EBAY AUSTRALIA Buckscoop ALL FOR CHARITY fund LIVE AGAIN!!!

Posted By: nod, posted 2007/09/30 05:03
Ebay Australia is now an active merchant on Buckscoop.
However, as the merchants page states, we are unable to offer any form of cashback on Ebay. So we have decided ALL CASHBACK GENERATED WILL BE DONATED TO CHARITY

Since it will be your sales or registrations on Ebay that will be generating the cashback, we decided that it is you that should decide on the list of Charities.

SO WE ARE CALLING FOR ALL MEMBERS TO SUBMIT A SUGGESTION FOR A CHARITY. WE WILL NEED 12 AS WE ARE GOING TO BE DONATING TO ONE CHARITY EACH MONTH.
AT THE END OF EACH MONTH WE WILL ANNOUNCE IN THIS THREAD THE TOTAL OF OUR DONATION AND CONFIRM THE CHARITY.
THE ONLY RESTRICTION IS IT MUST BE A REGISTERED AUSTRALIAN CHARITY

So let's start the list below.

    Excellent!!

    My choice is The Australian Cancer Research Foundation - http://www.acrf.com.au http://www.loyal.k12.wi.us/forum/images/smilies/36_1_40.gif

    ** I posted my choice in the other thread as well nod PLUS what's the minimum requirements for the $10 USD? **
  • elegantegotist2007/09/30 20:26:48
    This is so wonderful I am 100% behind this ! Help yourself to a bargain and help a charity at the same time !

    $10 is for each new registration through buckscoop

    20% is from the final value fees for each completed transaction via buckscoop. Please correct me if I'm wrong but this is what I interpreted from the ebay merchant section.

    Can I just ask is it Ebay's rule that the cashback cannot be given back to the purchasers ?

    My vote goes to BEYOND BLUE - the national depression initiative. They help people with depression, anxiety, postnatal depression and bipolar. A very worthy cause in my opinion.

  • lilpretzel2007/09/30 20:39:33
    Excellent choice elegantegotist, been and still there :(


    Is it also posiible to have a section to place links to our auctions?

    Sorry I'm very excited over this idea, I've got some stuff I was going to put on ebay today but will wait until further info is posted :w00t:
  • Rick2007/09/30 20:59:53
    My vote is for Variety, the best children's charity.

    Hey Rick Welcome to Buckscoop.

    If you guys can pop your charity here


    Is it also posiible to have a section to place links to our auctions?



    Sorry Lilpretzel, we wish to keep the forum clean of ebay links.
  • jayne2007/09/30 21:14:01
    Hello Rick, I see you've been lurking for a while. Good to see you posting!! Welcome to the spend-fest that is Buckie!!

    Re the 20% this is actually 20% of the commission that Ebay normally keep from each sale - so what they charge to have the sale occur on the site

    And yes it is Ebay that stipulate that they do not allow any cashback in any form. If we do they will boot us off the program. But we can list them and donate all the cashback to charity.

    And guys if you are in the giving mood or know someone that is thinking of sponsoring a World Vision child read here

    It does say 10c but you have to ignore this - it is the only way we could get the software to work properly. But I can guarantee that the total $45 will be donated back to World Vision
  • Smarmie2007/09/30 21:29:57
    Fabulous idea guys!
    Can I suggest the Ride for Youth, which each year conducts a charity bike ride from Albany to Perth in aid of Youth Focus - they help young people, especially those in the country, deal with depression and those at risk of suicide?
    My husband is doing the ride for a second time next year in April and I'm sure this great cause would greatly appreciate the donation!!
  • Keeys2007/09/30 21:38:23
    Can I ask a question my email account for ebay is totally different from my ebay account (I use hotmail for ebay) Its also in my hubbies name. Will this still pay out then ? I'd hate for my purchases (way to many of them) or sales to not count :(

    Some suggested charities.....Royal Flying Doctors, Make A Wish, Starlight Foundation, Guide Dogs, Red Cross, Childrens hospitals, Legacy, The Salvation Army, Rhonald McDonald House and 1000's more they are jusy what cam to mind.

    My pick of these would be Guide Dogs. We actually have alot to do with them for our 9mths old and they have been fantastic. They work with more than just guide dogs for each person with a dog there is aprox 120 with a cane. Our son will momst likly be one of them and from the age of 3 mths we have been reciving support.

    Having said that there as so many worth while causes out there.
  • jayne2007/09/30 22:16:32
    I don't think the email addys you are using would matter, as long as you click through the BS link, all the tracking is based on the buckscoop cookies, not email adresses or account names, afaik. I'm sure Nod will confirm this later :)
  • lilpretzel2007/09/30 22:24:56
    Decided to make a new account to receive the US$10 cashback, I can't believe I was able to score lilpretzel :w00t:

    ummmm now what was I looking at buying :whistling:
  • fairybelle2007/09/30 22:44:27
    lilpretzel
    Excellent!!

    My choice is The Australian Cancer Research Foundation - http://www.acrf.com.au http://www.loyal.k12.wi.us/forum/images/smilies/36_1_40.gif

    ** I posted my choice in the other thread as well nod PLUS what's the minimum requirements for the $10 USD? **


    I will be with you on this ...... GO ...cancer research!!!
  • nod2007/09/30 23:06:21
    Hey keeys,
    Jayne is correct
    Your login details will not affect the tracking of the cashback. All you need to do it to remember that you click through from Buckscoop to pick up the tracking cookie.
    And one thing I think I should have said is that can we keep it to one charity idea from each member
  • nod2007/09/30 23:14:56
    Thanks guys
    I think what I will do is stop once we have 12 and then maybe draw the order they appear in out of a hat.
    SO far we have:
    1.Aust Cancer Foundation
    2. Diabetes Australia
    3. Beyond Blue
    4.Ride for Youth charity
    5. ASCA
    6. ADRA
    7. Guide Dogs
    8. ...


