Hey guys, looking at getting a Nexus 5 and wondering why most of the Ebay prices I've seen are much HIGHER than the Google Play store? Considering Google Play has them in stock.... What's up with these ridiculous prices?

People are stupid?

You don't want to deal with UPS as your order fulfillment provider because they can't seem to manage to not screw up your order and fail to deliver your device in a timely manner?

You pick.

I just assumed that most people would check Google before going straight to Ebay and paying (in some cases) over $100 more. About to order one from Google Play right now..

When the Nexus 5's were first being sold, when it was sold out on the play store, people put them up on Ebay with a ridiculous mark-up.

This phone sells $800+ outside usa like in brazil or other places that cannot buy from playstore. No price is ridiculous as long as there is somebody willing to pay what you ask.
