How to buy a PlayStation 5 in time for Valentine’s Day
Getting your hands on a PlayStation 5 in time for Valentine's Day may seem like a Herculean task, but these simple steps will give you the best chance.
The most reliable storefront you can use to try to acquire a PlayStation 5 in Australia is eBay. Bookmark this helpful lowest price link so you can repeatedly return and try to find a PS5 within your price range. Move quickly to ensure it can be delivered by 14 February.
Keep in mind there are 2 different versions of the PlayStation 5: the Standard Edition (sometimes called Disc Edition) is a traditional console, into which the user can insert physical game discs, and the other, cheaper version is the Digital Edition, which can only play digitally downloaded games. So, choose wisely.
Guide to using eBay
There are a number of ways to buy items on eBay. If you click Buy It Now, you simply pay the advertised price, check out and the product will be delivered. Simple.
Certain eBay listings have an extra button reading Make Offer. This allows you to inform the seller of the price you are willing to pay for an item. Upon seeing your offer, the seller can choose to either accept, reject or make a counter-offer.
If you end up in a lengthy process of offers and counter-offers, keep in mind you can only make a maximum of 3 offers for 1 listing.
Another way to buy on eBay is its famous auction system. If an item is available for bidding, there will be a button on the listing reading Place Bid. You can then enter into a manual bidding war with other buyers, but we recommend making use of eBay's automatic bidding system.
This allows you to simply set the highest price you are willing to pay for an item, while eBay takes care of the rest. Whenever a bid is placed, eBay will place a slightly higher bid on your behalf, until your upper limit has been reached.
If you plan on making use of eBay's bidding system, make sure you keep an eye on when the listing ends. If it's too far away, you won't be able to get your hands on the PlayStation before Valentine's Day rolls around.
