Why are Nexus One's selling on Ebay for $600+ when you can buy it from google for less?
8% Bing Cashback and no tax (usually).
From eBay: $600 - 8% cashback = $552.
From Google (NY for example): 529 + 8.75% tax = $575.29
Because customers who are in other countries that google wont ship the n1 to are willing to pay this higher cost.
So who wants to sell me the N1 on ebay and wrap it as a gift for 560$-580$?
Some of the prices on eBay are just mad..take a look at this price

What a joke
Im was hoping to get it on ebay cheap, but was shocked to see the prices there. Anyone think prices will go down on ebay? Things are usually cheaper than retail over there.
I was the same. Think I'm just gonna go for a droid/milestone anyway seeing as there isn't much difference in them!
Droid does not have native multi-touch, the Milestone has native multi-touch. Unless you're just gonna root it.
BTW, things on eBay are always usually more expensive, imo. There are tons of people out there trying to fool uninformed customers.
Ye, I was always going for the milestone, I've just got into the habit of saying droid/milestone cuz most people dont know what the latter is!
I'm not in any rush to buy it though, especially since an android 2.0 ROM is on the way for the Galaxy, so if I don't win this bid i'll just wait for the right one to appear.
Yeah not much chance of getting a new release phone cheaper on Ebay. All sorts of reasons for the high prices:
Ignorance to other availability.
Not available in your area.
Don't want to get locked in a contract.
Other ways to pay than CC.
I bought one from ebay.. sure I payed a bit extra but the price is about the same with what it will cost over here in Sweden anyway.
How much did you pay for it? Im hoping in the next few months the prices will go down because right now its a little too much for me.
I think we need a few more threads about this exact topic.
I just saw a post on Craigslist in Canada for 850 lolz.
One store in israel started to sell N1 for 1100$!!! Thieves!!
don't buy it,you're only encouraging those thieves.I say let them stuck with it.
At 600$ the seller will be losing money.
PP and Ebay double dip on fees. Youre looking at 45-60 $ on fees alone for a 600$ final bid.
Considering Ebay wont even allow you to say "money order" and PayPal holds your money for 21 days sellers are almost forced to jack up prices since the double dip is mandated.
So i can't except prices lower than 600$ on ebay?
Its possible but either...
a. they dont realize what the fees are going to be (if you havent been on ebay in awhile you wouldnt))
b. They received them in a state with no tax thus can price them lower.
c. Didnt like the phone and are content to just break even.
I really want N1 but i doesn't want to pay for it more than 650$ overall
search from Ebay the price from AU $510.00 to AU $999.00.
someone selling it on ebay for 550$ +free shipping worlwide, but he doesn't seems very trusthfull, especialy because he sell it's from india.
I purchased mine from eBay for $800au with FedEx shipping, I know I paid more than others but from Australia it's not easy get so it really didn't bother me paying extra. I just checked my tracking and it has landed in Australia so I should get it tomorrow..
