bundle: When a customer purchases more than one item from you at the same time, it’s called a bundle. You will get one shipping label for all items, saving the customer on shipping costs.

Posh Party: Throughout the day (at 9 AM, 12 PM, 4 PM, and 7 PM PST) Poshmark has themed “parties” to which Poshers can share their relevant listings. These listings stay in the party “showroom” for Poshers to shop during and after the party. As opposed to regular sharing where only your followers see your listing, items you share to Posh parties are visible to anyone viewing the party listings.

host pick (HP): Each Posh party is hosted by several Poshers, who each choose about 50 listings that they like and that fit the party theme. Any listing chosen by a Posh party host is called a “host pick”.

CCO: Closet Clear Out is a sale that Poshmark runs. When you reduce the list price of an item by 10% of the lowest historical price, Poshmark will send all likers a reduced shipping cost offer for a limited time.

OTL: Offers To Likers is a pricing feature that allows you to lower the list price of an item and offer a shipping discount. Poshmark will then notify anyone who has “liked” the item about the discount.
