For some reason when i try selling on eBay.CA it does NOT show the option to give a % of the sale as a donation.
In the “Add Price, Quantity and Format” Policy.

Please help it’s a good cause and what a shame it won’t work.

Hi Zalman,

Just added in eBay Canada in one of our accounts and oh yea it’s missing.

You’ll need to raise this with M2E Pro directly.

Thanx Matt,

I emailed them waiting on a reply.

Just wondering you think i can have someone like on a site like elance to hard code in to my M2e Pro that every time i post something on eBay it would automatically donate 100% to the charity?

Maybe with these links?
http://developer.ebay.com/devz…..yType.html
http://developer.ebay.com/DevZ…..pport.html

And if yes, what is it exactly that i’m asking them to do?

Best regards,
Zalman

Ooops just to catch you up on eBay.ca charity.

The “eBay giving works” Program only works in the USA But they started in canada where a charity can sell their own goods.

Which is not very common i’m guessing so it’s not included in M2e Pro and most other listing tools as well.

Hey Zalman

If the ‘Giving Works’ programme is only based in the USA and Canada I can only imagine it hasn’t been a major feature request for many of the other listing tools or M2E Pro either.

I don’t know enough about coding to know what would be involved in something like that. I can only imagine trying to code something in to M2E would be difficult, as if they ever changed something it could potentially break whatever coding has been done for you to enable the charity option.

Would it not be easier to donate the money to charity separately once you had received the payment, or set up an alternate bank /paypal account for this sole purpose? Especially if donating 100% of the sale?

Great point did not think of that, it would be terribly hard having to update every time and fix it.

The reason why i’m going through all this trouble is, no eBay fees if 100% donated and second it’s good for SEO eBay says you show up higher if donating some to charity.

I pretty sure donating after the charity will get off the eBay fees.

Best regards,
Zalman
