eBay Giving Works

Today I am going to meet with the Charity I work with Ruth's House in Haverhill, MA. I have been selling for them for the past 6 months and it just dawned on me that eBay Giving Works would be a perfect fit for Ruth's House. This way instead of issuing checks monthly like other consignors, the money will automatically be deposited into their bank account once the item has sold! Here is some information directly from the eBay Giving Works page:

Why sell through eBay Giving Works?

Turn your eBay listings into a force for good with eBay Giving Works. With each listing, you can pledge to donate from 10% to 100%* of the final sale price to your favorite nonprofit and get a pro-rated credit from us on your Insertion and Final Value fees when your listing sells.

Key Advantages:

  • Support the non-profits and causes you love and in turn, feel good!
  • Receive a fee credit when your item sells. When your listing sells, we'll credit back yourInsertion and Final Value Fees by the same percentage you pledged. Giving 50% of your item's final sale price? You'll get back 50% of your fees. Giving 100%? You get full credit on these fees.
  • Attract buyers with your compassion and generosity. Every eBay Giving Works listing stands out by displaying this special ribbon ribbon icon. Your listing will also have a special section devoted to your selected nonprofit and your donation commitment so that your buyers know that when they purchase from you, they're also helping a great cause.
Research shows that a seller's connection to charity serves as a quality or trustworthiness signal for consumers, with fewer customer complaints found about charity-intensive sellers and higher sale probabilities on products that benefit charity. To learn more about this study, watch this video.

Selling for Charity is Easy!

When you list your item for sale on eBay, there's a special section in the listing form where you can pledge to donate from 10% to 100% of the final sale price of your item. If your item sells, we'll automatically calculate and deduct your donation (the minimum deduction is $1), and we'll make sure your donation gets to the nonprofit safely and securely.**
If your favorite nonprofit is not automatically listed, simply click the link to select another nonprofit that you love.

Welcome to the Boston Fashion House blog Site!

Boston Fashion House has been in business since 2000 and has been an eBay trading assistant since the program's inception. (Please click the link at the bottom of this blog to read about the Trading Assistant Program!) We specialize in designer clothing, accessories and shoes. We accept mall labels all the way up to couture labels. The condition should be well pressed and not too worn. A good indication of items that would be best suited to donate versus sell is if there is pilling and fading. Approximately 18,000 "ebayers" view our eBay store monthly so the turnover rate on consigned merchandise is higher than a normal brick and mortar consignment shop in your local downtown. Another point that sets us apart is since we have a high turnover your items are more than likely going to sell at the full value we originally list them at ad wont sit in the the clearance section of a mom and pop consignment store! Also, we have a worldwide clientele so there is no such thing as seasonal items at Boston Fashion House. Right now it could be snowing in Maine and sunny in Southern California so all items are welcome regardless of the season!

The terms are cut and dry, you receive 50% of the final sale price, all marketing, shipping fees, Internet fees, storage etc are on us .. no fine print!

Please take a moment to visit our two websites ; and

If you are interested please contact us asap either by email: or by phone: 978-551-1116
