just want something for nothing. No I don’t list items at retail, even if it’s new with tags, however buyers offer little to nothing for these items. Even with a very low price listing, they want more off. I have sold item in which I’ve only made $6.93, and the low offers keep coming. I have items new with tags for $65 which retail for $138 and still I get offers for $15 or $16 dollars. This is unreal. If you post what you will make on a sale, it’s taken negatively or tacky. I have UGG Boots practically brand new and still lowballers come. Yes I know I have a right to decline and I do, but this is so ridiculous, especially with the fees that go to Poshmark. I love this sight but, between the lowballers and people that ask for additional measurements and never buy, it’s never ending. Just venting.
