      eBay Top Rated sellers - How Much More Profit for TRS?

      This month I got an eBay Top Rated Seller badge on my page (finally!) so now I'm hoping my profits see a boost.

      As an eBay top rated seller, are profits better? I know that top rated sellers get discounts off their listings - do those discounts really help?

      As a top rated seller on eBay, you do get up to 20 percent off fixed price listings. However, you shouldn't expect your profit to take a leap.

      What you should see is better placement for your listings. Getting on page one under "best match" listings can lead to more sales which then helps your profits.

      Yes, I am looking forward to better listings. I reached power seller and top rated seller at the same time so I haven't been able to experience any of that yet.

      TRS is a benefit and a burden. You have to hope you don't deal with a mean customer who gives you a 1 or 2 or you won't even have the chance to think about a better profit margin.

      Honestly, I do not think TRS can help your profit as much as getting a better price from a supplier.

      You can get better profit margins through the discounts, just learn how to use them.

      Since you are a new TRS, thoroughly read eBay's guidelines and benefits for the program so you know what to take advantage of.

      For example, I've been a TRS for six months and saved a lot of money through the multi-variation fixed price listing.

      My profits increased when I became a top rated seller because my listings were prominent. The discounts helped too, but really, you still have a lot of work to do to make a good profit.

      So there is not a big jump in profits once you reach TRS?

      Hi Lee,

      You might not immediately see a jump in profits, but TRS will help you gradually build more confidence with eBay buyers. And this will help you grow and in time generate higher profit. TRS will not magically boost your sales, but it is a great opportunity to reach more costumers, receive more feedback and understand their needs quicker.
