Tazbar have announced the launch of their fundraising program, which will highlight charity listing on the site. Registered fundraisers get a collecting tin icon beside their listings, a chance to feature on the home page, and a “progress thermometer” which can be added to their own websites.
Fees for charity listings are 3% of the sale price, which is the same as Tazbar’s normal fee on basic seller accounts. This looks very favourable compared to deductions made by Missionfish on eBay for Charity listings; however, if the seller completes a Gift Aid form, together with eBay fee donations, charities will on average receive 10%-15% *above* the amount donated by the seller. Fundraisers might also consider that eBay’s higher traffic levels are likely to generate more interest in their items in the first place.
