Make sure your iPad is ready for sale by restoring factory settings and removing any personal data from the internal hard drive. Use an external hard drive to back up photos, music, videos and other important data.
Once you have removed all data from the device, be sure to make it look as clean and like-new as possible if it is second hand. Remove any stickers and clean it with a screen wipe. Round up all of the iPad's accessories such as the power cable too (you can check the user guide to remind yourself which accessories were included in the original packaging).
Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to create your listing! You'll need to be as accurate with your item description as possible - buyers will appreciate your honesty. Typical iPad models can have 16GB memory, a quad core processor, 1.50GHz processor speed and not have a contract. These are all details which would make for a good description.
Make sure to take several photos of your iPad with a clear background, including some that depict damage or general wear if needed.
Search on eBay for similar listings. You'll be able to get a good idea of how much your iPad is likely to fetch.
If you have a specific price in mind for your iPad, you may want to choose the fixed-price listing option over an auction-style listing. You never know though: an auction listing could fetch more than your original estimate, so experiment with your listings and see which method is more successful.
Once you have provided the item description, you will see a recommended price, which can be a good indication of how much your iPad is worth.
Here are a few pointers for a successful sale:
Write a detailed and accurate item description.
Take clear photos of your item, its contents and original packaging.
Price your item competitively and offer free delivery if possible.
We know that safety is important to you when selling online. Automatic protection against high-risk buyers, seller protection with eBay Money Back Guarantee and our round-the-clock customer service team will help to ensure a smooth selling process.
