The fees are so exorbitantly high. If I sell something too cheap I make barely anything. It's ok if you don't care about making any kind of money back & just want to get rid of your items but if someone makes a low offer I rarely accept because of the fees. I'm not rich & actually need the money from the items I sell. So honestly don't make much off this app unless I submit to the offers & basically give my items away. It's nice they help you track your shipping & give you the label but I guess in reality that's what you're paying for. But does it have to be so much? I'm going to check out other apps like this to compare fees & if there's a cheaper one I'm uninstalling.
I enjoy buying and selling through Poshmark. Shipping costs are a little high, and if you make a sale where the items weigh over 5lbs, you THE SELLER has to pick up the extra shipping cost (which I think is ridiculous). Poshmark takes 20% of your profits, which I would be more ok with if they'd change the shipping costs. There are ways for the seller to reduce the shipping cost, but they lose that from their profits. The Posh community is great and I rarely have any issue with a fellow posher, which is great in such a large community of people. The Posh support team is usually pretty good about fixing issues, that's SUPER important to me. I have found some great items for great prices and I have made some extra cash selling, so overall I'm pretty happy with this app!
As a buyer, I'm pretty happy with Poshmark. I've found some great deals on mostly designer items. However, the app itself sux!! My offers don't always update and I've missed several good sales due to it! I also don't get notified when someone responds to my comments. But leaving detailed feedback is excrutiating! I can't see what's being typed and have to keep going back & forth from my keypad to the screen to make corrections. Please fix these bugs!!
I have brought 3-4 items in 2 different purchases. One thing I do not like is making an offer but not being able to control when my m money is taken and if at all taken off my card. The items did arrive on time but having read other buyers comments that is not always the case for some. The overall quality of the items I purchased was below average 2 out of 3 items. I would not have purchased 2 out of 3 items for the prices paid if I would of seen before buying. No refund was attempted as I chalked it up to lesson learned. Don't know if I will ever purchase anything again but know I could offer better quality at a fair price so time permitting I may try selling.
As a buyer: excellent. As a seller: unimpressed. It's a fun app,but they take SUCH an inexcusable cut of your profit on items you sell. If I sell something for $4, Poshmark takes $3 and leaves you with $1. Plus the minimum charge of $6.49 for shipping is insane. You have to raise your prices to make a decent profit and it's nuts. On that $4 sale, the buyer pays the $6.49 for shipping, and out of that $10.49 transaction,you get a buck? LOL.
So I have been using this app for two years and have had a wonderful experience! However, I just got a new Android and the layout seems very bad for the Google pixel 2 because it does not show everything that an iPhone would show for the app. I'm not sure if it's just the update or if it needs to be fixed so it's more Android friendly. Just really irritating that I can't see who has liked my item when I pull that one up individually.
