and Sale Transactions
Registering for the Service is free; however, Poshmark charges certain
fees for various transactions effected through the Service, as set forth in the Fee Policy.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. dollars.
Taxes; Shipping Costs; Buyer Responsibility:
Items purchased by and shipped to Buyers in locations
in U.S. or Canada may be subject to applicable state, provincial or local sales
or use tax, privilege tax or similar transaction-based taxes
("State Tax"). Items purchased by and shipped to Buyers in locations
outside of U.S. and Canada may also be subject to applicable taxes, including value
added taxes (collectively with State Tax, "Taxes"). The amount of Taxes is
based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the type of
Items purchased, the Buyers designated delivery address, and/or the
location of the Seller.
Buyers are responsible for paying the applicable purchase price
for a purchased Item to the Seller, as well as any shipping costs
(which are detailed in the Fee Policy) and paying applicable Taxes
and/or duties associated with the purchase and sale of any Items through
the Service. For Buyers in the U.S., the rate of Tax applied to purchases
of taxable Items is a combined rate based on the state and local rates of
the address where the Items are delivered to or shipped from.
Buyers may use certain Poshmark promotions or credits, including
Posh Credits or credit in a Seller’s account, towards the purchase
of Items. Depending on the type of promotion or credit used, it may
reduce the amount of Taxes that apply to a Buyer’s order. The application
of the promotion or credit will be reflected at the time of checkout and
on the receipt of purchase.
Tax and shipping costs are not included in the listed price
for any Items listed by Sellers through the Service but will be
displayed to Buyers before confirmation of any purchase.
When a Buyer chooses to make an offer an estimated amount of
Tax will be displayed. The estimated amount of Taxes is an estimate
of applicable Taxes based on several factors, including the offer
price, Buyers designated delivery address and rates of Taxes in effect
at that time. If the offer price is accepted, the amount a Buyer is
charged will include the amount of estimated Taxes displayed when the
offer is submitted. If there is a counteroffer from the Seller, the
amount a Buyer is charged will include the amount of estimated Taxes
displayed when the counteroffer is accepted. The amount of Taxes may
change and be updated when the order is finalized and completed
through the Service.
Marketplace Collection; Taxes; Commissions; Seller Responsibility:
Poshmark will collect Taxes from Buyers on behalf of Sellers where we
may legally do so. This includes those states that have enacted legislation
that requires marketplaces, like Poshmark, to collect Taxes on behalf of
sellers. It also includes those states that have agreed to allow Poshmark
to collect Taxes on behalf of Sellers. In these states, the amount of Taxes
collected will be submitted by Poshmark to the appropriate taxing authority
on behalf of Sellers. If Poshmark is unable to submit Taxes on behalf of
Sellers, Poshmark will provide Sellers with the amount of Taxes collected.
Sellers are responsible for submitting such Taxes to the appropriate
Sellers are responsible for paying Poshmark’s commission as well as
all taxes imposed or measured by Seller’s net income, net profits,
income, profits, and/or revenues associated with the sale of any
Items through the Service.
Buyers may pay for Items using credit cards, PayPal or other
payment methods. If you submit your payment information through
the Service, then you authorize Poshmark to store that payment
information and charge your payment method for any Item
We reserve the right to change or discontinue, temporarily
or permanently, some or all of the fees for the Service.
Any change will be effective upon posting of
a revised Fee Policy.
Marketplace Risk: Poshmark is not affiliated with
or endorsed by any designer, manufacturer, retailer
or brand of the Items made available through the
Poshmark is a marketplace and technology platform and is
not involved in any transaction between Buyers and Sellers,
does not obtain title to any purchased Items and does not
act as a Buyer, Seller (or affiliate for a Buyer or Seller)
or broker with respect to any transactions. There are risks
that you assume when dealing with other users (including those
who may be acting under false pretenses) and all of these risks
are borne by you, and not Poshmark. We encourage you to use the
various functionalities of the Service (e.g., our Item commenting system,
and our direct messaging platform) to help evaluate the user with
whom you are dealing.
Poshmark does not control the behavior of users of the Service or the information or User Content (defined below) provided by other users. As a result, Poshmark does not guarantee or endorse the authenticity, quality, safety, or legality of any Items offered or sold, the truth or accuracy of any listings, or the ability of Sellers to sell Items or of Buyers to buy Items. We cannot assure that all transactions will be completed. Additionally, Poshmark does not guarantee the ability or intent of users to fulfill their obligations in any transactions. Poshmark reserves the right to delay the completion of any transaction for a reasonable period of time for purposes of fraud detection and otherwise protecting Poshmark and its users from illegal or wrongful activities or other violations of these Terms.
FOR EVERY TRANSACTION THAT IS COMMENCED THROUGH THE SERVICE, YOU MUST MAKE YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT DETERMINATION REGARDING THE STATEMENTS, ITEM DESCRIPTIONS OR THE SELLER’S REPRESENTATIONS AND THE BUYER’S ABILITY TO PAY FOR OR DELIVER THE ITEM(S) OFFERED. PLEASE USE CAUTION, COMMON SENSE, AND PRACTICE SAFE TRADING WHEN DEALING WITH OTHER USERS OR OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICE.
Poshmark prohibits the listing or sale of any
Item that is illegal to sell under any applicable law,
statute, ordinance, or regulation, including, without
limitation, Items listed in our
Prohibited Items Policy
You must have the right to sell the Items that
you make available for sale through the Service.
