bernurbanThanks for the info. I though it wasn't allowed at all. 2nd. I wouldn't trade with anyone unless I've built some kind of constant communication with them or I actually know them. Everything you said is true and very helpful! Thanks so much!

katjo@bernurban You're welcome, I'm glad you found it helpful. Happy PoshingπŸ˜ƒ

glittergoddessI figured it out eventually! But I'm glad you posted this for others. I almost traded one of my bags for a "Chanel" but the girl sends out ratty old clothes and keeps the purse she trades for. It's awful. I only trade with people that I read reviews about. Thanks for posting!

enigma@katjo yes, I saw this..I am firmly of the belief that trading benefits nobody. I find the fact that PM does not back trading to mean that they do not approve. This came up at Poshfest, and I understood it to mean that trading was not ok..I won't disqualify on that alone, but I really believe an updated guide of rules needs to be made..I've been told by sellers that unopened makeup and creams are now allowed, and I find that to cause much confusion, as well...(expiration date, it's NIB bit I tried it once, etc.etc..!) I found it easier when the guidelines were more black Nd white..😱
Dec 26 01:53PM
katjo@enigma I too agree that trading is not always a very wise thing to do and I would never trade but Poshmark will not close down a closet for trading because it is not against the rules. They use to have in F & Q section "no trading" but they took that down. I wholeheartedly agree an update would be great for everyone!
Dec 26 02:23PM
enigma@katjo If we get confused..can you imagine the newbies? πŸ˜±πŸ’—πŸ’—
Dec 26 02:28PM
katjo@enigma Ps: Brand new make-up that is not liquid is allowed.
Dec 26 02:29PM
katjo@enigma Yes, that is why I've made these listings. I hope it helps.πŸ‘β€οΈπŸ˜˜πŸ’‹

katjo@lovecolor7 Here you goπŸ˜ƒ
Dec 26 02:32PM
enigma@katjo people say that brand new lotion is too, but I thought it wasn't? What about the expiration dates? Can be NIB but expired!
Dec 26 02:32PM
katjo@enigma I'll tag you to a listing from an email from Poshmark about new make-up being acceptable.
Dec 26 02:36PM
roxygirl1@katjo Ok, just learned something new. I always thought Trading was not allowed, slough I wouldn't ever take the risk. I suppose the more I read, the more I learnπŸ’•

Dec 26 09:12PM
jakeamom12I asked posh about make up also, their response was as long as it was new and unopened it was allowed. Shampoo, lotion etc. is not. I guess as far as expired make up is to buy from a seller with a good history???
Dec 29 02:34PM
katjo@jakeamom12 Yes, new make-up is allowed as long as it's unopened and solid, not a liquid make-up.
Dec 29 03:01PM
closet_findsI just think it is WRONG for Posh to allow trading knowing that Poshers are getting a discounted shipping rate, insurance and tracking and Posh is not making a dime off the transaction. Times that by hundreds of thousands and they are losing money. Also to let people use their website and not make a dime? I just can't believe they allow it. I have been approached many times to just change the item to $1 and pay the shipping and trade the item that way. I simply DO NOT trade and get very annoyed when asked. ALWAYS someone with a small assortment of nothing. Also, as long as Im posting, don't ya just love the "NEW, NEVER WORN" and then someone is modeling it???? I do not get that at all. AND, its a size small and the model is an X large!!!! lolπŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’Gotta Love it.

maureenmanning@katjo thank you from a new posher ...... Now a question I can't seem to find how to get the emoticons and picture overlays etc.... Can you point me in the right direction??
Jan 02 09:52PM
katjo@maureenmanning Hi and welcome to PoshmarkπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ!!! To get emoticon you need to go to your phone or iPad settings, click on general then on international, then on keyboards, add Japanese. Now when you want your emoticons click on the the globe (next to your microphone on your keypad) and the all the emoticons will show upπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ!!! To get picture frames there are many photo editing apps and filters. A few of my favorites are Instaframe and PicFX, both user friendly and a great place to start. Have fun and Happy Posher😊

casandra_b@katjo Instead of trading, I ask the other person if they'd like to lower the price to an agreed upon lower price (i.e. a $50 item to $10) and then we sell our items to each other at the lower price. That way it's PoshMark backed and it's an even deal. I don't trust ever trading based on word alone. There are too many untrustworthy people out there. The PoshMark shipping is worth it when you're guaranteed to get your item!
Jan 04 05:55PM
katjo@casandra_b HiπŸ˜ƒYou are still taking a chance even by lowering the price. If you send your item before they do and they cancel your purchase after you've shipped, you get nada and they get a great deal, or they send you something "not as described" like an empty box, posh will refund your money but the trader will keep the item you sent at the reduced price, Poshmark won't back that. I've heard this happen to some people. It's still a risk so be sure if you price drop/trade it's with someone who has good feedback.
Jan 04 06:35PM
casandra_b@katjo thank you for pointing that out!

