    Hey guys, planning to post online somewhere some spare consoles I have for sale. All of them have (as of typing) the latest version of B9S and each come with about 30 games installed on a 64 GB Sandisk Extreme sd (regular/micro for the corresponding consoles) card each. They are in pretty much brand new condition with almost no usage time except for installing Luma CFW.

    The list of consoles I'm looking to sell as follows:

    Blue o2DS
    Blue o3DS XL
    Black n3DS
    Hyrule Edition n3DS XL

    I'd like to know their worth in AUD preferably.

    Also, could anyone tell me the best way to remove existing data from these consoles? Like a reformat. Curious because of existing Mii and other possible data on the consoles. Just to make it easier for the buyers. Something like a complete reformat and having the key homebrew such as FBI and Luma Updater installed.

    Would this be a manual process where I reformat the system then manually go through the h&s app injection to get FBI/Luma Updater back on?

    You shouldn't be selling pirated games, and shouldn't expect the value to be any higher than that of a console without the pirated games.

    Fair enough, easily fixed, though still planning to sell with the sd cards as I have no need for them. Same situation as in they are essentially brand new as well.

    Failed to consider the fact about piracy because these were from my personal dumps, forgot to take into account that this changes once sold...

    Option 1 (leaves only FBI)
    Inject into H&S, factory reset (incorrectly called "formatting" by Nintendo), format SD, copy cfw back if you haven't set up boot-from-ctrnand
    (all ctrnand apps will actually stay, so you could add DevMenu and some friends too)

    Option 2 (any title you want)
    Factory reset, generic setup (plain username and no networks), format SD, inject FBI if you removed it from H&S, and install any titles

    The buyer is the one that ultimately chooses the price, through the concept of the free market
    Therefore it makes sense to set up an auction with a sufficiently low starting price and see how it evolves!

    Step 1. Go search for the console on ebay
    Step 2. Tick the sold listings option
    Step 3. Look at the average prices for consoles in similar condition with similar accessories

    Step 4: minus 20% for a face-to-face sale (because of the eBay plus PayPal fees double dipping) and 15% for a PayPal sale (because PayPal will take a little bit of fees as well)

    Well I'm not against people selling for eBay selling price, the going rate is the going rate no matter who gets a cut, but it's always a smart idea to try undercut the competition, but also unless it's vastly different in the US it's not 20%+15% fees then postage on top (I doubt anyone would be willing to pay that lol)

    Usually when selling on eBay factoring in postage/paypal/eBay fees for a sale of around £100 you loose about £20 in fees and postage (so about 20% all in) , so usually if I'm trying to sell locally off eBay I aim to get around £80-90 that way I get more by selling locally and the buyer saves a bit by buying locally too

    Although it is common for people to think "well if it's not on eBay I should only be paying 10% of the price as you know dem fees be more than the item sells for anyways so you should be glad I'm offering £1.50 for a new switch as your dodging fees" :rolleyes:

    tbh it's that mentality that has made me avoid selling off eBay, as much as I dislike the fees and think they are a bit steep, people off eBay expect stuff for such low prices that it's easier to just sell on eBay and not have to deal with the "well you are not paying eBay fees so how about 70% off?"
