Swappa Local now available in Atlanta, Georgia

Everyone loves finding great deals or making extra cash by selling the stuff they no longer need. For anyone who’s ever attempted to buy or sell used tech in-person, you’ve likely run into the frustrating experience that is online meetups. If you’ve been looking for a better way to buy or sell your used tech in Atlanta, we have the perfect solution…

We are thrilled to announce that Swappa Local is now available in Atlanta, Georgia. Swappa Local provides the ATL with the ability to safely buy or sell used tech in their local community. By avoiding shipping charges and making devices available for easy pickup, Swappa Local is changing the way people think of traditional face-to-face marketplaces.

This is thanks to Swappa’s support which heavily moderates the marketplace, manually verifies listings, performs background checks on phones, and provides 24/7 support to address any questions or concerns from users along the way. Swappa Local is the only used marketplace where you can trust the tech you buy.


Most folks are familiar with the city of Atlanta — known as “the city in a forest” — which is the capital of Georgia. The city has a rich history with plenty of sights and attractions. Whether it’s a stroll through Centennial Olympic Park (where they hosted the 1996 Olympic Games), looking for some family fun at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, checking out the World of Coca-Cola museum, snapping photos at Zoo Atlanta, checking out the stunning views at Stone Mountain Park, or a taking a tour of CNN’s global headquarters, there’s lots to see and do in Atlanta. The sprawling Atlanta metropolitan area is home to more than 5.9 million people (the 9th largest in the US) and includes Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb and Clayton counties. This is where we feel Swappa Local will provide the biggest opportunities for anyone looking to buy or sell their used tech.

Atlanta officially joins a handful of cities as part of Swappa Local’s “Round 2” rollout, as we work toward launching the new local marketplace to communities across the US. Swappa’s online-only marketplace already sees a large number of transactions taking place in the Atlanta area, so providing new and existing users with a safe local option was a logical next step.

What is Swappa Local?

Swappa has been around since 2010, offering a safer alternative to marketplaces like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. This has to do with our strict ‘no junk’ policy that requires all devices be fully functional and ready for activation. Our staff manually approves each and every listing before it goes live in our marketplace, and we perform background checks on used phones to ensure they haven’t been reported lost/stolen.

Swappa Local is built upon this very same foundation of safety and support. Whether an item is available for shipping or pickup, Swappa users in Atlanta can rest easy knowing the devices they’re browsing are clean and our support staff is always available — 24/7/365 — to answer any questions or concerns. With Swappa Local, you always get the best deals on newish devices, like used iPhones in Atlanta, without having to pay the full retail price.

This is in stark contrast to other online marketplaces that offer little-to-no moderation, do nothing to verify listings, and more closely resemble device junkyards with iCloud-locked or broken devices commonly being sold by completely anonymous (and sometimes even fraudulent) users. While other services have become a breeding ground for fraud and scammers, Swappa Local allows you to trust the tech you buy. In other words, Swappa Local is simply the best way to buy or sell used tech in your local community — bar none.

Swappa Local highlights:

  • No shipping charges
  • Get your devices fast
  • No junk, broken, or blacklisted devices
  • Trusted community of buyers and sellers
  • Swappa-approved swap spots for safe meetups
  • 24/7 support, 365 days a year
  • Trust the tech you buy

Whether it’s our photo verification system or background checks on used phones, there are plenty of reasons to check out Swappa Local. For more on how Swappa Local stacks up against the other guys, check out our post comparing Swappa vs OfferUp vs Letgo.
