Pro Tips: Sell Your Listing Faster

Pro Tips: Sell Your Listing Faster

When you list your phone (or tablet, or watch, or VR headset) on Swappa, you want it to sell. Fast. But sometimes it doesn’t. Here are a few tips and tricks to make your listing the best it can be.

Competitive Price

This is a big one. We can’t say that enough. We see hundreds and hundreds of listings and often the ones that don’t sell are priced too high.

Be sure to check out the pricing data that is available for your specific device. Everyone wants to get as much as they can for their device, but sometimes it’s priced too high and just can’t compete with the other listings.

You can also download the Swappa Price App for Android or iOS to get the value for the phone you have right in your hand.


Featured Listing

Featured listings are an inexpensive and easy way to upgrade your listing, making it more visible and more likely to sell.

When you feature your listing for just $5 your listing is:

  • Pinned to the top in the Feature Listing section above the non-featured listings
  • Highlighted in yellow and starred to draw more attention
  • Tweeted to all the followers of the @SwappaMucho Twitter account

Your featured listing will look something like this:

Be Accurate & Detailed 

In Wesley T.’s Sitejabber review mentioning Featured Listings, he also talks about being detailed and honest in your listings.

Provide honest, detailed descriptions of your device. Mentioning why you’re selling is helpful, too.
