Especially when comparing to Ebay, this site was so effortless and smooth. From searching item, to getting the all the specs on items, to the closing transaction every thing was effortless, logical and smooth, without all the trollers and scam artist on Ebay. Very straightforward. Thank you Swappa for setting the standard.

Felt very comfortable using this service to buy an IPhone and I'm normally an Ebay fan. Ebay had too many phones in a wide variety of conditions and prices. Condition here stated mint and the price was no hassle and what I wanted to pay.

I purchased a mint condition iPad Pro. Very happy with my purchase! I initially tried to win multiple bids on eBay with no success. Not to mention eBay does not guarantee that the imei number is clean. So glad I chose to do business on Swappa will buy again!

I was searching the internet for the best and cheapest place to get a use phone. I looked at Amazon, Ebay, and a couple other used phone websites. I have bought a phone on Amazon and Ebay before. This time I used Swappa, and the experience has turned out to be the easiest, cheapest, and safest.
