eBay in partnership with Social Enterprise UK and The World Fair Trade Organization are leading a new programme designed to accelerate the growth of the social enterprise sector in the UK, which is an incredibly exciting opportunity for social enterprises looking to grow their business online and their social impact.

The 12 month programme launched in May 2021 and we now have almost 100 social enterprises selling on eBay.co.uk.

We’ve already had great feedback from our customers, the media as well as the social enterprises on the programme.

We’re now looking to invite a further 200 to join in the next couple of months to go live on eBay.co.uk from May with a second group of 200 due to come onboard in September. Could this be you?

We have used our small business expertise to design a programme to enable social enterprises to grow their business on ebay.co.uk through the eBay for Change hub, you can see this here.


We are planning to scale the programme over the next 3 years with the ultimate ambition of becoming the go to destination for social enterprise and Fair Trade ecommerce.

The programme offers free fees for the first year along with an in-depth package of support that will help you every step of the way, from learning the basics through to scaling your business combined with access to the estimated 26 million eBay UK customers.

What next?