Jan 22 12:34PM
katjo@kolply HiπŸ˜ƒWelcome to Poshmark. I recommend if you are going to trade check to see if the trader your interested in trading with has done other trades with good feedback. Read the comments on their items that have been traded to get an idea if they have been honest with their previous trades. Of course this doesn't insure you will get an honest trade but it's a bit more reassuring if they have done several trades successfully and honestly. Poshmark does not back trades so understand that any trade is always done at your own risk.
Jan 22 12:40PM

beautifuladdictI seen Someone say that when ppl trade posh doesn't get paid because they are just paying shipping is that true? Because I remember it was $7 for items 7lb or less now its for only 2lbs for the same price and I've shipped items off of posh that were 2lbs and I only payed like $3 if that.
Jan 27 11:34AM
katjo@beautifuladdict HiπŸ˜ƒYes, that's true, posh doesn't get paid on trades because the traders set the price to zero so no commission is taken. That is why Poshmark does not back trades. It was never $7 shipping on 7lbs or less, it use to be 3lbs and now it's 2lb if the sale is less then $25. It's $1 more for each additional lb.
Jan 27 11:40AM
crillshihi! I really love poshmark and have been successful with making sales, but I just haven't had any luck getting a host pick, or becoming a suggested user. Any advice? I feel weird tagging party hosts cos I read in another post by another user that it's now allowed. I share my stuff and people who follow me whenever I get a chance. Any tips you have would be greatly appreciated!!! :D
Jan 27 06:09PM
katjo@crills HiπŸ˜ƒ I looked at your closet and I think it's very nice with good cover shots. I would just keep doing what your doing, being active in the community and getting your name out there so people start to get to know you. Join social networks like FB, twitter and Instagram and share your closet to them as well, this will also help to increase your followers. You can email hello@poshmark.com and let them know you would love to be considered to become a SU and let them know why you feel you qualify to be one. You might want to work on adding more listings and increasing your followers and that takes times but will help as well. I really think your on the right path and it will all come in time with dedication and patience. Have fun and Happy PoshingπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ

ladycarrillo86Hi! I have a question...do u know since Poshmark does allow trades but doesn't support...does this effect your ability to become a suggested user or to get host picks? I selectively trade w/poshers I trust but am also trying to grow my followers..TyπŸžπŸ’ž
Feb 03 11:47PM
katjo@ladycarrillo86 HiπŸ˜ƒNo, it definitely does not effect your chances of becoming a suggested user nor should it effect your chances of getting a Host Pick. It is not against the rules.
Feb 03 11:57PM
ladycarrillo86Great... Thnk u for clarifying... I was told the opposite from someone doing host picks and so I was pretty bummed.. I do have 2 HPs but wish I can def increase since I'm coming on my year here soon... I'm going to use your info to add to my closet for newbies as well if you are ok with that.. Ty🌹🌹🐞

doxmomkaren@katjo great post! Thank you. I only traded once, when I was fairly new to Poshmark. It did not turn out well. I never received anything from her and was out a super nice Coach bag. She has good comments about trading, too. So you just never know! And now I don't take the risk. No trading for me!!!!! I haven't had much luck selling, and I know it's probably because of my photography. I've stopped listing items until I can work on taking better cover shits and additional photographs. But I've bought TONS! This had been so helpful to me since I've lost a lot of weight and don't have much into new size. I wouldn't have anything if it weren't for Poshmark!! Thanks you, as always, great posting and advice.

gracethedawn@katjo Hi, I 'm a "newbie." Thanks for all your advice. My items are like new or never worn. I worked in a professional environment and dressed very well! I always had items in my closet with tags or torn off and never worn. I have so much more to sell and haven't had any sales!?! Not even ❀'s just poshers that want to trade.

katjo@gracethedawn HiπŸ˜ƒand first of all WELCOME TO POSHMARK!!! I did look at your closet and you have a lot of nice itemsπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘I'm going to tag you from another listing I did on how to increase your sales. Don't give up!!! Right now you are only following 761 people, that means only 761 people see your listings when you share them. It takes time but I suggest working on increasing your followers and I explain how to do that on the other listing I will tag you on. By increasing your followers you are increasing your chance of getting a sale. It's also important to share to the parties as these parties that you share too can be viewed by everyone, not just your followers. you know the old saying "Rome wasn't built in a day?" That cliche is befitting for Poshmark as well, you just need to be diligent and patient as you work on increasing and establishing yourself and your closet. Happy Poshing!!πŸ˜ƒ

age_of_couture@katz2 You know... I honestly didn't feel comfortable doing it the first time & it was very stressful too!! I was about to trade again today & glad that I didn't. But my items aren't selling! 😒. It's frustrating. I think I may have my prices too high, but with the fees I break even. I mainly sell Juicy Couture Charms & the market really isn't all that big... You have to be a "DIE-HARD" Collector like myself!! πŸ˜‰ I just ❀️ those little guys!! I will put on my page "NO TRADES or PAYPAL"!! Do I just enter those rules for my last name?

