What is up guys it’s Vanessa coming at you with another video now this one is going to be my how I was able to earn one thousand dollars in one month on Poshmark and Mercari selling my old stuff and if you guys like videos like this don’t forget to give the video a huge thumbs up it does help me out tons don’t forget to subscribe on your way out let’s get on with the video so I wanted to show you guys and I’m probably just pop up some images here I pretty much started Mercari and Poshmark around the same time I actually got the idea of selling on Poshmark and Mercari from my friend Selly who I we when we went to Ohio she introduced me to mercari and so therefore shout-out to her for introducing me and I just kind of got addicted to it after a while after I made my first sale I thought it was really cool and ever since then I have been pretty consistently making a decent amount of money every month on Poshmark I no longer am selling on mercarir and we’ll also be talking about that further along in the video so if you guys have questions don’t forget to leave those in the comment section down below and I will try my best to answer them so the first thing I want to talk about is how to start on Poshmark and Mercari and just kind of the differences but with both accounts you just have to have an app the first thing you do when you start is you just create an account if you have like a email address or anything like that you can start it up so one thing I will say that if you want to really earn a lot of money on Poshmark you have to think about the things that you’re selling I try to sell items that are almost like new or you can have tags still on them or I even try to sell products that I have purchased to review for video when you’re posting things on Poshmark or Mercari you want to think about would you want to receive that item in the condition that it was in when you purchase it so you want to think about that don’t post anything with like a crap ton of stains on it and just something that you wouldn’t even want to buy one thing that I do want to say that as suggestion a huge reason as to why I was able to sell so quickly is that you want post kind of like daily so if you do have a bunch of things that you want to sell on Poshmark or mercari you can definitely set them aside and then post them as you go so that you’re constantly showing up on the Poshmark or Mercari feeds now what exactly do you need to start your Poshmark and Mercari account I’m going to just go off of the things that I felt are important one other things that you are going to need that you’re going to want high quality photos I take all of my photos with my iPhone I do have a DSLR camera but I don’t use that camera to take pictures room and Poshmark and my mercari account I just simply use my iPhone camera but if you don’t have a camera or phone camera that has high quality I suggest investing in why not something too expensive just something simple it’ll take some really clear photos the lighting is everything when you’re doing photo you want people to be able to see all of the items you want them to see everything in extreme detail because you don’t want them to have any surprises but I will suggest getting some soft boxes or just taking pictures in daylight natural lighting anything with nice bright lights would be really really helpful you can even make your own soft boxes I’m going to link down in the description box of soft boxes that either another thing that you want to do is have plain backgrounds you want your item to be the main focus not necessarily everything else around it so make sure that you are having like it’s kind of I mean you can kind of get really creative I have seen some Poshmark shops that have some really creative backgrounds that have like marble with flowers and everything which is nice but I have kept it simple I have a wood floor so I use that kind of as my backdrop or I also tried to use my wall which is a gray just a simple background because my main focus is the item and not everything else around so the other thing about Poshmark is that Poshmark actually you’re able to use the postage like there’s free packaging at the post office because the right-hand shipping that you’re using you go to the post office and get evelope and boxes for free to use to ship your items now with Macari you can’t necessarily do that that I did purchase my own poly envelope to send stuff and it’s actually cheaper than if you go to the post office and try to buy an envelope there so I’m going to show you guys number books that I used to use for my car that now actually used for eating and I can do a separate video on eating sounds a little bit more complicated I don’t still learn how to use that so this is the at poly envelope that I use for shipping items that I don’t get a free envelope for it’s like really simple it’s very very durable plastic and it comes with like an adhesive little strip here and these are like eight and a half by 11 and they fit close those are really great because they don’t add extra weight which is key because if your items don’t weigh what the postage says the post people are not going to send it and they’re going to give you a heart that packaging I use different colors of tissue paper and from the dollar store and wrap yourself there’s that I also have banking cards I just have little ones that I got from my target they have like these little cards like this and they come with a matching color envelope and that’s what I use to semi thank you card it’s always good to have thank-you cards because it just is a good gesture and you have think about like how you would want your package to be sent and how you would feel to get a thank-you card or a little extra note or even a little extra gift in there as a surprise that would make you want to purchase it on the seller the number I talked to you guys about some tips that I think are super important so that you can not only sell unpopular and be successful but sells fast so the one thing is the descriptions are extremely important be accurate you want to make sure that if something has a stain or a hole on it that you’re making sure that you’re putting that information killing any of that stuff to put the information there and because people want to buy it they’re going to buy and it’s not well you know what putting on the brand measurements if you have that all that good stuff but when I think to about Poshmark specifically is that posh Mart has a social component where you can share and you can also follow people so one thing I have been doing recently is sharing a lot and if you share people will see that you share their stuff and then they’re going to share yours so the more I part that are on your products the quicker you’re going to be able to sell your stuff so share and follow other postures so that you can increase your sales in a timely fashion and another tip