PowerSeller fee discounts
spacer

PowerSellers in the United States or Canada receive Final Value Fees discounts based on their detailed seller ratings (DSRs) for the last 30 days.

PowerSeller fee discounts are our way of recognizing and rewarding sellers who consistently provide excellent customer service on eBay. Because detailed seller ratings (DSRs) enable buyers to rate specific aspects of their transactions - item as described, communication, shipping time, and shipping and handling charges - these ratings provide the best measure of customer satisfaction and the best way for eBay to identify good sellers. Your DSRs also give you a complete picture of how customers rate your performance and what you can do to improve. Learn more about detailed seller ratings (DSRs) and best practices for maintaining high DSRs.

PowerSellers can now access the PowerSeller fee discount section of the Seller Dashboard where they can check if they qualify for the FVF discounts based on the last 30 days of DSRs.

Coming in October 2009: 20% Final Value Fee discounts for Top-rated sellers. For more information, visit http://pages.ebay.com/bh/en-us/sell/July2009Update/Details. Coming in April 2010: new Final Value Fee discounts for PowerSellers. For more information, visit http://pages.ebay.com/bh/en-us/sell/July2009Update/Details.

Requirements to qualify

You qualify for the PowerSeller fee discounts if you:

  • Are a member of the United States or Canadian PowerSeller program, and
  • Have maintained excellent detailed seller ratings (DSRs) over the last 30 days in all four areas - item description, communication, shipping time, and shipping and handling charges. All four of your DSRs must be equal to or greater than than 4.6, 4.8 or 4.9 for increasingly deeper discounts.
If you are a PowerSeller, check the PowerSeller fee discount section of the Seller Dashboard to see if you qualify based on your last 30 days of DSRs.

How it works
spacer

  • If you are a PowerSeller and all four of your detailed seller ratings (DSRs) for the past 30 day period are 4.6 or higher, you qualify for a 5% discount on Final Value Fees
  • If you are a PowerSeller and all four of your detailed seller ratings (DSRs) for the past 30 day period are 4.8 or higher, you qualify for a 15% discount on Final Value Fees
  • If you are a PowerSeller and all four of your detailed seller ratings (DSRs) for the past 30 day period are 4.9 or higher, you qualify for a 20% discount on Final Value Fees (the 20% discount will begin to show on your July, 2008 invoice).
If you sell exclusively in the Motors Vehicles categories:
  • The 30-day detailed seller rating (DSR) requirement applies to item description and communication ratings only. Transactions in motor vehicle categories are not rated on shipping time and shipping and handling charges since vehicle shipping is typically arranged by the buyer.
  • PowerSeller fee discounts apply to Successful Listing Fees for your sales in Motors Vehicles categories.
