When Did Goodwill Start Selling Online?

Goodwill began selling items online in 2010 at shopgoodwill.com. It was the first online auction site owned and operated by a nonprofit organization. Goodwill also sells thousands of items on eBay.com and Amazon.com.

Goodwill sells a wide range of new and nearly new products online, including art, antiques and collectibles, and tableware and kitchenware, from a large inventory of items donated to Goodwill stores across the United States.

Items for sale online are organized by category, such as jewelry and gemstones, musical instruments, electronics, and vehicles. Users can also view items by location, or based on the amount of time left in the auction.

Founded in 1902, Goodwill sells donated items to fund education, job training and employment services for people with disabilities and other barriers.
