Most people know about eBay and how they are a great site for selling just about anything. Used Apple iPads included. For almost literally any item there is probably someone out there who is interested in it. As they say, one mans junk is another mans treasure. But whether or not you should use eBay to sell your iPad all depends on yourself and what options you may have available at your disposal.
We cover ideas and methods for buying used iPads and where to find used iPads for sale to buy. Saving you money on a refurbished or good condition but used iPad that works exactly the same as a new iPad only you are getting it slightly cheaper because of the usage it’s had. But for those who are thinking of selling their old iPad for whatever reason, eBay has been a great site for people to get a good amount for the type or version of iPad they may want to sell.
As said, it all depends on you and whether or not you can sell items on eBay. Most people can create an account and start selling immediately. But some people may already have established accounts and accumulated a good positive feedback score to give buyers added peace of mind when buying a used iPad online this way. Ideally a good feedback score will help you to achieve a better sale.
What matters is how you can take payment. Paypal is the normal and safe way to do so. It’s up to you if you want to take any other form of payment such as a cheque or postal order. You can normally specify this when you create your listing. And you can also choose which format of listing you want be it an Auction or set Buy It Now price.
The best thing to do is search on the site for the same spec iPad as yours and see the expired listings to see how much they sold for and what kind of listings were created. Also notice how the listings are created with enough details and all areas covered that prospective buyers will be looking for such as postage costs and whether you send recorded delivery etc. Again, you can add all this to the listing when you put up for sale your used iPad. Personally I find it best to create an auction that starts at just £1 and set a reserve price on the item as well. That way if no one bids to that amount it’s up to you if you want to sell the item at the last bid amount.
However if your iPad is in good condition and you create a good listing (Auction or BIN) then there is no reason why you wont get a decent amount for your iPad. Many are sold on eBay on a daily basis and people are paying top money for them provided they’re in good condition and you have all the box etc with it.
So yes, if you can’t sell it any other way and have an eBay account then go for it.
