    That's 2.5% of all their transactions for the month. The seller historically runs 98% so I don't see reason to worry.

    I'd consider it but I only want the space gray version which is sold out.

    It says New sealed, if you get it and the shrink wrap is gone, then I'd return it and get you money back for Item not as described..This is pretty tempting, I might pick this up or Get one from T-mobile with Jump on Demand.

    I was reading the negative comments and if it were me looking to buy the iPad Pro, I'd pass on this deal.

    Not worth the risk and hassle, while eBay does do a good job at protecting the buyer, its just not worth taking a chance and dealing with the issues of requesting a refund.

    I go by the old adage, if its too good to be true, then it probably is, and in this case I believe that is so.

    I stopped buying stuff on ebay a long time ago, well anything of value. Under $50 that I can afford to lose, ok. Big ticket items no way; between ebay and paypal they dont care about the buyer. Ebay just has a horrible reputation overall.

    Better off going to Swappa or some reputable site that will enforce the rules. But even then I am leery about buying high dollar items to save $100-200 vs brand new on Amazon or the store where you know what you're getting.

    I agree. Maybe I'm old fashioned or whatever but larger ticket items like TVs and stuff I purchase in person or through stores I completely trust. A few hundred isn't enough for such a gamble. Hassle, worry, and no post sale support are NOT worth a few hundred bucks to me. Just not.

    Yeah, I'd pay the extra $90 to get the iPP through B&H.

    Totally false. as a buyer you have all the power and can return for whatever reason within 45 days. I sell on ebay and im a'ways concerned until 45 days have passed and i know the item cant be returned.

    Costco sells the 128 for $878.99 on line (space gray and silver are in stock) and a model with the pencil and keyboard for $1129.99. Standard UPS ground shipping included with a 7-10 day delivery. The space gray is in stores.

    Thanks for the heads up. That's a great deal. Cheapest I've seen the iPad Pro and you save $19 on the pencil/keyboard combo.

    False, UNLESS the items is not as described; which is incredibly tough to prove. Such a situation where someone says "lightly used" what exactly constitutes "lightly" used. Most of the time its nearly impossible to convey every defect through a camera.

    This is not the case here as the item OP links is allegedly brand new.

    You can ELECT to take returns or not. Whatever you as seller dictate is your policy. Buyer remorse is not something Ebay protects

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/return-policy.html

    Important: Even if you specify "no returns accepted," under the eBay Money Back Guarantee the buyer can still return an item if it doesn't match the listing description.

    How is it tough to prove? As a Top Rated eBay seller I've had this happen with perfectly working and described items and there is NOTHING I can do as a seller to avoid the return. It's absolutely up to the buyer who purposely chooses Item not as described to avoid paying return shipping or restocking fee. Your only option is to accept the return (and pay for return shipping) and give a refund.

    With this eBay sale if the seller says the item is New sealed and you receive an IPP that's been taken out of the shrink wrap that would be item not as described. Not Buyers remorse.

    On eBay the buyer has all the control, I'm sorry but your wrong here. It's completely up to the seller to provide quality items properly described and customer service.

    You're paying $880 for the 128GB Wifi, not Cellular. It's still not as good a deal as the 128GB cellular for $10 more.

    Yeah, I had that letdown when I finally realized it wasn't an LTE model. I just assumed it was based on the thread title.

    It would pay to do a little homework before you push the buy button. Even though the seller still have a good average, I would not deal with them. You a protected by eBay but who wants to go through that mess.

    All the buyer has to claim is item not as described. eBay does not see the time so they can't a prove it one way or the other. PayPal will suck the money out of the sellers account without even hearing your side of the story. It happened to me. Clearly you have not sold much on eBay. We all know we are at the mercy of the buyer for 45 days.

    I read through his negs and they were all from some used iphone that listed it was used and had normal wear. This is a new sealed machine. After I get permission from the wife (yes permission..lol) I will get one, it's gonna be for our son when we drive down to disneyland.

    I did look at his negs and they were all about a phone that was used and stated it was, so imo it seemed legit, but I missed the deal :(
