Well, the time has arrived. I knew it would happen eventually, and I have finally hit the point where selling on four platforms is just not feasible. For a while, I have been on eBay, Mercari, Depop, and Poshmark. I have decided to pull my inventory completely from Depop and most of it from eBay for now and will focus on Poshmark and Mercari for making sales.
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!
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.
This is huge for Depop. Until the Bag feature, buyers would have to message sellers asking for a custom listing. This put a lot of extra work for both parties on just one sale.
I can’t wait to see how this new feature works out!

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.
Since I’m selling on multiple platforms right now, it’s important for me to spend my time wisely. I took time to revise my Depop shop this week. Depop was actually the first platform I used for selling, and I started there as a buyer.
What I like about Depop:
You can post video! This is great for really showing the special features or issues with an item.
Shipping is reasonable for small items, and you can choose your own shipping costs. You have the option to ship with Depop for flat fees, or organize your own shipping. You can also ship Internationally. By choosing your own shipping.
What I think could be better:
I would love to be able to post more than 4 photos. Some items really ask for more than a few angles, and I also like to include pictures of tags.
Bundles are a thing on Depop, but these still have to be requested and listed as custom orders which is labor intensive for both buyers and sellers
What’s have I sold in my Depop shop?
Feedback from Happy Shoppers
What’s for Sale in My Depop shop?
Right now, I have only been listing smaller items in my shop like jewelry and accessories. This is because of shipping costs. With the small size shipping at $4.50, I am able to offer free shipping to my customers occasionally. While I can provide the shipping for everything, I like being able to offer the Free Ship across all items I have listed in Depop and it just wasn’t economical to keep all of the clothing stocked. I may change my mind and list more broadly in the future, but for now, this works for me.
Thank you for reading, have a wonderful day!
I live in a one-bedroom apartment, so if I want to produce my own food homestead-style, I need to be creative. One thing I love having fresh is microgreens. Usually, when I have bought microgreens at the grocery store or market, I cannot get through them fast enough and end up with a portion of spoiled greens.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to find Hamama Greens. They specialize in grow-kits and seed subscriptions that make it simple and easy to grow microgreens in any space! I have been subscribing to Hamama Microgreens, which sends me three seed quilts per month to grow.
My favorite part of this subscription is that, the greens are alive! With barely any space, I have been able to grow a personal supply of greens for our meals and more. I have used them for garnishing just about everything, and they are great for making nutritious salads. And the best part is, they are grown fresh in our kitchen! They last much longer this way, and we’ve never thrown any greens out. In fact, I’ll even throw the parts we don’t use into my vegetable scrap bin to add to broth.
Want to start growing your own microgreens? Sign up for a Hamama subscription and get your grow kit today! You can also send a subscription as a gift!
