Imagine something that was fun to take part in, good news for everybody and was simple to do. Add to this it would benefit local charities at no real cost to those taking part, you could get a bargain or clear out your unwanted stuff.
mBay.es is an online auction site dedicated to people on the island of Mallorca. It costs nothing to use, you get to clear out those unwanted articles cluttering up your, cupboards, terrace or garage. You don’t have to leave your home to do it (beats lugging that sofa down to the charity shop!), and it takes only a couple of minutes. If it sells, then you don’t have to worry about shipping it to Barcelona or Timbuktu.
Equally, on the other side, you get to bid on items that interest you and, if you’re lucky, you get to pick up an excellent bargain. One person’s junk is another’s treasured item! Again, no shipping or pick-up problems and the excitement of out-bidding other interested people.
The ‘icing on this cake’ is that mBay.es benefits your choice of any of the selected local charities. If your auctions sells, you pledge a small amount of your ‘winnings’ to one the charities. How much this is and which charity is entirely your choice. mBay.es does not enter into any auction transaction of donation pledge – this is directly between the people taking part.
mBay.es takes no fees, makes no charges or receives no commissions. The service is entirely free. mBay.es does welcome support and sponsorship to its maintenance and development fund to help extend the mBay.es service but this is entirely voluntary and incidental.
The object of mBay.es is having fun with an auction, bringing local people together for mutual benefit with the added satisfaction of bringing desperately needed help to our local charities.
