eBay Canada announced changes to its PowerSeller program last week that give sellers two ways of qualifying for the highest tier of final value fee discounts.

Sellers on eBay.ca will now qualify for PowerSeller status based on their transactions with all eBayers, not just those on eBay U.S., as they had before the policy change. PowerSellers on the site will also receive the largest final value fee discount whether they created their listings on eBay.com or eBay.ca, notes eBay Canada's Russ Patterson in this General Announcements post. This change will be retroactive, and sellers will receive applicable discounts for listings sold from April 16 onward.

To qualify for the discount, PowerSellers must have a registration address in Canada and meet Top-rated seller requirements. Sellers can check their dashboards to see if they will receive the discounts.

"The seller performance section of your dashboard will show you the discount you qualified for based on the U.S. program and the Discount section will reflect the discount you qualified for based on the Canadian program," Patterson says.
