    Well probably more than there is with new gear--they have more control over what they pay for used gear than they do on new gear.

    and whether they want to buy it--more than new gear--of course if there is a local demand for used stuff--or they have a regular customer that favours that sort of gear--it makes them more likely to buy the used gear.

    Yeah, most stores will try to buy in and then double the price on a sale. That can be a lot of wiggle room if it is a pricier item

    I have heard of stores that go higher & ones that go lower--but that seems like a good average rule of thumb.
    Some stores will go higher if it's a trade though--as they move inventory.

    On high demand items they may pay out less so they can make more--or they may be willing to go higher as they know they will sell it & make some bucks.
    But if it is in low demand or they are not sure of demand they will probably go lower to hedge their bets--or decline to buy or trade it.
    And if they have a bunch in the back on on display--they probably won't even care to look at it...
