Sell your iPhone for cash

Sell your iPhone for cash

Selling your iPhone is a great way to make money, while giving your old device a new home. Maybe you’ve upgraded to one of the new iPhones that came out in September, or maybe you’re ready to part ways with that iPhone 6 that’s been gathering dust in your closet. Whatever reason you have for selling your device, the best way to get the most cash for your old iPhone is by selling it on Swappa.

Here are a few things to consider before you sell your iPhone.


How much is my iPhone worth?

Several factors affect the price of a used iPhone including storage, carrier and condition. A phone with 32 GB of storage will be cheaper than one with 128 GB. Unlocked iPhones, and those more broadly compatible, usually have higher prices than those that are locked to specific carriers.

The best way to check how much you can sell your iPhone for is by using our sell page on Swappa. From there you can select your specific model and compare prices with other sellers in the marketplace. This will give you accurate, updated pricing info so you’re always in the know.


When should I sell my old iPhone?

The best time to sell your old iPhone is now. Over time, the value of your iPhone depreciates so you’ll get a better value for it by selling it sooner rather than later. Additionally, we recommend selling your device before a new iPhone is released. This is because Apple typically discounts the price of older models by around $100, almost instantly dropping the value of used models in the process.


Where can I make the most money selling my iPhone?

There are a few options for selling your iPhone –  trading it in through retail and manufacturer programs, selling it on buy-back sites, or selling it through an online marketplace like Swappa. For those hoping to get the best value, you always get the most money for your old iPhone by selling it on Swappa. This is because the Swappa marketplace allows you to sell your iPhone directly to other buyers — no middleman involved. This is stark contrast to trade-in websites who give you the lowest possible value for your old devices so that they can resell them for a profit.

You also wont be hit with seller fees, which are paid for by the buyer. That means it costs you zero dollars create a listing and start selling your old iPhone to a user across the country. With no seller fees, there’s nothing standing in the way of you selling your iPhone and getting paid…fast.


How can I sell my old iPhone?

You can get started selling your iPhone on Swappa by creating a listing. After selecting the model you’re trying to sell and adding some details about it, you’ll have to upload a few photos (including a verification photo). Once your listing has been submitted, a real person from our team will verify the listing and quickly make sure everything is in order.

The more competitive your price, the faster it will sell.  You’ll want to make sure you backup and factory reset your iPhone to get it ready for its new owner. Then you should package it safely so it arrives exactly in the condition described. For a full breakdown of what to do to list your phone on Swappa, check out our post about how to sell your iPhone
