Top Rated seller status is evaluated on the 20th of each month. For all criteria except tracking, the evaluation is based on either the previous three months or 12 months of selling, depending on how much you sell. For the new tracking requirement, after September 20, we will look back at the previous three calendar months of transactions to determine your tracking upload rate.
When you ship by First Class Mail, you pay extra for Delivery Confirmation. Depending on the price of your item, it may make more sense to ship by First Class Parcel which includes free Delivery Confirmation.
When you combine shipping, upload tracking to each transaction in that order—simply upload the same tracking number for each item. Just be sure to complete your upload within your stated handling time.
The following items are not required to upload tracking to meet the Top Rated seller tracking requirement:
- Unpaid items and cancelled transactions
- Transactions marked as offering freight shipping
- When a buyer selects local pick-up
- Classified Ads
- Motor Vehicles
- Real Estate
