The New Year is the time for resolutions, both personal and business-related. If you need ideas for improving your business in 2015, here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Make sure last year is wrapped up tight. Stay on top of your 2014 tax prep by taking advantage of the IRS Small Business and Self-Employed Tax Center. And, if you need help getting your tax info organized, sign up for a FREE Outright account. Outright automatically organizes all of your eBay, PayPal, bank and credit card transactions in one place.
  • Resolve to pay less in fees this year. Find out if an eBay Stores subscription can help you save money, or—if you’re already a subscriber—make sure you have the right subscription level. Use the handy Fee Illustrator to find out in a matter of seconds the right subscription package based on your projected 2015 activity.
  • Boost—or maintain—your status. Top Rated Seller status, that is. Learn how big savings and additional sales could be waiting for you at the Top Rated Seller Resource Center. You’ll get tips on reducing your handling time, uploading tracking info, offering a returns policy that will inspire buyer confidence, and more.

Already a Top Rated Seller? Make sure the Top Rated Plus seal appears on your listings. The Top Rated Plus seal appears on each listing that offers a 1-day handling time and a 14-day or longer money-back returns policy, coming from a Top Rated Seller. Offering these services can get you more sales and a 20% discount on final value fees for those listings. Learn more.
