Where can I sell my iPad?
iPads, like all other Apple products, are well-manufactured and very reliable electronic devices which can last a long time without any noticeable degradation in performance. This is why their value tends to hold well in the used market. Nevertheless, not all buyers offer competitive or even reasonable prices - even the shop around the corner which you’ve been going to for the past decade. So if you’re wondering “Where can I sell my iPad?”, then you needn’t look any further. We’ve compiled two lists below, trade-ins and cash sales, which will provide you with a few great options.

Trade-ins usually offer higher values for iPads since the deals usually involves purchases of new products or service which can compensate companies on any shortfall. As such, if you are planning on buying a new iPad or tablet, trade-ins is a great way to maximise the value of your iPad.
• O2 Recycle
O2 Recycle has an efficient and hassle-free system for trading in used tablets and smartphones. Deals can be practically completed within the same day. Just do a search of your version of iPad, and review the resulting offer. If it’s acceptable, send in your iPad by mail for free and get paid the same day O2 receives it. They even accept damaged units – even those not in working condition.
You have the option of doing the trade in either online or at one of CeX’s 350 stores around the country; the price is the same. You can get a higher price if you choose to be paid using store credit, which can be redeemed on purchases of new products in CeX’s stores.
Do your bit for the environment by doing a trade-in with Envirofone. The firm disposes second hand products they can’t sell in an ethical, environmentally-friendly manner. The rates offered by Envirofone are very competitive, and they will go 10% higher if you choose to be paid with Envirocash (which can be used on their online store).
(ii) Cash Sales
Cash sales offer a fast way to earn a little extra cash instantly. It’s perfect if you are not planning on getting a new iPad or mobile subscription.
• Facebook Marketplace
If you have a lot of friends on Facebook or social media, this is the way to go. Simply post your product (and picture) and set your price - and get your friends to share it. If someone wants to buy your iPad, they will contact you directly – there’s no middleman involved. However, in most cases, you will need to meet the customer to deliver the iPad and receive payment. So please use a lot of common sense to ensure your safety.
• Auction Sites
Auction sites like eBay are the perfect platform to list your product if it’s in demand. Just make sure your product stands out from the crowd. You can achieve this by using high quality photos and writing a comprehensive product description. Too often, items listed for sale on eBay lack basic product information which will turn off many potential buyers.
• Classified Sites
Classified sites such as Craigslist or Gumtree are tailored for people who are looking for very specific things at very specific prices. It is a good idea to list your product on these sites at a slightly higher price – you never know, someone might be on the lookout for an iPad just like yours.