that I will say and also with caution is trying to post your items in multiple apps now as you can see I sold on Poshmark and require a at the time but now I also do eBay so if you can handle it try to post on as many apps as possible because the more you post on other stuff the more eyes are going to be on it but be mindful to look at the terms and conditions of each app you cannot mention other people’s apps on other apps just don’t do it it’s bad business you will get banned or suspended indefinitely which is what happened to me on your car because I had posted stuff on Poshmark and Macari and someone asked me if something was on Poshmark and her car is loves me and it became a huge ordeal because I didn’t even tell the person to go and buy the item all Poshmark I would rather have them pay for it there on Macario because of the customer service at Mercury I was not able to dispute the claim they didn’t even give me a chance to make things right they just danced me and I am unable to upsell on my car anymore which is really a sudden case I really enjoy the app but the customer service is horrible first out there and I think it’s communicating in a timely fashion you want to make sure that if someone is asking you a question that you are communicating on like ASAP you guys think about customer service you waiting in that customer service line and it says like you’re 20 minutes in the queue you know you’re going to be upset once you get to the customer service person so don’t make your customers wait as well you want to make sure that you’re responding in a timely fashion and that you’re also being courteous and also kind don’t come off as rude because I have seen people who do come off as rude you’re going to get a lot of questions you’re going to get a lot of lowball offers it’s just the name of the game but just brush it off keep it moving and be kind and you’ll make us never negotiate outside of the apps don’t try to endorse people using PayPal don’t do any of that stuff just it’s just don’t do it if you want to be able to continue to sell on the app just follow the instructions you’re going to be able to sell and don’t try to an able or do some other little random stuff if you want to do that that’s on you but do not do that if you want to continue to sell and not be another tip that I would say it’s open appeal box my PO Box honest he has paid for itself at this point on recording when you printed out your shipping label it does have your address on it if you people are able to return the items now I am so comfortable putting my home address so I got a p o– box on that only for you to prefer the Poshmark answer the more cardi returns in Endemol i will recommend to get a few of oxygens because one it doesn’t look professional but two you want to also protect yourself because you don’t know who these people are or whatever it’s the internet just you know keep yourself so another $2 face to be honest if people are asking you about the condition of the items don’t sit here and try to act like it’s brand new will you know you wore that thing like 20 different times to the glove and then don’t do that try to give people an honest of the opinion just to think about putting yourself in their shoes you wouldn’t want someone to lie to you about a product about the size about how it fits and then when you get it realize that they were lying more honest you are the better ratings you’re going to get meaning more customers are going to come because you’re going to be your top rated seller don’t try to make a quick buck by buying at the end of the day it’s not going to help you out another thing you could do is to ship it fast as possible one thing I will say is that if you’re using the post office or effect or whatever please keep in mind that those things take time what happens if your package gets off in a mail a bunch of stuff life happens so make sure that you’re shipping yourself as fast as you can if you are unable to ship things out communicate with your buyers because if you don’t communicate they’re going to be in when you’re trying to list items always look at what other people are selling your item for or what have sold so that you can make sure that you’re pricing your item competitively especially if it’s an item that canoe with tags so that you can make sure that you’re making enough for your item then the last tip is to reviews your agreements because they’re on record you’re actually not allowed to you stock photos and a bunch of other crazy things that they have on there which don’t make any sense but whatever but always read the user agreements I didn’t know that I couldn’t mention Poshmark on Macari and that got me banned didn’t even send anyone to Poshmark but it got me banned anyway no harm no foul so make sure you’re being the user agreements to ax – no you don’t put yourself in that position I’m also going to go up and do some pros and cons of each or Poshmark and men’s river card so approach for Poshmark are that it has a lot of users so a lot of people are using Poshmark it is a reputable app and people have been making a lot of money on Poshmark B they do have free shipping material so when you go to the post office you can get envelopes and boxes which are plus because boxes and envelopes can cost money the other thing is that there’s the social aspect which is also a plus the more followers and likes you have the more you’re going to sell it will also have opportunities on Poshmark to open a boutique I have not looked into it I don’t think I’m going to go that far I really doubt it but it’s a cool thing that you’re able to make enough money to open up your own shop and make a decent amount of money on parlormaid you can also post more than 4 photos on your car you’re only able to post four on Poshmark you can post a lot more which is helpful for your customers so that they’re able to see all of the aspects of the ico also Poshmark it’s really good because they have two-day shipping and sometimes they even do like one-day shipping so it’s pretty postage and it’s already there we just ran out the shipping labels super easy the attention on item and it ships off to your project has great customer service I had an issue with a return they were able to get that issue result and they were super quick about it and you were getting through a human which is a plus because on other type you’re not always talking to a human at some time an automated message their rating system is really good on Poshmark eight to five stars and people are also able to leave comments so it’s not just like good great bad it’s a five star rating which is uh plus okay so another thing about Poshmark is really great they are also on desktop which is really cool because even when you’re searching for something on Google let’s say if you check something out like I don’t know like a red dress or something Poshmark will show up on the Google