Now may be the best time to get a cheap iPhone on eBay. Since the iPhone came out, eBay sellers have struggled to sell the item at high profits on the online auction site, for a couple of reasons:
- The iPhone is still available at a lot of Apple retail stores.
- A flood of iPhone “scalpers” has made supply so high on eBay that it’s driven down the price and allowed for more cheap iPhone offers.
But Apple Stores are starting to run low on iPhones, and the first wave of eBay iPhone sellers — who were limited to just two iPhone purchases — is closing up shop.
That means it won’t be long before the US has a shortage on iPhones, and demand will surge and drive up prices.
So if you want to find a cheap iPhone (or at least a reasonably priced one) on eBay, you better get bidding soon.
