The Good

  • Supporting a good cause
  • Large selection of unique items
  • Starting bids are low
By shopping and purchasing items on, 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 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, 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.

I have spent thousands on items from these sites and finally confirmed my suspicions that many of the auctions are rigged and they gauge the customers with their "handling and shipping fees". I was watching an auction the other day, it ended on JULY 16, 2020, for a Dior purse. I was going to bid on it. There were 12 BIDS on the purse. All of a sudden the auction ended and it now says there were O BIDS!!!! This is a lie as I was watching and planning on bidding. Also, they charge 3.00 and 4.00 HANDLING FEES and the shipping is way out there. Also, if you send emails asking questions, many times they don't answer you. I sent three email to the PA store and NEVER got a reply. The SOUTHERN, CA store is the one that took off the Dior bag and said there were NO BIDS.... The workers are rude and lazy. They expect you to spend a large sum of our hard earned money BUT don't ask for clear pictures and better descriptions because many times you won't get them. I am told, oh, we put it in a box and can't take it out now. Well you say you are saying a real Dior bag YET you don't take pictures of the inside or give a detailed description of the item....BUYER BEWARE,,,

Buyer beware! It’s definitely a treasure hunt which I enjoy. However, the shipping costs have gotten VERY overpriced. They also charge a handling fee on top of that. Seriously, they get the items for free. Total profit but gonna charge ya extra for packaging it up. Plus, now Shopgoodwill is charging sales tax even for out of state destinations. Won’t be shopping with them any longer. Farewell

HORRIBLE experience with this site! First, an ad for a pair of jeans stated 2 different sizes (one size in the title, one size in the description). I asked for clarification & they answered. But after I ordered & got the jeans, it was very obvious that their answer was WRONG! Worse, when the jeans arrived there was a HUGE HOLE in the butt of the jeans. The photos in the ad look like they folded the jeans to DELIBERATELY HIDE the hole. AWFUL!!!!

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.

I was high bidder on an auction that was posted to end at 7:03 pm . However Goodwill allowed and accepted a higher bid at 7:50 pm which is unfair. I contacted the seller and was told they had no answer for me but would send my question to their corporation. i have not received any response from them.

Terrible shipping, descriptions, and service. If you want to overpay for broken items to ship slowly, this is the place for you.
