How charities can make the most of the post-Xmas clearout

January is traditionally time for a good clearout: to say goodbye to the remaining rolls of wrapping paper and find space to accommodate new Christmas gifts.

But what’s the best way of making room? Many will choose to donate their items to charity, or sell them on eBay.

Now there’s a way of combining the two and getting the best of both worlds, as charities can ask their supporters to list their unwanted items for sale with eBay for Charity.

Supporters simply place their items for sale, as they would in a regular eBay auction, then donate a percentage, from 10 per cent to 100 per cent, to a charity of their choice.

It gets better, as the supporter will receive a listing fee reduction in line with the percentage they donate, so if they choose to donate 20 per cent from their sale to charity, they’ll get a 20 per cent reduction in the eBay standard listing fee. Everyone wins.
