If you’re anything like me, you probably have a desk drawer or box full of unused tech. Rather than allow it to gather dust, why not sell it off and get back some of the money you’ve invested? With so many online marketplaces, it’s hard to know exactly where you should sell your used stuff.
You probably want to avoid low-ball offers and uncomfortable face-to-face meet-ups. You probably also want to keep the seller fees as low as possible. When it comes to selling your stuff online, eBay is a household name. But name recognition alone doesn’t automatically make it the best.
If you’re trying to sell electronics, you should look towards a marketplace that specializes in used tech — a marketplace that has no seller fees, such as Swappa.
Why Sell on Swappa?
You should sell your used tech on Swappa because it is the safest (and best) marketplace for used tech — keep reading to find out why.
There are a handful of reasons why you should sell your used tech in the Swappa marketplace, but one of the biggest reasons is seller fees. Swappa has fair fees, which are split between the buyer and seller — allowing the seller to pocket more money. On Swappa, sellers set their “Ask Price” (the amount they want to sell their item for), and otherwise, they only have to consider the cost of shipping and PayPal’s payment processing fee.

No Junk, No Jerks
Devices listed for sale on Swappa must be fully functional. This includes all buttons, ports, the camera, and more. In addition, devices cannot have any cracked or chipped glass, or water damage, they must include a functional battery, and they cannot have an outstanding balance with a carrier.
Essentially, if your device had a feature when it was new, that feature must be working for your device to meet Swappa’s listing criteria requirements. Swappa also doesn’t allow any jerks. Without needing to worry about getting a junk device or having to deal with a jerk seller — Swappa is an overall safer and more enjoyable place for buyers and sellers.
Swappa is a people powered marketplace
Swappa is powered by real people — on the staff side and on the buyer and seller side. Swappa works hard to keep the jerks away, which means a better experience for buyers and sellers. The Swappa community of buyers and sellers is a like-minded group of people who simply want to buy and sell gently used tech without having to worry about getting scammed.
And, while we always work to prevent issues before they happen — you shouldn’t stress if there is an issue. At Swappa, a real, honest-to-goodness person is never more than a few clicks away. You can quickly report an issue using our help desk, and our support team aims to respond in minutes (instead of hours, days, or weeks like you may find with other marketplaces). Customer support is something we take great pride in, and quite frankly, customer support is something we’re really good at.

A product catalog that specializes in used tech
Some online marketplaces, such as eBay, allow listings for all kinds of products. They are sort of like a flea market, just done online. But while flea markets are good for certain things, such as collectibles and other hard-to-find items, they aren’t best for buying or selling used tech. You can sell your used smartphones on Swappa, and you can also sell your used video game consoles, games, home tech, cameras, laptops, and wearables, and more. Swappa is a marketplace for used tech. And because we focus on used tech, we know what to look for and how to keep junk from being listed.
