    I see a seller on eBay selling the Nexus 4 16G for $409.99, and selling quite a few.

    I don't understand why when they are $349 on Google play.

    What am I missing ?

    That 349 is before taxes, but you can still save a little more by going through google play though. In NYC tax is like $33.

    People are stupid?

    I guess someone in a country not serviced by google play might go the ebay route...

    I've wondered the same myself. Aside from international buyers who don't have access to Google Play, drug dealers probably buy them on eBay, or anybody else who prefers to stay under the radar. Less of a paper trail and maybe it is an easy way to launder $400 of dirty money.

    Google does not finance you. By going through other sites, you can get a nexus financed. For example, buying on Swappa I can go through "Bill me later'...a 0% interest Paypal thing. I cannot do that through the Play store.

    The Playstore would be smart to take Paypal.

    Nah, those kinds of people use Craigslist.

    Could be because people have a PayPal balance or eBay bucks to use towards the purchase.
