First, the bottom line: eBay prides itself on its egalitarian community, but does have its own elite class: PowerSellers. Being designated a PowerSeller generally means that your business has a high level of sales and your customers have had good experiences with you. Benefits of the designation include special treatment by eBay and the fact that future buyers are more likely to trust your business. For your eBay business to be designated a PowerSeller, average sales must reach at least $1,000 per month and you must meet other performance standards. Once you hit these markers, you’ll likely get an invitation from eBay to join the elite.
