How on earth does Missionfish get away with taking 20% of the money raised by selling an item that is going directly to charity? This seems to be a real ripoff. 20%? Really? I asked a rescue group to sign up for it and the president said no - they take way more then they should. I am sorry that I got another group to. I am sorry I sold stuff through Missionfish. I should have done my homework - but I never imagined Missionfish would take 20%. Does Ebay have a soul? There is no way this is just to cover costs except someone at Missionfish is paying themselves handsomely to do thsi. This needs to be investigated!!!!
I think 20% is too much too. Further, and the reason I found this thread, is either MissionFish or Ebay Giving itself, is painfully slow.
A fund was started that I wanted to donate to. I remembered I had an item sell and I had a donation due. I just paid it. It was my final item and I looked up my donation history and the righthand column shows 'donation status'. The four oldest show 'delivered' but the last six show 'paid'. "What the hell is that?" I thought.
Pointed at a 'delivered' one and it shows the paid and delivered dates. One month apart. Pointed at a 'paid' one and they all show as two months!
In every case, I checked the box that makes it sound like the charity gets the money immediately and I am not eligible for a refund.
How and why does it take a month for the charity to get the funds? I think this is complete B.S. Immoral and unethical. Illegal? I don't know.
So, in this day of electronic everything financial, MF and eBay Giving, are holding funds so they can make some interest on funds that I directed to be sent immediately to the charity of MY choice?!?!?
Check you donation history and see for yourself.
I agree. The Mission Fish is a rip off.
Trying to get rid of this donation account is a pain also.
Can not any doc to get ou of it
How to remove Unauthorizaed third party (Mission Fish) from your Ebay Account. After donating today. I read this blog. I went to my "Account", "Site Prefence" scrolled down to Third Party authorization and sure enough Mission Fish was automaticaly added on to my Ebay account. I checked the "removed the authorization" button. I hope this helps and works. Ebay should send an automatic email to tell people who has third party authorization to their account. I would think in this ecomony they would not want to piss buyers off.
