The Good

  • Supporting a good cause
  • Large selection of unique items
  • Starting bids are low

By shopping and purchasing items on shopgoodwill.com, you are supporting a good cause. Like previously mentioned, proceeds will help Goodwill's network to help people overcome barriers to employment.

They have an extremely wide and large selection of products to bid on. Most of the items are rare and unique. Any item you purchase is bound to be one-of-a-kind.

Prices and starting bids tend to be lower than competitors because all items are donated and previously used/owned.

It is completely free to browse their site and bid on any of their items. There is no membership required.

They accept PayPal and most other popular payment options.

The Bad

  • Cannot list personal items
  • Most items are worn and used

You cannot list personal items on their site. So if you are looking to be a seller, this site is not for you. This is a big negative for many.

Most items are expected to worn and used; this may bother some consumers.

The Bottom Line

Shopgoodwill.com is a great place for consumers to browse rare and unique items and bid for free. They have a wide variety of products and although they may be one-of-a-kind, they still start at a reasonably low bidding price. By supporting shopgoodwill.com, you are supporting Goodwill Industries which is an excellent nonprofit organization. However, they do not allow consumers to personally sell items on their site. If you are looking to sell and auction off your own items, this auction site is not for you.

    Buyer Beware. Shop Good Will has gotten greedy. In many cases, starting prices have increased to retail value or a high reserve established. The total cost (after adding on handling charges and shipping costs) aren't competitive with other auction houses. Shop Good Will doesn’t disclose all issues but doesn’t accept returns. So yes, you might find something unique, but the odds are it’s in poor condition when you get it, you’re going to pay too much for it, and you'll have no option to return it.
