      What are the benefits of being an eBay top-rated seller - TRS Program Advantages

      I read many complaints about the eBay top-rated seller status so is it really worth me being excited about? What are the actual benefits of being a top-rated seller?

      Thanks

      There are many benefits to being a top-rated seller on eBay. Yes, there are some problems with the program (it's eBay after all), but it never hurts to be looked upon as a great seller.

      Here are a few of the eBay top rated seller benefits:

      Maximum 20% discount on final value fees
      increased search visibility
      a "top rated seller" badge is displayed on item listing and search result page
      shows eBay users that you have a proven track record

      As a top rated eBay seller you also get to keep the same perks of being a PowerSeller: unpaid item protection, UPS rate discounts, templates for marketing and so on.

      Congrats on reaching the top rated seller milestone!

      Top rated sellers get discounts on listings, but only on fixed price listings. You should see your items reaching page 1 status in "best match" listings too.

      Yes, being a top rated seller is something to be excited about - you are doing something right! Now you just have to figure out how to keep doing it

      Keep your sales up and customers happy. Ebay wont give the exact formula for how TRS are reviewed, but it will occur monthly.

      Do I have to pay for my listing to be more prominent or does that happen automatically?

      eBay offers insurance to their top rated sellers that are a very good benefit. They also have a nonprofit option where you can donate money to your favorite charity.

      "Featured first" is an eBay option only given to top rated sellers. Yes you have to pay for it, but if it makes your item first out of thousands it's worth it.

      I would gladly pay to have my item listed first! If I reach top rated seller this month how long before eBay notifies me?

      I was a top rated seller for six months and never noticed a difference in my sales.

      Yeah there is a "badge" on your item listing but if the item is stuck on page 4 no one sees it.

      The top rated seller status is for months prior, so it will take a few weeks and you should see the badge on your eBay page.
