Cross-listing is one of the most important tools for the success of any Poshmark Reseller. But what is it? Why is it so important? How do you cross-list? And is there a way to make cross-listing a quicker and less painful journey than it seems to be?

Let’s take a look at the answers to these questions and analyse the path to success you have been looking for as a reseller.

What is Cross-Listing?

Cross-listing is the action of listing your items to sell on many different selling platforms at the same time.

For example: Instead of simply selling (“listing”) a set of items on Poshmark you sell the same set of items on Mercari, Etsy, Facebook Marketplace and also eBay. This is called cross-listing.

Why do it?

Cross Listing Pros and Cons

Cross Listing is the art of selling your product on multiple platforms.

While Cross Listing is a lot of work, it is also very valuable to increasing your exposure and sales. It ensures that your items have much more exposure than they would get on a single selling platform. More people seeing your item increases the chance of a sale, especially considering how most people have one or two platforms they exclusively shop on.

Benefits of cross-listing include:

  • Something that may not be selling well on Poshmark may sell better on Mercari and vice versa.
  • Increased exposure leads to increased sales.
  • In general, your products will sell faster if you are cross-listing.
  • Cross-Listing helped save a month of sales according to one Reddit User:
“Cross listing is worth it. For me I have most of my stuff on Posh and my sales this month went from 5 a week to nothing… Had I not cross-listed it April would have been a disaster.”

Negatives of cross-listing Include:

  • You have to manage your inventory across multiple platforms which can be time consuming
  • Forgetting to de-list an item that is sold elsewhere can lead to problems.
  • It takes a long time to organize your inventory across multiple platforms, especially if your inventory is in the 100s.

There is a lot to do to keep your reselling business from going stale.

You need to ensure that you are performing all the daily tasks (likes, shares, follows, social interaction, offers) while managing inventory, making sales, changing prices, and finding new stock.

Here are some Poshmark tips to help you along:

Do you need a Poshmark Virtual Assistant?

  • While there is nothing wrong with the idea of a VA to help you get through the grind of daily tasks, it does have its downsides. You never know for sure if they are going to put in 100% effort and do the job required. Most VAs are good, but it only takes one bad experience to make you feel like you have to be doing it all yourself. But there are other options. Bots, otherwise known as automation assistants. In fact, the automation assistant by PrimeLister will effectively perform all those daily tasks, and more, taking your worry completely away and putting control in your hands. Check it out here.

Should I be selling on multiple platforms?

  • Absolutely yes. Poshmark cross-listing is vital to the survival of your reselling business. Not only does this give your products more exposure, more shares, more likes, more chances to be seen by that one person who really wants it - it leads to selling faster on Poshmark. As your reputation builds and people begin to trust you and your products, sales become far more likely and frequent.

As a Poshmark seller you may have considered cross-listing before; the differences in each platform can confuse a person, especially when managing a large inventory. Here we will help you to understand the ins and outs of cross-listing on Poshmark, so you can make your business run more efficiently.
