@canonrumorsguy Does “maximum Adorama is paying” mean you get 100%, or 70%, of let’s say for instance the Canon EOS R trade in value of $1,000?

OR, go to fredmiranda.com and sell your gear for more $$. Fred Miranda is a site that supports photographers and related amateurs and professionals. I love it there!

If this post is not allowed, I am happy to remove it.

I suppose it depends on the condition of your equipment. $1,400 is actually a very good offer for a 5DIV in my opinion, given that Adorama is selling used bodies for $1, 700 and the street price for a new body from an authorized Canon dealer was $1,749 as recently as June.

While I prefer eBay, I know that many people don't like the hassle of handling the sale yourself. Having just sold a 1Dx II on eBay and having had two scammers try to rip me off (never happened before, btw) I am very appreciative of the protections that eBay offers and if you follow their rules, it's pretty hard to get scammed. I know some folks like Fred Miranda, but I would never sell anything of value on a forum or through Craig's list, without the kinds of protections available from eBay.

It's been over 24 hours since I sent them notice about wanting to trade in a 5DIV in excellent condition and they haven't responded.

Should I expect it to still take some time?

They usually write back within hours. I would email the trade in department again.

eBay has become full of scammers. So long as Adorama doesn’t say $1000 for EOS R trade in, but then tell me it’s 70% of $1000. They’ve done that to me in the past. I’d rather avoid the eBay hassle.

The last camera, and a drone, I sold both, got DM in eBay from clear scammers telling me they had won the listing and had just moved to please send to their new address. Naturally eBay said that can happen with high value items. Of course neither eBay username matched the actual winner. Glad I double checked and contacted both eBay and the real buyers. So that’s one scam.

And then there are the scammers who buy your item and then claim “not as described” and eBay gives them the money back but keep your item, or uses it for a month and then can return it.

Nothing is perfect. I get it.
