Ebay Restricting Sales on LG Nexus 4

LG Nexus 4

Looking to get your hands on the new LG Nexus 4 through Ebay, or even sell one yourself? Responding to the recent door busting sales of the phone, Ebay is attempting to prevent fraudulent sales by restricting the number of units everyone but Authorized Resellers can list.

The message to sellers reads:


The launch of the Google Nexus 4 is underway, so now’s a great time to list these highly anticipated devices. Follow these guidelines for listing the Google Nexus 4 and take advantage of strong buyer demand.Google Nexus 4 Product Post-Launch Sales You may list a Google Nexus 4 with some limitations:

  • Authorized resellers will be allowed to list an unlimited number of items per week.
  • eBay Top Rated Sellers will be allowed to list up to 8 items per week.
  • All sellers meeting minimum performance standards will be allowed to list 4 items per week.
  • New sellers who’ve confirmed their personal information may list 1 item per week.

Note: Sellers not meeting minimum performance standards or that haven’t confirmed their personal information will not be allowed to list the Google Nexus 4 during the post-launch sale period.

So what does all this mean?  Basically that Ebay stocks of the LG Nexus 4 might be somewhat limited and selling the device might be harder for newer Ebay users. Of course you could always just wait the 8-9 week shipping time for the Nexus 4 through Google Play, which is probably going to be the most affordable route. If you want it now? Ebay might be a good source, but expect to pay quite a bit more as well.

  1. Anonymous Nexus 4 Owner

    I think that it’s sad that I already have this phone, yet a lot of potential owners are upset and torn about the lack of supply for this phone.

  2. This is dumb, you aren’t allowed to sell something you own any more on Ebay? Why don’t they restrict everything then?

    • there are restrictions in place to prevent illegal activity and price gouging.. and for the record, you aren’t allowed to sell anything you own on eBay, ask the person who tried to sell his kidney

  3. 8-9 week delivery date, doesn’t seem like the phone is in stock.
