Hello everyone,
I was wondering how do you get to be a powerseller?
Also how do you get to be a top rated seller?

THANKS!

Why would you want to be a powerseller? there is very little benefit if any at all anymore and buyers no longer can see that your a powerseller. You basically have to meet a certain number of sales not. sure the requirement but you can check this in the help pages of ebay.com

Although buyers can't see you are a powerseller, you still get quite a few other benefits, such as discounts on your final value fees. The other important benefit is top-rated seller eligibility. Top-rated sellers are visible to buyers and can get up to 20% discount on final value fees, which is nothing to sneeze at!

Here is the full list of benefits:

Power Seller benefits

* Top-rated seller eligibility
* Discounts on Final Value Fees
* Customer Support
* Unpaid Item Protection
* UPS rate discounts
* Health insurance solutions
* Powerful Giving Program
* PowerUp print and email newsletters
* PowerSeller Discussion Boards
* Logo Merchandise
* PowerSeller templates for marketing

Top-Rated Seller benefits

* 20% Discounts on Final Value fees
* Promotion in Best Match search results for Fixed Priced listings
* Exclusive ability to purchase Featured First
* Prominent Top-rated seller badge on View Item pages

@iamdog: Both Alice and Grace have said pretty much everything there is essentially to know about how you can become an eBay powerseller. I was browsing through SaleHoo's blog posts and saw one that you may find interesting:

My favourite thing about being a Power Seller, the instant support. They really do lay the red carpet out in the customer support lounge for Power Sellers, where as the regular sellers wait out in the snow freezing all sorts of things off for anything that even closely resembles service on lost occasions!

Don't discount it, it's still a mile stone worth shooting for because of course if you reach Power Seller, it means that you have a business that is moving along quite nicely.
