What is a PowerSeller?
You've probably seen the muscular PowerSeller icon on eBay and wondered precisely what it
means. Concisely, there are three standards that PowerSellers retain:

  • Consistently meeting sales volume established by eBay (starting with three consecutive
    months).
  • Having a total feedback of 98% or better positive feedback rating.
  • Maintaining sales volume and positive feedback to retain the status.

SECRET: It doesn't take much to become a PowerSeller: in a nutshell you need average sales
of around $1,000 a month and 98% feedback or better and to maintain Detailed Seller
Ratings. Becoming a PowerSeller is easily attainable, yet not everyone is capable of reaching
these standards. There are many reasons for failure, including not having enough inventories
to sell, not having a friendly Internet presence, not pricing properly, and not shipping wisely
(just to mention a few pitfalls). When you read the requirements below, you'll have a better
understanding of how attainable it is for you to become a PowerSeller. It's inspiration to make
it a reality for you.

PowerSellers must meet or exceed minimum guidelinesestablished by eBay for three
consecutive months and every month after to the status. eBay calculates your monthly gross
sales average by adding up your total monthly gross sales for any given month as well as the
two preceding months. Then they divide the figure by three to see whether you qualify for
bronze, silver, gold, platinum or Titanium levels. eBay reserves the right to change the
minimum gross sales requirements, but the 2008 minimum SALES requirements in the U.S.
were as follows:

  • $1,000 for Bronze
  • $3,000 for Silver,
  • $10,000 for Gold,
  • $25,000 for Platinum
  • $150,000 for Titanium

Attaining a bronze level PowerSeller status isn't that difficult to do. Break down the
numbers you'll see you only need around $35 a day in gross sales for 90 days. Of course, if
you don't sell $35 in one day, then you'll have to make it up on another day. But it illustrates
how little you really need to sell.

Tips for profiting on eBay

Strive to make at least a $10 net
profit or 35% gross profit per
client.
That's profit, not sales. (A
few sellers can get away with
making just 20% net profit.)
You'll work yourself to the bone
fulfilling orders of low margin. If
you sell below a $10 profit, be
sure you have a darned good
reason or have a plan of
up-selling or cross-selling with
other products that will ensure
your profits.


Make sure what you sell is easy
to ship.
Skip products that are
too fragile (like glass, pottery,
China) or too awkward or bulky
to ship (like furniture and heavy
equipment). You'll spend too
much time either researching
how to pack the dang thing
properly so it won't break in
transit, or you'll suck all your
time finding a box to fit or a
sourcing a transportation
company. It may not be worth it
to your client either because they
must pay the freight fees. You
simply can't profit on eBay if it's
not easy to sell.


Think beyond eBay and learn
about residual and passive
income opportunities.
Selling on
eBay is no different from being
an employee (in either scenario
you're just trading hours for
dollars). An employee spends 8
hours at work, and an eBay
Seller spends even more hours
to make money. Your key to
true financial wealth is through
residual and passive income
from such things as royalties,
limited partnerships, affiliate
marketing pursuits.

Don't give away free shipping.
eBay has done studies to
uncover that buyers have
remorse on the shipping costs,
and to counter this phenomenon
they try to get sellers to offer
free shipping. Don't fall for
eBay's ploy! If you do the math
you won't recoup your costs and
your feedback score and
Detailed Seller Ratings (DSRs)
won't improve much if any at all.
You'll end up paying higher final
value fees by incorporating the
shipping costs into your price,
and you'll give away all your
discounts and them some for the
price of postage.

Most importantly, eBay allows
buyers to rate you on your
shipping costs -- even if you give
it away for free. Trust us that
even if you give away shipping,
you won't have a perfect five star
rating in this category. Rarely
can you profit on eBay if you
give away free shipping.
