For the longest time, I was solely using eBay. I was happy with my profits, and comfortable with eBay’s layout. But as time went on, I knew that if I wanted to increase my profits, I had to start cross posting items across platforms.
Cross Posting on Poshmark
About two years ago, after joining the Instagram world and following some pretty epic resellers, I decided to venture out and try my luck on Poshmark. You can read about my journey here. I actually ended up really liking Poshmark and started using it more than eBay. Here is what I do to simplify the process of cross posting:
- Go in to your listing on eBay and hit “revise item”.
- save photos from eBay if you don’t already have them saved. This part is tricky though as Poshmark only uses square photos. You may have to resize photos. I use a free app called Instasize. All you do is upload your photo to it and resize it using the “instasize square” option on the bottom.
- Copy the title from eBay and then paste it in Poshmark. Please note, title space is a lot smaller for Poshmark than eBay, so you will have to consolidate. Consider leaving extraneous words out like the color or size of the item. You pre-fill this information out into Poshmark, so you don’t need to repeat yourself in the title.
- Copy and paste your eBay description into the area for your Poshmark description.
- Fill in the rest of the item specifics on Poshmark.
*Always remember, as soon as an item sells on a platform to remove it from all others. I have made the mistake of leaving an item up after it was sold on another platform, and the buyer was not happy.
Cross-Posting from Poshmark to eBay
Cross-posting from Poshmark to eBay is even easier because you don’t need to resize your photos. You may want to add extra keywords to the title space on eBay since they give you a lot more room than Poshmark. eBay also allows you to add more photos than Poshmark does, so if you have more photos- add them!
