eBay reduces minimum donation to charities

first_imgThe company said that more than 60 per cent of all seller donations are currently under £10 and MissionFish will deduct significantly less for smaller donations, and slightly more from larger gifts. So far more than 1,000 charities have signed up to benefit from donations and are also able to sell their own items. There is no minimum donation or MissionFish deductions for charities selling items themselves.Changes take effect from 28 September and eBay said it would be announcing major charity campaigns in the near future for the eBay community to get involved in. eBay has announced changes to its ‘eBay for Charity’ programme that allows sellers to donate between 10 and 100 per cent of the proceeds form a sale to charity.To date, sellers have been asked to give a minimum of £5 if their listing sells and this has now been reduced to £2 to include more sellers with smaller items for sale. The minimum MissionFish deduction will be reduced to 40p for a £2 donation and Mission Fish will no longer take any deductions from the Gift Aid it collects for charities from donations.eBay will continue to donate the same percentage of final value fees as the seller donates of their sale price.

‘Capitalist parties & economy in decline’

first_imgI send my greetings to the 2016 Workers World Party Conference. I have attended every conference since 1962, but medical reasons did not permit it this year.I want to congratulate the Party on running a dynamic election campaign. I also want to send special greetings to the many youth attending the conference.The firestorm of local demonstrations that has greeted the victory of the racist, misogynistic, authoritarian billionaire Donald Trump is truly heartwarming. Boastful intimidation has been met by resistance from Portland to Miami, from Chicago to Dallas.We are in a new political period in the U.S. It has been a new period since the simultaneous rise of Trump and Bernie Sanders. This signified a crisis for both political parties of the capitalist class.The Democratic Party and the Republican Party have been the political pillars of U.S. capitalism since the Civil War. They have been the durable instruments that have sustained capitalist rule. Both these pillars are now trembling. And they are trembling as a result of the world capitalist economic crisis.This crisis has undermined the multinational working class globally, and that includes in the U.S. The political crisis in the U.S. is catching up with the corrosive economic crisis and irreversible decline.Our Party has prepared for and patiently awaited a political opening for revolutionary Marxism in the U.S. With the response to Trump and the Sanders campaign, as well as developments like the Black Lives Matter movement, there are rays of light beginning to shine through this opening.Trump will not be able to fulfill his wild demagogic economic promises to the workers. You cannot restore jobs that have been destroyed and no longer exist because of technology.The Democratic Party leadership is in a shambles and is becoming more and more discredited. This leaves the field open for a revolutionary party to plunge into the political and economic struggle and build up its forces with the aim of destroying capitalism altogether.
