paypal allows buyers to return your phone up to 180 days later and almost always sides with the buyer. Be careful!

We're increasing the time for buyers to file a merchandise dispute (Item Not Received and Significantly Not as Described) from 45 days to 180 days. All references in the User Agreement to "Opening a Dispute within 45 days" have been updated to reflect "Opening a Dispute within 180 days." The Sections these changes appear include the Introduction, 3.15, 13.2 and 13.5

The Fine Print

The trending price is average price calculated on final sale prices for items sold in auction-style and fixed price formats in new and used condition over a 14-day period ending October 20, 2015, for non-professional sellers only. Shipping and handling costs not included in calculation. Because this is an average price, the actual price may vary. No representation is made that any item will sell at a particular price, nor is any claim made that eBay will result in the highest average selling price in every category on the site.

What is the Promotion?
Sellers can create a Qualifying Listing in an auction-style format. eBay will provide the seller with a guaranteed price for a qualifying cell phone, as updated in the listing flow and determined in eBay's sole discretion ("Guaranteed Price"). To be eligible to receive the Guaranteed Price, the seller must accept the recommended starting price, format and duration provided by eBay upon listing ("eBay Recommendation"). The seller is not required to accept the eBay Recommendation to complete his/her listing, but sellers that do not accept the eBay Recommendation will not be eligible to participate in the Promotion. The starting price of each Qualifying Listing must not exceed the Guaranteed Price throughout the duration of the listing. The "Buy It Now" feature, fixed price format listing and selection of a reserve price on listings are prohibited; listings with these selections are disqualified from the Promotion. No guarantee is made that any item will sell. Sale of a cell phone is a condition precedent of the Guaranteed Price and the Promotion. If the seller creates a Qualifying Listing and his/her cell phone sells, but at a price that is less than the Guaranteed Price at the time of listing creation, then seller will receive an eBay Coupon equal to the Guaranteed Price less the price at which the cell phone sold. The selling price shall be deemed to be exclusive of any sales tax, duties, shipping costs, and eBay fees that might be applicable. Coupons will be fulfilled approximately one (1) to (2) business days from receipt of payment on the Qualifying Listing from the buyer, as applicable, and must be redeemed by the seller within thirty (30) days of receipt of Coupon.

Only 7-day listing durations in an auction-style are included in this Guaranteed Price promotion ("Promotion") (but may be subject to the listing upgrade fee). 1-, 3-, 5-, and 10-day listing durations, as well as any fixed price format listing durations, are excluded from this Promotion. The Promotion does not apply to insertion fees, final value fees, or optional upgrade fees. Final value fees will be applied to the total amount of the sale, including the cost of the item, shipping, and any other fees a seller may charge—excluding any sales tax. Fees for optional listing upgrades apply. The item must sell within the initial listing time period. Re-Lists and Private Listings are not eligible for this Promotion.

Sellers must follow all on screen directions to create their qualifying cell phone listing ("Qualifying Listing") on the US site at by either clicking the sell link in the Promotion materials, using the eBay mobile web or mobile application, using the Quick Listing Tool sell feature. Note that use of the "Sell It For You"/ eBay Valet features will not result in a Qualifying Listing. Please also note that the Promotion may not be shown during the listing process.

To be included in the Promotion, a Qualifying Listing must be a bona fide listing that includes: (a) a correct title that accurately reflects the cell phone being sold; (b) an accurate photograph of the cell phone being sold; (c) an accurate description of the condition of the phone; (d) shipping costs that are the lesser of $15 or the average, usual, and/or customary range for similar or identical cell phones. Cell phones that are stolen, activation locked, or otherwise unusable may not be included in the Promotion. Without limiting the foregoing, all elements of the Qualifying Listing must be truthful and accurate, and must not contain any words, messages, images, icons, or statements that have the effect of asking buyers to avoid buying the listed item (i.e., stating 'Do Not Bid' in the listing description) or informing the buyer that the actual item is not as described in the title and photograph. Listings that contain any of the foregoing will be disqualified from the Promotion.

All existing selling limits on your account (as well as category and item limits) still apply, and may prevent you from participating in the Promotion. The Promotion can be applied in addition to any applicable monthly insertion fee promotion, and/or any other insertion fee promotion; however, the Promotion cannot be combined with any other promotions or offers.

Who's eligible?
This Promotion is available to sellers who (i) are registered and in good standing on and (ii) meet eBay's minimum seller performance standards. Please sign in to My eBay and view your Seller Dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards. If you have received fewer than 5 detailed seller ratings from buyers, this information will not appear in My eBay; however, you will receive email notification if your account falls below the minimum performance standards.

When is it?
This Promotion will begin on October 22, 2015 at 00:00:01 PT (12:00AM plus one second), and will end on January 31, 2016 at 23:59:59 PT (11:59PM plus 59 seconds) for listings on (the "Promotion Period"). eBay reserves the right to make changes to the Promotion Period at any time at its sole discretion.

Actually not too bad! It's saying $416 for my VZW gold S6. Considering this is a guaranteed price, I may do it.

If they gave money for the difference, I'd be all in. Since they don't, I don't care. I'd better use fixed price and get exactly what I want whenever it sells.

Haha, looks like they see the VZW G4 market as over-saturated and aren't giving an instant price..

A weak attempt to curb increasing numbers of sellers moving towards local sales. I can get as much or more selling certain items locally, and have the added benefit of keeping money out of Ebay's greedy hands.

* If Ebay had any sense of economics and supply elasticity, they'd realize they could increase revenue by lowering final value fees in certain segments (I.E. phones). If they only had, say, 5%-7% final value fees in phones, I'd sell on Ebay...I'd make more, and they'd make something, rather than us both losing. Facepalm

* * On a somewhat related note...calling ebay customer care is tantamount to masochism.

Not bad at all. Getting $343 for my Verizon iPhone 6 that I previously bought for $320 off of eBay. Might have to consider selling it because I really miss Android.

No it's in their database ("can't find your carrier"), but it just isn't giving an instant buy value for it.

Were those Nokias 635 Unlocked? I have 3 but not really sure if they are unlocked I thought they were GoPhones, basically still tied to AT&T
