Making your donation payment

Viewing your donations due

The Donations Due section of My eBay shows donations you owe on your eBay Giving Works listings that sold, including overdue donations. For completed eBay Giving Works sales, you can make your donation in one of 2 ways:

  • Have the amount automatically withdrawn from your preferred donation payment method on the donation due date

  • Make a onetime payment

Automatic donation collection

Your donation will be collected automatically by PayPal Giving Fund, our nonprofit partner, 22 to 28 days after your listing ends successfully, unless you make a onetime payment. Donations are due on the 4th Monday after the listing sells. If your item doesn't sell, no donation is due.

One-time donation payments

When you list an item using eBay Giving Works and it sells successfully, your donation will be due to the nonprofit. You can see all your donations due from the Donations Due section of My eBay. From there, you can also make a onetime donation payment using either the donation payment method you have on file, or by selecting one of these options:

  • PayPal

  • Direct Pay

  • Credit card

If your donation is overdue, or your donations due add up to $1,000 or more, you have 2 additional payment method options:

  • Bank-certified check

  • Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

Choosing to make a onetime donation with an alternate payment method doesn't change your donation payment method on file.

By making a onetime donation payment you:

  • Send your donation to PayPal Giving Fund more quickly, up to 22 days faster than automatic donation collection

  • Select your payment method each time

  • Have the option to waive your right to request a refund and get your tax receipt right away

To make a onetime donation:
  1. Go to My eBay. You may be asked to sign in.

  2. Place your pointer over the Account tab, and then select Donation Account.

  3. Click the Donations Due link.

  4. In your Donations Due section, select the donations you want to make, and then click the Continue button. You can select one, several, or all of your donations due.

  5. Choose a payment method, and then click the Continue button. Provide the requested payment details, and follow the directions on the screen.

  6. Review the details of your donation.
