Prices Higher for Used iPads for Sale
In fact when iPad was first released people were selling it at almost double the price than what the RRP price was! And people are still selling iPads at higher prices than independent retailers and authorized resellers. In most cases because of what the iPads spec is and what it’s being sold with. For instance unlocked iPads or iPads that have been unlocked and jail broken (a term that involves bypassing some restrictions on the iPad) can go for much more than standard iPads that come as they are or locked to a certain network.
Even many used iPads for sale on eBay are going for higher prices than brand new iPads sold by Apple.com because of all the Apps they have pre-loaded onto them. How they’re already set up, unlocked, jailbroken and maybe even has an iPad case or iPad bag and other accessories with it. All together adding more value to that iPad deal if placed on auction on eBay. People love this kind of thing and that’s why they do.
So consider these things if you are considering selling and think of them if you want to buy like this. Be aware of other sellers selling the same type of iPad as you. Look at there listings and see how they’re selling theirs. Have they put much effort into the listing? Has it been unlocked or jailbroken? What extras or accessories does it have? Does it all look legit? Does the seller have a good positive feedback ratio? Watch the same spec iPads as yours and see the prices they sell for when bidding has finished or the listing has ended. Note what time they usually end.
Ask questions to other sellers as if you’re a buyer. Be prepared for these as a seller as well and always be polite even on dumb questions. And as a seller ask questions about your buyers or winning bidders if needs be. Demand immediate payment by Paypal and always get proof of postage for items like this, send by recorded mail and never standard class delivery for your own protection you’re insured for loss through the mail.
