appleebay.pngА mysterious Apple refurbished store appeared on eBay about a month ago and has been hiding in plain sight ever since. Labeled only “Refurbished Outlet” with hidden corporate information and nothing in the way of contact information or a traceable backend, the store gets impressive 99.7-percent positive reviews from buyers. But, there is no information on where devices are coming from.

We thought Apple might be testing the waters to sell refurbished products directly to customers through eBay, and it seems that’s exactly what is happening. We discovered that this is in fact an Apple-run Store within eBay. It is in trial, and it could open the door to much bigger things. No one would go on the record at eBay, however.

Aside from the image fonts above, which are an uncharacteristic wreck, there are many telltale signs of Apple’s direct involvement. Just like Apple’s own refurbished products, the “refurbished outlet” products all have the following:

             Full one-year warranty

             Returned to like-new condition

             iPads/iPods include a new battery

             Received complete burn-in testing

             Original OS re-installed

             Repackaged with manual and cable

             Final quality inspection by Apple

The prices on the products are also identical to the Apple Store’s refurbished prices across the board (below)
