So for those who sold your old phone to gazelle when did you get paid? Last year I had the money in my Paypal account the day they received and checked my phone and this year they got my phone and checked it on Thursday and I am still waiting for my payment

Amazon paid me more for both my iPhone and iPad. I just sold my iPhone 5s and my iPad Air. No check, just a credit/gift card to your account.

I am with you on this...that is when they accepted my phone. In previous years I have gotten payment the same day accepted or next day. I guess we will see on Tuesday being Monday is a holiday if they payment is sent otherwise might have to give them a call.

I've sold to Gazelle many times and the process was definitely slower this year.

They received my 6 on 10/5 and I just received PayPal payment on 10/10/15.

It took the whole five days stated in their email this time, but they met their commitment. Guess I've been spoiled by their past performance.

USPS says they delivered my phone on 10/7 around 9:30am and Gazelle doesn't even show it as received yet.

I have always received a check from them within 5 days of inspecting my iPhones. This year was no different with the Verizon iPhone 6 that I sent to them.

Gazelle inspected my phone 10/1 and paid me via PayPal on 10/6. I think they've just been flooded with iPhones coming in and can't keep up.

I received my Check in about 4 days after they process my order. Does PayPal charge you a fee when if you received your payment through them?

I hope not I don't remember them ever doing so

I'm also upset I had to send in as good because of two naturally occurring micro scratches

If this was the iPhone 5 my phone would be flawless

No PayPal fees. Gazelle's quote before I sent my phone in is the amount that was deposited in my bank account.

Beware of Amazon listing changes... The 6 Plus 128 Verizon doesn't exist any longer, so, if you trade that in, it will be returned as 'wrong item'. Got bit by that. Listing was changed to 6. Now I have to use Gazelle or Swappa or something after waiting three weeks. :)

5th day after.

They might just be a little back logged.
This is my thought as well. Especially since a lot of people are turning in their old iPhones now that the new one is released. I've never had any problems getting my full quoted amount from Gazelle.
