and Sale Transactions
Transactions: Registering for the Service is free; however,
Poshmark charges certain fees for various transactions effected through
the Service. Our Fee Policy is available at http://www.poshmark.com/fee_
Card Transactions: To the extent you as a buyer effect any
transactions using a credit card, you must have a valid credit card
on file, and we will (or a third party credit card processor may) store
your credit card information. Poshmark will verify your credit
card information (including expiration date and billing address), but
will not charge your credit card unless you conduct an activity through
the Service that requires your credit card to be charged. By agreeing
to pay for a transaction with your credit card, you authorize us to
charge your credit card.
Modifications: We reserve the right to change or discontinue,
temporarily or permanently, some or all of the fees for the Service
(including to lower fees for promotional events), and such changes are
effective when we post information about the fee change through the
Service. Additionally, we may change our Fee Policy at any time
and in our sole discretion, and any changes to the Fee Policy are effective
upon the posting of such changes to the Fee Policy.
Service is only a Venue and Poshmark is not affiliated with or endorsed by any
designer, manufacturer, retailer or brand of the items that users buy or sell on
Poshmark's marketplace: The Service acts as an open marketplace
for users to interact with other users to buy and sell fashion items.
Poshmark only provides a service, is not involved in any transaction
between buyers and sellers who use the Service, does not obtain title
to any purchased items and does not act as the buyer or seller (or agent
for buyers or sellers) with respect to any such transactions.
Poshmark is not affiliated with or endorsed by any designer, manufacturer,
retailer or brand of the items that users buy or sell on Poshmark's marketplace.
There are risks that you assume when dealing with other users (including those
who may be acting under false pretenses). You agree that all of
these risks are borne by you, and not Poshmark. Poshmark does
not control the behavior of users of the Service or the information
or other content provided by other users that is made available through
the Service. 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.
FOR EVERY TRANSACTION THAT
IS COMMENCED THROUGH OUR SITE, YOU MUST MAKE YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT DETERMINATION
REGARDING THE STATEMENTS, PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS OR THE REPRESENTATIONS
OF THE OTHER PARTY AND THE PARTY'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 SITE.
Comment System: User authentication on the Internet
is difficult. Poshmark may attempt, but is under no obligation, to
independently confirm a user's purported identity.
Therefore, we have established an item
commenting system to help you evaluate the user with whom you are dealing.
We also encourage you to communicate directly with potential buyers
or sellers through the features available through the Service.
Restrictions: 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 available at
You must have the legal authority to sell the items that you are listing
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 reasonably completely. If you accept an offer,
you shall complete the transaction with the buyer unless the transaction
is prohibited by law or these Terms of Service, subject to the return
procedure described below. You are also responsible for payment
of the commission to Poshmark as set forth in the Fee Policy.
An offer to sell may be retracted at any time prior to its acceptance,
but not after.
If you agree to purchase an item through the Service and confirm the
transaction, you are obligated to complete the transaction in accordance
with the terms and conditions specified by the seller (e.g., with respect
to the listing price), unless the transaction is prohibited by law or
these Terms of Service, subject to the return procedure described below.
Upon the confirmation of any purchase and sale transaction through the
Service and payment of the required amount by the buyer, Poshmark will
send to the seller's address indicated in the seller's account information
a pre-paid shipping label for seller to ship the purchased item to the
buyer. The seller must ship the purchased item to the buyer using
the shipping label (and corresponding shipping method) required by Poshmark
within 3 days after receipt of such shipping label. If the seller
does not ship the purchased item within the required time period, then
the seller will be notified that the order will be cancelled unless
it is shipped within the time period required in such notice.
Upon receipt of confirmation from the buyer that it has satisfactorily
received and accepted the purchased item, Poshmark will credit seller's
account in an amount equal to the purchase price received from the buyer,
minus a commission to be retained by Poshmark, as detailed in the Fee
Policy. The buyer must confirm its acceptance within 3 days after
receipt of the purchased item; if the buyer does not respond within
such time period, the purchased item will be deemed accepted.
Any 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.
We do not currently allow returns of items, but we do strive to make
our customers happy. If the item you receive is damaged, the wrong
item or not as described, or if any items are missing, then you must
report the issue in the Poshmark Service within 3 days after delivery
of the purchased item. Alternatively, you can also email us within
3 days after delivery at firstname.lastname@example.org
to let us know.

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 of Service 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, 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 of Service, 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. 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 101 Redwood Shores Parkway, Floor 3, 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 $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 $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 $75,000 or less, at your request, Poshmark will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $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 of
Service. 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 of Service
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.
Poshmark reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved
in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Poshmark
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. 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, 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 of Service 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, 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 after such claim or cause of action arose or be
forever barred. 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
to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or
