A few months ago, I bought 10 copies of Win XP with SP2 from a wholesaler for my business. With everybody switching to 7, it looks like I won't need them, and I really need to get my money back, so I'm selling them. As for can see from the pics, they are real OEM copies, you can see the COA in the upper left hand corner, and you will notice that the disc is a real XP disc. They are still in their shrink wrap. I am asking $600 for all 10, which is only a slight markup over what I paid. You can't get copies of XP anymore, so buy these while you can.

Posting a photo with a product key is a bad idea.

Definetly a bad dea. Espeially since if you zoom in you can read it. You may have to eat that one and change title to 9 copies for sale. Not that i would use it but someone else probably will.

:eek::eek: oops. Didn't realize it was visible. I of course didn't look at the post once I posted it. I didn't realize that the resolution on my camera was that good. Anyway, if somebody buys all 10 copies and that key turns out to be hacked, I'll refund you $60. :o

*sigh*...ok, $575 for the whole thing, with the possible bad product key noted.

The TechNibble community would never do something as evil as that...

I just used the key on a reinstall where the customer didn't have one. Thanks Byte! ;):p:D

LMAO:D

We're only messing. I hardly doubt anyone will use the key. If they did, that's pretty damn low of them.

:o:o Ok, I will sell all 10 copies for $550, or individual copies for $55 each. My original price was too high anyway, and at this price I'm barely making any money off what I originally paid. I just want my money back, that's all.

You should give E-Bay a shot. Sell them individually, but on the ad make a note that you have overstock. I had 9 of them a couple of months ago, and put up an ad for one single disc. In 2 days the other 8 were gone. A couple of people even bought 2-3 at a time. I had XP Pro OEM which is normally $139 , I sold them all around $115 so you won't have to drop your prices too much.

I went ahead and put them on Ebay. Let's see if they sell.

All 10 are XP Home. I put them on Ebay for $60/ea. I am not really willing to accept less than $600 for all 10.

eBay doesn't allow OEM software sales. I've tried before and they remove the listing. You might get away with it, but I doubt it.

I do not think that's true, they are just very strict in regards to guidelines when selling. I also had a listing removed, but it was because I used a stock photo of the OEM software and they wanted to verify it was not pirated. To avoid it I would try:

1. Making it very clear it is OEM software, and will be shipped with some sort of hardware (we all know this loophole, but you need to make the hardware part clear in the ad)

2. Take your own photo's and be sure to scramble the key (don't want anyone stealing your key). Also when you take the photo, put a piece of paper next to the package with your username to verify it is your photo (makes life easier)

Are you still trying to sell XP Home SP2 for $55 each?

Let me know, I may be interested in getting one.
