eBay’s making it easier than ever to stretch your budget and spread the joy this holiday season. With eBay Group Gifts (Beta) your friends and family can “chip-in” on the perfect gift for someone in your circle. To set up a Group Gift, all you need is an eBay and PayPal account–anyone with a credit card can then chip in! You can even use your Facebook friends list to make it easy.
Here’s how it works:
- Go to eBay Group Gift (Beta) and specify your recipient and the gifting occasion—or upload and choose a recipient from your Facebook friends list.
- Find the perfect Fixed Price item—you can search, browse, get customized suggestions based on info gathered from your recipient’s Facebook profile, or select an item from one of your eBay lists.
- Decide how much you’ll contribute and share your PayPal email address so your friends know where to send their contributions.
- Write a personal message for your friend—this will be included in a group e-card that all contributors can add messages to.
- Spread the word via email, Facebook or Twitter or a shareable url.
