Becoming a PowerSeller
PowerSellers enjoy special benefits, including:
Priority customer support
Opportunities to participate in research
As a PowerSeller, you also have the opportunity to qualify for Top-rated seller status, which recognizes sellers who have a proven track record of excellent customer service and sales.
What are the requirements?
To qualify for the PowerSeller program, sellers need to consistently sell a significant volume of items, provide a high level of service to their buyers, maintain a positive Feedback score, and meet the requirements for detailed seller ratings and eBay Purchase Protection and PayPal Purchase Protection case standards. Membership in the program is free.
You don't need to apply for the PowerSeller program. If you qualify, you'll automatically be included. Just check your Seller Dashboard to see if you've achieved PowerSeller status. PowerSeller levels include Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Titanium depending on the number of items you've sold or the dollar amount of your sales.
If you're not a PowerSeller yet, you can always work your way up by meeting these requirements:
Be registered with eBay for at least 90 days.
Have an account in good standing.
Maintain a positive Feedback of 98% or higher over the past 12 months.
Follow all eBay policies.
Have a minimum of 100 transactions and $1,000 (effective June 1, 2012) in sales with Global buyers over the past 12 months.
Receive at least a 4.60 average from Global buyers across all 4 detailed seller ratings (DSRs).
For all transactions with Global buyers, have no more than 1.20% of transactions with low DSRs (1s or 2s) on item as described, and a maximum of 2.40% of low DSRs on communication, shipping time, and shipping and handling cost.
If your account falls below these requirements, you may lose your PowerSeller status.
