When I was considering trying to sell my cell phone for cash, I had a lot of valid questions. Number one: would it be worth it? My phone was not new and had a small scratch on the side. Sure, it worked well, but could I really sell my cell phone for cash when there are so many new phones on the market already? Who would want my old phone?
Turns out, I didn’t have to worry. There was a much bigger market for my old phone than I originally thought, and I was able to sell my cell phone for cash in just a few days. I created a list on a cell phone sales site, posted some photos, and wrote a little blurb on my phone. So, I ran into a little predicament … How much should I charge? I was selling an iPhone that had been very good when it first came out, but is now a bit old. He knew he couldn’t collect what he paid for him, but he should be able to get something, right?
Figuring out how to price my phone was probably the hardest part of trying to sell my cell phone for cash. After all, if you didn’t charge enough, it would hardly be worth the effort of trying to sell it. If I overcharged, then I couldn’t find someone willing to pay what I wanted. I had to find a happy medium, where the cost of packaging, insuring, and mailing my phone was covered by the sale price, but I was still able to earn enough money to make the sale of my phone worthwhile.
That required a bit of research. First, I looked up how much my phone had cost when it was new. Then I started visiting used phone sites to see what kind of prices other sellers were charging for phones similar to mine. I was lucky enough to find a few other people who were trying to sell my cell phone for cash, so it was easy for me to see what kind of prices other sellers were getting for the phone I was trying to sell.
While searching, I realized something … creating a phone list was a lot of work! I wanted to sell my cell phone for cash, but not if it was going to require so much research. Fortunately, while searching for prices for used phones, I came across sites that make selling used phones even easier. All I had to do for them was get a quote for my current phone through a website, receive a prepaid mailing envelope in the mail, send my phone to the company that owns the site, and wait for my money. I didn’t have to worry about describing my phone, buyer disputes, or any of the other headaches that come with selling things online.
If you have old phones in your house, do what I did. I decided to sell my cell phone for cash, and now I have a lot of money instead of an old phone. If you have old phones that are just collecting dust in your home, then you can find a buyer like I did. Don’t wait while other people make money off their old phones, go online and sell your phone now.
