Poshmark Selling Tips

Tips for Making Fast Sales on Poshmark


Everyone knows that in this age of social shopping (and selling), efficiency is crucial to your success! This is especially true on Poshmark’s platform. Here are two of my most successful methods I’ve used over the years to ensure sales come rolling in everyday:


– Use Proper Keywords & Descriptions for Listings –



There’s nothing worse than seeing a gorgeous covershot of an item only to see the title is poorly written as “ cute dress” or “nice handbag”… there’s very little chance that someone searching Poshmark to buy a new handbag will ever find those listings…and they very well may be the perfect item someone was ready to buy! 

Instead, fully describe the style, color, shape/silhouette of an item in your listing. Additionally, make full use of the category and subcategory selections as you edit your new listing. Many buyers use these search features to quickly find exactly what they are looking for! 

BONUS: if you purchase inventory from WILA, you can use the exact title we provide since we always make sure the best keywords are included so you can easily find what you’re shopping for!


– Use The Price Drop Tool –



This tool was recently upgraded to have two options: public offers and private offers to likes (the people who already like your item). Both are useful and will reach people interested in your item.

– Private Offer to Likes –



Personally, I find myself using the Private Offer option much more because it allows you to reach the people who are already actually interested in this item directly. You are required to offer a 10% minimum discount with at least $1.50 off shipping costs (there is an auto calculator included in this feature!) It will send an in app notification as well as an email to all users who like this item and will remain active for 24 hours unless the user declines. 

    – Do note that users will only receive the price offer notification if you offer it 10% lower than your previous offers. However, that rule resets after 90 days…but most likely you’ll already have sold out by then! Also, if you ‘edit’ the listing after you’ve sent out the offers it will mark the offer invalid. So make sure your listing is ready to go and let it sit while the offer is live. You can still share the listing, just don’t ‘edit’ it!

Generally, I’d use this private offer feature after the listing has received 5+ likes or if the listing has been live for at least 3 days. You can use it as soon as you receive 1 like if you want, but I like to wait a minimum of 24 hours to see if they will just buy at full price. To use this feature, go to the listing, scroll down to price drop in the right bottom corner and select “Private Offer”. 

– Public Price Drop –


If you’ve already offered the private 10% off to everyone who likes the item and you’re still waiting for the 90 days to pass before you are eligible to remake the offer, you can always use the traditional Price Drop Tool. This means you will be lowering the public listing price by at least 10%. Everyone who likes the item will receive the app and email notification at this point, regardless of how long ago you sent them a private offer. My advice on this: don’t use this unless it’s been a month or so since you sent out your private offers. You don’t want to bombard people with offers, you’d like to use this last option as a kind reminder that “Hey I’m still willing to give you a deal…” without being like “Helllo, I’m giving you a good deal – buy my stuff!”


I hope you’ll give these tactics a shot when looking to ramp up your Poshmark sales – they have definitely worked for me if I keep up with them consistently. Let me know in the comments your own ideas on how you make sales fast!



  • Go through your shop and revamp your listing titles to have proper keywords
  • Carefully look through your listings to add appropriate categories, subcategories, and colors selected
  • Start using the Private Offer to Likes tool after you’ve revamped!

Poshmark Selling Tips

What To Do After You Purchase From the Poshmark Wholesale Portal

Congrats, you’ve taken the first steps towards curating your boutiques style by purchasing WILA wholesale items! First off – Thanks for your order!! What’s next? Follow these steps to start making sales right away!


1. List The Items 

As soon as you’ve placed your order with us, screenshot our photos and list it as “Coming Soon” in your shop. We always allow use of our photos after purchase – this makes it easier for you to list instantly and Since all of our photos are professionally photographed, they’ll add a clean look to your boutique. (How to screenshot on iPhone/Android)


2. Set the Price

On your “Coming Soon” listing, we suggest setting the ‘original price’ to the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) and the “sell for”price at a crazy high amount. (For example $1,000) This will ensure no one will purchase before you have the item in hand ready to ship and will allow you to start gathering likes on your new styles!


3. Use Keywords in the Title

In your title, use an emoji after the words “COMING SOON” in your title to catch people’s attention so that they can like the items and wait for you to announce the arrival of the new styles being ready for purchase. While your at it, add a full description of the item & don’t forget to mention that you have a Bundle Discount offer!



4: Mark the Brand as WILA

Don’t forget to mark the item for sale as the brand WILA! Since we are an official brand in Poshmark, every so often there are WILA branded parties for the morning slot (9am PST) you can share into for extra exposure to make more sales!


5: Share, Share, Share!

Even though your items may be in transit to you from our warehouse, take advantage of the fact that you have your listing all set up and start sharing it alongside your available items. This way you can continue to collect likes until you announce its arrival!


6: Accept Order & Leave a Love Note

As soon as you receive your package, ensure the order is correct and “accept”your order via the app. We love hearing your feedback and sharing your 5 star Love Notes with all of our customers, so please do leave feedback when you accept your orders!


7: Announce Arrival & Drop Price

After you’ve confirmed your order to be correct, it’s time to announce the arrival of your new styles and start making sales! Chance your title from “Coming Soon”to “Now In”, “New”,or “Now Available” to let people know the item may now be purchased. Personally, I like to use all caps and a colorful emoji to grab people’s attention! If you have anyone who commented asking to know of the arrival, don’t forget to tag them and let them know it’s available for purchase now!


Use the Price Drop tool (go to the listing in your shop, scroll to “Price Drop” button on bottom left hand corner) to adjust the sale price down to the correct MSRP. For those of you who are new to this feature, it will automatically send an in app notification and an email to every user who has liked that specific item letting them know it’s available and ready for purchase! Additionally, it will offer anyone who purchases the item within the first hour discounted shipping!


When you are first setting up your listing, don’t forget YOU CAN USE OUR PHOTOS & the wording of our title to make sure it has all the right keywords to attract buyers and work within the Poshmark system. We often can provide sizing charts upon request, so don’t forget to ask for those after your purchase from us so you can also post those on your listing!


By the way, if you’d like to stock this sweater in your shop you can purchase a pack via the Wholesale Portal here!
