When it comes to statuses within eBay and the benefits this can provide, this is where all the hard work of gaining positive feedback and 5* DSR’s comes in.
There are two key upper ratings of eBay sellers, these are Power Sellers this is based on the number of items you sell, and increases from bronze to silver, to gold depending on how many items you sell.
Then there’s Top Rated Sellers this is based not only on how many items you sell but the ratings you achieve in feedback from you’re buyers, this status is much harder to get than a Power Seller rating, but the benefits it provides are in turn much better too.
