Many of you will have seen the option to support a charity with a small donation when you complete eBay checkout using PayPal.
You can choose the charity (or charities) you see in eBay checkout by setting "Favourite Charities" in your eBay account.
1) Log into My eBay
2) Go to your Donation Account (under the Account Tab)
3) Visit the My Favourite Charities page
If you don't set any favourite charities, you'll be offered the chance to donate to a charity benefiting from the listing. If there isn't one, you'll see a random charity from the pool of featured charities that week.
Since November 2008, eBay buyers have generously donated over £3.5m to UK charities through eBay checkout.

You know Nick. I don't mind donating to charities, really I don't.
What I do mind however, is that if you use the 'Sell a similar item' option and forget that the charity donation is in place from a previous sale, and you 'list', you cannot go back and edit the charity button!!!!!!!! You're locked in!
Also, I've had loads of non-payers, yet my charity donation still gets taken!? Yes, there is a long and convoluted process to safeguard against that happening, but it's making me not want to donate!
