I'm considering selling my Surface Pro 4. I've got the i7 model with 256GB storage and 16GB of RAM which currently retails for around £1,400.
eBay appears to be the best option as far as prices go. CEX only give you around £600 for it and prices go over £1,100 on eBay. GumTree doesn't seem to have the audience for it. The only real alternative appears to be AVForums.
I'm a little hesitant to use eBay because of scammers. Earlier this year I sold my Sony action camera via eBay and the buyer replied that it was damaged in delivery. It was well packaged so it was difficult to prove whether it was him or Royal Mail.
The whole experience highlighted the dangers of selling via eBay. You really do have few rights as a seller and if the buyer wants to rip you off it can be difficult to fight against it.
Whilst I am reluctant to sell on eBay, it does seem to be the place to get the best price.
Is there any way I can protect myself from scammers when selling something so expensive on eBay? Are there any options for restricting sales to buyers with a certain feedback score or something similar?
Any advice on this would be really helpful :)
