Using the seller dashboard

Another aspect of managing your eBay business is to constantly gauge your success as an eBay seller in the eyes of eBay. Your Detailed Seller Ratings (DSRs) from buyer feedback (see the "Reviewing Your Feedback Profile" QuickFacts later in the chapter) and quantity of sales have direct bearing on whether your listings will rise toward the top in Best Match searches by prospective buyers (the eBay default search), as well as determining PowerSeller discounts. Assuming you have at least ten DSRs in the last year, the Seller Dashboard will give you a snapshot of several metrics that will help you see where you stand, as shown in Figure 5-13 (if you're not a PowerSeller, you'll see how close you are to becoming one).

To view the Seller Dashboard, you can click links in your My eBay My Account sidebar or on your Selling Manager/Selling Manager Pro Summary pages.
