Poshmark sellers have been given the opportunity to become a Poshmark Ambassador, which is determined based on a specific set of requirements within your selling account.
The Poshmark Ambassador program is very similar to having a verified account on social media. Posh Ambassador status provides you with the opportunity for more exposure to the Poshmark Community, which can ultimately result in more followers and sales.
Here are the Poshmark Ambassador requirements:
- Community Shares: Share at least 5,000 items from other Poshers’ closets
- Self-Shares: Share your own items at least 5,000 times
- Available Listings: Have at least 50 available listings in your closet
- Listings Sold: Make at least 15 sales
- Average Rating: Have an average rating of at least 4.5 stars
- Average Ship Time: Have an average ship time of less than 3 days
Once you meet ALL of these milestones in your Posh Stats, you may be invited to become a Poshmark Ambassador.
In Poshmark’s earlier days, it was a huge deal to become a “Suggested User” on Poshmark.
The SU status gave sellers the chance to have their “closets” promoted to get in front of new buyers based on the buyers interests and demographics (on the “wheel” as we called it in the Posh community!).
The thing is that not ALL Suggested Users were automatically rolled into the Posh Ambassador program. In fact, there were some requirements that need to be filled (as seen below!) based on your selling statistics.
From “Suggested User” to “Poshmark Ambassador”
I believe that the Poshmark Ambassador program was a huge success for Poshmark and shows they both care about the buyer/seller experience and want to give recognition to sellers who work hard to provide top-notch service to their buyers.
I am a visual person and love seeing the measurable goals given in a real-time chart.
Posh HQ stated in their official blog that the opportunity will also give Poshmark Ambassadors access to special opportunities such as access to fun programs and paid influencer campaigns.

I am loving the Poshmark Ambassador program and here are my top 3 reasons why:
Increase in Poshmark Followers Daily
Since becoming a Suggested User back in April 2017, I feel like I have had a fair amount of time “on the wheel”, averaging about once every 1-2 weeks.
Admittedly, I did not often see any sales during the times that I was on the wheel as a Suggested User.
However, I was happy to see that my following increased significantly, which I knew would directly affect my sales in the long term.
On those occasions, I would see a spike of 500-900 new followers from the Poshmark community.
Increased Sales Since Becoming a Poshmark Ambassador
I have had a more steady stream of sales since becoming a Posh Ambassador.
I feel as though this is a direct result of being suggested to others on Poshmark, especially to new users. This is why it is super important to maintain an active closet.
Poshmark Ambassadors Are Being Held to High Standards
I am very pleased to see that there are higher expectations being placed on the Poshmark Ambassadors to not only get accepted into the Poshmark Ambassador program, but to maintain their status overall.
I work really hard to give my buyers an experience that I would want if I were the customer, so it’s nice to know that is expected of other sellers in the community as well. It’s so important to provide great customer service.
If you are serious about making money on Poshmark, I highly suggest that you become an ambassador.
