If you haven’t already heard, Poshmark made a whole bunch of new changes to their seller tools. They doubled the number of photos on each listing and gave sellers even more draft options. of the all, the most incredible update is the ability to relist a Poshmark item with the click of a button. It’s really as easy as it sounds. It’s never been easier to relist on Poshmark, but just because it’s easy doesn’t mean you always should. Here’s everything you need to know about the update and three ways to know if you should relist a Poshmark item.
In case you’re not familiar with the term, “relisting” means posting a Poshmark item again. You list the item for the first time and relist it again for a second time. Before the Poshmark update came out, you would have to manually copy and paste all the information into a new post. Now, all you have to do is go to your listing, click “edit,” scroll to the bottom and click “copy listing.” A new post will automatically be generated for you.
Why would a seller want to relist and item on Poshmark? There are two reasons; to get to shown in the “shop new listings” section and have it show up higher in searches. The newer your item is, the more likely it is to be seen by more people.
If you do decide to use the new relisting tool on Poshmark, there are a few things that you need to be careful of. When you click the “copy listing” button, a new listing will appear. But the name is going to show the word “copy” in it. Make sure you delete that before you hit list. Also, you’re going to want to delete the old listing. There is no point in have two of the same listings on a page. You don’t want to accidentally sell one that’s not available and then have to explain that to the seller.
Now that we’ve got the basics of how and why to relist a Poshmark item, here’s how to know when it’s the right time to do it. It’s worth noting that everyone’s Poshmark business and strategies are different. These are my personal preferences, but feel free to relist whenever it feels right for you.
Relist an item on Poshmark if your item isn’t getting likes.
Scroll through your Poshmark page and look at what you’ve listed this month. Are some of them just sitting there, not getting any likes? If so, it might be time to relist them. Try switching up your title or photos when you’re relisting to see if that helps as well.
Relist if your item has been sitting for longer than three months.
If an item sits on my page for three months, that is a sign to me. It means that something isn’t working. This is when I relist the item. If that doesn’t work, I try switching up my photos or title. Of course, you could easily change this tactic to be once a month, once every six months, or even every year. It’s all about what you have time for and what feels most comfortable for you.
Relist your item for new seasons.
I don’t do this for every single season. But when winter rolls around, I’ll relist some of my jackets and heavy sweaters. In the summer, I’ll relist any swimsuits or dresses that I think people would want to see again. The goal is to have them show up on the search page when people are most searching for them.
I hope this gives you a little more insight into how and when to relist an item. I’d love to hear about relisting strategies that have worked for you!
