Sell it yourself

Decluttering? Sell online and if you can, donate the money to us.

 

Our eBay store is one of our most successful retail fundraisers. But with a lack of donations and social distancing requirements, we’re facing a loss in income.

You could help us by directly listing your preloved items on eBay and donating your proceeds, or a contribution, to support our care.

How to get started:

  • Visit ebayforcharity.org and use the Charity Search to select Willen Hospice Ventures Ltd as your charity. Then look for ‘Donate a portion to charity’ when you list your item. Add Willen and pick your donation percentage before finalising your listing.
  • Sell & Ship to your customer as usual. No additional steps or paperwork are required.
  • Receive a Donation Receipt within a few weeks, and after the buyer has paid, the PayPal Giving Fund will automatically send the donation to us and send you a donation receipt. eBay will also credit you an equal percentage of your fees.

Here’s handy list of items that sell well on ebay:

  • IT equipment
  • High end perfume & cosmetics
  • Designer clothes/shoes
  • Clothes/shoes that are from stores like M&S, Next, Dorothy Perkins, River Island, Wallis
  • Quality jewellery (real gold, silver and diamonds would be a bonus)!
  • Musical instruments
  • Photographic equipment
  • Items of furniture for collection
  • Kitchen equipment
  • Quality books, puzzles and games
  • Antiques/collectables
  • Vinyls
  • Porcelain/China/Pottery

Here’s a video link describing how to list items on eBay for charity and a link to the web page that explains it all.
