    They're still going for a decent amount on eBay. I am scared of the buyer scamming me though. Where are you selling iPad 3 at, for those of you selling it?

    Yes, eBay is a good place to sell it. It's probably the place that you'll still get the most for your money. I would recommend selling it as soon as possible, before the prices start to decline on it.

    I put it on Craigslist for $410 16GB WIFI.

    the higher offer I've gotten so far has been $340 but I'm going to let more people write to me or call. I'm sure I can get $370 for it.

    I've seen completed listings on eBay with people selling their used 16gb iPad 3rd generation wifi only for as high as $475.

    This is what I'm afraid of. I have the iPhone 5, so I would like to completely switch over to lightning connector, but don't want to have to pay a lot out of pocket if I sell my iPad 3.

    If you sell via eBay, and you include tracking with delivery confirmation with signature, you're automatically protected and will win any item not received (INR) cases if the buyer tries to scam you, as long as you have proof of delivery.

    INR cases are seldom. More often the buyer claims you sent them a "brick in a box" and eBay will ALWAYS side with the buyer. You're out the cash and the product and youll have a kick ass empty box to show for it.

    1st choice: Craiglist in person, preferably at a bank.
    2nd choice: MacRumors Marketplace
    3rd choice: Amazon Marketplace

    Last Resort for a high value item: Ebay.

    Dont put anything on ebay for sale you cannot afford to loose the cash on.

    (BTW I've been an ebay buyer and seller since 01, I no longer sell anymore)
