How to Sell Used iPad Online

Are you looking to sell an iPad online? These tips from the Gizmogo team will help.

What To Do Before Selling iPad

It’s time to get your iPad ready to sell. Here’s some key areas to focus on.

Protect Privacy

iPads can, quite literally, have your life info on them, and Apple is not the best at making de-linking services intuitive. So it’s really important you take this seriously. Don’t forget to unlink your iCloud services, remove all sims and memory devices, and perform a full factory reset.


Assess Condition

Take note of any scratches, cracks, and chips on the device. Be honest. Provided the device works, it will still sell, and you won’t have an angry buyer accusing you of fraud for non-disclosure.

Find Original Packaging & Accessories

If you happen to have any of the original accessories or packaging, it can greatly increase the sales price. People like to feel their new second-hand device is as close to mint condition as possible. While it won’t stop you from selling the iPad without them, it can help leverage better pricing.

Take Photos

Good photos (and clean gadgets) make for good sales. Take pictures of, at a minimum, the front, back, and sides of the device. It’s also a good idea to photograph any special features or damage you identify in the listing. Keep them crisp and clear.

Decide Where To Sell Your iPad

Now you know how to sell an iPad, it’s time to look at where to sell an iPad. You have two basic choices, both of which can start online. One, however, will eventually require an in-person meetup to exchange the goods, which can be problematic for some people. Let’s take a look at both methods.

Sell iPad In-Person

In-person sales are often initiated online through marketplaces, listing sites, and auction sites. You will list the iPad, and potential buyers will come to you. It can be a lucrative way to sell items, but it can also be a frustrating process. Be prepared for questions and requests. Some of these are reasonable, while others may leave you scratching your head- like, “Photos?” when you’ve already provided them. It’s also possible, for desired electronics like iPads, that you will get people trying to beg and barter your price down, so be firm. Once you have found a buyer, you will need to meet in-person to do the exchange. We advise only ever taking cash, as other methods can lead to fraud. Remember that it’s very common for people to ‘forget’ to bring $20, $50, or even $100 of the agreed price as a way to scam you, so don’t fall for it. And always choose a safe, neutral spot away from your home.

Sell iPad Online

If you want to sell an iPad fast, you may want to instead look at a second-hand electronic dealer online. It’s a faster and fuss-free way to get rid of your old electronic items. Instead of dealing directly with any end consumer, you send the shop the specs, receive a quote, and once it’s accepted you get paid.
