Don’t worry about it, I’m 4,290 sales in with 341 ratings, that’s 1 rating in every 13 sales, so you’re not exactly far off my rating stats if we imagine that you’ve probably got 2 ratings so far and you’re waiting for your third :)

I think you need at least 3 ratings in one of your items for the stars to show up. My experience tells me that only about 10% of buyers rate items, so that means you might have around 5 ratings, but spread in your different items. When one of your items hits 3 ratings, your profile will display the stars :) So to answer your question: yes, it’s normal.

I got my first rated item after 36 sales on that item (3 ratings), which means only 8% of buyers rated my item.

Around 10% of buyers rated my items, sometimes you can have a few ratings very fast while in other cases it can take days or weeks.

I guess it varies from author to author, because I have only 182 sales, but yet I have 53 ratings which is quite a high percentage…

Problem is that many buyer even don’t know HOW to rate items. Whole rating system is just big pain for both buyers and authors. Your best bet is to always ask for rating when resolving some support issues with your buyers and attach some hint like this (there is also unbranded version of this somewhere in the forum, but I am lazy to search :)).

But just don’t expect any great number of rates even after that.

Buyers are mindless minions that only do what they are told lol, kind of kidding. The best way to get ratings is to ask for it :) Ask them to rate after buying on your sales page, ask them to rate in the documentation, and if you include a demo video in your download, ask them to rate in the beginning of the video. Your ratings will skyrocket :)

EDIT: I just looked and 25% of my buyers are rating the items.
