Selling items on eBay is a great way to help raise funds for charity. However, to ensure sellers and their nominated charities are protected, we have rules that must be followed when listing items for sale that benefit charitable organisations.
What is the policy?
Sellers can use eBay for Charity when:
- The eBay for Charity Seller Terms and Conditions - opens in new window or tab are accepted and the account is kept in good standing
- It is agreed that at least 10% of the final sale price (or 1% for vehicles sold on eBay Motors) is donated to a PayPal Giving Fund vetted organization in the nonprofit directory - opens in new window or tab if the item sells, with a minimum donation of $1
- Payment is accepted by PayPal, credit card, or debit card
- Listings are not in the Real Estate categories
Activity that doesn't follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or canceling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.
Visit Seller Help - opens in new window or tab to find details of any policy issues with your account or listings, and get the information you need to quickly resolve them.
