eBay to highlight acts of kindness from the global seller community

No primary category set

eBay will be posting mini-stories throughout the next couple of months to highlight the individual acts of kindness from their global seller community during the COVID-19 outbreak. This week eBay are highlighting the kindness of UK eBay seller Jade Oliver, owner of Heavenly Homes & Gardens.

Jade decided to help those worried about cash flow due to the pandemic by offering deals to anyone shopping from her store. Vital social distancing measures meant UK consumers were not able to celebrate Mothers Day as they usually would have and so she also discounted all items relating to Mothers Day to help create pockets of joy for those who were tight on savings but still want to treat their mothers. She even helped by adding a personal touch for gifts sent directly to mothers by offering to wrap the gifts for free and handwriting notes on the customers behalf.

For Jade, she wanted to help her customers show their mothers they were thinking of them, even while from far away.

“In the run up to Mother’s Day, people were being advised not to visit their mothers, It was also beginning to get difficult for people to visit the shops, as they were now working from home and being advised to avoid crowded places.”
– Jade Oliver

Jade is based in Bristol and sells a variety of home furniture and decor on her eBay online store, Heavenly Homes & Gardens. She wants people to know that despite the difficult and challenging times for businesses amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the one silver lining she has seen is watching how her neighbors and local community are coming together to help one another.

“I have seen countless offers of support to our local community from my neighbors either via notes through the letterbox or Facebook groups, I have also seen neighbors delivering homemade soup to the elderly and doing anything they can to help out.”
– Jade Oliver

  1. Perhaps i’m missing something, and all respect to Jade if i am, but i’m not reading the description of a hero anywhere in this article.

    “Rachel sells seasonal product, the season was likely to be a bust due to corona,
    so she lowered prices on the seasonal products.”
    that’s just common sense, it’s not for the benefit of anyone but the business. i don’t see how it’s being considered an “act of kindness” needing highlighted. though cynical me is screaming that she probably knows someone over at ebay HQ.

    also if she’s based in Bristol, why have you linked the ebay.com store?

  2. We get he odd request to include a message which we do for free as they are few and far between.

    Nothing elaborate, Comic Sans on plain paper.

    Most requests usually include the message and a thank you and arrive around the same time as the order.

    The ones that tend not to get done are the ones that ask if you can include the message but do not include the text and so i have to reply and ask for it and hope they get it back to me before that days mail goes out.

    The parcel will be dispatched on time.
