Poshmark. Choosing a shipping box!

As a Poshmark seller, we all know the drill: you list your item, it sells, and then you have to figure out how to get it to the buyer in one piece. And while packaging your sold items can be a bit of a hassle, it's also an opportunity to get creative and have some fun! So why not make the most of it?

First things first: you'll need to find a box that's the right size for your item. This might seem like a no-brainer, but trust me, I've seen some truly impressive (read: ridiculous) attempts at stuffing a tiny item into a giant box. Don't be that seller. Measure your item, grab a tape measure, and find a box that's the perfect fit. And if you can't find a box that's exactly the right size, it's better to err on the side of caution and go with one that's a little too big rather than too small. Trust me, nothing is more frustrating than trying to stuff a sweater into a shoebox.

Once you've found the perfect box, it's time to add some personality to your packaging. You could go the traditional route and stick with plain brown cardboard, or you could get a little more creative. I once shipped an item in a box covered in cat stickers, because the buyer was a huge cat lover. It's the little touches like this that can really make a sale feel special. And if you're not a cat person, that's okay too. You could use colorful tape, add a handwritten note, or even throw in a few small goodies for the buyer. Just make sure whatever you add won't add too much extra weight to the box, or you'll end up paying more for shipping.

But what if you're really feeling adventurous and want to take your packaging to the next level? Why not try using a completely unconventional box? I once shipped an item in a large plastic storage container, and the buyer loved it! It was sturdy, easy to open, and the item was well-protected during shipping. Plus, it made for a pretty hilarious unboxing video. Just make sure the item you're shipping isn't too fragile for this kind of packaging. And if you're worried about the box not fitting through the mail slot, you can always just leave it on the doorstep for the mail carrier to pick up.

So go ahead, have some fun with your packaging! Your buyers will appreciate the extra effort, and it'll make the whole shipping process a little more enjoyable for you, too. Happy selling!

5 tips for taking great photos - my top tips!

Poshmark is a popular platform for buying and selling fashion items, and having high-quality photos is essential for attracting potential buyers. Here are the 5 top tips I have learned form taking and editing photos that will help you make the most of your Poshmark listings. 1) Use natural light: When taking photos of your clothing, try to use natural light as much as possible. This will help your items look more vibrant and true-to-color. If you don't have access to natural light, try using a diffused light source like a lamp with a white shade. Avoid using flash, as it can wash out the colors of your clothing and create harsh shadows. 2) Experiment with angles: Don't be afraid to try out different angles when taking photos of your items. This will give potential buyers a better sense of the fit and shape of the clothing. Try taking photos from the front, back, and sides, and see which angles showcase the item the best. 3) Show off the details: Make sure to highlight any sp
