Making sure buyers receive great service from all our sellers is one of our top priorities. Our seller levels and performance standards help you track your performance and let buyers shop with confidence.
We assess your seller level on the 20th of each month based on your sales history and the quality of service you provide to your buyers.
Based on how you’re rated, you’ll be assigned one of the following seller levels:
We take seller performance standards seriously, so falling below standard may result in your listings being ranked lower in our search results. It can also lead to partial or even complete restriction of your sales activities. While your seller level is below standard, you will also be ineligible for Promoted Listings and will not be able to create new campaigns or edit existing campaigns.
Take a look at your Seller Dashboard to check your current and projected level. If you’re top rated, you’ll find which of your listings are automatically eligible for Top Rated Plus benefits, or which you can change to gain those benefits. If you’re below standard, you’ll find information on how you can improve.