agirlcalledjade@katjo Trading is ok...as long as you can see the other persons items clearly.
Mar 25 10:45PM
katjo@agirlcalledjade Trading is allowed but at the traders own risks. Trades have happened where what you see isn't what you get and some have received an empty package or a ruined/fake item. Sadly this happens. Poshmark will not back any trades so if you do trade you just want to make sure the person has very good feedback and even so are still taking a risk. Many people have traded successful but many have been scammed as well so it's a crap shoot!
Mar 25 11:00PM
agirlcalledjade@katjo I've traded with several Posher's and I had no issues. I got my items as described. I reviewed their feedback from other Posher's and received my items as promised. I think it all boils down to the integrity of the person. How honest they are. I always set a trade limit for myself. I usually do not exceed $50 and it has to be something I really want!
Mar 25 11:08PM
katjo@agirlcalledjade As I said there have been successful trades and also many unsuccessful trades. It's great you set a limit for yourself and check feedback. I'm happy you've had successful trades, I generally hear all about the unsuccessful ones.😱😬
Mar 25 11:16PM
agirlcalledjade@closet_finds I don't think it's wrong for two people to trade as long as it's through Posh even if item is set to $1 because Posh still gets 20% lol. Not to mention the shipping rates can become spongelike depending on how much you shop on here (I shop plenty) and that means an individual shipping fee from each Posher you buy from. Not what I don't agree with is when people try to trade outside of Posh. This is Posh not Paypal or EBay loool. That is wrong. Also, it's wrong that some Posher's have so many different sites they are selling there items on, that they at times forget to delete old listings and fail to tell you the item is sold until you purchase!! This has not happened to me but I've heard through other Posher's. We can question the integrity of regular Posher's too! Some people more than triple the price for items that have been worn or that bought on the clearance for a fraction of the cost. That I have witnessed for myself. Ultimately, it is up to each buyer and seller to take their own risk. Each purchase is a risk!

agirlcalledjade@katjo Thank you, there are some honest people left in the world lol but honestly speaking, I feel at times the people with who I've made a few trades with were more honest than regular Posher's "selling" their items. Once, I received something that smelled like nicotine in a box and an item which had a hole not mentioned in the description box. These are some of the reasons which make me always want to ask a seller to reduce their price, it's pretty much a blind purchase.

katjo@agirlcalledjade I agree it's not wrong to trade I only warn that it's done at the traders own risk. With the new commission policy Poshmark will receive $2.95 on trades now since no item can be sold under $3 and items under $15 Poshmark gets $2.95. The traders are using Poshmark platform to trade items so they are entitle to set a fee. I completely agree with those selling on multiple platforms not deleting there sold listing that was sold on another platform. I really don't understand the purpose of not removing the unavailable listing. As far as pricing it's up to the individual, it's their closet, their business to set as they please, I think most poshers are pretty savvy and know what price points they want to spend on each particular item and if it's a good price. Any Poshmark purchase is not a risk, Poshmarks backs all purchases with their buyer/seller protection. Trading on the other hand is a risk since Poshmark does not back any trade. I think on the overall it's a pretty awesome app and I've met some incredible people in this community that do have integrity and hearts of gold❀️Nice chatting with, it's 3am here and I'm off to bed. Have a fabulous night and Happy Poshing!😊

katjoPoshmark has a buyers/sellers protection guarantee. If you receive an item "not as described" you can not accept the package by clicking "Item not as described" Poshmark will then review the case.

beautifulbutton@katjo love this! I love to trade from Time to time. I am very careful who I trade with and I def make sure to read feedback. Even that sometimes isn't enough so I agree it's on our own risk. I was scammed once but that was way in my early posh days. Now I'm cautious on who I trade with. I don't trade with people who only have 2 listings, people with no sale history or feedback. This is a great post

lmpasternack@katjo so many people think it is not allowed. I have done it and know the risks. But this is such a great post! I'm trying to become a suggested user and want to know all the rules inside and out and ensure I'm doing what I have to do. I try to go above and beyond to help others also but your posts I've read have been extremely helpful. Thank you for taking the time to do this. πŸ’žπŸ˜Š

raynamarie@katjo I am interested in the SU program and want to make sure that if I do trade it will not disqualify me. I felt that keeping the trade on PM gives them a little kickback and I only trade with users who have positive feedback, 50+ listings and 5k+ followers because I know they have put enough effort into their closet to put their reputation at risk. I've only had awesome experiences with my trades but I want to make sure this doesn't disqualify me from SU program. Do you know if this does or not?
Oct 26 08:55AM
katjo@raynamarie Hi RaynaπŸ˜ƒTrading absolutely does NOT disqualify you to be a SU. Trading IS allowed on Poshmark, the trade is just not backed by Poshmark. Not against the rules.
