Partly....as a Bronze seller you have met one of the minimum requirements for top rated seller ($1000/yr and 100 transaction) which can bring more discounts.

 

The biggest thing is shipping discounts. The chart below says the USPS savings program is for powersellers, but it is actually for Top Rated sellers.

 

PowerSeller benefits

PowerSellers enjoy special benefits, including:

As a PowerSeller, you also have the opportunity to qualify for Top-rated seller status, which recognizes sellers who have a proven track record of excellent customer service and sales.

 

This chart didn't mention Health Insurance opportunities either...

Health insurance opportunities?

Indeed. They started offering a health plan to power sellers and their employees maybe a year ago. Haven't researched it too much, but that is in my five year plan...or once I pay off these damn student loans.

Hey dudes.
Up and down week. Avoided a return through a tactful and polite response.
Only to find a message today that a priority package to San Fran that never got delivered. Difference is: tracking says it wasn't. 11 days later, priority package says location was in NJ.

So what do I do? Is there a # I can call? Obv. I will look on the USPS website, but would appreciate any similar experience.

(for ref, track # is 9405509699937142965884)

Did you send it to me by accident lol8[1].gif Only advise is get on the phone with USPS. Have had packages get miss-shipped but they usually end up where the label says eventually.

Looks like ebay just did a BIG upgrade to the listing templates (not yours or mine, but the ebay template itself). Biggest thing I see is that when you watch and item, it tells you how many people are watching!! decisions.gif This is going to be good for sellers (and ebay) $$$$

 

 

Also, there is a button on the bottom that says "View all revisions" which is interesting.

Time to start shill watching. Like shill bidding, but less unscrupulous teacha.gif

Most of my items don't get a ton of watchers, so I'm not sure it helps (unless I'm selling robert graham, true religion, etc.)

Hmm, where do you see other watchers? Not showing up for me.

Im missing this. You mean when you watch an item you want to buy, you see how many others are watching it too?

apparently, it doesnt need to be an item you are watching, because there is not a snowball's chance in hell i would ever consider owning this piece of jewelry, even for 1/1000th of current price

Seems like they are still in testing mode as the old format is back. They did the same thing with the saved search emails last week. Went to a stupid new format for a few days then switched back. The old (current) email format is MUCH better IMO, so much so that I placed a call to ebay to find out if I had the option to switch it back somehow.

usually they keep legacy modes available, so I would imagine so, very little reason not to

Yeah, that was horrible. The worst was that they cut off titles so half the time I couldn't tell the sizes and had to go to the website to find out what was worth looking at.

Just got my first ever ebay case opened against me today. Buyer had sent message with this as the entire text "What if the pants don't fit?".

I responded "Resell them".

Buyer opens case stating that the pants are not the size represented in the auction and that I refused to take them back.

Dumb shit.
1. He didn't ask me to take them back.
2. He didn't tell me that the pants are not the size advertised. I seriously doubt that these made in the US BB Saxxon pants are not W32 as advertised.

I think that feature, or something very similar, has been there quite awhile.

I'm thinking you've post measurements, right?
