eBay Diamond Sellers Get Reseller Badge

New badge separates authorized from non-authorized.

eBay continues to morph and upgrade its selling policies. One of several changes eBay is implementing this year includes the “Authorized Reseller” badge for Diamond Sellers.

The badge is displayed above the seller’s name in product page search results—which are now available for certain categories—and in item view pages. According to eBay, the badge is an indication that the resellers are trained by the manufacturer about the product, and there are typically full manufacturer warranties included.

The “Authorized Reseller” badge is displayed as a silver checkmark within a gold-bar design, and underneath are the words “Manufacturer’s Authorized Seller.”
