Poshmark is one of the biggest online marketplaces with fashion and accessories. There are common and luxury brands. The variety of both sellers and brands is huge but here is the catch. Poshmark doesn’t offer international shipping (yet).
So, if you want to order goods from Poshmark and ship them to your country, you can’t. Right? Wrong!
All you need to do is to use the Planet Express package forwarding service. It works in 3 simple steps:
In the 1st step, we are going to show you how to get a free US address for receiving the goods.
In the 2nd step, we order the goods from Poshmark.com.
And in the last, 3rd step, we will guide you through customs declaration and choosing the delivery methods.
Stores Similar To Poshmark
1st Step – Get the Free US Address For Receiving the Goods
Setting up the US shipping address for receiving goods from Poshmark.com and other US stores can be done in a few minutes. You have to create the US address because of Poshmark ships to the US and Canadian addresses only (updated on the 21st of January 2020).
Our address will allow you to receive goods from Poshmark. Then you can forward it to your country. To get your new US address, visit our sign up page.
Our user interface is translated into English, Czech, Japanese, Arabic, Russian and Spanish.
Verify Your Email Address
Once you confirm the signup form, the verification email will be sent. Sometimes it is marked as spam, please, check your spam/promotion folders.
Verify the email address by clicking the verification button in the email.
Set Up Your Delivery Address
After the first login to our application, you will be asked to fill in your delivery address details. This is the address where we are going to forward your packages.
You can add several delivery addresses if you want to ship something to your family and friends.
Confirm the USPS 1583 form too. Otherwise, we won’t be able to receive the packages for you.
Activate Your US Address
To this moment, your account has been created but the US address is still not activated. Activate it by adding a $5 deposit. We use this deposit from preventing spambots and fraudsters from abusing our service. The deposit is refundable, this means that you can use it towards your first order or get it back eventually.
We offer several payment methods and we also accept Bitcoin.
As an example, we have used the credit card payment method.
Now your US address is activated. You can find it on the DASHBOARD in your account.
The Californian Planet Express address format is the following:
17224 S. Figueroa Street, Suite #C****
Gardena, CA (California) 90248
Please, remember that the prices in the US stores are shown without the sales-tax. The sales tax in California is 9.5 %. We also offer a sales-tax-free address in Portland, Oregon. You can get this address by activating the premium account.
2nd Step – Ordering the Goods at Poshmark.com
Ordering the goods at Poshmark.com is very similar to ordering goods at other online stores. The only difference is that at Poshmark, there are a number of sellers so the products are not sent from warehouses but usually from the sellers themselves.
Once you select the goods you want to order, click BUY NOW.
Fill in the delivery address. Use your Planet Express address from your account dashboard.
The Poshmark’s system will offer you an edited address. You can leave it and click NEXT.
Select the payment method that suits you the best, double-check and confirm the order.
Orders from Poshmark.com are delivered within 1-2 weeks depending on the seller. Once we receive your order, you will get a notification email. If nothing happens for a longer period of time:
1. The email has been delivered (this means the package has been delivered to our warehouse) but it is marked as spam. Please, check your spam/promotion folders.
2. The package has not been delivered yet
a) It is still on its way – wait for a few more days.
b) You are a victim of a scam of the seller (contact the Poshmark support).
3. The package has been delivered to our warehouse but there is a missing suite ID. We were not able to link the package to your account so it has been marked as an UNKNOWN PACKAGE. Please, contact us and send us an invoice or screenshot of the order so we are sure the package belongs to you. Then it is going to be added to your account.
3rd Step – Getting Poshmark International Shipping
This is how the notification email looks like:
The email contains the most important info about the package (name, incoming tracking number, dimensions, weight, etc.).
To complete the customs declaration, login to your account.
Customs Declaration – What is it and Why Do you Have to Fill it In?
The customs declaration is a document that is used by customs officers. Thanks to it, they have better control over the goods importing to their country. You have to fill in the customs declaration in our system before the mailout, without it, the package cannot be sent.
If the package value is over the de minimis thresholds for your country, you will have to pay import duties like VAT and customs. Feel free to calculate the import duty with the SimplyDuty tool.
We recommend including the real value of the goods contained in the package. There is one good reason for that: The package can be damaged or even lost during transport. If you open a claim eventually, you will be refunded the price of the shipping + value of the goods stated in declaration (not the real value of the goods) + price for our additional services.
How to Fill In the Customs Declaration?
Now you know what is a customs declaration good for. Let’s fill it in.
Product description – what do you ship? Fill this field in English. Here you can find a list of prohibited items.
Quantity – how much is it?
Value – what is the value of 1 piece in USD?
Origin – where it comes from? Usually from the US.
Batteries – does the package contains batteries?
Gift or Merchandise?
If the content of the package is for personal use (gift), mark it as a GIFT. Remember that marking the package as a gift doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay customs from it!
MERCHANDISE is usually something that is intended to be resold. This option should use everyone that sells the items from the US to other people/businesses.
Video tutorial: How to fill in the customs declaration.
Below you can see properly completed declaration for a book This is Marketing by Seth Godin:
First, at all, add the individual items contained in the package to the declaration form. Once you complete that, click on SAVE. If you want to send the package to your country immediately, click SAVE AND MAILOUT.
Please, double-check the final value of the package. The quantity and value fields are multiplied so if the package contains 2 same items, fill in the value for 1 item and set the quantity to 2.
If you need to ship the package as soon as possible, select PRIORITY MAILOUT. We will move the package to the beginning of the queue so it will be sent first.
What Delivery Method Should you Use?
Once you complete the customs declaration, you will be able to select the shipping method from the US to your country.
Planet Mail Economy / Express and USPS Priority / Express fall under the size & weight limits. This means that these methods don’t have to be available all the time.
There is No Method Available?
1. Check your delivery address. Make sure it is correctly filled in.
2. You try to ship standalone PI965 batteries that are prohibited due to safety reasons – place a special request so we can return the package to the seller or Trash the package.
3. The value in customs declaration is too high (more than $2500 for USPS, $6000 for FedEx and for $8000 DHL).
4. The package is too big/heavy due to our mistake. Report it.
5. The problem is on our side, please, contact us.
Video: How to send a package?
We recommend using cheaper methods like Planet Mail Economy / Express and USPS Priority / Express for fragile and softer packages, and also if you want to save some money. These methods don’t offer detailed package tracking and take a longer time to deliver. They are ideal for packages from Poshmark.
Tip: You can calculate the price of the shipping in advance (even before you receive the package) with our postage calculator.
Use DHL Worldwide Express and FedEx Priority / Economy methods if you ship valuable or fragile goods, or if you need the package as soon as possible. The delivery costs are higher but the tracking info is updated faster and package insurance is included.
Should I Pay for Insurance?
You can also pay for the insurance if you want. It is not necessary but we highly recommend it. Some of the employees of the shipping companies don’t take care of the packages very well. During the transport, the package can be damaged. In extreme situations, the package can be lost or confiscated by your local government.
Please, remember, we cannot influence these circumstances. However, if you pay for the insurance, you will get refunded the price of the shipping + value in the customs declaration + price for additional services.
Make Sure The Package Contents Are Ok
Once you receive your package, make sure its content is not damaged. If it is, follow the instructions on how to open a claim page.
We made a short unboxing video of a package sent by USPS Priority.
