Have you made any Poshmark sales lately? If so, congratulations! I know how exciting it is to make a sale and I hope that you make many more sales in the future! So now that you have made a really amazing sale, I hope, what is your next step? That’s what today’s post is all about! Today’s post is all a bout how to tackle packaging your sale and shipping. Let’s go!
Packaging Your Sale
Okay, now that you have made your sale, we need to talk about packaging. Personally, I believe that you need to put a little TLC into your packaging. Over the years, my packaging has varied. Some years, I have used tissue paper while other years, I have embraced poly bags. Regardless of what your use, you need to make sure that it looks presentable to the buyer. The more care you put into the package, the happier the customer will be. Also, please keep in mind that pretty packaging leads to lots of love notes on Poshmark.
Above, I wanted to give you a sneak peek into my desk area and basic packaging routine. I do rotate between tissue paper designs but the basic idea is the same. First, I wrap the item in tissue paper and secure with tape. Then, I roll the edges on both sides and secure with tape. Finally, to complete the package, I wrap it with twine and attach my Recycled Roses business card to the top. And there you have it! A complete and cheery package for your excited buyer! This isn’t hard at all and takes no more than 5 minutes!
When I first started Poshmark, I had no idea that the US Postal Service gave out priority boxes for free. I spent SO much money on boxes for no reason. Once I realized that USPS could supply my boxes, I have since ordered them in various sizes in bulk. The two most common boxes that I keep on hand are THIS one (for shoes) and THIS one (for clothes). You can order these online in various or visit your local post office and see what they have in stock.
The Shipping Label
Finally, you are going to need to add the shipping label to your package. However, before adding the label here is a little tip on how to differentiate packages, especially if you have a lot. Do yourself a favor and label what is inside each box, in addition to, the packaging slips. It will save yourself a big headache later on, trust me. You can find the labels either in your email or on the direct sale link within the app. All you have to do now it attach the label and ship it at your local post office. Oh, and don’t forget to hold onto the receipt just in case it gets lost in the mail (and yes that has happened to me).
I hope that you found this helpful! If you have any additional questions or are looking for some extra tips, don’t be afraid to reach out!
