Why Wait? Get a Google Wave invite on eBay

September 30th, 2009 |


Ploked.com is all about being plugged into social media. We strive to provide informative, relevant, and unique perspectives in the world of social media.

With the much anticipated release of invites to 100,000 people eager to try Google Wave, many want in as soon as they can.  Currently there are a few ways to get your foot in the door of Google Wave.  Some of the ways are:

  1. Signing up previously for a Google Wave account on Google.
  2. You are a developer and have access to Google Wave to learn the ins and outs of the application.
  3. You get an “invite” from someone else who already has access to Google Wave.

So what are you to do if you are not getting in from any of the above listed methods?  Sure you could repeatedly hound your friends to send you an invite…but sooner or later you might appear as really desperate!

You Can Find Anything on eBay

It’s no secret by now, but for the most part you can bid and buy on nearly anything there is with eBay. So it should not be any surprise that there will be many people trying to capitalize on the Google Wave craze by selling off invites to people who have not found a way to get into Wave on their own.

Selling various Google invites is nothing new on eBay.  When Gmail first came out many people bought an invite on eBay from users who had Gmail invites to share.  The urgency of people wanting to get in Gmail early helped many people make some extra cash from selling off their Gmail invites.

There is no reason to believe that we won’t see the same mad dash to eBay to hunt down a Google Wave invite.  In fact, it would not be shocking to see some outrageous prices paid from people who will do anything to get access to a Google Wave account.

How much are you willing to pay for a Google Wave account? $10? $20? $50+?  Where do you draw the line on what to pay for an invite to Google Wave?  Guess it depends on how bad you want in and how soon you want to get into Google Wave.
