    Recently got Top Rated Badge

    So today after school I logged onto eBay to check on my listing, and I notice that I have acquired the top-rated badge.

    This motivated me to continue to sell and post more stuff on eBay.

    Its good to have the badge kind a like positive feed back. The next best thing to positive feed back is no feed back. 73, Mike

    Where do you see the badges at?

    Also, is there any trick to getting people to bother leaving feedback? Maybe 1 out of every 4 items I sell, someone leaves me feedback. I always give positive feedback as soon as my items are delivered to their door. No reciprocation, though.

    Any tricks to get more feedback participation?

    The bay has be more and more like the river (Amazon). And people have been treating it so, leaving less and less feedback.
    eBay had become less and less people oriented and more product oriented.

    I had the top rated badge for a while. I could not keep up with the selling quota that it demands.

    Not a top-rated seller badge, but I just got notification that my listing limits were bumped from 80 items/$9000 up to 240/27000.

    I wish I could list that much!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (I think)

    It was at a time when I was listing and selling Pokemon cards. I was averaging around 50 listings every 2 weeks
