Poshmark is no longer the marketplace where you just list an item for selling and poshers will go crazy about it. Over the years, the social commerce platform has evolved into a very competitive marketplace where now sellers have to really put effort into selling their products.
However, the good thing is that Poshmark is also introducing new features to help those sellers who are willing to make efforts and offer value to their buyers. One of these features is “Silent Show” which enables sellers to attract more potential buyers.
In today’s blog, we will be discussing what Poshmark Silent Show is. Moreover, we will reveal to you the new tool or feature by Posh Sidekick that you can use to automate posh show silent auction. So let’s start:
What are Posh Shows?
“Posh Shows” refer to selling sessions that take place on the Poshmark platform. These sessions are scheduled and hosted by sellers, and they provide an interactive way for sellers to showcase and sell their items to potential buyers. Posh Shows are typically 15 to 30 minutes in duration, however, they can be long up to one hour.
During a Posh Show, the seller chooses a theme around which he will center his selling session. The theme can be very specific, such as “Nike Air Max 90 Shoes,” focusing on a particular brand or product, or it can be more general, like “Stuff I Like,” allowing the seller to showcase a broader range of items.
There are two types of Posh Shows:
- Live Show
- Silent Show
What Is A Silent Show on Poshmark?
A silent show is an auction-style event where Poshmark sellers can showcase their listings through a visual presentation without appearing on screen or speaking. It is called a silent show because it doesn’t require sellers to talk or appear on the screen.
Setting up a silent show is really easy as sellers just need to select one listing from the listings available in their closet to start the auction. Moreover, they need to select a starting price for the item. As the auction progresses, the show display images of the listed items, allowing buyers to view them. The auction continues while the photos cycle through the listings.
During the silent show, buyers can ask questions about the items through the chat feature, and as a seller, you can only respond to these inquiries via text chat since there is no sound or video communication available.
