Using eBay

eBay allows the nonprofit beneficiaries using their ABC 15 day temporary license to sell wine online which would extend the Pop-Up live sales.  They have also incorporated another way of purchasing products--Best Offer-- which reflects the way the live silent auction will be run i.e., Name Your Price.  Best Offer allows quantities of the same wine to be offered, and permit bidders to avoid having to return repeatedly to the review the status of bids.  It must be used with Buy it Now which could be set at suggested retail or slightly below.

The History of eBay Giving Works

Integrated into eBay's regular buying and selling platform, eBay Giving Works makes it easy for people to support important causes, both in the U.S. and abroad. It enables sellers to donate a portion of their sales and buyers to shop while supporting their favorite charities — all the while giving nonprofits an opportunity to engage new supporters.

PayPal Giving Fund, eBay's nonprofit partner

  • Paypal Giving Fund + eBay Logo

At eBay, we think it's a whole lot easier to do good in the world when you have someone to help you out. We've teamed up with PayPal Giving Fund, to certify nonprofits for participation in eBay Giving Works and process the millions of dollars in donations given every year through the program.

Any nonprofit that wishes to be part of eBay Giving Works is screened by PayPal Giving Fund. The screening process includes:

  • Reviewing each nonprofit's mission statement to confirm that they do not promote hate, violence or illegal activity
  • Checking all nonprofits against an international database to confirm they are not connected to any terrorist groups
  • Verifying that organizations who apply are, and remain, in good standing with the IRS (any nonprofits that lose their tax-deductible status are removed from the eBay Giving Works program).

Thanks to operating support from PayPal, 100% of every donation processed by PayPal Giving Fund reaches the donor's chosen nonprofit organization. And because PayPal Giving Fund is a nonprofit itself, 100% of your donation amount is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
