Collaboration with noissue.
Let’s face it, we all fall for cute packaging.
When it comes to packaging and shipping on Poshmark, you want to be quick and consistent with timing and quality. I typically ship the next day, except for the weekends. Just a little extra time and thought into the way you package your items encourages people to leave positive reviews and boost your seller rating! We all want to get those 5 stars!
The only problem is that so much of the mainstream packaging materials we use are bad for the environment; they take forever to decompose, or they never do at all. Using eco-friendly packing and shipping materials is something I really want to be more diligent about.
Here are some tips that I have found useful when I ship on Poshmark.
noissue was founded to provide makers, brands and businesses of all sizes with custom, sustainable packaging.
They are eco-friendly and fully customizable and their products are compostable made from plant based and recycled materials. Their shipping bags can be home composted!
Sustainability has been getting more and more important to me over the past couple of years, especially when it comes to packaging. I am so excited to be able to share this amazing company with you all. If you have a small business I would recommend you consider noissue for your packaging needs.
Here are some helpful tips that I have learned when shipping on Poshmark that I want to share with you.
Neatly Folded & Clean.
It may seem like a given, but I have seen both neatly folded and items just tossed in the package without much thought. When an item is neatly folded, I am way more likely to order from that seller again. It shows that they care enough to take extra time. I wash every item before I list it. If it has been in storage for a while I like to wash it again before shipping it out so it’s nice and fresh.
The gift doesn’t have to be anything fancy. I like to pick up sets of mini products or hold onto samples I get in skincare orders. I recently picked up a couple sets of sweet little hair accessories that I split up, adding one or two to each package. I only put gifts in with purchases over $10
Thank You Note.
Sweet and straightforward is best. Thank the buyer by name, if any specifics were discussed about the purchase you can mention those as well. It adds a thoughtful touch that makes the package feel special.
Wrap it securely.
Some items need more protective wrapping than others, but simple clothing items don’t require too much as they aren’t breakable. Just make sure it is secure enough that it will stay folded neatly.
There you have it! Super simple, just takes a few minutes but it makes a big difference, it’s worth the extra effort.
Whether you are a small business orsomeone who sends lots of things to family and friends, I would recommend you look into noissue. Most of us want to be more considerate when it comes to the earth, and there is no time like the present to start doing better.