search which means more eyes on your listing meaning sastras so now I’m going to go up and talk about the columns about Poshmark because again nothing is perfect contrary actually takes twenty percent of a sale that it’s over twenty dollars which is a huge chunk sometimes because you’re trying to sell your item for a reasonable price and then you have to jack up the price because they are taking a huge cut out of your people shipping can sometimes be inflated with Poshmark and as some of the stuff it doesn’t necessarily cost that much to ship so that and also being negative as another kind of thing is that sometimes Poshmark can be slow if you’re not sharing if you’re not liking if you’re not following people no one’s going to prove yourself so share and follow a ton of other postures if you want to make quick sales and trust me you will but if not it’s gonna take a while it is it can be very slow sometimes to make a sale just make sure that you’re following the tips you will get a ton of lowball offers on Poshmark people are going to offer you almost half the price or even something ridiculous don’t get offended just counteroffer try to get to a happy medium with a customer but keep in mind that you will get a ton of lowball offer so the last negative that I have for Poshmark is that the seed in my personal opinion on the app can be very crowded and overcrowded I feel like there’s a lot of slip going on that sometimes can be a little confusing for people I just if I want to look for something I just search it but on my regular beef it can be a little bit overcrowded and a lot of is going on I don’t underst so now that is our wealthy pros and cons River khari so recording the pros are that I was getting a ton of quick sales on Vicari I think I was something like three to four things every week on Macari and it ranged but I will say that I did sell a lot faster on her car than posh but I think you is that I felt like the shipping was pretty reasonable from her car some of the stuff didn’t really Maggie amount but overall I felt like the shipping was a little bit more reasonable armored car even Kaczmarek I think – is that mercury has really fast payment I didn’t have to wait too long depending on when I requested a payment so that was really nice that everything was really streamlined and everything was super another pro that I have from her heart is the B user interface on the app was really user friendly it was really basic it was really simple and it was just something that wasn’t super overcrowded and if you’re looking for something it would pop up it was searching it’s just simple to eat nothing to it that her car it only takes ten percent of the sale which is half of what Poshmark takes which was nice so that you were able to kind of sell your items at a more reasonable price so now we’re going to talk about the cons over McCarty my number one con is honestly their customer service now I have the issue where they thought I was doing something and I didn’t really know what they don’t show you for instance if you are fled for something they don’t show you where you went wrong they just flag you and then they’re just like you’re suspended and you’re pretty much talking on to a machine if you try to email them that really is it’s really hard to try to contact them and to find an email to contact them I will say it is very difficult to get a hold of customer service and honestly it was kind of pointless it was like talking to a brick wall because it was an automated system they weren’t really listening to anything that I had to say and so I was really upset about how I was treated on the / McCarty system I felt like it was my seller from me and it was just interesting that I left leg and I’m not the only person you search on the internet there’s a bunch of people that happened to that they have honestly been unjustly banned for just miscommunications or misunderstandings and then when you look more cardio’s a bunch of other accounts that are selling and have tons of ratings and really bad ratings from people and yet those people are still able to sell so I think that it’s definitely one side acting where cards definitely need to do a better job in their customer service department about that because yeah your girl was pick another card that I did find on her cards that like I said there were a lot of people selling a lot of counterfeit items on there a lot of fake stuff like random things and just kind of like also stuff from like China which is random things like that trinkets and I definitely felt like it was a good app but there was a lot of things that I felt like I couldn’t trust by from her car what another con – is that you were only allowed to post four pictures out of everything and so it’s definitely difficult trying to post up lots of details about your product especially as a product happy imperfection and everything to that you cannot mention anything anything outside of work hard like you can’t even mention Poshmark you can’t mention any social media don’t even don’t even even hint it because you will be saved okay guys don’t do it otherwise you will be banned just for even mentioning something like Oh less if you have a bunch more pictures of the item on Instagram or let’s say you do post it on Poshmark which you would rather than buy unrequired don’t even mention any of those things or you will be pissed okay as to still do so another thing to is there a rating system there’s only three ratings on there if you’re great good or bad and yeah there’s no in-between there so I will say that I wish that they would expand the rating system maybe to apply our system because it’s either great it’s either good or it’s bad and yes you’re always right there just I mean I always had great ratings ahead over 48 great ratings which I guess would be 5 star rating so I can have those problems that I will say that kind of just it’s like the spectrum is a little off there so another car to is that there is no desktop version from Akari everything is sold me on the app so you do have kind of a very specific type of customer who is more apps user friendly and you have less eyes on your products on your car than you do posture is another thing that sucked was that I got a crap ton of lowball offers which I’m not the private sector like maybe it is more of a younger crowd on McCarty but I got so many lowball offers and I kept having to do tell them no sorry the price is firm because it was kind of ridiculous like the item was probably oh I spent probably over two hundred to four hundred dollars on the item and people wanted to buy it like 50 books like this is literally has tag still on the freakin item and you’re really gonna offer me $50 come on today is everything that I have I really hope this was informative I really hope it was helpful if you have any questions at all please leave them in the comment section down below also
