It's hard to say these days. Places like Staples and Best Buy have had regular sales on the 12.9 iPad Pro. I bought mine at Staples not too long ago, 128GB 12.9 iPP (WiFi only) for $799 new. The cellular model will be more difficult to sell... because not everyone wants cellular and won't want to pay extra for something that they won't use.

There are numerous factors that go into it, but my wild guess is $650-$700.

Well, I would like to have this iPad Pro if the price tag is 750 USD or lower.

Bought a 12.9 LTE on swappa three months ago for $715. Saw another at the time go for $630 if you deducted for the included keyboard. Resale just isn't as high as you would hope. Good for buyers though.

Disappointing to hear as an owner of one, but it makes sense as the pro is less consumer oriented and therefore has less demand.

I'd have bought it for this if I had seen it.

When you're dealing with 100,000+ sales, mistakes and angry customers are bound to happen. For a seller that big, that's still a good feedback score.
For a seller that big, it's absolutely horrible. We're talking 3000 upset people. That's not a few 'mistakes'.

At least this seller has a track record.
He sure does, a lousy one!

Over the past month, this seller has sold over 3000 devices. What happens is these sellers receive used phones, and then package and ship without checking the quality. Because of that, they have very little overhead and low acquisition costs, so they are able to sell devices for low prices. While occasionally there will be a broken device that gets sold, they offer returns for 30 days, and ebay has a money back guarantee. You are taking a 2.3% risk when purchasing from these sellers, but I've purchased many devices and never had a problem. They aren't sketchy people, just dealing with huge volumes and limited staff.

...They aren't sketchy people, just dealing with huge volumes and limited staff.
Pushing their quality control off onto the customer, and then not having the time, staff, or inclination to deal with the inevitable problems, is why they have such a low feedback rating. I would never buy anything from a seller like that, let alone a phone or tablet.

I sell around 100 things per year on eBay, and frankly it's not difficult to maintain a 100% feedback rating, but it takes time, some effort, and oh yes there will be losses.

You are trying to sell your ipad in a gloated market place. There are tablets of all sizes by many mfgs out there. Apple is not the only pony in town. If you really want to sell it you may well have to take a big loss on it. How much did you pay for it? Did you buy it new from Apple? Hope you sell it.
