The Unearthed Secrets Of An eBay PowerSeller
PowerSellers are the crème dela crème of all eBay sellers. To
become a powerseller, you have to meet a set of stringent criteria set by eBay. In fact, the criteria are
nothing more than goals that demonstrate a high level of business acumen and discipline.
The minimum criteria for making it as a powerseller are broadly the following:
• At least 90 days of eBay membership.
• The account should have a good standing financially
• Positive feedback of 98 percent and above for the previous twelve months
• Minimum monthly sales volume of $3000 for the lowest Powerseller tier (Silver) and $150000 for the
Note that Powerseller status comes with numerous added benefits including solutions for health insurance and
unpaid product protection, among others.
The question is what are the secrets that Powersellers will not reveal? We’ll discuss a few of them below.
Whereas there are three main features of a compelling auction – catchy title, a detailed description, and good
photos – they are not the only things that lead to a successful sale. An exceptional buying experience for a
customer is what will bring them back, and if that happens for every buyer you get, you’ll become a Powerseller.
Of course, it all starts with the three basics mentioned above. The listing title is where most potential buyers
first set their eyes, so it’s important that you spend time crafting the title. Instead of using a bold headline,
choose words that are short, concise but descriptive enough.
The photos are very important too but they will not achieve much
without a detailed description. If you simply tell potential customers to ‘see photos’, you’re likely to leave
a lot of money on the table.
Powersellers don’t do that. By the way, writing a good description doesn’t take more than 5 minutes, and you’ll
have potential buyers clinging on your auction all the way to bidding and buying the item.
It’s important to note that no matter how good your products are and how seamlessly you close transactions,
good feedback is largely determined
by your customer service and support. A lot of customers are rude and ill mannered but you don’t have to be like
them. Stay calm and be pleasant even to a rude customer.
If you make a customer feel like they are right even though they are clearly in error, you might receive good
feedback even if they opt out of the transaction. They are sure to remember you next time they come to shop, which
is good for your powerseller prospects.
Powersellers understand that things don’t end the moment a sale completes. There are a million ways you can
benefit from your past customers. But you have to ‘bait’ them first with things like free e-book guides, a bonus,
or any incentive that will make them always buy from you.
And finally, an exceptional buying experience is crowned with fast delivery and good packing. Customers
appreciate a product that is well packed because it shows that it’s not all about money for you. these seemingly
small things are what help turn people into Powersellers.
