Mercari is a decent app, I had it since the beta stage (which, by the way, was a complete disaster) I think there is a lot they need to fix but for a fairly new app it's so-so for selling.
Just a few things you should know about selling on this app:
1. Keep reposting. There is no way to update your items to bring it back to the top of the list for more buyer potential. If you don't keep reposting, and your item is never purchased within about the first week, it will end up sitting there until the dawn of time.
2. I wish you good luck selling contemporary brands. I've never had much luck selling clothes on Mercari unless it's brands everyone knows (Victoria's Secret, Adidas, etc.) leave the rest for Poshmark.
3. They only take 10% commission! Yay! Priority mail labels are very expensive for some reason. It's $8 for 3 lbs compared to Posh's $6.49 for 5 lbs, not sure why they ever increased the postage as it was once $6 with no issues.
Now for buying on the app:
1. Please stop rating your buyer if you want a return! There is no way for you to get one after rating (which completes the order) Contact Mercari instead!
2. Check the last time the seller you're interested in buying from has posted a new listing. If it's been a couple months, message them first asking if it's still available before buying it. This is because Mercari has an insanely long refund processing time. (and while you're at it, please don't message me asking if it's still available when I posted it yesterday!)
3. If it's listed under "Good" condition, it could have a flaw. It has always bugged me they never made a between for "Like New" and "Good" (maybe something that's been used but has no flaws (Great?)) Read the description.
4. STOP RATING SELLERS "GOOD" WITHOUT A REASON! And contact the seller before you do! We strive for good feedback, and it's very haphazard to get a "good" rating before contacting the seller. Rate 5 stars if you love your order!

Don't get me wrong, I've had a lot of sales gone through swiftly with this app, no customer service issues, but it's not the greatest for selling. It still has countless bugs and overpriced items, but I still believe with enough customer feedback it has potential to be better. Transferring your money to the bank takes a few days but they're getting better at this (used to be over a week sometimes...)

I love Wildfox! Most of their clothes are super soft, oversized, and comfortable. I own probably 10 of their baggy beach jumpers and a few of their tees and they just last forever. I don't recommend putting their items in a dryer (did that once by accident, ruined the coloring of the sweater) but air drying them is efficient. If you're between sizes, size down (I heard that you should size up only on swimwear)! Completely worth the price, watch for deals on The Rack!

Poshmark is a great app to sell clothes in your closet. It caters specifically to women clothing, for anyone needing to know.
With sellers: you may run into a few sellers that are very unreliable, but this is almost never the case. I see a lot of counterfeit items being sold without stating they're counterfeit (which is not allowed on the app) so buyer beware with this. You will only see the POSITIVE feedback for a seller, which is also very unhelpful, as if anyone has had bad experiences with the seller, you will never know.
With buyers: I've never really had any issues with buyers, but I know of experiences. My sister has had a seller that did not accept an order for a WEEK, and after a week, she asked for a refund claiming there was a "hole" in the clothing that was NOT there before shipment. They can be very deceiving, and ask for returns for very arbitrary reasons (I've had one ask for a return for a 1 inch measurement error?) but this is usually not the case.
With these issues noted, it is very easy to sell items on this website. Updating your items daily ensures that it will get more shares and likes. There is a 20% commission which takes a big hit on your item but this comes with easy sales. I've never had any problem with customer service, it may take 24hrs for them to get back on any issues with an order, but they are usually very helpful in this process. You will find better deals on Poshmark than any other competing apps (Mercari, Depop, etc.) but you could also find things way too overpriced, you just have to know how to search!

I LOVE Victoria's Secret, always have. Half of my closet is VS. I own their panties, bras, tees, leggings, jackets, you name it. And I have to say that their stuff is great quality at a very affordable price. Especially their yoga leggings! I have a hard time finding comfortable cotton-only leggings and they come in the most beautiful designs. Their Body by Victoria bras are the best there is. Their tee's run pretty big but are always my go-to's. I have to say I've never been disappointed with any of my Victoria's Secret/VS PINK orders and I will continue to purchase from them.

I ordered a pair of YRU shoes and they arrived obviously used, scratched and stained. They were disgusting. I sent them pictures and asked for an exchange for a new pair being as they were NOT in new condition. Not only did they NOT answer me for a WEEK until I messaged them again (which, by then, the shoes were out of stock), they offered me ONLY a 20% reimbursement! I said no, they're disgustingly used, I'd rather return them for full money back, and they told me I would have to pay for return shipping! Seriously? For YOUR fault? Please avoid from buying on their website. If you find a pair that you really like, purchase it from DollsKill instead, you'll find better luck there. All I know is I will never take my business here again.
