If you are having a clear out and have any unwanted items, they can now be sold on eBay to help raise funds for the Myotubular Trust.
Earn a bit. Give a bit…
When you’re selling, the real beauty of eBay for Charity is that there’s something for everyone – yourself included. You decide exactly what percentage of your final selling price you’d like to donate to Myotubular Trust and what percentage you’d like for yourself. You can donate anything from 10-100% of the final selling price with a minimum donation of £1 per item.
Seen by everyone
eBay for Charity listings are the same as any other eBay listing, except for the blue and yellow eBay for Charity ribbon in search results and your chosen charity’s mission statement and logo in your listing. This means your listing can be seen by everyone who searches through eBay.co.uk. It’ll also get extra visibility through the eBay for Charity pages.
It’s the perfect way to make a difference – while doing what you do every day on eBay, whether you’re a fishing enthusiast selling angling gear or a big business trading electronics.
Don’t forget Gift Aid
Gift Aid is one of the easiest ways to make your donation tax effective. Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the charity will receive an extra 25p from the government.
Simply log into PayPal Gift Aid to make your declaration. When your charity item sells, provided you pay more in UK income or capital gains tax than you’re asking charities to claim back in each tax year, the PayPal Giving Fund will collect the Gift Aid from the government and pass it on to your chosen charity.
