100% of proceeds from selling an item go to the Charity
PayPal Giving Fund is a registered non-profit that connects donors, businesses & charities in order to help charities raise new funds. eBay for Charity works directly with the PayPal Giving Fund to enable sellers to donate a portion of their sales and buyers to shop while supporting their favorite charity. It’s a win-win-win opportunity!
Plus, participation in PayPal Giving Fund is free, and they provide donation and donor reports, issue tax receipts, aggregate donations for monthly electronic distribution, and handle legal registration requirements. Learn more about PayPal Giving Fund.
Try searching for your charity using our Find a Charity tool. If you don’t find your charity in the list, make sure that your Charity is already a PayPal Confirmed Charity and then follow the steps to enrol in the PayPal Giving Fund.
You may have had your charity status confirmed but you also need to enrol in the PayPal Giving Fund. After you enrol in the PayPal Giving Fund it may take 1-2 days to appear in the list of charities on eBay.
You will need to contact the administrator for the charity’s PayPal account and request that they add you to their Direct Sellers list by logging into the Direct Selling for Charity page.
It’s easy! When you are listing an item, you can turn on the option to “Donate a portion to charity”. You will be asked to select a charity and the percentage you want to donate. To make it even easier, you can first create a list of your favorite charities using our Find a Charity tool then tapping the heart icon to add it to your Favorites list.
When you donate a portion of your sales to charity, you will get listing fee credits equal to the percent you are donating. For example, if you donate 20% to charity, you will get a 20% reduction in listing and final value fees. Learn more about listing fee credits.
