Don't know how everything links together? Every eBay for Charity item sold makes a difference, as a percentage of the proceeds will go to charity. Here's how it all works:
|Anyone selling on eBay can list an eBay for Charity item and donate a percentage to charity
|Some eBay for Charity items are sold directly by charities themselves.
|You can support charities easily while shopping on eBay.
|The item sells. The seller receives payment from the buyer (and a matching % fee credit from eBay.)
|The charity sets up an eBay seller's account and adds their eBay ID as a "Direct Seller" in their PayPal Giving Fund account, linking the two.
|Look for the eBay for charity ribbon in search result, which shows the items that benefit good causes.
|PayPal Giving Fund collects the donation from the seller. The payment method on file with eBay is used unless the seller has chosen otherwise.
|The charity lists an item, choosing itself as the benefiting charity and 100% donation level.
|Visit and bookmark our home page and shopping page to view all the items that benefit charities.
|If the seller ticked the Gift Aid box, PayPal Giving Fund claims Gift Aid for the charity.
|The item sells, and the charity receives payment from the buyer and a fee credit from eBay.
When making a purchases, add a small donation to the charity you see in eBay checkout.
|After a short period to ensure all has gone through successfully, 100% of the donation and Gift Aid is transferred to the chosen charity.
|The charity keeps the money to spend on furthering its work.
|Choose which charities you see in eBay checkout on the “My Favorite Charities” page in your Donation Account.
