Sell It Forward – eBay tests donations program

eBay is reinvigorating its core market with a host of new experiments. But eBay’s latest initiative, a new charitable experiment called Sell It Forward, is a little different from the other recent efforts that have focused mostly on re-branding and expanding the reach of PayPal.

eBay has partnered with a with non-profit organisation Goodwill to allows users to sell their unused clothes, shoes and handbags more easily but reducing pain of listing items on ebay, and donate half the proceeds to Goodwill.

This new initiative is called Sell it Forward. You sign up on its website and receive a postage pre-paid mailer for gently-used clothing, shoes, and handbags.
If an item is deemed saleable and it sells within two weeks, eBay will offer customers 50 percent of the proceeds, with the resulting 50 percent helping to fund Goodwill’s operations and charitable efforts. If they do not sell, the customer gets a receipt for a donation they can use for tax purposes.

For now, this pilot programm, Sell it Forward is open only to people in the San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin counties in California. eBay said it hopes to expand to other locations very soon. People who sign up for Sell it Forward will be alerted once it’s available in their area.
