We handle all the logistics of the sale, including our 30-day Buyer Assurance Guarantee (on shipped items), make sure the charity is IRS-approved, that all proceeds of the sale go to the charity, and that the donor and buyer receive proper documentation. We pay all credit card and transaction processing fees, return shipping and insurance fees and customer support costs. Charities pay us a small fee to provide these services.
