Selling Your iPad for the Best Price

March 10, 2020 - Electronics

Need to sell your iPad for the best price possible?

We’ve put together a list of the top three online marketplaces for selling your iPad at competitive prices, along with the available minimum and maximum offers for 2020.

Why did we do this? Well, for starters, we know it can be overwhelming to compare prices for iPads on all the online marketplaces out there. On top of that, some stores offer cash and some only offer gift cards in exchange for your iPad. In the midst of offer-searching, that is an important but easy detail to miss.

Taking all of that into account, it’s easy to see how selling your iPad for the best price could quickly become a part-time job.

Since time is money—and we want to save you time—we compiled a list of the 2020 going offers for used iPads from each major online marketplace that offer cash. After all, it’s difficult enough to part ways with such a high-ticket item. It’s even harder to imagine selling your iPad for anything but the best price you can get.

Whether you’re selling an iPad Mini, iPad Air or iPad Pro, this list of marketplaces for selling your iPad will equip you with the knowledge you need to be a savvy seller and receive the most cash possible.

Back to the list. The lowest values in the price ranges below represent the least in-demand iPads (oldest generation, broken, Wi-Fi-only, not unlocked) and the highest values in each range represent the most in-demand iPads (new, WiFi & Network-Ready, largest memory, unlocked).

The marketplaces below are in order for the best overall offers on all types and conditions of iPads, as well as overall ease-of-transaction.

Keep in mind the prices in the ranges below vary greatly depending upon the various traits of your specific iPad (e.g. storage).

3. eBay

eBay has a tool that gives you estimated prices you could likely sell your iPad for on its auction-style marketplace. You can receive offers for broken iPads if you find a buyer looking to purchase it for parts or repair. You can also list your iPad for bids or give buyers a chance to “Buy It Now” at a set price. Keep in mind the max prices below are “best scenario” prices. Prices at the end of the price range are for brand new, unopened items.

eBay iPad Offers

Regular iPads: $0-196

iPad Minis: $0-391

iPad Air: $0-600

iPad Pro: Estimated offer not available (you can still list it)

Alternative Places to Sell Your iPad for the Best Price

Apple, Amazon, Walmart and Target were left off the list because their trade-in programs don’t pay cash. If you give your iPad to them, you will receive a gift card to purchase another item from their stores instead of cash. Additionally, while Craigslist is a viable marketplace for selling your iPad, it does not appear on this list due to unclear information on the variances in iPad features within the listings.

If you are using Craigslist to sell your iPad to an individual person, avoid being scammed by meeting your buyer in person for cash and never send your iPad by mail. You may never see the buyer’s cash.

In the meantime, list your iPad for sale on PawnGuru and start receiving offers today from pawn shops in your local area.
