For a second time, Apple has opened a “Factory Outlet eBay Store,” where users can purchase certified refurbished Apple products at a heavily discounted price. 

The discovery was first made by AppleInsider who notes that the outlet store includes various Apple products that all come with one year of Apple’s warranty. Here is a list of some of the deals on eBay:

- 64GB White iPhone 5 (Factory Unlocked for GSM) for $499 ($350 off MSRP)

- 64GB Black iPhone 5 (Factory Unlocked for GSM) for $499 ($350 off MSRP)

- 32GB White iPhone 5 (Factory Unlocked for GSM) for $479 ($270 off MSRP)

- 32GB Black iPhone 5 (Factory Unlocked for GSM) for $479 ($270 off MSRP)

- 16GB White iPhone 5 (Factory Unlocked for GSM) for $449 ($200 off MSRP)

The first eBay outlet store was launched by Apple in 2012, however it only lasted a few months before it was taken down. 

All traces of that original storefront ultimately disappeared from eBay before the 2013 iPad launches. AppleInsider later learned that the effort was part of a 3-month pilot program that Apple chose not to renew. Thus far, this year’s store has only listed Apple Certified refurbished iPhone 5 models.

    Doesn’t look like it, aside from paying in USD.

    Other than they appear to be pretty much sold out. Only a 16gb 5 is showing now with limited stock.

    considering merchants in EU are today giving signs of negative influence by southern europe, ex-soviet union member states and russian federation immigrants ( among others such as africans, latin americans ) and without forgetting the merchants in the evergreen communist ireland, a apple outlet where to get goods sent to EU consumer market via pitney bows import/export taxes management, is very much appreciated. marc
