I'm looking to sell my AW1. Where can I get the best price for it. And I've tried on Facebook Marketplace but I want to avoid that at all costs, since most of the people on there are either fake or bots. I never had success with selling anything on there.

Avoid eBay, way too much fraud with Apple products on that site. Swappa more ‘tech oriented’ and localized with those who have a lengthy selling history with tech products like Apple. Otherwise if you sell locally, it’s cash in hand, just meet at a public location.

Yeah I don't really like ebay for selling. It's not straightforward and I don't like it's fees. I have sold a lot of stuff and had most success off of craigslist though. I will check out swappa. Not sure if that'll work well for me since I am new and don't have any reviews or feedback for people to trust me as a seller.

If you’re a new seller, make sure you include lots of photos, be very descriptive and if you have any potential buyers asking questions, be as responsive as you can in a timely manner. Those are all helpful things being a new seller on any used website.

Why not go back to Craig’s List to sell. I quit using eBay on any electronics, especially Apple. You will get a few tire kickers but I have always figured out who was serious and sold for cash with NO FEES!

I sold my Series 1 locally for $75, and the Series 2 for $125. Both slightly below eBay, but didn't have to deal with the hassle of shipping and potential fraud issues with the buyer.
