Has Anyone Actually Bought Ebay Invite?

    Has anyone successfully bought an invite on ebay? If OnePlus is giving 5 invites to everyone that purchased the device what stops the people from selling them? Seems to defeat the purpose of the invite system. Maybe giving each only 2-3 invites. Since I'm a late member my only chance is to win a contest. Right?.

    It doesn't really have any direct impact on the invite system. OP still controls how many are out there.

    I'm a penny pincher (one of my reasons for pursuing the One) so I'd rather wait, as painful as it seems.

    I might have a OnePlus One 64GB for sale as soon as I get my invites. I can probably ship as soon as my invites get delivered to my account..

    Who would be dumb enough to buy an invite from eBay? By the time you pay for the invite and buy the phone depending on which model you want you will have spent $400-$500 on a phone that only costs $300 or $350

    Boooooo. If there is no secondary market for invites then they would get sent to others. I guess people want new technology sooner and are willing to pay more

    invites to share will only last 24 hours. too short of a time to sell on ebay. invites that are on ebay are ones given to contest winners and early supporters. they have a longer life span and are not yet linked to an account. however, this is not something ebay can back. you arent shipped the invite so paypal cant track it and make sure it goes to you. if you buy an intangible good, its a stupid thing to do, and thats on you.

    You have to be an idiot to pay what some people are asking for invites . You might as well buy a flagship .
