If you are one of those electronics active people and try to be up-to-date all the time than there is no secret that you need to change your phones pretty often. Moreover, if you are an iPhone owner you even know the exact time (September every year) when it is time for changes. This means that you should always know about the possibilities of selling your old iPhone in order to get some extra money for a new model. In general experts divide all the possibilities of selling old iPhones into three main categories: online marketplace, offline classifieds and online buyback programs. Below we decided to describe each of these main options to help you get a new iPhone without spending so much money!
Online Marketplaces – Electronics “maniacs” explain that today online marketplaces are considered to be one of the greatest options to put your offer for a used iPhone. First of all they advise to put a question on agenda how to compare phones on the market and be competitive without fooling myself or a potential buyer. The easiest way to find out is to check the prices for iPhones of the same condition and of the same make, model and year as your own piece and only after that consider setting up some price for your iPhone. Another option of selling an iPhone is not just setting up a fixed price for your item but creating an auction for your buyers. In this case they raise the price without your help and in the end you have a possibility to get much more money than you actually expected to! Here you should also remember about the fees and delivery costs that you should either mention separately in your offer or deliberately include into the price for the item.
Offline Classifieds – This is an option for those who do not like or believe in the Internet options. It means that you can sell your old iPhone locally without the necessity of sending it somewhere far. Moreover, in this case you get the possibility to actually see a person you intend to sell your old iPhone to. For local sales you can make some advertisements in local newspapers or just check what people of the community look for in the Internet. The only precaution that experts advise to do in this case is to meet with your potential buyer in a public place to make yourself and him or her comfortable that there is no setup.
Online Buyback Programs – Online buyback programs are, in fact, ordinary web-sites where you have a perfect option of buying back used iPhones and any other modern smartphones. All that the web-sites require you to do is choose your phone’s model and condition (in case of not iPhone a manufacture too). Then these programs simply calculate the price you can get for a phone. If you are satisfied, you sell your phone where its condition is checked and in case of perfect Ok you get the check via post.
