    I personally like Swappa. I've only used them once to buy a phone, but would use them if I was selling as it's a better experience than Ebay (for both buyer and seller from what I've seen) and more geared specifically for selling gadgets. I believe the fees are also lower than Ebay. If anything, Swappa is a good place to see what the going rate is via their price charts and recently sold list.

    Swappa is the only place that I sell old iPhones on anymore. eBay is waste of time to me. You can do Craigslist as well, but obviously meet in public (maybe T-Mobile store) when doing the transaction.

    I would echo using Swappa. And if you do not have another phone lying around, I wouldn't sell it prior to your pre-order considering you may need that 8 Plus until sometime around President's Day o_O

    My vote goes to Swappa as well. I've successfully sold several phones and tablets on Swappa and it was a far more pleasant experience than eBay could ever be. Also, the fees are far lower.

    In dollars. And as much as you can get. :D

    Seriously though, they use PayPal and you can use their history to properly price it to sell.

    As others have said, Swappa. Avoid eBay. Way too many issues and loopholes selling iPhones on their.

    The astronomical eBay fees alone make me not want to sell anything on it ever again.
