      What is the TRS badge - Top Rated Seller Badges/Ribbons

      Ebay says having TRS badges on a page helps the seller - what is a TRS badge?

      Do you have to pay for a badge?

      TRS badges stand for "Top-Rated Seller" on eBay. The TRS badge is earned the same way you earn the PowerSeller position. Sellers have to be PowerSellers to reach top rated status.

      The TRS badge is one of the benefits of reaching the milestone on eBay. The badge is not free though as you have to pay to participate in the PowerSeller side of eBay.

      Buyers see the TRS badge on item pages and item listings under the "best match" category.

      A trs badge is an icon representing the top sellers on eBay. The badge is supposed to tell buyers that they should buy from you since you are top rated.

      So the TRS badge takes the place of the powerseller ribbon?

      Yes, the top rated seller badge replaces the PowerSeller badge/ribbon.

      The top rated seller (TRS) badge is displayed in the upper right corner of an item page on eBay. The badge represents sellers who have consistent DSRs.

      Do sellers that have TRS badges, sell more than PowerSellers?

      There are varied success stories with TRS because it can be so hard to keep since itís so dependent on DSRs. Just having one mean customer leave a 1 rating can put you in jeopardy.

      Having a TRS badge shows that buyers are less likely to be ripped off if they use that seller (i.e. me) so I think it is very helpful to distinguish you from the eBay masses.

      Like everything else with eBay there are some problems with the top rated seller program, however, displaying the TRS badge can only help matters.

      I am a top rated seller on eBay but am still diversified with my own site and a few others. Diversifying your selling avenues is the best way to sell more.
