Becoming a Power Seller

A PowerSeller is a merchant that consistently sells a lot of product through eBay and maintains a good feedback rating. There are various benefits, from being able to use the PowerSeller logo— a real credibility builder—to health benefits for you and your employees. (If you're a PowerSeller, there's a good chance you're employing someone to help you.)

To qualify to be a PowerSeller, you must meet certain criteria, both specific and general:

■ You must average at least $1,000 in sales each month, for three consecutive months.

■ You have a feedback rating of at least 100.

Dnote PowerSeller feedback ratings are actually calculated differently from normal feedback

__ratings. The standard calculation only includes a single rating from each person. If a buyer gives you five good ratings, for instance, only one counts in the feedback calculation. The PowerSeller calculation, however, would include all five good feedbacks.

Once you're in, you don't necessarily stay. Eligibility is reviewed every month. You must maintain your account in good standing, maintain your 98-percent positive feedback, and maintain the average monthly sales amount of at least $1,000.
