eBay has launched a new destination to feature officially “Certified Refurbished” products, direct from the world’s most popular brands.

The new program arrives in time for the holidays and offers shoppers savings of up to 50% off.

Demand for refurbished products has surged, and by securing exclusive rights to inventory sold directly from the most popular manufacturers, eBay is changing the way people shop this category.

eBay shoppers tend to focus on value, which has helped make these products so popular. With this new Certified Refurbished destination, we’re doing a better job of helping customers discover inventory sold direct from the brands they love and feel confident they will be blown away by the quality

Only brands that meet eBay’s Certified Refurbished criteria can qualify for the program. It requires an item to be in a pristine, like-new condition that has been professionally inspected, cleaned, and refurbished by the manufacturer – or a manufacturer-approved vendor. In addition, the item must be in new packaging with original or new accessories.

According to the survey, shoppers are more likely to gift and are more open to receiving refurbished electronics this year.

Only 32% have given a refurbished gift before, but this year, 60% would consider gifting refurbished electronics for someone on their holiday list.

We’ve reported that eBay has teamed up with Google Assistant to bring the voice control feature to eBay’s Android App.
