In 2019, eBay supported more than 8,000 UK charities to raise £27 million for their causes, providing a shop window to the world that unlocks the chance to reach over £190 million potential buyers.
As part of its ongoing support for the charity community, eBay for Charity has recently announced Charity Connect: Advance. An intensive training programme, which will help charities boost online revenues, runs for six months from September and there are 500 places up for grabs.
Dedicated eBay specialists will guide charities through everything they need to know about selling on eBay through a mix of 1:1 sessions, group surgeries, webinars and access to learning materials. The Charity Connect: Advance curriculum will include a broad range of topics to help charities at all stages of their eBay journey, including onboarding and set up, Seller Centre, VAT, eBay policies, selling limits, and business policies. In addition, training from consultants in topics helpful to drive awareness of charity eBay stores, like advertising and social media will be available.
Alongside the launch of Charity Connect: Advance, eBay for Charity will be unveiling a guide to fundraising on eBay for Charity which will be hosted on site to help charities navigate the platform’s fundraising programmes, answer frequently asked questions and provide inspiration and ideas on how to further engage and excite supporters to help raise further funds on eBay.
Places are limited, so please register your interest here for a place on the programme https://pages.ebay.co.uk/charityconnect.
Charities can also celebrate their fundraising success and share their story by entering into the eBay for Business Awards https://ebayawards.com/.
