eBay for Charity is the perfect way to fund raise without even leaving your own home. So, if you’re thinking of selling goods on eBay, consider donating a percentage of the proceeds to Colostomy UK.
It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3!
1. Once you’re ready to list your item, use the ‘Advanced Sell’ form. If you’re stuck, you can get some tips on how to list.
2. As you’re filling out the details, look out for the charity box just below where you set your price. Select ‘Colostomy Association Ltd’ and the percentage of your final selling price that you’d like to donate. Sellers can choose to donate between 10% and 100% of their final sale price to our charity.
3. Three weeks after your item sells, PayPal Giving Fund (eBay’s partner charity) will automatically collect the donation from you.
You can also manage your donations through the ‘My Donations’ section of ‘My eBay’, under the ‘My Account’ tab. Any fee credits will appear on your next invoice. For more information please visit the ebay charity pages.
Your listing will appear with a special charity blue and yellow ribbon beside it together with Colostomy UK’s logo and aims. When your item sells, your donation plus Gift Aid and an eBay fee donation will be paid directly into our bank account.
Once you have added your goods for auction, your details are added to the list of current sellers raising money for Colostomy UK. You can view these, and start shopping to support our cause here!
