Poshmark recently released their “Year In Social Commerce” report and as the title states, shopping is all about social right now and it’s not going to slow down.
I think Poshmark is a great platform for trendy, cute clothes and accessories but if you want to be successful, plan on dedicating a few hours a day to your closet as if it’s nor shared, no one will see it.
As with any marketplace, issues will arise but there are a couple of things can work on to improve the user experience:
- Stop having your users authenticate items listed for sale. I get these alerts and will go through the list and the amount of items listed as replicas that are not is scary.
- Remove any closets that sell sex, live dogs, refrigerators, guns or anything else that is not allowed.
- If an item has been reported more that 5 times, remove it. Someone shared a pair of fake Louboutins that she along with several other people reported as counterfeit. We’re going on a month now and they are still listed.
- Allow sellers to place a limit as to how low they will accept offers for. Listing an item that’s retails at $500, listed for $100 and receiving offers of $15 is offensive.
There’s more but this should keep Poshmark busy enough and to read the Social Commerce report, click here.
