eBay allows you to list an item and donate a percentage of the money you raise to charity. Take a look at our top tips for selling items on eBay and raising vital funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Top tips for selling items on eBay.
1. Find items
Go to eBay and search for similar items to those you wish to sell. This can help you choose a starting price and the right categories for your items.
2. Take photos
Take at least one good photo of your item – this will increase interest in your listing. Be sure to take your pictures in good lighting.
Work out the cost of postage for sending your item - you’ll need to add this to your listing.
4. Create an account
Create your seller account on eBay.
5. List your items
List your items using the ‘Advanced Sell’ form. Look out for the ‘charity’ box (just below 'setting your price'). Select ‘Cystic Fibrosis Trust’ and choose the percentage you would like to donate to us.
6. Send your items
When your item is bought by someone, complete your transaction with the winning bidder. Package your item up safely and pop it in the post.
Three weeks after your item sells, PayPal Giving Fund (eBay’s partner charity) will automatically collect the donation from your PayPal account.
8. Save 50% on fees
Every time you list an item for charity, you’ll get a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate. So if you donate 50% of your selling price to a charity, eBay will waive 50% of your fees.
