Shipping is a major component of online reselling. Poshmark makes shipping orders very simple. By collaborating with the United States Postal Service (USPS), Poshmark provides you as a seller the option to use free shipping boxes to fulfill orders.
THE BENEFITS OF USING USPS MAILING BOXES FOR POSHMARK
This benefit is amazing for two reasons (1) It takes the worry off of you as the seller to find and purchase mailing boxes, and (2) the boxes are shipped directly to your door for FREE! I highly recommend that you go online and place the free order for the mailing boxes so that you can accumulate a stash of shipping supplies.
The free USPS mailing boxes are also available in your local Post Office, however I have found that it is hit or miss—especially if you live in a major city where the post office gets a lot of traffic. The other reason I suggest ordering the free boxes online is that you don’t want to pack your order at the Post Office.
There are specific rules you need to follow when using the USPS mailing boxes, check the Poshmark Support page for the latest updates.

WHERE CAN I ORDER MAILING LABEL STICKERS?
So….while the mailing boxes are free, you will still need to print the postage label to add to the mailing boxes. The great thing is that Poshmark generates the mailing label for you, so all you have to do is print it and add it to the box.
You can keep your cost at a minimum by printing your mailing labels on regular paper and taping them to the box. I personally like to use the sticker mailers. Below are links to low-cost Mailing labels.

Using the free mailing boxes from USPS makes shipping Poshmark so easy. If you are new to Poshmark you definitely want to go this route so that you can keep you start up cost low.
