Can You Only Sell Clothes on Poshmark?
Poshmark has become a very popular online selling platform in recent years. However, something that I have wondered is if clothing is the only thing Poshmark allows.
So, can you only sell clothes on Poshmark? Poshmark is an online marketplace for men’s, women’s, and kids clothing and accessories. Sellers are prohibited from selling any items outside of that category. In fact, people who repeatedly list items outside this category risk permanent suspension from Poshmark.
This is what makes Poshmark very different from most other online marketplaces. Instead of opening up their site to every random thing you can find, they specifically only allow clothing and accessories.
