Prohibited Items Policy

Last Updated: November 17, 2021

Prohibited Products

Poshmark is a marketplace for women's, kids' and men's fashion and accessories, new personal care products, select home goods, select pets' items, and select electronics. Please refrain from listing items that do not fall into supported categories, as they clutter the marketplace and make shopping more difficult and less enjoyable for others.

In general, pre-owned items can be listed on Poshmark if they are clean and in good condition. All items must be clearly and accurately represented. Makeup and personal care products must be new, alcohol-free and aerosol-free. Any liquid products must be new and in their original sealed packaging.

Poshmark strictly prohibits the sale of illegal items, including but not limited to replicas or fakes, products derived from threatened or extinct species*, anything requiring a prescription, medical products / items making medical claims (for example N95 masks), live animals, food, misrepresented Native American or American Indian arts and crafts, and stolen goods. Members who buy, list, or otherwise attempt to sell such illegal items risk immediate and permanent suspension from Poshmark. Note, using a brand name to falsely describe or promote an item violates trademark law, even if the item is not explicitly "counterfeit". For example, the use of the words "inspired by" followed by a brand (for example "inspired by Chanel") is prohibited on our platform. Additionally, taking portions of branded items (for example, a button from an authentic designer jacket) and repurposing / hand-making them into other items like jewelry, is also prohibited on our platform.

Poshmark prohibits the sale of items that have been recalled by governments or manufacturers. This includes items such as lawn darts and several baby products (for example certain seats and cribs). Visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s web site for more information on what items might be subject to a recall.

Poshmark also prohibits the sale of items that cannot be shipped using our shipping label type per USPS regulations, including nail polish, perfumes, lithium batteries, and aerosols. Visit USPS for more information on what cannot be shipped.

We do not allow the buying or selling of furniture, appliances, used makeup/personal care products, used underwear, any health and wellness products (examples include diet supplements, protein powder, body wraps and breast pumps), and current airline and airport uniforms and related items (which include pilot, flight attendant, TSA, baggage attendant gate agents and all other flight and ground crew uniforms). Any listings in these categories will be deleted. Members who repeatedly attempt to sell such items risk permanent suspension from Poshmark.

Poshmark prohibits the sale of any electronic items that include any additional data, features, or media, separate from the original factory settings. Electronic items must be reset to original settings, if possible, and sellers must log out of or disable any accounts prior to shipping.

*Examples of products that may be interpreted as trading in or derived from threatened or endangered species include but aren't limited to clothing, shoes, jewelry, fur, bags, accessories, rings, bracelets and home decor containing tiger, shark, turtle shells, yak bones, whale, dolphin, staghorn or elkhorn coral, rhinoceros, boar, elephant, walrus, mammoth, parts or products containing these ingredients or other endangered species. For a full list of species and their products, see the Coalition to End Wildlife Trafficking Online.
