What is eBay Refurbished?
eBay Refurbished is a budget-friendly option on eBay to purchase quality used items at up to 50% off new prices. With smart, worry-free shopping at your fingertips, eBay Refurbished is an easy way to get items you want at a great price with a certified warranty that is as good as or better than what’s offered on brand-new products. You will also have the peace of mind of knowing that the items are repaired or reconditioned by vetted sellers or the actual manufacturer.
What is refurbished?
A refurbished product is one that has been expertly restored and tested by the manufacturer or qualified seller. Products are cleaned, repaired, and reconditioned to 100% functionality and then repackaged with new accessories. eBay offers the best value on the biggest selection of refurbished products from sellers you can trust.
Every product goes through extensive testing to make sure it meets the highest standards for each condition. Products are assigned a condition so you know exactly what you’re getting. You can choose from good condition, very good, excellent, and certified.
