Fundraising - E-Bay
If you are having a spring clear out and have any unwanted clutter, it can now be sold on eBay to help raise funds for the Myotubular Trust.

Selling items is easy

1. Once you are ready to sell your item, go to the Sell hub and select 'Advanced Sell'.

2. Complete your details, remembering to look out for the charity box just below where you set your price. Select the Myotubular Trust as your charity to support and the percentage (10%-100%) of your final selling price that you would like to donate. The minimum donation is £1 per listing.

3. A week after your item sells, MissionFish (eBay's charity partner) will automatically collect the donation from you. You can also manage your donations through the 'My Donations' section of My eBay, under the 'My Account tab'. Any fee credits will appear on your next invoice.

Every time you list an item for the Myotubular Trust, you will get a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate, which means if you donate 50% of your selling price to a charity, eBay will waive 50% of your fees.

You will also be given a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate every time you list an item for charity.

eBay for Charity listings are the same as any other eBay listing, except for the blue and yellow eBay for Charity ribbon that appears in the search results, together with the Myotubular Trust's mission statement and logo, meaning your listing can be seen by everyone who searches through It will also get extra visibility through the eBay for Charity pages.

Don't forget Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the Myotubular Trust will receive an extra 28 pence from the government. Simply tick the Gift Aid box when you first list an item for charity. MissionFish will then collect the Gift Aid from the government and pass it on to your chosen charity.
