Apple are selling refurb product on eBay

No primary category set

. Yes, the biggest consumer electronics company in the world has started to offer their refurbished products on

It’s been done very quietly, but set up their eBay account in October and for the past few weeks have been offering iPods, iPads and MacBooks on the worlds biggest marketplace. All products come with a full one-year warranty and have been returned to like-new condition with new batteries in iPods and iPads. They’ve received complete burn-in testing with the original OS re-installed and then been repackaged with manual and cable. Each product has a final quality inspection by Apple.

Although you won’t find anything specifically saying that it’s Apple selling the products on the item listings or eBay shop, they proudly proclaim “Apple Certified Refurbished Products” for the Manufacture Refurbished items and they’re being sold at the same prices as on the US Apple refurb product website. It appears to be a very low key trial which could lead to a bigger Apple offering on the site.

Apple have had their shop and listings designed by Frooition (nice win guys!) and they also appear to have been gifted the ad spot that usually appears below the seller information box. Instead of random adverts appearing, all I’ve seen has been is an “Apple Certified Refurbished Products” box.

If you’re based in the US and interested in buying an Apple refurbished iPod, iPad or MacBook then these products will be as good as new and considerably cheaper.
