Say what? You have made a sale?!
We are excited for you! However, remember that when it comes to online business, satisfying the customer’s demand requires not only outstanding quality products and immaculate packaging and quick shipping but also you want the eyes of your Poshmark customer to shine up. Their veins to be filled with thrill upon receiving the package. Besides that, neat packaging with clear labels immediately increases the speed of the shipping process since it is easier for the mailman to handle.
Hence, to assist you with your business, we offer a Poshmark shipping and packaging guide to help you nail all the basics and more!
How Does Poshmark Shipping Work?
Businesses that make sales via Poshmark are immediately given a pre-paid, pre-addressed, USPS shipping label with a UPS tracking barcode and other necessary information mentioned on it. You can easily download this from your sales list and have it printed on any paper. The label should then be pasted on the box that holds the item you are going to sell.
Once the package has been handed over to the local USPS, the barcode is scanned and logged into the USPS tracking system. Finally, a mail consisting of all the tracking information is sent to the seller and buyer.
As soon as the mail delivery system delivers the package, the buyer is sent another mail asking to review and accept it. Accepting a package immediately allows the seller to gain access to the money they earned. In case the buyer is not satisfied with the purchase, they are allowed to make a return request.
Once the package has been delivered by the seller to the USPS and logged into the system, if it is by any chance lost, then Poshmark will take care of all the costs.
Find The Right Shipping Parcel
Poshmark only lets its users utilize the Priority Mail, Priority Flat Rate, and Priority Regional Rate boxes, which can be easily found at the local USPS; you will not be charged for this. You can also have them ordered online to your doorstep from the Postal Store.
We will recommend all sellers carefully place the items within the box and stuff them in tissue, newspaper, or paper that will make sure it doesn’t break. If you wish to reuse an old box, remember to remove the Poshmark label from it completely and put on a new label.
Branding & Personalized Packaging
In order to make sure your package stands out in the eyes of all customers, the packaging needs to be memorable, organized, and attractive looking. Hence, get all your creativity ready and unleash all your energy into creating your signature look that all customers can immediately recognize. For example, tie necessary items with ribbons, and instead of stuffing tissues or newspapers for extra support of item, you can opt to use vibrant tissues and decorative wrapping papers.
You can also use this moment to include your business cards, a thank you card for purchasing, brochures, advertisements, or even a handwritten note; some sellers will even go as far as adding a free item or treats that help in leaving an outstanding impression to all the buyers.
While packaging, remember to never cover the USPS shipping label as that will end up covering important information or the barcode, which will make the mailman’s job difficult.
