The Poshmark community is buzzing about the launch of the new Poshmark Affiliate Program. This program allows seller partners to create ads for Poshmark on their social media accounts. These are paid content. so each ad must follow specific criteria, and will be tracked by using a customized link. I am excited because I have been waiting for the launch of this program. It was easy to create my ad, and I was paid super quick. Thanks, Poshmark!
We have been jumping on the Konmari train and cleaning out a lot of stuff. One step in the process is specifically designated for books. I cleared out the bulk of my academic books before moving to New York, apt so most of these are archaeology textbooks from Jeff that I listed in my eBay store. There are also some comic books listed. You can click here to check them out!
I just got an email from eBay about a new seller update!
What’s in the Update? Among other things, there will now be an offer to buyers feature. Now, sellers will be able to send an offer to users who are watching items. There are some restrictions, and not all listings will qualify right away, but the potential for sellers to initiate offers is a nice update.
Today has been a very productive day for listings. I’ve been focusing on eBay today, since I’ve got a 200 free listings promo on my selling account and I need to take advantage of those before they expire in a couple of days.
I am excited to share with you a few of the fun and useful things I was able to source this last week.
Did you know Rae Dunn has paper plates too? I always stayed away from it because I’m scared of breaking in transit, but paper is much less likely to break on the way. Aren’t they cute? These would be perfect for family picnics and parties.
If I have a weakness, it’s organizer bags. And after watching Marie Kondo’s show, I just may keep one set for myself. These are great for house organizing, purse or backpack, crafts, etc. So versatile.
These were something I’m not entirely sure about for reselling. It can be hard to find the right buyers for collectible toys, but the price was too good to pass on. I haven’t even seen the Emma Watson version of the film.
Alright, so this one is kind of funny, take a look at these razors and tell me if you can spot the the difference:
Do you see it? The two packages cost different amounts and while I was in the store I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. I finally saw it when I got them home to take photos and list. It turns out the razor handle and lades are almost identical, but one pack has 4 cartridges and the other has 5! It was the “5 flexible blades” that threw me off. Oh well, they are both listed!
After some careful contemplations, I have decided to focus full time on Archaeo-Chic! I’ve spent about 6 months of part-time side hustling, and it just makes me so happy I figured why not continue? This means I will be much more active on this blog and my socials, so stay tuned!
I finally reached my goal of becoming a Poshmark Ambassador! I ended up being a bit late in my goal of when I reached it because I always underestimate how much time it takes to list and share. Also, there was a couple of times where I made sales from my closet and that changed my stats.
One moment I would think I was about to hit another level on the Poshmark ambassador goal list, but then I would make sales and those stats would change! For example, I hit 50 listings, but then I would sell some things either on Poshmark, or on another platform and so I would need to delete those active listings, bringing me below 50.
Obviously, getting that small setback to my goal seemed frustrating at first, but the whole point of me aiming toward becoming a Poshmark ambassador was to make more sales. Regardless of whether I was hitting the status or not, I was doing what I set out to do. If it’s the journey makes that happen, that’s alright with me! The destination isn’t really what matters, after all.
Are you a Poshmark Ambassador? How long did it take you, and do you think it was worth the work?
Looks like it’s official: starting February 7, poshmark shipping costs will increase from $6.49 to $6.79. While it’s not much of an increase, this is pretty much the opposite of what buyers and sellers wanted for the app. A first class option for small items would be ideal.
