Let me explain you this way. Imagine you have an apparel store on a busy running street opens for everyone. You know your regular customers very well. You have a limited stock and limited staff in your store. Two customers arrive at the same time. One is a millionaire buys a lot from you whenever he visits. The other customer is very demanding and wastes your time. Who would you give priority to? Obviously to the one who takes away your shelf, right. But what if you do not know your customers? You give attention to both and treat the same way. Similarly, eBay does not want their sellers to know about the power buyers that is a bitter truth. There is no such program where you can identify a power buyer from eBay. Apparently, there has been always a way around to find a solution. But you might be wondering why you need power buyers. How will they help you? If you look deeper, you will realize they are your goldmine.

People trust sellers whose reputation is good on eBay and have greater feedback score. They will purchase things blindly without giving a second thought. Those sellers make a good profit and known as top sellers. There are many sellers still struggling to find a sell. Power buyers can be your savior, trust me.
