Good to see they are back on. I collect science fiction books and I would go for the odd buy-it-now on eBay - this will be a nice bonus.

Doesn't look like quidco confirmed their decision about what they will do with the extra 21p per transaction though.... I personally hope it goes to Charity.

I thought they would let us know before accepting the 14p. :confused:

Well, if it's money I've earned for Quidco I'd like it to go to the CF Trust Charity :thumbsup:

I buy and sell a lot on ebay, but I'll not be going through Quidco until I know where the 21p is going. :x

Sorry, but I'm disappointed in Quidco.

why not just go through it anyway.......the thing you can be sure of is quidco won't be keeping it for themselves....maybe there's an update on the quidblog ?

There is.............


[B]EDIT:
Decision made!
Ok decision time!
First of all thanks to everyone that has contributed to this thread and helped us out thinking of different ways to do things. It’s great to see the community involvement here and that we have so many members that care about Quidco and what we’re doing. So thanks guys http://www.quidco.com/blog/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif
Our decision is to donate the extra 21p to charity.
There were basically two options that were popular in this thread and that we got the green light from eBay on: (1) donate to charity or (2) put it towards admin fees. I think the charity idea had a slight edge of support in user comments but when making a decision we also felt that charity was the better option. There are a few reasons but the main reason is that it still ties in with a member’s personal Quidco account. This way when you buy on eBay through Quidco you can personally see that you are giving 21p to charity. If we had put it towards fees then the users who use eBay would be basically subsidising other users fees…so your eBay activity would be funding someone else’s fees even if they had never used eBay.
To us it looked like a win win situation (as much as it could be). Members are still virtually “earning” 35p but they virtually donate 21p to charity each time. So it’s like, get 14p for a BIN at eBay and give 21p to charity. I think we can all agree that is good thing http://www.quidco.com/blog/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif
The difficult problem we have is that if you had actually received that 21p then you could donate to any charity you wished. Due to the admin problems with that we just don’t have a way to do it right now. At this point we will donate the eBay 21p’s to our Quidco charities which are Macmillan Cancer Research and the Motor Neuron Disease Association. These are both chosen for personal reasons here. What we do want to do is open up some way of having a monthly third option but we need to get something in place to give members the ability to vote and such. We don’t have that right now but please be assured we are moving that way as it would be great to have a nice system where members have a vote towards a Quidco charity of the month.
Well that’s that then! Please feel free to comment on this and so forth but it is a decision now and we are going to go forward with it http://www.quidco.com/blog/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif Ideas on implementation etc are probably the most constructive comments….

Yep - total abuse of the system.

Glad to see it's back on, I buy a few items off ebay so might as well get some more pennies in.

I only made one purchase going through Quidco today and it's showing up. No amount yet but the transaction shows up.
#10
Its great that its back on and anything is better then nothing plus money going to charity makes the deal even sweeter .Its a great result .I will use it but not abuse it .
#11
there is no way it could possibly be abused....
#12
For some people it's a heck of a lot of 14p's Arzon!! :-D
#13
Yes, but for those who buy-it-now anyway it's a nice little bonus which would otherwise not be paid to anyone and kept by eBay.

Ever heard of the saying "look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves"?

Okay, so it's not an offer worth making lots of Buy It Now's for but it's nice to get at least something back.

Your not getting 14p tho are you, your getting 35p!

And thats 35p that ebay arnt getting which cant be a bad thing!
#15
gary_rip - You're not getting 35p though, you're getting 14p and the other 21p is going to charity.

I think the whole thing is completely ridiculous, here's 35p, but you can only give 14p to your users.

dinosteveus - I liked your idea to select your own charity, if you are forced to give money to charity at least be allowed to select which one it goes to.

QuidCo should have held their ground and said no.

I am... I'm choosing to use Quidco and I'm choosing to give the money to charity!

If you dont agree with Quidco then use a different cash back website but lets all face it... Quidco ROCK!!
