potential i have now???

well now you do a few things:

1. see if you can send a link with the xss to a user, while he is
logged in, and have him click it. if so, steal his session.

failing that,
2. send the link with the xss to somebody and forge the sites content
with your own, thereby tricking them into paying information to the
wrong account, or calling the wrong phone number, etc.

failing that,
3. nothing.

xss is only good if you can trick someone into trusting something. if
they don't trust it to begin with, it's useless.
