NCBI, the National Council for the Blind of Ireland, have just launched a charity shop on eBay Ireland. The move comes as NCBI strives to expand their offering by appealing to the 162 million global users of eBay. People can now support NCBI by buying one of kind treasures from the comfort of their own home.
NCBI eBay Shop is the Place for Savvy Shoppers
NCBI has built up a robust reputation among treasure trovers in recent years and its retail outlets boast high quality items from housewares to clothing. The NCBI eBay store is a great place for savvy shoppers to pick up a bargain whilst also giving back. The store features a diverse range of items from coveted pre-loved designer brands to first edition copies of classic literature titles.
We are hoping that this new online shop will help us reach and connect with a new base of customers and supporters. Our new online shop promises high end goods at affordable prices. We must raise €4 out of every €10 we spend on services, so we are hoping that our new eBay shop will help to make a vital contribution to our fundraising efforts.
Speaking about the launch of NCBI’s eBay store, Chris White, CEO of NCBI said, “NCBI is delighted to have teamed up with eBay to launch eBay’s first Irish online charity shop. NCBI has over 80 charity shops located around Ireland and we are hoping to expand our reach with eBay”.
Hazel Mitchell, Site Director at eBay Ireland, said, “By opening an eBay store NCBI is exposing its wonderful inventory to a global audience. We hope that through our support, NCBI can leverage this amazing platform to make sales on a larger scale than they would through their retail outlets alone. At eBay we are dedicated to charity on both a local and global level and are immensely proud of the continuous support our teammates give to their local communities through fundraising and volunteer work.”
NCBI is supported by the team in eBay Ireland, Blanchardstown who have been offering guidance from store set up, image guides, stock selection and promotion. eBay Ireland are dedicated to assisting Irish charities with their UK counterparts raising over £19,000,000 for charities in the last year alone.
