Let’s dive in.
What is a Poshmark Bot?
A Poshmark bot is a tool that automates tasks performed by someone selling items on Poshmark.
A Poshmark bot will assist you in sharing to your followers, sharing to parties, following and unfollowing closets, organizing your closet, etc.
All the features of a Poshmark bot help save you time, and help make you more sales on Poshmark.
Instead of only being able to share items when you are available to share, you can set a Poshmark bot to share while you’re busy.
It allows you to scale your time so you can do other important things in your life.
Most bots are web based, meaning they work in your web browser in the form of a Google Chrome extension, or a Firefox Add-on.
Because the bots are web based, they run tasks on poshmark.com. They don’t work in the mobile app that you have installed on your phone.
So, if you’re looking to use a Poshmark bot, you’ll have an easier time setting it up on your computer. Though, there are some bots that allow you to automate tasks on your phone’s web browser too.
There’s a wide range of bots out there. Some only have a few features, while others have more. Some are buggy and slow, while others are performant and full of time saving features.
In the end, you get what you pay for. A free app isn’t going to have the support, care, and performance of an app that costs money and has regular updates and great customer support.
I’m biased - but the Closet Assistant is the complete package when it comes to Poshmark bots.
Okay, so now that I’ve covered what a Poshmark bot is, now let’s talk about all the great things it can do for you.
Benefits of a Poshmark Bot
Saves you time
As noted above, the most obvious benefit of a Poshmark bot is that it gives you back the time you spend sharing your items.
Even if the bot doesn’t make you any more sales, you’re saving your time (which is the most important thing you have).
You can go from spending hours tapping on your phone, to spending a few seconds setting up the bot.
It can work while you’re at work. It can work while you’re eating. It can work while you’re sleeping. It can work all day so you don’t have to.
That’s pretty sweet.
Makes you more sales
The second most important advantage to using a Poshmark bot is that you’ll end up making more sales.
By sharing your items more, they are getting in front of your followers. Every time you share an item to your followers, it shows up in their feed.
During a party, you can automatically share your items to the party. This increases the chances of you selling that item.
Not every item is sold from the feed or parties, the majority are sold through searching for an item. But, sales from the main feed and parties are a close second.
Not only do you have a higher chance of making a sale, but you can also increase an item’s likes and comments.
By having more likes, your item looks more attractive to a potential buyer. It also ranks higher when people search for the item you’re selling.
Grows your closet
Using a Poshmak bot, you can expect a lot more followers and engagement with your closet.
Getting followers comes from sharing other people’s items instead of your own.
Getting more followers means that every time you share an item to your followers, it’s showing up in more feeds across the platform.
The more followers you have on your closet the easier it is to sell more items.
By sharing other people’s items during a party, you can expect to get lots of followers fast.
A bot will be able to share pretty fast, and you can get thousands of followers in a single day if you play your cards right.
Turns your closet from a hobby to a business
If you’re here, you probably want to make more sales on Poshmark.
By making more sales, you can achieve your income goals and do some more of the things you want to do in your life.
A good Poshmark bot is an investment towards a future where you can spend time running your business, not sharing items all day.
There’s a lot of other things to do on Poshmark other than sharing. Listing items, talking to potential customers, shipping items, organizing items in your home, etc.
Your Poshmark business is better off if you have more time to do those business-critical tasks, instead of sharing your items and following closets all day.
Okay, so there’s some of the benefits of using a Poshmark bot.
But, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Let’s talk about the downside of using a Poshmark bot.
Controversy surrounding bots on Poshmark
Here’s the short version: It’s against the Poshmark community guidelines.
What does that mean, exactly?
Well, it means that it’s frowned upon. It also means it puts you at risk of getting your closet banned from the platform.
It’s not illegal, but it’s something that Poshmark and the community at large are trying to keep off of the platform.
Straight from the Poshmark Community Guidelines, here’s what it says:
“Do not use programs or other forms of automation to participate on Poshmark. This includes, but is not limited to liking, sharing, following, and unfollowing.”
As far as penalties go, here’s what they say will happen if they find out you’ve been using a Poshmark bot:
“Should we find your account to be in violation of any of the above, we may send you an email or take permanent or temporary action on your account privileges.”
So, yeah. It’s a risk. It’s up to you whether that risk is big enough for you to take the leap and start using a bot.
There’s several things that Poshmark has put in place that keep you from abusing the platform.
Next, let’s talk about why you won’t get banned for using a bot on Poshmark.
Poshmark bot limitations
Poshmark has gone out of their way to ensure that you can’t abuse the platform and use it to spam other users.
Because of this, it’s impossible for you to use a Poshmark bot to do whatever you want.
Poshmark has put limitations on the number of items you can share in a day and the number of people you can follow.
It’s commonly said that the maximum daily allowance for shares and follows on the platform is 10000 (ten thousand) in a single day. That means you can do upwards of 10000 shares in a 24 hour day and not get banned from the platform.
However, it get’s a little more complicated.
Depending on how fast you share your items, Poshmark will automatically pop up a CAPTCHA to ensure that you’re not a bot. You have to prove that you are a human being who is sharing really fast.
Because of this, you can’t share as fast as you want and get away with it. You have to abide by the rules.
Luckily, there are Poshmark bots that will even solve CAPTCHAs for you so it can keep sharing without you needing to be at your computer.
It’s recommended that you stay well within the numbers so you don’t get your closet banned off of the platform.
I recommend not doing more than 4000 shares in a day, and sharing very slow so that your shares get spread throughout the day.
Not only that, but sharing in a random order and/or in random time intervals will help you stay out of the limelight.
Using a Poshmark bot is a competitive advantage over the average seller on the platform, and some people don’t like that.
It’s taboo in most Poshmark communities to talk about using bots and automation. Most people get a lot of flack if they do, and it’s almost always frowned upon.
On the surface, a Poshmark bot is a competitive advantge. But, under the hood it’s not as significant as you would think.
The main advantage is in the time that you save. But, because of the limitations that Poshmark has in place, there’s no way you can share more than other people.
Everyone gets limited by the number of shares they can do in a day.
Should you use a Poshmark bot?
Well, you have to balance the advantages and disadvantages.
It’s up to you to decide if the good outweighs the bad, and if you’re willing to take the risk for a significant increase in time and sales.
A good Poshmark bot gives you the ability to get your time back, while not allowing you to get past the limitations that Poshmark has put in place.
You can’t abuse the platform, so there’s a low chance you’ll actually get banned for using one.
Thanks for reading this post! I hope you got something out of it, and that you’ll consider trying out a Poshmark bot.
