What's Poshmark share jail?

Poshmark share jail is a mechanism to prevent spam on their platform.

Spam

If you share too much or too fast, they will put you in share jail.

It means you won’t be able to share again, until a certain time.

It’s a good thing because if there was no limit, the platform would be unusable.

People would be using “stupid” bots sharing every millisecond, all day long.

PS: If you want a clever bot, please check out ours!

Your feed would be changing so fast and you couldn’t catch up with anything.

Many other platforms have that kind of limitation to preserve them.

If you try to follow a lot of people on Twitter or add a ton of friends on Facebook, in a short period of time, your account will be restricted.

Poshmark share jail the same thing.

It’s a warning message to tell you “Please stop to do that!”.

What’s Poshmark share limit per day?

Poshmark share limit

The daily limit for sharing on Poshmark is 10,000 items per day.

We recommend staying below this limit and even way below.

A good limit is 4.000 to 5.000 shares per day.

But that probably already sounds a lot to you.

Actually, a lot of Poshmark sellers share manually that amount of items daily.

We have customers that spent 3 to 4 hours every day to share manually, before using Closet Valet.

If you use a bot like the Closet Valet, 4.000 shares a day is a breeze.

It’ll save you hundreds of hours every year that you can spend on something else.

But that’s another story.

Let’s get back to our main topic.

So, we think there is more about Poshmark share limits.

The second limit we think exists, is the time between two shares.

We can imagine a human cannot share an item every millisecond.

But there is no exact public number on that one.

It’s common sense to think that a human could only share one item every few seconds for a few hours.

So that’s the limit we expect between each share: 2 to 3 seconds.

We also think people cannot share 5.000 items in a row without pausing.

A sharing session of 2 to 3 hours seems to be normal for a human.

Here is a quick recap of Poshmark share limits:

  1. Limit of 10.000 shares per day but stay around 5.000
  2. Share every 2-3 seconds maximum
  3. Limit your sharing “sessions” to 2-3 hours

Following our recommendations will help you to stay within the limits.

And you will be able to share as many items as you want.

Of course, the Closet Valet respects those limits.

Cannot share anymore on Poshmark?

It’s going to take forever!

Wait one more day.

Rinse and repeat until you aren’t in jail anymore.

Humm, but I use a Poshmark bot?

Ok so you have been using a Poshmark bot.

We suppose it’s not the Closet Valet, otherwise it won’t happen!

We suggest stopping that bot immediately.

How to avoid Poshmark share jail?

It’s quite obvious.

You need to stay below those 10,000 allowed shares per 24-hour period.

Actually, you should stay at around 4,000 to 5,000 shares per day.

Easier said than done.

If you share your closet items manually, it’s quite hard to monitor.

How many items did you share today?

How many items remaining for today?

It's not easy to determine.

A good method would be to keep track of how many shares you can do per hour.

Then you multiply by the number of hours you spent sharing.

You keep a 10% safe margin so you stay below this number.

Monitoring your daily shares is a good argument in favor of the ClosetValet!

Not only it shares for you, but also respects those limits and shows the number of daily shares in your dashboard.

Early signs before the Poshmark share jail?

One indicator is the Google CAPTCHAs popping up when you try to share something.

Poshmark is indicating that it thinks you are a bot.

So, they want to make sure you are a human by having you pass a CAPTCHA.

Google CAPTCHA

It clearly means they have suspicions about your account.

That’s the first sign of a probable share jail coming for you...

At this point, you should start to slow down your actions.

If after some time, a Google CAPTCHA pops-up again, you should pause for a day.

Otherwise, you are going to be in jail really soon, and on the long run, it can start to affect your account and sales.

What are the consequences of Poshmark share jail?

There is one immediate consequence for being in jail.

You will make less sales today, since you can’t share anything.

Some sellers are selling $2,000 of items every day on Poshmark.

For them, it can mean a pretty big loss in turnover.

On the long run, being in share jail too often can really harm your account.

Poshmark knows how many times you have been in share jail.

The more jails you had, the less authoritative your account will be.

It means, you’ll see starting less followers, less likes and less sales.

That’s because Poshmark gives less importance to your account.

For Poshmark, you are classified as a spammy account and you aren’t their favorite anymore.

Google CAPTCHA

So, we suggest avoiding being in share jail too often at all cost.

It can happen a few times to you and there won’t be huge consequences.

But you should learn from your mistakes and adapt.
