Swappa is a user-to-user marketplace for gently used mobile devices.
Safety, simplicity, and the human factor make Swappa better.
Swappa doesn't charge seller fees.
Only buyers pay a small fee that is included in the sale price.
Less fees means everyone saves money over other markets.
On Swappa your listing is not considered sold until you are paid.
And we don’t make you wait to receive your money as a first time seller.
You will have payment before you ship.
Swappa was founded in 2010 by Ben Edwards, a long-time software and mobile developer.
The inspiration for Swappa sparked when Ben had trouble finding a good source for test devices for Android development projects. Turning to eBay and Craigslist proved perilous and time-wasting for buying mobile phones. Blacklisted phones, junk devices, inefficient communication, and downright fraud plagued the antiquated marketplaces.
Knowing there had to be a better way, Swappa began as a side-project to build a better marketplace for buying and selling quality mobile devices. Safety, simplicity, low fees, and the "human factor" made Swappa different then and still do to this day.
From the first Swappa sale (a Motorola Droid) to millions of dollars per month in commerce, Swappa has grown to be the ultimate mobile marketplace. We enjoy creating technology that makes it easy for people to directly sell devices to other consumers and everything we do revolves around this concept.
