    Hi,
    I'm using a bot to follow people, after a while I get this message asking me to check a box to confirm I'm a human but I can't see any box... I tried from FF and Chrome. Any idea guys? thanks

    Just wait until you try to delete listings.
    Sometimes your listings will lack a delete button for no apparent reason.

    Poshmark is pretty buggy.

    What page are you following from? That looks like a product page.

    I would suggest following users from other people's followers list, dont use the following list, use the followers list. I only bother going down a few pages as the people at the top tend to be people who have used special characters in their name to show up at the top and those people are almost always higher volume sellers and people with tons more followers and activity than you would find on the bottom of the list.

    Have you logged out and back in? Have you closed all other windows you have open? Are you using a bot or script? Are you following manually? I have noticed this only if i missed the captcha ad the bot carried on running, soon after I got a pop up saying I might be using a bot and that it's against the terms, I should have taken a screen shot of it, but I have not seen that message for months.

    I have never really had this problem though, I have had problems where other things dont seem to be showing up. Sometimes the larger captcha comes up and is open on a window i cant see, so maybe that has happened where it is asking you to click all the squares with a but or something like that.

    Also just an FYI that you can take note of or not. If you have any poshmark questions feel free to post them in the AMA I started for Poshmark and I will get a notification, it was only by chance I saw this and was able to respond. Also the other benefit is that having it all in one place will be helpful to everyone else as it will make it easier to find.

    Here is a tip for you. Put this as your first and last name, just cut and paste it into your name sections.

    EDIT: the square i cut and paste here is not showing up :(

    This square shows up higher than any other symbol. If you add this as your first and last name you will show up at the top of followers and following lists and it brings in hundreds of organic followers each day. You may see a lot of people with a few !!!!!! for their name You can still write the actual name after it as long as you leave a space it will still help it show up at the top of lists. The more people you are following or the more people that follow you the more organic followers you will get each day. I have an accounts that get more than 2,000 followers a day from using things like !, #, * and squares like the one above.

    lol yeah that aspect sucks, but I thought you could only not delete if it was a sold item. or an item that went through the sale process but not all the way.

    @M4DM4X another quick set of questions that might lead to the answer.

    How old is the account?
    What actions have you preformed on it?
    Does it have listings yet?
    is it just a sock puppet account for spamming?
    how many people have you followed already?

    Do me a favor and if its just a burner account PM me the account link so I can see it and see if there are any obvious problems with it that make it too apparent that you are up to no good ;)

    Hi William :) Thanks for your help, your AMA thread helped me a lot and I'm very grateful for all the help you give.
    Unfortunately I can't find your thread anymore, I assumed it has been moved to the JrVIP section (which I understand)

    Concerning my problem, I am using a macro (just like your jitbit macro but with another tool) it just replicates human actions automatically. It follows, shares, likes, etc.

    I can't do anything since 2 hours now, I always get this message without being able to click on this invisible checkbox. It seems to be a bug. And I dont want to contact Shopmark team because they will flag me, better stay under the radar :)

    Yes I've logged out and logged in, but same problem.... I don't see what to do. I tried to inspect element but can't find any box code.

    The square character you add to your name, is it one of these ascii ones (unfortunately I can't see it in your message above):




    Thanks for your help, very much appreciated

    I also can't see William's AMA thread anymore.

    @M4DM4X i also created an account yesterday and made me a macro to follow people. I have had the captcha things several times, but i always could check the box. Maybe try to delete all cookies in your browser?
    I have followed 8,5k people by now, but had no problems like you. Wish you luck to solve the problem.

    And an other question: I'm from Europe, so i cannot sell on poshmark. Is there any way to monetize on poshmark otherwise? I filled in a fiverr affiliate link in "my website", but only 2 of my 2,5k followers clicked it by now and did not buy.

    I think you you should of made your own thread for this question but don't expect a lot of people to click your link from Poshmark.
    I have about 30k followers on Poshmark, been a member for a year, am a suggested user, and I haven't seen a single click on my link from there in my analytics. Also, even with 30k followers, sales suck.
    Generally, it's a pretty shitty platform, but some people do well on there.

    So you are selling clothing on Poshmark, but sales are low? Maybe try getting more followers and spam your feed with your listings? If you need help with a macro to auto follow people you can ask me.

    @clamans I tried what you suggested (thx) but still the same message without any checkbox after having cleared all my browser data. That's weird.

    No i dont think it is any of those squares. i'm sure if you go to a few profiles and click on the followers lists you will see someone with one and you can just cut and paste it from there.

    My bad I'm sorry about suggesting that. I forgot it was moved there. Yes it was moved to the Jr VIP section at the request of a few people. So sorry to anyone missed it. I have gone over the issues you are having in the PM you sent, it is 100% the age and the look of the profile and the actions preformed on such a new account. but hey this is all a learning process for everyone so testing is always a good thing.

    Nah I'm going to get one of the front page Reddit services on here and make it super public. lol only joking of course I wont ;)

    that's the thing, as long as you are there to check it you will never have a problem. i have been doing something similar for months and it's totally fine. It just looks like a real human to them unlike most scripts and bots. Try other interactions like hearting items, commenting on items but dont post links and make sure you have a batch of responses to choose from so you are not posting the same thing over and over again in a row. if you want you can do the same thing and send me your profile in a PM so i can give you my opinion. needless to say m4dm4x's was not great, and I'm sure he does not mind me saying that as we are all here to learn and progress. We all have to start somewhere. the look and feel is a big part of getting clicks with these types of methods so that needs to be spot on to get a chance. hearting items gets you a WAY better rate of people coming to check out the profile. out of those 2,5k people probably only a few came to the profile and even less of them click through. however when you preform comments and hearts you get WAY more people

    Do you have a call to action asking them to click on it? is it just a normal link to a site, if so there is not much need for them to do so, but if you have just a promotional account with no items they are much more likely to click. if you are selling items the way the site was intended for though people tend to stick on poshmark and dont think of clicking elsewhere. but if your profile is set up to drive them to click on it you would see much higher numbers doing so. All platforms have their quirks, if you have been on there a year and only have 30k followers that tells me you dont spend too much time utilizing the site features to promote. Also being a suggested user really means bugger all these days, the hardest part of that is getting 15 sales and quite frankly that can be done in a matter of hours with a brand new account so it does not mean what it used to. back in the day it was a great boost but with the growing popularity there is a bigger pool for them to choose from when displaying suggested users. I have accounts that get up to 30k followers within the first two weeks, but that is because I have bots running, so ones experience and success with using the site can be greatly increased by utilizing all the features and trying to set up efficient methods of promotion.

    Unless you are offering that for free you would be breaking the rules. I would like to think you are not touting some paid service as that would be against the rules here at your current level.

    Yep it's totally fine to say my profile and method are crap :D
    I am good at promoting amazon stuff, but the rest is just a big black hole for me for now. But I'm consistant and like to learn new things, and your method grabbed my attention since I've read it. Hope to progress soon !

    @William702 Wow ! You have gone thru every bit of the platform. I checked many online tools providing many features but none with auto heart/like. Also I am noob in programming. A funny thing that caught my eye is I am into basic jewelry manufacturing and would love to sell B2B to those amazing ladies. Our margins are tight but them(resellers) still got amazing margins. What do you think - this can work? If yes, what would you do to attract them right on the platform ? P.S : I am not from USA or Canada either.
