Is Swappa appropriate for selling manufacturer refurbished GPU's?

Hi there. New to Swappa here, just became aware of it's existence and someone mentioned that Swappa especially caters to graphics cards. I also saw that each listing is hand-reviewed by a staff member from reading the "No junk, no jerks" section.

That said, I do frequently sell graphics cards. They are predominantly manufacturer refurbished or replacement units as part of a warranty claim (which do come with manufacturer paperwork to prove as such). Replacements are often "like new" with plastic protective peel intact or no obvious signs of use. Less frequently I sell used quality ones; ones that do have signs of use such as dust or cosmetic scratches. Even less so I refurbish something myself if a problem is fixable without needing a warranty claim.

Everything that I have sold has been stress tested with multiple applications.

That said, would Swappa be an appropriate platform for me to sell on? I currently operate on eBay with an 18 year old account in "top rated seller" standing and "top rated plus" on a majority of my listings.

Hey there, Paul. We're glad you found your way over to Swappa!

Manufacturer refurbished and warranty replacement GPUs are perfectly fine to list on Swappa! The same goes for repairs you perform yourself, as long as you are absolutely sure that the card is now fully functional for the end user, and that this is made clear to potential buyers.

So, feel free to start listing! Just make sure to describe the repair/replacement status as such in the "Damage Description" box, and select "Used" as the product condition.

Once again, thanks for finding Swappa. We hope you enjoy your time here!
