Buying an eBay for Charity item

If you win an eBay for Charity listing, pay the seller following their payment instructions, as you would for any eBay listing.

eBay has chosen PayPal Giving Fund, a charity, to administer eBay for Charity. PayPal Giving Fund will collect the donation from the seller and forward it to the charity.

Note: When you buy from a charity selling on its own behalf, you are paying the charity directly.