You must describe your Item (including the original price)
and all terms of sale in your listing truthfully,
accurately and completely.
You are responsible for reading the full Item listing
before making an offer. When you make an offer and your
offer is accepted by the Seller, you have a contract
with the Seller.
Buyers may offer to purchase Items from Sellers.
Once an offer is accepted by Seller, the sale transaction
is binding on both Seller and Buyer, and no returns, refunds,
cancellations or retractions are allowed, except as permitted
by these Terms. Once the offer is accepted by Seller, Buyer
must pay the purchase price and shipping costs for the Item
through the Service. After doing so, Buyer’s obligations are
complete, unless Buyer requests a permitted return. After Buyer
pays those amounts, Poshmark will provide Seller with a prepaid
shipping label ("Label"), sent to the email address associated
with Seller’s account. Once the Label is sent to Seller,
Poshmark’s obligations for that sale are complete. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, a Buyer may cancel an order for an Item within
three hours of purchasing that Item.
Seller must ship the Item to the Buyer using the Label (and corresponding shipping method) within 3 days after receipt of the Label. If the Seller does not ship the Item within that time period, then we will notify Seller and give Seller a set amount of time to ship the Item before we cancel the order automatically. Seller transfers title to the Item upon shipment.
When using a Label provided by Poshmark: (i) Seller may only use the Label to ship the applicable Item; (ii) Labels may not be transferred or sold to a third party; (iii) Seller is fully responsible for the contents of any parcels shipped using the Label; and (iv) Seller must comply with the terms and conditions and any other policies or rules imposed by the carrier used to ship the Items. As a Buyer, if an Item shipped with a Label is lost, damaged, or arrives later than expected, or is the wrong Item, we have no obligation to you; however, please report the issue to us through the Service within three days after delivery. Poshmark reserves the right to discontinue providing Labels to any or all users at any time and for any reason.
Once the Buyer confirms it has received and accepted the Item (either by affirmatively indicating acceptance through the Service or by failing to notify Poshmark of any issues with the Item within three days of delivery of the Item, as determined by the tracking information on the Label), then Poshmark will credit Seller’s account with an amount equal to the purchase price received from the Buyer (less any applicable Tax), minus Poshmark’s commission, as set forth in the Fee Policy. Funds credited to Seller’s account may be redeemed by the Seller through a permitted third party payment provider (e.g., by ACH from Poshmark's chosen financial institution) or used by Seller to purchase items listed by other Sellers through the Service.
Poshmark may allow you to return an Item in limited circumstances.
If the Item you receive is not as described on the Service,
then you may request a return by reporting the issue through the
Service or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, in each case within
three days after delivery (as determined by the tracking information on the Label)
of the Item.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
a. Agreement to ArbitrateThis Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in these Terms as the "Arbitration Agreement." You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Poshmark, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, provincial or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Poshmark are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. If you reside in the U.S., the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
b. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized ReliefYOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
c. Pre-Arbitration Dispute ResolutionPoshmark is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by emailing customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Poshmark should be sent to 203 Redwood Shores Pkwy, 8th Floor, Redwood City, CA 94065 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Poshmark and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Poshmark may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Poshmark or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Poshmark is entitled.
d. Arbitration ProceduresArbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association's ("AAA") rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA Rules"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA's consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless Poshmark and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for USD $10,000 or less, Poshmark agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds USD $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
e. Costs of ArbitrationPayment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the "Arbitration Fees") will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is USD $75,000 or less, at your request, Poshmark will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than USD $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Poshmark will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Poshmark will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys' fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
f. ConfidentialityAll aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
g. SeverabilityIf a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled "Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief" above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled "Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief" are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.
h. Future Changes to Arbitration AgreementNotwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, Poshmark agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending Poshmark written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
You agree that
Poshmark, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account
(or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any
items or content within the Service, for any reason, including, without
limitation, for lack of use or if Poshmark believes that you have violated
or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms.
Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that
may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred
to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Poshmark may also in its
sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or
any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination
of your access to the Service under any provision of these Terms
may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that
Poshmark may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related
information and files in your account and/or bar any further access
to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that Poshmark shall
not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your
access to the Service.
You agree that
you are solely responsible for your interactions (including any purchase
and sale transactions) with any other user in connection with the Service
and Poshmark will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto.

in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.

and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements
between you and Poshmark with respect to the Service. You also may be
subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use
affiliate or third-party services, third-party content or third-party
software. If you reside in the U.S., these Terms of Service shall be governed by the laws of the
State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as
set forth above, as a U.S. resident, you and Poshmark agree to submit to the personal and
exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within
San Francisco County, California. The failure of Poshmark to exercise
or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not
constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of
these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction
to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should
endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in
the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain
in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or
law to the contrary, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law,
any claim or cause of action arising out of or
related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed
within one (1) year (unless applicable law provides for a longer period)
after such claim or cause of action arose or be
forever barred. This electronic document, and all other electronic documents
referred to or incorporated herein, will be: (a) deemed for all purposes to be
a “writing” or “in writing”, and to comply with all statutory, contractual,
and other legal requirements for a writing; and (b) legally enforceable as a
signed agreement. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice
given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative
proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent
and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records
originally generated and maintained in printed form. The section titles
in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal
or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or
regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes
