What does the star next to my Feedback Score mean?

Feedback stars are awarded to eBay members for achieving 10 or more Feedback ratings. Find out more about how you earn Feedback ratings.

In most cases, members receive:

  • +1 point to your Feedback Score for each positive comment and rating left for you.

  • No points for a neutral comment and rating left for you.

  • -1 point to your Feedback Score for each negative comment and rating left for you.

Here's what the different stars mean:
Yellow star () = 10 to 49 ratings
Blue star () = 50 to 99 ratings
Turquoise star () = 100 to 499 ratings
Purple star () = 500 to 999 ratings
Red star () = 1,000 to 4,999 ratings
Green star () = 5,000 to 9,999 ratings
Yellow shooting star () = 10,000 to 24,999 ratings
Turquoise shooting star () = 25,000 to 49,999 ratings
Purple shooting star () = 50,000 to 99,999 ratings
Red shooting star () = 100,000 to 499,999 ratings
Green shooting star (green shooting star) = 500,000 to 999,999 ratings
Silver shooting star (silver shooting star) = 1,000,000 ratings or more

Tip: In most cases, a high Feedback Score is a good sign, but you should always check a member's Feedback Profile to read comments and look for negative remarks.
