A New Way for Donors to Raise Funds for your Organisation

The eBay community consists of millions of users who regularly buy and sell. One of the best-kept secrets is that sellers can donate up to 100% of their proceeds to a charity of their choice.

eBay sellers and your supporters can now sell items on the eBay platform and donate 10-100% of the purchase price to benefit your organisation. We call this Community Selling, and it’s something that tens of thousands of eBay sellers do every year, with nearly 20 million charitable listings created on eBay last year. 

Enrol now and you can start inviting your supporters to sell for your charity!

1. Ask your donors to sell for you

A “good” reason to sell: Sellers can be highly motivated to sell items they consider to be too valuable for a charity shop; some sellers are overjoyed knowing they can clean out their home and do some good for an organisation they care about.

Listings sell faster: When listings offer 10% to your organisation, buyers ascribe more trust to the seller and will be more likely to buy an item benefitting charity over one that does not.

Automatic donations: PayPal Giving Fund, our partner charity, automatically collects your donation, or sends you an invoice, after your item sells.

Seller fee credits: eBay credits the seller to the extent they donate (e.g. when they donate 20% to your organization, eBay credits 20% of the final value fees to the seller).

Tax deductible: We ensure all donations are itemised and reported to the seller to be used as tax deductions as allowed by law. PayPal Giving Fund can also add Gift Aid to donations from individuals - just visit PayPal Gift Aid

Brand exposure: eBay highlights your brand on the listing page for all items that benefit your organisation.

Recurring donation streams: Sellers who sell and donate to charity feel great about their experience and are more likely to do it again. This translates to more unrestricted donations for your organisation.

A positive environmental impact: By encouraging your donors to sell their unwanted goods on eBay, you’re actually helping to keep these items out of landfills and helping eBay further our goal for a more sustainable form of commerce.
