Is There a Secret Apple Store on eBay?
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) appears to have set up shop on eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) to sell its refurbished products in what may possibly be a holiday season experiment from the tech company. Simply called Refurbished Outlet, the storefront has been up for about a month and several of its aspects mimic Apple’s web store, according to the blog 9to5Mac, which made the discovery.

While neither Apple nor eBay has confirmed that this is an official store, prices for the refurbished items are the same as on the Apple Store and products come with the same features: a one-year warranty, new battery, original reinstalled operating system, and a manual and a cable. According to the store, all products have been inspected for quality by Apple. Currently, 25 items are up for sale in the store, including 15 iPads, six MacBooks, and four iPods.
According to 9to5Mac, the eBay store only charges taxes in a few states: California, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey, and Texas, and Washington, D.C.
