Apple behind refurbished goods on eBay

Apple Testing eBay Store for Refurbished Products

9to5 Mac:

We thought Apple might be testing the waters to sell refurbished products directly to customers through eBay, and it seems that’s exactly what is happening. We discovered that this is in fact an Apple-run Store within eBay. It is in trial, and it could open the door to much bigger things. No one would go on the record at eBay, however.

Weird but interesting.


I’ve been a big fan of getting refurbished Macs from the Apple store for some time. They work just as well as the full priced ones, you can get Applecare for them and I can save quite a bit.

Wonder why they are going through eBay rather than continuing to do it themselves?
