I’ve recently been using EBay For Charity for the first time to sell some items for a small new charitable company that desperately needs the funds. It’s been a bit of a learning curve – although the help pages for a seller are reasonably good there were immediately questions raised about the process which were not easily answered on the site, particularly when you’re sending 100% of the sale price to the charity.
The main ones were:
- Seller’s PayPal fees – is the sale value sent to the charity net of the fees that PayPal have charged me?
- Postage – better to make it inclusive, or add it as extra?
I hope to be able to answer those questions definitively, in the near future.
