Selling and Buying: Bargaining gently used items online
Introduction to Poshmark.com
There are millions of online stores to choose from. Online stores make sure they get your attention also with many advertisements, such as "Sign up for our newsletter to get a discount". Most online stores are expensive. Shipping is usually free after $50.00 of purchase. So, yes, the items may be on sale, but shipping is where it hurts.
There is an online store that is kind-of like a "classy thrift store". The name is Poshmark.com.
On Poshmark.com, one may buy or sell anything from clothes to Crock-Pots to Keurigs to shoes. Really anything! A good place to buy or sell and save regardless of newsletter discounts. I, personally, buy but not sell.
The items have a page of their own with the seller, the amount asked for, shipping, payment buttons, etc. One may outright buy with a credit card or PayPal. However, one may make an offer. Buyer and seller may decline offers, accept offers, or counteroffers.
If you "liked" an item, a seller might contact you with a percentage off and discounted shipping. Regular shipping for any item is $7.11, where with alerts from sellers, shipping could be decreased to $4.99. I have even scored free shipping once.
Some items may have only been used once. However, any item is gently used and always in good shape. My purchases have always looked brand new.
