3) Stock up on a variety of trending brands.
Capture shopper interest by adding trending brands to your closet. Keep an eye out for social media trends.
4) Relist and Reposh
The best thing you can do for your closet is to list (or relist) items as often as possible when sales are slow on Poshmark. Not all Poshmark sellers have time to source for new items to sell, but you can still keep your closet fresh by relisting your old posts.
Use the reposh settings to list new items in your closet. Reposhed listings sell 30% faster than fresh listings.
If you’re worried about deleting an item that has more than 20 likes, it doesn’t matter. Relist it. People like items for different reasons, but if they are serious about buying something, they’ll buy it or make an offer.
5) Make your Closet Stand Out
Have you ever bought something on Poshmark and it was just stuffed in the mailer with no attention to detail? Package your items with care, and add a cute note with a discount and invite them to shop your closet again.
Branding is everything! Here are some cute mailers:
6) Accept the offer!
If you’re not selling anything, it might be time to start embracing your offers. Send an Offer to Likers or counter those lowball offers.
If someone sends a lowball offer, try sending them a message first. Tell them about your counteroffer and try to negotiate a deal.
Most buyers are also sellers, so they understand the process. Everybody wants a good deal!
7) Update your Photos
This is no secret, but great images help sell clothes. Take a peek at your closet and update any images that aren’t doing the items justice. If you don’t have a light kit, take advantage of natural light and shoot your pictures in the morning.
Create a cohesive theme for your closet and switch between flat-lays or modeling photos to display the dress best or top you want to sell.
Tip: Don’t rush through this process. Make sure the photos will capture someone’s attention and get them to stop scrolling. The picture is the first thing that shoppers are going to see; make sure it’s a good one!
8) Add keywords
Keywords are going to help you get noticed. When sales are slow, update product descriptions and listings, and be as descriptive as possible. Just like a good photo will captivate a shopper’s attention, the right keywords will lead shoppers directly to your closet. Describe the item as thoroughly as possible.
Think of words you would use to search for an item. For example, your post could end up buried in the sea of posts if you use the description “black top.” But add, “Free People black lace bell sleeve button-down top,” and you might have a better chance of showing up first in the results.
9) Review your Sales Report
See what brands are selling and what brands are not. Batch content for your IG account or find new ways to attract shoppers to your closet.

Focus on your social media strategy. Connect your Pinterest account to your closet to get more exposure and use the offer to likers button to offer a discount to shoppers. Experiment with different marketing techniques to see what works for your online reselling business.
10) Lower Prices
When you lower prices, there is always that one person who will offer you less. I try to be as reasonable as possible with my prices, but sometimes it’s not worth losing a sale over a few dollars.
Consider how much you paid for the item, how long you’ve had it and how many offers you’ve received. If it’s been sitting in your closet for over a year, think about offering free shipping and accept the next offer.

I hope you found these Poshmark selling tips helpful. If you don’t want to source new items before you sell what you already have, relist and update your listings.
