Hi, and thanks for the reply. I refreshed the token and the account info, and the charities still don’t show up. I’m wondering if the function itself is out of date, as it mentions that a “Mission Fish” account is required, but this is not required on the eBay webpage.
Sellers on auction website eBay will be able to donate a proportion of their proceeds to charity direct from their eBay accounts from March.
Currently, charity supporters selling items on the auction site have to leave eBay and visit a separate site, MissionFish.org.uk, in order make donations to good causes through the eBay for Charity scheme.
The programme will be relaunched in March so that sellers can manage their donations without leaving eBay.
Thank you! I’m using GarageSale 7.0.7. I quit GS, deleted the Charities.leveldb
folder, and re-opened, then clicked on the Charity button. A new set of
charities is available, but many are missing, including my favorited ones.
The only popup message I received during this procedure said “Downloading
charities list …”
Did you see any messages in the Console utility? You can find it in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder. Just open it and search for GarageSale in the upper right search field. Then download the charities again.
If there are no messages about timeouts, the list is complete, as we do download it from eBay through the API. We can contact eBay and ask for missing organisations if you tell me which are available through eBay but not through GarageSale/the API.
Sorry for your time wasted, but there was actually a bug in GarageSale’s code for downloading charity information. If you download the version from the link below, refresh the charity information, you should see all the organisations from your screenshot:
