ipadIf you are in the US, you can buy the iPad right now from any of the Apple or Best Buy stores in the country. For everyone else, there’s eBay.

While Apple is not “officially” shipping the iPad to international (non-US) addresses, there are lot of people in the US who managed to get the iPad on day zero and they have now put their units up for sale on eBay at a premium, of course.

Apple iPad on eBay with International Shipping

The average price of a 16 GB iPad model on eBay is around $650 (plus international shipping charges) while the 64 GB version of the iPad is going under the hammer for around $900. That’s like a $200 premium on the list price plus you will be responsible for shipping costs and custom duties, if any.

One of the eBay listings for a 16 GB iPad (that ships worldwide) has received over 24 bids and that does indicate the excitement around the device in international markets where Apple is yet to introduce the device.

eBay has also setup a microsite at ipad.ebay.com where you can quickly find all the Apple iPad related listing without having to search the regular eBay marketplace. Some of the listed sellers are “power sellers” with a very high reputation so it’s fairly safe to buy from them as long as you don’t mind paying the heavy premium.
