Becoming a PowerSeller

PowerSellers are among the most successful sellers on eBay in product sales and customer satisfaction.

PowerSeller benefits

PowerSellers enjoy special benefits, including:

  • Priority customer support

  • PowerSeller best practice discussion board

Becoming a PowerSeller is different to qualifying for Top Rated Seller status, which recognises 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. 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

  • Have a Feedback score of 100 or more, with at least 98% positive Feedback over the past 12 months

  • Follow all eBay policies

  • Have a minimum of 100 transactions and $1,000 USD in sales with Australian buyers over the past 12 months

  • Receive at least a 4.40 average from Australian buyers across all four detailed seller ratings (DSRs)

  • For all transactions with Australian buyers, have no more than 1.00% of transactions with low DSRs (1s or 2s) on item as described, and a maximum of 2.00% of low DSRs on communication, postage time, and postage and handling cost.

If your account falls below these requirements, you may lose your PowerSeller status.
