What Happens After the Pickup?
After we pickup your items, we will inventory, photograph, list, sell and ship your items on eBay – one of the world’s largest and most popular online stores, to eBay shoppers from around the world. We pay all of the eBay fees, store fees, Pay Pal fees and shipping fees, so your organization can receive the maximum benefit possible.
Once the items are listed for sale in our store, you will receive a proprietary link to your organization’s eBay for Charity page, to share with your supporters, so that everyone can see the items for sale to benefit your organization, and exactly how much is to be donated. Your items will be available to millions of eBay buyers from around the world. We can ship items just about anywhere in the world.
Once an item sells, your organization will receive your proceeds directly from eBay through the Pay Pal Giving Fund, without incurring any fees whatsoever. It is a completely transparent and automated process, with your proceeds going directly to your organization’s Pay Pal account within 21 days of the sale.
Here’s how our program works and how the dollars add up. Please note, these percentages have been adjusted as of 1/1/2020 due to increased costs we have incurred from eBay and PayPal for listing fees, selling fees and final value fees.
Level 1 – Donors donate up to 99 items in sellable* condition, your charity receives 20% of the proceeds
Level 2 – Donors donate 100 -199 items in sellable* condition, your charity receives 30% of the proceeds
Level 3 – Donors donate over 200 items in sellable* condition, your charity receives 40% of the proceeds
*Sellable condition refers to items we are able to list and potentially sell. Not every item donated will be in sellable condition. Sellable items have no rips, tears, holes, chips, stains, damage, defects, etc. and if applicable are in good working order. We reserve the right to reject any item we feel is not in sellable condition. Non sellable items are discarded and not returned. Levels are calculated based on items we receive in sellable condition.
Depending on the number of items we receive in sellable condition, will determine the revenue stream you can expect to receive. Some of our clients have just one donation drive and they receive monthly income for a year or more, from their eBay sales. The better quality products you receive, the more money your group will make.

About eBay for Charity
Some non-profits sell directly on eBay – but there’s a lot to it and unless you have a dedicated person on staff, with a ton of space for inventory, and the time to research, value, photograph, sell, package and ship your items, then partnering with us makes more sense. Your employees, supporters and donors donate unwanted items and we do the rest!
RI Consignment is a RI based consignment store that sells gently used and new items to support charitable organizations. We do not consign with individuals – rather all of our consigned items are with nonprofits. We offer our services to non profits we feel offer worthwhile services in our community with proceeds from the sale of the items benefiting your organization. We have been working with non profits for several years and we have been selling on eBay for over 5 years. We are a top rated seller with the highest performance and customer service ratings.
All that we ask is that donated items be in sellable condition and be small enough to store and ship easily – no large items or furniture accepted. Ideally, every item your donors donate should be small enough to ship in a 12″ x 12″ x 12″ box if possible.
