    Other than selling on Ebay, what are some fair companies to sell an old device back to?

    Thanks!!!

    That was the name of the company I was looking for. Have you used them? How much does Swappa get? I was looking for an alternative to Ebay with their fees for selling.

    Thanks for the above responses!!!

    Yes I've bought and sold a few devices. They get $10 and PayPal gets a cut too.

    Swappa is the way to go, get the best value back.

    So, there are no selling fees? If it sells for 375.00, I get the full amount? I think I usually get 4-450 on a used iPhone. By the time, I get hit with seller fees and shipping, I lose close to 75-100. I may try the swappa site.

    Thanks again!

    read a few post above. There is a flat $10 fee. IIRC, that is the only fee and paypal does not actually get anything (could be wrong, but I have sold two phones and only remember the $10 fee).

    It is a very straightforward process and a great way to sell or buy.

    I'm using Nextworth. Used them a few times in the past. Gazelle was offering $225 for my GF's iPhone 6s, Nextworth was offering $361 when I locked it in, now its $341, but still a pretty good price.

    I'm using nextworth for the first time. Gazelle, Apple, and Verizon will give me less. I do not trust eBay.

    With swappa you pay them (swappa) a $10 fee so if it sells for $375 you get $365 but you also pay for shipping so you'd net $365 minus shipping.
