eBay have launched their own Hurricane Sandy site and Paypal have started a disaster relief campaign, both allowing users to pledge a donation to go towards the relief efforts. Like many donation efforts that eBay have run in the past, online sellers can pledge a percentage of a sold item anywhere from 10% to 100%.
Currently over 1,900 sellers have pledged a donation to the relief effort through the sale of over 18,000 items.
Paypal's Hurricane Sandy relief site allows users to pledge donations to one of four different organisations; American Red Cross, The Humane Society, Team Rubicon and The Salvation Army. Paypal are also waiving any fees they usually charge on a donation pledged by any user.
