I had to write a review so all you hating consumers could read it lol and also so I can share my experience and give a proper, OPEN MINDED perspective of Poshmark as a business.
Here's the thing.
When you buy something retail for FULL price, the more years that pass by, the more that item goes down in value, doesn't matter what damn brand it is. You can't expect to sell a USED and WORN item for more than $50. Sorry, I just don't agree. UNLESS the item is vintage and actually has been around for more than just 10 years. Now that I got that out of the way let's talk about buying, because I'm both a seller and a buyer.
I've never had an issue with buying on Poshmark in terms of the items arriving and not being as advertised, (with a few exceptions). I did get a shirt that had a hole in it that wasn't advertised in the sellers closet, but it's okay I just sewed it, NBD. I ordered a cute vintage backpack and a sweater from another seller and the backpack really, really smelled like the sellers home. Took awhile to air it out but besides that, it was in amazing vintage condition.
I've also had items that just don't fit, (jeans mostly) so I've stopped buying jeans off of Poshmark because common sense, if it's not 100% certain, why bother spending my money on it? I made the decision to buy these items. I knew there was a chance those jeans might not fit but I took the chance and for that reason, I have to live with that decision. Simple. Stop whining about things YOU choose to do.
I get it. If a seller takes pictures of an item and PURPOSELY doesn't show any flaws, that's problematic because that's just straight up ripping someone off, but if something doesn't fit or you don't like it, OH WELL! You bought it. Resell it and move on.
Selling is not easy on Poshmark. I have a mix of modern and vintage clothes and I consider the modern items to be priced VERY, VERY fairly. Mind you, I don't buy "designer" just Forever21, American Eagle, things that really shouldn't be overpriced in the first place!
I've had times where sales are booming and a lot of times when it's not and I question why I even bother, but I still continue to do it. I'm not giving up because I know that someone out there just might come across my listing, make me an offer and love the item.
I'm a very honest seller. Some might say i'm too honest and thats why I don't make sales all the time, but I believe that the consumer should NEVER be lied to, especially because money is involved. Not a lot of people have this standard and pride in what they do, and that's fine, that's them. But do not lump me, an honest, good person just trying to make some extra cash and also genuinely wants the consumer to be happy and love their purchase into the category of crappy sellers. It's not fair!
Not every seller is terrible. Just be more open minded and less ignorant and angry. I know you might be upset that you're out some cash, but in most cases, you make that conscious choice. Don't forget that.
