Oh, and here it is.
Payment method: Amazon gift card
Average time: Two working days after Amazon received the item
Amazon’s purchasing program works much like retail. You do a simple search for an electronic item, enter all the necessary details (storage, screen size, and so on) and then select the condition of the device. Amazon will then make an offer for your electronic gadget and, if you accept it, provide a delivery label for the item.
The number of items that Amazon accepts spans a wide range, including video doorbells and other home security devices.
When you submit the item, Amazon will inspect it to make sure the item matches your original description. If everything checks out, your Amazon account will be credited with an Amazon eGift card for the offer. If the item is in better condition than you described, Amazon Customer Service promises to pay you more.
The downside? Your money is locked into your Amazon account.
Payment method: Apple Store Gift Card
Turning time: Immediately if you do it in an Apple Store. Two to three weeks if done online
Apple’s swap program takes devices from a wide range of companies, not just their own. Right now, it’s best to use Apple’s online service to get a quote and complete the exchange. It is unclear how the in-process will work when Apple starts opening its stores again.
Apple currently accepts smartphones, tablets, computers, watches and “other” devices. If the company does not have a purchase offer for your device, such as iPods or AirPods, Apple will recycle it for free.
Apple says it takes 2-3 weeks to complete the online exchange process. If you want to place an order for a new unit right now, the company will credit your payment method with the exchange value once it has been processed.
Using Apple’s replacement service makes sense if you’re already planning to buy a new iPhone or Mac. It is not a valuable option for someone who wants to buy the latest Samsung Galaxy phone for example.
Payment method: Best Buy gift card
Turning time: 10 working days
Getting a quote from Best Buy is as easy as choosing a product category, manufacturer, model and condition. Once you have completed the questionnaire, the tool will estimate the unwanted device and give you an immediate quote. The offer amount, if you choose to accept it, will only be awarded as a Best Buy gift card.
You must send the item to Best Buy with a prepaid shipping label at this time, as the company has temporarily suspended its in-store purchase program due to COVID-19.
Best Buy’s payment times are slower than other services, but the company accepts a wider range of gadgets – matching almost every type of electronic device it sells, including various smartphone options, laptops, digital camera options and game consoles. For example, you can shop with video games, game systems and an iPhone or iPad at the same time.
Payment method: PayPal, Zelle or check
Turning time: 72 hours after receipt of your items
Unlike previous online electronics sales services, the ItsWorthMore software will pay you through your choice of PayPal, Zelle or an old-fashioned paper check.
The process of selling electronic goods involves answering some questions about the old cell phone, tablet, Apple Watch (or other Apple device) or computer you are selling. ItsWorthMore will then give you an offer and, if you accept it, give you a prepaid shipping label. During the checkout process, you can choose how you want to receive your payment. You also have the option to pay $ 15 for two-day shipping and 24-hour processing time. Otherwise standard shipping and a turnaround meal of 72 hours. However, processing can take up to five working days.
When your device is received, ItsWorthMore will verify that the specified working condition is correct (whether it is in good condition, fair, broken, etc.) and if there is a discrepancy, you will have a chance to request the device back or accept revised offer.
Payment method: PayPal, direct deposit, buy back – world gift card, prepaid debit card or check
Turning time: 48 hours after inspection
BuyBackWorld will buy a wide range of products, including phones, tablets, iPods, cameras, game consoles, computers, headphones, drones and, you get the point. You can even get a custom quote for products that are not displayed on the site.
After receiving a quote and choosing how you want to get paid, send your items to BuyBackWorld. Once they have received your shipment, they will inspect your goods and you will be paid. If the quote is adjusted after inspection, you have the opportunity to accept the new offer or get your device back to you.