    So we have 5 more charity suggestions.
    Once we have 12 I will make up a draw type thing and pull the names out of the hat for their order

    But if people could post suggestions for the charity in here, it will be easier to keep track
  • lisss2007/09/30 23:31:30
    This is such a lovely idea :) I buy a lot on ebay so I will definitely be logging in through bucky every time I buy something!! The only problem is that sometimes I use sniping programs, so I guess those wins wouldn't count!
  • nod2007/09/30 23:45:07
    I am not 100% sure I am afraid Lisss
    I will see if I can find out though

    But regardless, every little bit counts :)
  • wheadle2007/10/01 01:06:57
    Hot vote nod. Great idea. My vote is with the starlight foundation
  • nod2007/10/01 09:54:34
    Thanks Wheadle, Starlight was suggested on the other thread and has taken up the 8th spot.
  • holdenmg2007/10/01 10:54:26
  • nod2007/10/01 11:02:59
    Old Fred can take up the number 9 position.
    So we have 3 more suggestions before we have our 12 quota

    Thanks Holdenmg
  • fairybelle2007/10/01 16:45:16
    another good one is http://www.openfamily.com.au/
  • nod2007/10/01 16:51:30
    That means we have out 12:

    1.Aust Cancer Foundation
    2. Diabetes Australia
    3. Beyond Blue
    4.Ride for Youth charity
    5. ASCA
    6. ADRA
    7. Guide Dogs
    8. Salvation Army
    9. WWF
    10. Fred Hollows Foundation
    11. Starlight
    12. Open family

    So over the next few days I will randomly decide the order in which the charities will appear in our donation list.

    Now all you need to do is go shopping at Ebay and make sure that you click through from Buckscoop first :)
  • fairybelle2007/10/01 19:43:57
    sounds pretty good nod considering im a ebay junkie.... so when does it start from? NOW?
  • mikepspencer2007/10/01 20:32:41
    I nominate beyondblue which is a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related substance misuse disorders in Australia.

  • admin2007/10/01 20:51:06
    :D - number 3 in the suggestions list mikespencer.

    Fairybelle - yes. Go knock yourself out. Its nice to be able to contribute, however small it may be, to good causes.
  • admin2007/10/06 01:09:42
    :) - good stuff you guys. We've seen the first ebay transactions come through. Here's hoping we can get a good volume going over time.

    Just click through the "go to deal" button in the first post before you make a purchase on ebay. Or else just use the merchant link:

    Not sure whether you've read this thread lindanat - apart from what Jayne has said - we've got 12 charities - cancer foundation is one - that will be getting your ebay transaction monies over the next year. I think its fantastic that people are keen to participate.
  • fairybelle2007/10/06 23:37:48
    Hey Admin do you get to find out how much we are donating to them... like a tally?
  • admin2007/10/06 23:50:03
    We'll keep you posted --- regularly...... :) - $10.08 USD so far this month...
  • Debz2007/10/06 23:58:02
    This is a great idea, well done Buckscoop.
  • fairybelle2007/10/07 01:03:08
    ok, im confused... how much per transaction do we get to donate?
  • nod2007/10/07 01:17:08
    We give to the nominated charity for that month a total of 100% what we get paid from Ebay.
    That is $10 per sign up - if they shop with Ebay within 30 days and 20% of Ebays cut of the sale for eg if Ebay would normally charge $10 for an item sold then we are given $2 that we then donate to charity
  • Keeys2007/10/07 01:22:29
    I have 8cents going to charity thus far lol
  • admin2007/10/07 01:32:27
    :) - 8 cents US - which used to be worth 14 and is now only 10. But having said that - it all counts.
  • lilpretzel2007/10/07 01:43:30
    I have US$10.11 to donate so far.

    :D
  • nod2007/10/07 01:52:10
    As Admin says, every little bit counts. Once we all start using Ebay we will have a nice little total that we can send on to charity.
  • jayne2007/10/07 02:07:29
    fairybelle;18787
    ok, im confused... how much per transaction do we get to donate?


    In addition to what Nod said above, it means the amount you are giving depends on what you buy. Obviously if you buy a car on ebay, then ebay are going to be charging the seller a big whack of a percentage of the final value fees, so it would be 20% of that.
  • admin2007/10/07 10:59:50
    The $10US for a sign up is a good amount I reckon. Interesting that they can afford to pay 10 bucks for a newbie sign up. Its a good indication of how much they reckon you'll earn them over the lifetime of your involvement.
  • nod2007/10/07 11:12:52
    The Order for our charities:

    [B]1. Guide Dogs

    I know that we had said 12 but I have checked and we have had 14 suggestions so far so here is the listing.

    So please remember that if you are going shopping at Ebay, please click through from Buckscoop first so that we can make the most of our charity donations.
    100% of the money we receive from Ebay will be donated to charity
  • randomlychaotic2007/10/07 12:11:53
    I know you've finished the list, but I wouldn't mind seeing the RSPCA on there
