Celebrity eBay Sellers Reach Top Rated Status Too Late
I thought you might get a kick out of this. JayAndMarie stopped selling on eBay in June 2014. Today we received notification (legitimate!) from eBay announcing we were finally "Top Rated Sellers", which is something we were never able to achieve in our many years of selling.
"Congratulations! You've achieved Top Rated Seller status, meeting eBay's US seller performance standards. To make buyers aware of your commitment to customer service, eBay will identify you as a Top Rated Seller. You are also now eligible to opt-in to eBay's new managed returns process.
Having Top Rated status also makes you eligible for these additional benefits on any of your listings that offer a 1-day handling time and 14-day or longer return policy with money back option:
20% discount on final value fees
Increased search standing when you follow our listing best practices and consistently deliver great service
A prominent Top Rated Plus seal
To make sure you maintain your eBay Top Rated status, check your Seller Dashboard regularly. Remember, in addition to satisfying other evaluation criteria, to maintain your Top Rated status, you will need to continue to upload tracking within your stated handling time on 90% or more of US transactions. Once you've maintained Top Rated Seller status for three consecutive months, your status may be eligible for a grace period - time to get back on track without losing your discounts or benefits - if you fall below the sales or tracking upload requirements.
Again, congratulations and thank you for your hard work as one of eBay's best sellers."
