What is re-listing?
Relisting is a new trend that is common on Mercari and Poshmark. It involves the process of finding an older listing in your profile that has dropped in rankings, duplicating the listing, deleting the old listing, and posting the new one. Under this process, your post will not be flagged for a duplicate piece of content, and you will be able to keep your post at the top of category listings for the date of the post.

How to relist on Poshmark and Mercari Manually
The simplest way to relist on Mercari and Poshmark comes down to using the copy listing selection. Start by locating the listing or group of listings that you would like to relist. Go to the edit page for the listing that you would like to relist, scroll down the edit page to the bottom of the page without making changes to the listing, and then select copy listing.
After you have selected the copy listing button, open a new tab of your Poshmark or Mercari listings in the dropdown menu. As you finalize the new copied listing, wait to click the post button on your newest listing.
Return to the second tab of the original listing and delete it from the listings and then repost your new listing with the updated information. Your new listing will not be flagged for copied content and you will be able to have a top listing spot without any problems.
