Sales portals such as Rebuy or Flip4New buy almost everything, including high-quality electronics. However, they are middlemen who resell purchased products. It goes without saying that the purchase prices do not reflect the real value of a device. But if you want to go quickly and you don't want to make a lot of effort, such portals are a convenient solution.

In order to be able to compare the offers better, we compared the purchase price of the most popular versions of iPad 1 and iPad 2.

Attention: The prices change very frequently depending on supply and demand, so we have set a common point in time for all samples.

Apple also buys used iPads

Apple is also offering to buy back old iPads. On the page with the beautiful name "Computer reuse and recycling", customers can sell their old device back to the manufacturer.

Devices in very good condition achieved the following surrender value at the time of the test:

  • iPad 1 64 GB Wi-Fi + 3G: 196 euros
  • iPad 1 16 GB Wi-Fi: 133 euros
  • iPad 2 64 GB Wi-Fi + 3G: 330 euros
  • iPad 2 16 GB Wi-Fi: 232 euros

Tip: Ebay brings the most

The first port of call for private sales is Ebay. Our example iPads are offered and also sold on the auction portal for significantly higher prices during the same period. Less the Ebay fees (nine percent of the sales price). Examples:

  • iPad 2 16 GB Wi-Fi: 351 euros
  • iPad 2 64 GB Wi-Fi + 3G: 499 euros

Alternative Amazon

The world's largest online retailer also offers the option of selling used equipment. Marketplace is what Amazon calls this offer. Here you look for the device that you want to sell in the Amazon shop. In most cases there is a link on the product page that says "Sell this item".

Here you enter the condition of the device and set a sales price. Amazon takes care of the rest for you. Product description, payment and the further transaction will be taken out of your hands. All you have to do is ship the device when you buy it. Example of a device in very good condition:

  • iPad 2 64 GB Wi-Fi + 3G: 538 euros

But in the end you can determine how much the device is still worth to you. Amazon also keeps a fee of ten percent of the sales price.
