Hey there, I know it’s been awhile, but real world concerns have stopped me from writing up regular posts for my blog. Now, however, I’m back to write about a topic that has intrigued me for awhile. In recent years, a growing trend on the internet is to buy and sell used phones online. Often, prices are better online compared to dealing directly with a cell carrier. Because of how quickly phone technology advances, the option to upgrade from an old to new device often presents itself at least once a year. Naturally, the cost of constantly changing phones can become prohibitive, so there are sites out there that specialize in buying and selling used phones. It ultimately saves you money and prevents your previous phone from going to waste.
So how exactly does the process to sell your old phone work? I made short list of steps that need to be taken so that you can earn cash for your device as soon as possible:
Know where you’re going to sell your phone in the first place. There are plenty of options out there. As an example, one option you might want to look into is a company called GoodCellas, where you learn how to sell old cell phones for cash.
Whichever outlet you choose, follow their steps as closely as possible. Typically, the process isn’t too complicated, but if you miss something it might hurt your ability to sell your old cell phone. It’s obvious, but at the very least the phone you’re selling should be fully functional.
Typically, the process for trading in your phone goes something like this:
- At the reseller’s site, you’ll have options in front of you to designate the kind of phone you’re looking to sell: it’s manufacturer and model and whatnot.
- Before sending it in, make sure the phone you’re selling meets the criteria designated on the site.
- You’ll be able to see an estimate of the cash return based on the condition of the phone you’re selling.
- Then, you’ll probably see instructions on how exactly to send in your phone. There, the phone will be evaluated for its functionality and condition, and you’ll get a final offer for your phone.
- Accepting the offer yields the payment in the form best for you. If you reject the offer, they’ll send your phone back.
That’s the general process to sell used phones. It might seem daunting at first, but once you know how to do it, you can potentially save hundreds of dollars.
