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 and sell your used tech in Kansas City, we have the perfect solution…
We’re thrilled to announce that Swappa Local is now officially available in Kansas City as one of our very first launch cities. Swappa started here in KC and still calls it home today. Ben Edwards started Swappa in Kansas City in 2010 after getting scammed (again) in a bad Craigslist meetup. Being sold a blocklisted phone wasn’t worth the high speed chase that almost happened, but it was the motivation to create a better, safer marketplace.
Swappa Local now provides KC residents 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.
What is Swappa Local?
Swappa online-only marketplace has been around since 2010, offering a safer alternative to sites 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 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 same foundation of safety and support, only now we’re providing our users with next-day pickup and delivery for local transactions. Whether an item is available for shipping or next-day local pickup and delivery, Swappa users can rest easy knowing the devices they’re shopping for are legitimate and our support team is available 365 days a year to answer any questions or concerns along the way. With Swappa Local, you always get the best deals on newish tech without having to pay full MSRP.
