I've bought several times on Poshmark, including these beautiful suede Steve Madden pumps below! I love Poshmark for the fact that I can still keep up with the trends but save money at the same time. I have a year full of weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, etc. and it's nice to know that I can afford to buy "new" outfits for these events without breaking the bank. Its super easy to get a great deal, here's how to do it!
I look for consistency with titles, layouts, descriptions and the quality of the pictures. Consistency is something I strive for as a seller because I want my customers to feel like my shop is organized and seamless. I'm likely to click away from a shop if some of pictures are dark and some are light or the titles are chaotic.
Authenticity and Honesty:
If I'm buying an item (designer or not) I like to know everything about it. In my search, I'm looking for "authentic" in the title/description or some form of picture documenting the authenticity. Also, I'm looking for a seller that will describe or photograph any damages the item might have.
This is huge to me. After working several years at gyms and hair salons, I've realized customer service is key. As a buyer, I look for someone who is quick to respond with any questions I have. I will also go through some of the recent comments from other sellers to see if their questions were answered. This sometimes answers the questions that I may have as well. To me, if the seller does not respond quick/answer questions directly that's a sure sign they will be late on shipment or the package comes "not as pictured". Most importantly, look at the reviews; quality of their service!
Once you've found an item you'd like to purchase, research it. Find out if you're getting a good deal, considering the quality of the item. I would research via google to see if you the item is available online but I would also check to see if their is another one on Poshmark to compare prices.
