What is Poshmark?

Poshmark is a resale app that lets you sell clothes, jewelry and make-up to others. For example, when you have a lot of clothes in your closet that you simply don't wear anymore, it's such a waste. In that case, you can therefore choose to use a platform like Poshmark to sell these clothes to people who do want to wear them. Poshmark allows you to offer and buy second-hand items. The platform offers simple filters that give you the possibility to search by color, type of clothing, brand and price, among others. Designer brands can also be found on the app. Think Chanel and Louis Vuitton, for instance.
