Tips for buying an iPad on eBay including knowing the top price you’re willing to pay, deciding which features are essential and looking for the best deal on shipping. Bargain shoppers can find good deals on iPads on eBay if they’re willing to take their time and look.
Holding yourself to a firm budget is a primary consideration. In order to decide how much you’re willing to spend, first you have to know what range of prices is available.
Once you have an idea of an average cost, start asking yourself what features you must have to use the iPad the way you want to. Although new iPads will be roughly equivalent, used ones in good condition can come with added perks and issues. Look carefully at warranties offered on used and refurbished products. For example, if updating a used iPad’s iOS to the most recent version voids the warranty, you’re wise to look at other listings.
Look for an eBay seller who offers a “Buy It Now” option that lets you pay for the item up front. Likewise, it’s worth the time to look for sellers who offer free shipping. Although you may pay a little more for the iPad, you make the difference up in time and convenience.
