Poshmark isn’t only a place to sell your merchandise. However, you’ll undoubtedly want to do a lot of it. But after you make the sale, then what?
It’s time to start thinking about shipping and packaging. It’s critical to consider how you package and ship your items to the customer.
Ideally, you’d want them to become repeat customers. The more professional you are with your packaging and shipping of Poshmark items, the more likely customers will buy from you again.
We’ve put together a useful list of FAQs about shipping and packaging your Poshmark purchases.
Is there a maximum size for the box that may be used?
Poshmark packages can only be a certain amount of space. You are issued with a shipping label depending on the size you pick. The label is designed to fit boxes up to this size. The item will be returned to you if you exceed that size. To prevent this, thoroughly measure the item so that you know exactly what size box will be required. Bear in mind that you do not want to squeeze an item into an overly tiny box.
Poshmark labels have a maximum weight restriction. Any weight beyond five pounds necessitates a new label, which you may get for free.
What are the shipping charges for Poshmark?
In most cases, the customer will pay for shipping after acquiring a Poshmark item. In rare circumstances, the seller may offer to add shipping if they attempt to sweeten the bargain and secure the sale. The shipping cost is $6.79.
What sort of Poshmark boxes should you use?
Due to the fact that priority shipping boxes are suitable, there is no need to pay for boxes. These are available for purchase online and will be delivered right to your front door. Make sure you get enough boxes if you expect a lot of sales, particularly during the holidays, so that you don’t have to scramble for more because you’ve run out.
Is there anything I can do if the shipping takes longer than I thought it would?
According to the Poshmark website, the seller has two days to ship the item once it is sold. There are seven days when a buyer can cancel a sale with a seller if they don’t get their item out. The item will be removed from Poshmark’s system if it has not been sent out by the end of the allotted 21-day grace period for sale. The tale’s lesson is to release such items as quickly as possible. When it comes to impressing your customers, this makes a big difference. Not to mention, taking too long to ship anything out might result in a terrible review, which would then undermine your Poshmark reputation.
What happens if an item purchased on Poshmark is damaged during shipment?
Something terrible may happen. The only thing you can do is that, you can make sure the object is well-packaged and has enough of a “cushion” around it to avoid harm. You may always claim with the USPS if anything goes wrong.
Is it possible to ship a Poshmark item in a bag?
This is a common query among poshers, particularly new vendors. You may ship items in a bag. Polymailers are relatively effective in this regard. Always bear in mind, however, that the object you are shipping must be adequately safeguarded. A Ziploc bag, for example, may be used to protect an object from damage during transit if you’re shipping it in a box. There is no such thing as being overly careful or having too much security for the object in the issue. This is a good thing for you to do because it means you go above and beyond for your customers when it comes to shipping. This means that they will appreciate it and hopefully become a repeat customer.
