eBay has long been a go to place to sell off old gadgets, but up until last week that required waiting for a winning bid and sometimes a longer wait for buyers to pay. With the launch of eBay Instant, that's all changed. eBay Instant is a new way to sell your old gadgets without waiting for a buyer since eBay is buying the goods directly.

eBay Instant is being pitched as a green way to dispose of your old gadgets and electronics, much like you have been able to do with Gazelle and many other sites for some time. eBay Instant purchases laptops, phones, tablets, PDAs, digital cameras, MP3 players, camcorders and GPS Systems. Unlike selling your item on eBay, the whole process is, well, instant. And the sale includes a free shipping label.
