The Trust has signed up with eBay for Charities. This allows sellers to donate all or part of their final selling price to us.
eBay for Charities manages the donation process, so you don't have to. The donation process is managed by Missionfish, a non-profit organisation. This administration includes claiming Gift Aid on your donation if you have made a Gift Aid declaration, which means that the HM Revenue & Customs (formerly Inland Revenue) will donate an additional 25p for every pound that you give to your chosen charity.
All eBay for Charity listings are integrated into the main eBay site, so buyers can find them easily. Additionally, the programme has several unique features that help your listings stand out. You can choose to donate between 10 and 100% of your proceeds from the sale to the Trust with a minimum donation value of £1.
Buyers can search for eBay for Charity listings through Advanced Search and customised search options. Each eBay for Charity listing has a distinctive blue and yellow ribbon in search results and the title bar. It also has information about your donation amount and the benefiting charity in the item description. Buyers can also search for listings on the dedicated eBay for Charity page.
After your item sells, you collect payment from the buyer as usual. MissionFish will send you an email notification that includes the donation amount, as well as payment instructions. If you have not made your payment by the second Monday after your listing ends, MissionFish will automatically deduct the donation from your credit card. MissionFish receives the donation then re-grants the gift (minus a small deduction to cover costs) to the designated charity on the 30th of the second month after your listing has closed. MissionFish also collects and delivers Gift Aid on your donation, if you have made a Gift Aid declaration, which means that the HM Revenue & Customs (formerly Inland Revenue) will donate an additional 25p for every pound that you give to the Game & WIldlife Conservation Trust.
