    Hi all,

    I tried to search for an answer to this, but couldn't find anything. Does anyone have any advice on the best place online to sell a 6s Plus? Not craigslist....I don't want to deal with that. One of those places that buys it and you ship it to them.

    I would appreciate any help.

    Thank you

    Swappa is your best choice. Stay away from EBay, it's a fraud zone their.

    I've sold at least 10 phones on eBay with no issue. Some used, 1 new, some broken. I tried swappa this year and had nobody interested.

    Stay away from eBay.
    Go with swappa.
    If you send it to one of those places that buys it from you and resales it you will leave about 30-40% of meat on the bone.

    Swappa.com is the best. You'll get a good price and it will sell fast.

    I've been looking into this too. Won't do eBay again after getting burned once. Curious to know how Swappa dodges the fraud pitfalls that sour the experience for some eBay users.

    I used to always sell my phones on eBay for maximum profit but the last few phones I have had trouble with bad buyers.

    Swappa for high value items. eBay takes 10% and with a 6s plus that's a lot. Swappa only takes $10.

    Another vote for Swappa. I've sold 3 iPhones rather quickly on there. Hassle-free.

    I'm done with eBay. I'm on my third auction and I think I got screwed over again with someone who doesn't want to pay. Swappa it is.

    Would Swappa take an unlocked Canadian phone? Also how does it work?

    Sounds like you want a place that buys it and you send it to them? Like BuyBackWorld You can use this code to get 10% more APPLEINSIDER10

    Unfortunately, Swappa says no cracked screens. The cracked screen will be a problem with trade ins as well. I have sold an iPhone with a cracked screen on eBay and got a pretty decent price for it.

    You should look at Gazelle. I've used them several times and have always been satisfied.

    I sold my GS5 and iPhone 6 (16GB) on Glyde.

    May not have gotten top price, but they both sold within couple of days.
    No pictures to take, do description to write, and no shipping stuff to put together.
    You just list it and they send you a box that is ready to go that you put the phone in and drop it off at USPS office.

    I got $250 in my pocket for the iPhone 6 16GB and $90 in pocket for Samsung GS5 16GB.
    Didn't think that was too bad for it being no hassle at all.

    The new eBay quick sale is a good option for the no hassle type sites.

    eBay, Gazelle and bestbuy is a good options for selling old phones. I have not heard more about Swappa much so wont consider as of now.

    I would try Gazelle as well. You can get an estimate for your phone before you ship it out to them.
