You have certain quotas to reach by year end to keep TRS designation I am sure.

Its a monthly review. You could make the TRS program one month, miss it the next by .1% and then be back the next month.

TRS is no longer based on sales volume but you will need to meet the yearly requirements of 100 transactions and $3k sales in the past year, and low DSRs (1s and 2s) on no more than 0.50% of all transactions with U.S. buyers on each of their 4 DSRs.

Here are the current requirements.

Here are the current requirements.
* eBay Top-rated sellers will earn top rewards: 20% fee discounts, exclusive promotion in search results for Fixed Price listings, exclusive ability to purchase Featured First, and a prominent Top-rated seller badge on their item pages.

* PowerSellers of all levels, from Bronze to Titanium, can qualify as eBay Top-rated sellers if they have at least 100 transactions and $3,000 sales in the past year, and low DSRs (1s and 2s) on no more than 0.50% of all transactions with U.S. buyers on each of their 4 DSRs.

* To ensure that lower-volume sellers (fewer than 400 annual transactions) can be included as Top-rated sellers, two instances of 1s or 2s on each of the four DSRs will be allowed before the 0.50% requirement is applied.

* The time period over which a seller's low DSRs are evaluated will depend on sales volume: For sellers with 400 or more transactions over the past 3 months, it's 3 calendar months. For all other sellers, it's 12 calendar months.

* Until April 2010, the current PowerSeller discount structure based on average 30-day DSRs will also continue: 20% for 4.9; 15% for 4.8; and 5% for 4.6. PowerSellers will continue to get those discounts through April 2010 as long as they continue to meet the 30-day DSR requirements. This gives PowerSellers eight full months to keep those discounts while they evaluate and adjust their business practices to meet the new requirements.

About 6 months. I will have the same DSR and ratings my worries is that it says within 12 months you have to have a minimum of 100 transactions. I will not meet the 100 minimum transactions if I dont sell anything.

Anyone have experience with this problem before?

One of my TS accounts is not used much...whenever I start to reach the threshold, I sell items to generate the minimums. This is an easy problem to solve if you keep a pulse on what's selling well. Use a combo of higher ticket items and many lower priced items to meet the minimums.
