    Another ebay used items sells for more than brand new! 17th May 18 at 11:08 AM
    I was watching this, thought I may be able to pick up a bargain, but the finish price for this was beyond belief. People just aren't doing their research.


    Total of 183.50 for this (including delivery): izettle ebay link



    When you can buy 2 brand new kits for 70 each with one brand new reader alone for 46.95



    Ok a few quid more expensive now (they were selling this for 60 for the dock and reader a few days ago when I checked prices).


    But still it's brand new, comes with all the original bits and accessories and has 2 years manufacturers warranty.


    This used bit of kit is not worth what it closed for. I have a business that supplies festivals and I pick up these used iZettle readers for 25-30 each (dock rarely gets out up for sale so that's why I wanted it).



    Why don't people do their research and figure out their highest bid before going gun ho towards the end of the auction.

    People get carried away and think they are in a competion with other bidders.

    I sometimes buy dolls house miniatures from e-bay. I know how much they would go for new, and know how much I am willing to bid, which could be a little over the new price for something that is no longer on sale.

    However, for example, I've seen 20 items which are still available go for 3 or 4 times the new price!
