Is there a way to participate in their beta? I've tried the search function and couldn't find the correct answer.

I'd like an answer to this too. I've googled it extensively, but haven't figured out a way to get in on the deal...

its by invitation only. i believe if youre a member since before 2005 they give you an invitation. thats all i know.

when they sent me the invitation, i didnt know what it was so its a good thing i said yes! now im happy that i get some money back everytime i buy from ebay. ive been buying stuff from adorama so its cool!

I started using ebay bucks a few weeks ago and I am getting 2%. Now there is a special offer with some ebay sellers and it goes up to 10%. The bad news is that their prices are so high that not even with the cashback and ebay bucks is worth it.
I guess we will have to keep our eyes open for a good deal.

Doesn't have a strong correlation to age of ebay account, otherwise I would likely have an invite due to my extremely old account.

Yeah, I've been an ebay member since 1997, but I haven't been invited.

I really have not sold much there lately, but have had a few hundred transactions as a buyer in the last couple years. Very glad I was invited to join.

As others have said, the age of the account does not matter. I open my account for about three months and spent about 10K during that time. I was invited after that ;-)a

I didn't know it was beta! I've been in it for a while.

In 16 days I'll earn my next certificate, $5.38
