eBay's "powerless seller program" is the last step on the way to being banned on eBay. Avoid it all costs!
Don't accept it or join it. It has ruined millions of sellers on eBay.

eBay has been under indictment for a couple of years now for violations of the RICO act. The law they use against the mafia.

Anytime you agree to participate in greedbay's sellers programs and clubs, you are really flying straight into their radar like a moth to a flame.

Just keep your head low and keep selling. Or you will regret it.

I agree, it's been said time and time again in this forum, becoming a Powerseller is more a liability then asset.

It depends, if you are selling VERO items I found that being a powerseller is good. If you are selling legit just ignore it.

HI-Just my Personal Experience: As a PS- you get more "Chances" when you get hits for listings- i.e. as a Plat PS- I was able to take 7-8 hits/month, whereas on a new acct/ or 3-6 month acct- 1 or 2, then you're gone.. SO, that in itself was Valuable for me..
BUT... on the other hand- YES, they also got you for stupid stuff--like Encouraging, (selling an empty box Supposedly Encourages someone else to place a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ watch in it)- When I transferred the empty Boxes to a NON-PS acct, they got listed and never taken down... So, I guess it depends on your products/Value

Pros:
  1. Slightly more communication opportunities with eBay.
  2. Having Powerseller Logo gives you more trust to buyers. This could mean more sales.
  3. Depending on your Powerseller level it takes more to suspend you. You're giving SLIGHTLY more trust by T&S.

Cons:
  1. eBay will suspend and limit a Powerseller account just the same as a Non-Powerseller.
  2. Using a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ address could hurt you when eBay tries to send you information about your Powerseller status.
  3. There is risk of suspension but it is slight.
  4. No protection from T&S.
  5. Nothing really changes.

Final Answer:
There is absolutely no advantage to Powerseller status. It may increase sales slightly, but is it worth it? The only thing that matters is having the right products at the right price. Plus you will be held to higher standards than most. Really - YOU DONT NEED IT.
