Top Seller programme

How to qualify

To qualify, you must:

  1. be 'in trade'
  2. have had at least 60 sold items, or have made at least $10,000 in sales over the past six weeks
  3. have a 98% or higher positive feedback rating
  4. have a sell-through rate of at least 10% over the past six weeks. Your sell-through rate is rounded to the nearest whole number.

Note: only Marketplace listings count towards your Top Seller qualification criteria. 'Car parts & accessories' and 'Business, Farming & industry' are considered Marketplace categories.

Top Seller status is re-checked every six weeks. Top Seller status can't be put on hold.
