You can now donate to the appeal whilst you are selling on Ebay!

We recently discovered a rather nice feature on Ebay UK – all sellers now have the option to give a proportion of their sales total to a charity of their choice. As we are now fully registered ourselves, should you wish to help us via Ebay for Charity, you can choose to do so with just a few clicks.

To get started, simply create a new listing;

Create your listing - Ebay

Then scroll down the page to the payment options area, where you’ll see the charity option;

Raise money for your favourite charity - Ebay

As my son Laurence has discovered, giving a proportion of an Ebay sale to charity is actually very beneficial all round. Should you choose to donate in this way;

  • Your auctions will have a ribbon next to them in the main Ebay search – denoting you are giving a proportion of your sale to charity.
  • Your main product page will also have a big box stating how much you are giving to your chosen charity, as well as the charities mission/web address.
  • You will also get a proportion of your final valuation fee returned to you (depending on the % you are giving to charity).
  • Judging by the current Ebay auctions running in support of the Appeal, you are also likely to get lots more page views, and potentially lots more bids!

This seems like a really positive development, and one which we hope may be of interest to some of our lovely supporters out there. If you would like to know more about donating to the appeal via Ebay, please feel free to contact me. Also, if you have any thoughts about this fundraising avenue, or have any other suggestions besides, please feel free to leave a comment below.

We'd love to hear from you...
