eBay Giving Works fee credits
In this article
In this article


You can support your favorite cause by participating in the eBay Giving Works program. Donate 10% to 100% (or at least 1% for eBay Motors vehicle sales) of the final sale price of an item to a certified nonprofit organization. In the spirit of giving, eBay rewards your generosity by offering an eBay Giving Works fee credit.
