Why the donation goes to PayPal Giving Fund first
- As the nonprofit administering eBay for Charity, we make sure that donations happen as promised.
- We collect all donations—whether they resulted from a charity listing or from a Donate Now gift--before passing them along to the benefiting nonprofit.
- This allows us to provide tax receipts for each donation, so you don’t have to. Plus, we’ll follow up with any Community Sellers who are late making their donation as promised.
- In the event that a Community Seller or Donate Now donor needs their donation back or waived, PayPal Giving Fund takes care of that for you too.
