Just call ebay and explain to them that you have been relocated temporarily on a 6 month job contract and need them to send it to your temporary address.

EB does not mail certificate to people. Email only. Paperless saves $.

Did they change that? I have a paper copy of my first ever powerseller certificate that was mailed to me.

Yeah, I received one a few years ago on my real eBay account that was blacklisted by eBay!

Unfortunately I can't post a pic of it cos it's at home and I'm out of town at the moment. :(

No, they used to send out letters to Powersellers to say congratulations, which included a certificate with your eBay Seller ID. According to some people they don't do that anymore. I don't know for sure, myself. My information is a couple years out of date.

I remember getting the dumb certificate mailed in a folder along with a bumper sticker and a business card holder that had Powerseller engraved on it. It also included stats from my auctions. I am pretty sure I would the stats thing mailed to me every so many months that outlined what I sold, how much I sold, and what was projected I would sell. This was several years ago, and I never bothered with the whole Powerseller thing since.

If you have a good thing going, there is no reason to throw a wrench in the gears just to save 10 percent on eBay fees. If you've read the responses, the point is, we don't know. The mail will probably be returned to eBay, and get put in a bin and eventually shredded.

If you don't want the hassle, and you also want to have a guarantee of no hassle, DON'T ACCEPT THE REQUEST.

If you haven't done so, rent a PO Box or a UPS store address for your ebay account name where you CAN get mail and add it to your ebay and paypal information. Without an address to accept mail/returns, any account is a ticking timebomb.

If they call you, it's usually to investigate. Phone calls from this company never involve good news.
