Good Morning,

Headquartered in Redwood City, California, Poshmark is the latest player in India’s thriving social commerce space. 

After moving beyond North America, with a launch in Australia in February 2021, the company began operations in India this October. Despite the crowded local ecommerce space, the co-founders believe there is still a place for new social commerce spaces, especially in the pre-loved category. 

In a conversation with YourStory, Manish Chandra, Founder and CEO, Poshmark, and Anuradha Balasubramaniam, Head of Poshmark India Marketplace, map their journey so far and discuss their hopes for the company’s expansion in India. 

“Currently, there is no organised social marketplace where Indians can buy and sell new, pre-loved and sustainable fashion directly from each other. Poshmark offers its users this engaging, secure platform where buyers and sellers can connect, build businesses and connections, and thrive as a community,” Anuradha tells YourStory. Read more
