The Poshmark Series: How to make money with Poshmark

A few months ago I was scrolling through the #debtfree hashtag on Instagram and I stumbled upon a few people who were paying off their debt by selling/re-selling clothes through Poshmark. I remembered downloading Poshmark years ago but being so confused by it that I immediately deleted the app.

How to start selling clothes on Poshmark //

I decided to give it another shot and one day before work in the middle of February, I uploaded 5 or 6 items to my Poshmark closet and got to work following people in hopes of gaining a following, even though I had no idea what that meant or how it would help.

It’s been a crazy, exhausting two months since then and this is how well it’s gone for me so far:


I keep encouraging my friends to start selling their stuff on Poshmark, and I’ve been getting so many questions that I realized it’s worth it to share on my blog, because I want to see people succeed.

This is going to be broken down into a zillion few blog posts. Here’s the list; you’ll notice the last blog post is for questions – please hit me up with your questions throughout this series, and I’ll answer them in the last blog post!

If you don’t have Poshmark, here’s a quick overview. It’s an app (and site, but functions primarily as an app) where you can post and sell clothes OR you can shop and buy clothes. It’s easy peasy lemon squeezy kanye yeezy. I added that last part in. You can download the app here and use the code BWCTE and you’ll get $5 to spend (and so will I!). You can shop my closet here:

    OMG. You have made a ton of money!! I have been cleaning out my closet but storing everything in tubs until I could decide what to do with everything. I was using ThredUp but you basically get pennies.

    I’m excited to read this! I looked into selling my clothes on ThredUp, but their website shows they’re super picky… so I wonder if I would have better odds through Poshmark!

    I just cleaned out my closet yesterday and have 3 bags of clothes! I was going to donate them but maybe I’ll give this a try for some of them! I guess my questions would be, how long does it take to list something? I tried ebay once and I felt like there were so many steps to get things listed. Also, do they prefer brand name stuff? I don’t have much of that! 🙂
