eBay for Charity fee credits

eBay for Charity fee credits

If your eBay for Charity item sells, you're eligible for an eBay fee credit. We'll credit a portion of your basic selling fees (insertion and final value fees) back to you according to the level of your donation.

For example, if you donate 50% of your item's sale price to charity, you'll receive a 50% credit on your basic selling fees. For charities selling items, we'll credit back 100% of your basic selling fees.

The fee credit will appear automatically on your first eBay invoice after the item sells.

Please note:
  • This credit doesn't apply to fees for any optional features, such as listing upgrades or setting a reserve price, or to PayPal fees.

  • If your item doesn't sell, you won't get a fee credit on the insertion fee. However, you may be able to relist the item for free.

  • The item must be listed using the eBay for Charity option on the listing (Sell Your Item) form.

  • Fee credits must be at least £0.01 to be processed.

  • eBay for Charity listings are only available on eBay.co.uk (not eBay.ie).

  • Listings must comply with our policy on charity listings.

After your item has sold

Once the buyer pays, your donations will be collected by PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538) that delivers 100% of your donation to your chosen charity. PayPal Giving Fund will also collect Gift Aid and pass it on to your chosen charity if you've made a Gift Aid declaration.

How much does your charity receive?

PayPal Giving Fund delivers 100% of your donation to the charity of your choice, plus any applicable Gift Aid. If you have made a Gift Aid declaration, your chosen charity receives an additional 25% of any donation made.

If you sell for charity on eBay, you'll receive a percentage credit on the basic insertion and final value fees. Your credit will be equal to the percentage you've chosen to donate to charity. Charities that sell on eBay receive full refunds on the basic insertion and final value fees.
