    So, as I previously mentioned I sold my iPad on ebay for $375. I'll be paying paypal and ebay fees. My pastor's wife said she wanted it and I am left with a conundrum. Is there a way to get out of an ebay sale after selling. Like refunding the money and saying I dropped it? I don't want to do anything to ruin my 100% rating as I plan on futures sales.

    You committed to the ebay sale, and I'd go with that and explain to your pastor's wife someone already purchased it.

    If you back out of the sale, the odds are good you'll get some negative feedback and not to sound harsh, you'd deserve that as the buyer is acting in good faith (AFAIK)

    You can't be serious you want to lie to the ebay buyer so you can sell it to the Pastors wife?
    Tell her it sold on ebay, all over red rover. Close thread. Then get some counselling from the Pastor.

    ROFLMAO


    Irony is a mean bitch....

    Meanwhile, I am trying to figure out what the title of this has to do with selling/not selling on ebay?

    Thanks for the constructive advice. I will follow that and continue the ebay sale.

    AFAIK, even if you go ahead with that idea, you still have to pay the $37.50 eBay fee.

    This has always been an interesting debate as really, there is no one answer. I'd suggest it is akin to a pair of iPads- one offering the ability to download music onto it and the other one simply does not.

    There would be those in the camp of, "I don't rarely ever listen to music on my iPad so I purchased the one that is less expensive, not offering that ability."

    Another camp: "I listen to music a lot and even when I don't I enjoy the freedom of being able to do so on a whim and thus spent the extra and bought an iPad that is equipped to allow me to do so."

    It all boils down to your needs/wants/desires/affordability factor.
    (And the GPS capabilities, as expressed in another thread, is an added bonus.)

    7 separate threads for selling 1 ipad? Really?

    When should I sell it?
    Can I sell it here?
    What if it doesn't sell?
    Why won't it sell?
    Can't sell it.

    And now,

    Can I unsell it?

    Amazing.

    And I'm pretty amazed it's only 7-I would have guessed 3-4x that many.

    Or maybe I'm thinking of "I did it-ordered an iPad Air/Mini!"

    I would contact the buyer and tell him your situation. Indicate that you fully intend on honoring the sale, but would he be willing to back out of the sale since a friend has said they'd like to buy the device. If he's willing, you will not pay any fees on eBay. You'll cancel the transaction through the site and he will agree to the cancellation. It's ALWAYS worth telling the truth.

    True, but I had it for sale on eBay and someone bought it so I felt the honorable thing to do would be to let the sale go through.

    You did not read the previous posters suggestion. He said to ASK if the buyer would cancel. But he left open that you would still honor the sale if they buyer did not want to back. Nothing "not honorable" about that idea.
