Reverb Preferred Sellers

Sellers Recognized for Outstanding Service

What It Means for Sellers

The Preferred Sellers Program brings a special set of benefits to proven Reverb sellers like yourself to help you grow your business. Once you meet the minimum requirements, it’s totally free to join.

What It Means for Buyers

Preferred Sellers have all established a solid track record on Reverb with consistently high feedback. While every order qualifies for Reverb Protection, buying from a Preferred Seller is an extra assurance that your experience will be extraordinary.

Benefits for Preferred Sellers

The Badge of Honor

Proudly display the Preferred Seller Badge on your profile page, your shop page, and on all of your product listings. The badge encourages buyers to purchase from you – they can even search specifically for products sold by Preferred Sellers!

Lower Reverb Payments Rates

Reverb Payments allows buyers to use debit and credit cards during checkout and enables Reverb to put money in your account faster. Reverb charges 2.5% plus $0.25 for payment processing on Reverb Payments, versus the 2.7% charge for non-Preferred Sellers. You save even more over PayPal fees. Learn more about Reverb Payments.

Seller Protection

Since we are processing credit cards on your behalf with Reverb Payments, Reverb provides an additional layer of fraud protection. We act as your liaison to the credit card companies and go to bat for you in the case of an unauthorized payment claim. Be sure to read the full Reverb Payments terms.
