Managing your donation account

What is a donation account?

Your Donation Account in My eBay is the place you can keep track of the nonprofit donations you've made by selling items through eBay for Charity and donating when paying for items during the eBay checkout process.

Viewing your donation account and donation history

Go to your Donation Account.

Authorizing PayPal Giving Fund to manage your donations

You can go to Site Preferences in My eBay to make sure PayPal Giving Fund is authorized to manage your donation account. Here's how:

  1. Go to My eBay. You may be asked to sign in.

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

  3. Scroll to Third-party authorizations in the General Preferences section, and then click the Show link.

  4. Confirm that PayPal Giving Fund is authorized on your behalf.

Note: To revoke the PayPal Giving Fund authorization, select the Revoke this authorization check box. If you revoke the authorization, you won't be able to make donations through the eBay for Charity program.

Deciding how eBay for Charity can use your contact information

When you make a donation through eBay for Charity, we share your contact information with the nonprofit. If you'd prefer to keep your contact information private, you can change your eBay Preferences. Here's how:

  1. Go to My eBay. You may be asked to sign in.

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

  3. In the Selling Preferences section, scroll to eBay for Charity and then click the Show link.

  4. Clear the Yes check box.

  5. Click the Apply button.

Specifying your donation payment method

When you start selling with eBay for Charity you need to put a payment method on file for making donations. By default, your donation payment method is the same as your automatic payment method for paying eBay fees.
