Prohibited Items Policy

Last Updated: November 21, 2017

Prohibited Products

Poshmark is a marketplace for women's, kids' and men's fashion and accessories. Please refrain from listing items that do not fall into these categories, as they clutter the marketplace and make shopping for fashion more difficult and less enjoyable for others.

Pre-owned items can be listed on Poshmark if they are clean and in good condition. All items must be clearly and accurately represented.

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, 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 re-purposing / hand-making them into other items like jewelry, is also prohibited on our platform.

Poshmark also prohibits the sale of items that cannot be shipped using Priority Mail per USPS regulations, including nail polish, perfumes and aerosols. Click here for more information on what cannot be shipped. Any listings in these categories will be deleted. Members who repeatedly attempt to sell such items risk permanent suspension from Poshmark.

We do not condone the buying or selling of electronics, cell phones, books, dvds, home goods, used makeup, used underwear, any health and wellness products (examples include lotions, body wash, diet supplements, protein powder, body wraps, breast pumps, curling irons and hair straighteners), non-fashion kids/baby items (examples include but are not limited to toys, bedding, strollers, bottles, formula, diapers and miscellaneous gear) 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.


*Examples of products that may be interpreted as trading in derived from threatened or extinct species include but aren't limited to clothing, shoes, jewelry, fur, bags, accessories, rings, bracelets, 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.
