eBay’s mission is to be the world’s favourite destination for discovering great value and unique selection
eBay for Change Partners: Introduction in video
eBay for Change has been launched, designed to make shopping from small businesses that give back to local communities, more accessible. You can read more about it here.
With a third of the UK believing that helping disadvantaged communities must be prioritised as part of the nation’s recovery, eBay believes their marketplace has an important role to play in ensuring that they help to build a future economy that works for everyone.
The ‘eBay for Change’ hub connects over 29 million eBay shoppers with up to 50 small businesses at launch, with plans to scale, that each have a clear social mission. Shoppers will be able to access a broad range of products from clothes to homeware, and jewellery to collectables.
Every purchase made will have a direct, positive impact on supporting disadvantaged communities – whether that’s providing job or training opportunities, or tackling social problems like homelessness, exclusion, improving people’s life chances, or supporting environmental action.
With eBay for Change partners Social Enterprise UK, the World Fair Trade Organisation and UnLtd, watch the video below to see how eBay for Change is making a difference.

“At eBay, we believe that business can be a powerful force for positive change, and with the scale of our marketplace, we have an important role to play in ensuring that we help to build a future economy that works for everyone.
The pandemic has caused a seismic shift in our society and given birth to a new kind of solidarity that is transforming the way we act as a community. We feel more impassioned about social change than we have ever been. We want to make changes that will not only build back better for the UK, but also for communities all around the world.
With eBay for Change, our customers will receive a great product, as well as the satisfaction that the proceeds from their purchase will make a real difference and support communities – empowering economic opportunity in new ways to create a better future for all.”
– Rob Hattrell, SVP Head of Europe, eBay
