Ebay was selling one for a few dollars in working condition, you are better off buying a used one or a none working one making sure the battery door is good. You can replace the battery door but it will require you to take the front and rear cover of the camera off. You will have to take off the little screws all around the camera and the pry apart the front and rear case.
Sometimes you can use a pair of small needle nose pliers and just squeeze the ends of the plastic battery door inwards from the hinge and the battery cover should pop out. To install the new battery door you do the same, squeeze the plastic axle and push it into the cameras case.
If you're handy, you can replace it in about 3 minutes. Don't attempt it unless you're willing to risk tearing a thin flexible circuit under the rear cover. Looking at the camera from the rear, remove the screws on the right hand side ( 2 ? ) then the screws across the bottom - open the card door, remove the card, and wedge a knife blade between the front and rear cover halves - the card door will be loose with an attached spring coming free. No need to remove the rear housing completely, just enough to expose the tracks for the battery cover hinge. Remove the old door, noting the position of the opening spring at the hinge, by angling one hinge out first. Insert the new battery cover and the card door in reverse order.
