After a few updates from PayPal and a new agreement with them, we're now
listed on "eBay for charity".
This means that, by going to
you can donate a portion of the proceeds from any eBay sales you make to
Wikimedia UK. In return, eBay will waive a percentage of the fees for your
sale equal to the percentage you donate. You can also Gift Aid the amount
you donate, and we'll get the Gift Aid on the donated funds, too!
You can read more about the scheme at
. There's also a benefit in
that our general PayPal donation fees (which we pay on donations made
through credit/debit cards) are reduced.
If you have any questions, or want to know more, please let me know. I
can't promise I'll be able to answer them all, but I'll try!
All the best,
