If you decide you would like to sell your device yourself here are some tips
-Find out what your phone is worth. A good way to do this is compare your phone to other similar models on sites like Craigslist. This will give you a ballpark estimate of what someone might be willing to pay for your device.
-Get your phone ready to sell. This includes backing up all your data, doing a factory reset, and removing any sim cards or memory cards from the device. You don’t want to leave anything personal on the phone that could give the new owner access to your accounts or personal information.
-Price it right. When selling online, it’s always best to err on the side of pricing too low rather than too high. You want to be competitive with other people selling similar devices, but you also don’t want to leave money on the table.
-Be safe. If you’re selling in person, meet in a public place like a coffee shop or mall. Don’t invite strangers to your home. And always be aware of your surroundings. Trust your gut – if something feels off, it probably is.
-Get paid safely. When selling online, only accept payment methods that offer buyer protection in case there are any problems with the transaction. PayPal is a good option, or you can use a service like Escrow.com for more expensive items. If selling in person, only accept cash.
-Ship (or deliver) promptly. Once you’ve received payment, get the phone to the new owner as soon as possible. The sooner they have the device, the happier they’ll be – and the less likely they are to leave you a negative review.
Following these tips will help make sure selling your cell phone goes as smoothly as possible!
