Poshmark - Waste of Time and Effort

The TV ad they have running has the girl stating she made $10,000 on Poshmark. They are either lying or the girl has a nice fat bank account. Why? Because unless you have money, it is impossible to "build" a business on Poshmark, since they hold the funds until 3 days after After the item is delivered. I don't know abut others but I certainly cannot wait 7 business days for payment, especially on larger items. Basically you are stuck selling small profit items for which they take 10% commission. The only ones growing on Poshmark is Poshmark. Obviously, Poshmark cater toward the big companies. Us smaller companies can never grow on Poshmark due to their unfair business model. I have gotten to the point where I just don't spend much time on Poshmark anymore.

I have never used or purchased anything from this company but I woke up to messenger texts from PayPal that I had over $800 worth of charges from this company and there is no way to get in touch with them! PayPal doesnt even have contact information other than an email.

I only have received the same animated response from you repeatedly and now no response at all. I have received Zero response from your merchant/seller. I went to the Better Business Bureau and seeking legal action against you and youre seller attainable. I am holding you and your seller accountable so this kind of fraudulent scam doesn't happen to anyone else. I requested for the product to be delivered or my money refunded but you have chosen to ignore my attempts to resolve this injustice and turn this into a legal battle. I would like my $258.68 place back into my account immediately. Why would company do this this to a customer, I have no I dear but it is wrong and illegal.

I made a $900 purchase last week of a LV purse and wallet bundle. In less than a minute, my purchase was cancelled. When I messaged the seller asking why, she said she would take $200 less if I paid through some other app or Zelle. She then asked me to text her. I did,...

This is pretty much how Poshmark operates.. they protect the scammers and allow them to block you and NEVER punish or shut them down!

I had a scammer block me from commenting as well and she's still selling even after I tried to complain directly to Poshmark. Their customer service and protection is NON-EXISTENT!

Poshmark - Worst experience ever!
Had 2 days to return hat sent full of stains and printer broke. I paid myself to ship so item was returned to vendor by their timeline. This was around 10/ 24. Sent photos of hat and USPS tracking slip. Keep getting same letter, about 4 times now, thanks for contacting support, stating they will get back to me in 24 hr. time. The worst incompetent customer service ever. Annie is who I have been dealing with.

Poshmark - It is completely inconceivable that a "reputable" company would not have a phone number

My account was hacked into and someone bought a $700 watch. I cannot contact the seller directly, and I cannot contact Poshmark. I'm left with filing a paypal complaint, and being told I may get my money back in 7-10 days. Who the *** is going to make my mortgage payment with that money that was stolen? That apparently Poshmark doesn't give a *** about.

Poshmark - Lawsuit

Has anyone looked into filing a lawsuit? They can't leggally run the business like this. Buyers will pay for the shipping, but if they are not happy with their purchase for any reason, they can't return the item unless it is defective. They charge sellers a ridicules fees for exchanges and 20% of their sales.

Yes, lately I have been thinking we need to look into a class action lawsuit against their business practices. There must be a lawyer out there that would be willing to take a class action suit on. All they have to do is read here and the BBB and elsewhere.

I agree...A Class action is needed, I stated this earlier this morning on this site. I had a return come to me with items MISSING yet Posh refunded buyer 100% but I only got 60% of my items back.

I opened a dispute but they've ignored me. I've sold online for 21 years now and never have had/seen the problems that occur on Poshmark.
