I'm sure this will be welcome news for Poshmark sellers, especially when compared to how other marketplace are handling peak season fees and postage increases.
eBay and Etsy of course gain a de facto fee increase any time shipping rates go up because they charge seller fees on the total price including shipping.
And Amazon is introducing a peak holiday fulfillment fee for the first time ever, adding an average $0.35 fee per item for FBA orders.
What do you think of Poshmark's decision not to increase shipping prices? Should other marketplaces do more to help take the sting out of rising shipping costs and peak surcharges?
