    daughter just sold some items on there there she got from a friends mom, they take a cut of what you sell it for but provide a pre paid postage label. made over $100.00 mostly selling lululemon items. now my son wants to go to thrift shops and see if they can get stuff to flip. lol

    I signed up with them yesterday and bought and paid for 2 lots of security badges with PayPal.

    Just wondering what to expect, no problems as of now.

    Haven't figured out how to communicate with sellers.

    Poshmark is mostly clothing and accessories, but I found it while I was searching Goggle for badges to add to my collection/hoard.
    There is a little bit of non clothing and accessories to be found at a nice price, but I don't know as of now how "busy" the site is as I'm not sure if the 2 sellers I bought from even check in on their accounts often.

    Still trying to look around the site without the use of Facebook, Twitter or the like as I'm not "into" those type of popular things. I enjoy eBay and sites such as this.

    I view most of the popular fad type things and concepts as being overly BU$Y or a distraction I can do without.

    Never had a cell or mobile phone or credit cards. That does cause a few problems as most online computer type stuff is being set up for the mobile phone and credit cards. I also have to pay a bit more for auto insurance as I have no credit record. Then there is the motels and such that only take credit cards as payment, no cash. I also have noticed that most thrift stores won't take a personal check anymore, just cash or credit/debit card.

    I read over the agreement to get a debit card and didn't like what I read anymore then the credit card illusion. In a world that runs on the power of money and "position", things can get out of hand when the facades of the illusion start to fail and the reality of the unknown is revealed.

    So much of this world is already set up for mobile phones and their use for banking type needs.

    CA$H is on the way out as that is the master plan it seems. And the so called barter system doesn't work well with most as most are blinded by the illusion of money and finding a easy way to get sum. I have met many that believe that their owning something makes it worth more then if someone else owns it.

    I spelled some to go with the $

    I don't mind to trade but many have an inflated view of the value of their item which makes it hard to work a deal....i am always willing to trade for copper and will give current value for it but very few have ever taken me up on the offer

    Well I received my payments quickly back from Poshmark by PayPal.

    It seems that many Poshmark sellers put items up for sale then "forget" about them as they get BU$Y with other things.

    I've been selling items online for a year now as hobby. First items to sell were old clothes I had that didn't fit, some clothes new. Nothing I listed on poshmark sold, and they only let you chose their method of shipping which is too expensive, and the fees they take are too high, 20%. It looks to me poshmark is only good for selling new and expensive women's clothing and jewlery.

    Well I got banned on ebay for no reason, so mercari was my only option. At that time mercari had the lowest fees of all the three. Now their fees have risen the same as ebay's, but if you're selling used but good condition clothes go mercari, things just sell fastest there from my experience.
