There are a number of ways you can raise money for Friendship Works through eBay:

Donate while you sell:

  • Earn fee credits. Every time you list an item for charity, you will receive a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate. If you donate 50% of your selling price to a charity, eBay will waive 50% of your fees.
  • Donate between 10%-100% to Friendship Works whenever you sell an item (subject to a minimum £1 donation per listing).
  • Select Family Action as your favourite charity to see every time you sell or shop on eBay. All you need to do is select Family Action on the ‘My Favourite Charities’ page in your eBay donation account.

As a seller, you can add an eBay ribbon to show that some or all of what you will sell will go to charity.
