In the last few years we have seen so many companies launching innovative and affordable Smartphones. A touch based phone is now very affordable for even low budget users. It don’t have to be the iPhone or Samsung all the time, there are other stylish and stunning phones available from other companies. In India Mi3 is selling like hot cakes and in Pakistan QMobile is doing wonders. Similarly in other countries there are local companies producing the finest and yet affordable phones.
So if you already a have a old phone and want to get a better one, you can sell it for extra cash. The money can be than used to buy a latest and recent model available in the market for your particular price range. There are local markets in every country where you can sell the phones for a good price. However if you want to sell online then here is a recommended website which can buy the old and used mobile phones on good rate.
Where to Sell Your Phone Online?
There are several websites available, for example eBay, Amazon and craigslist but the one that got my attention is SellMyPhone.co.uk. It is much better than the others in terms of price, variety of phone models that can be sold and the selling process. There is a handy search box at the home page of the site, which allows you to search for your phone model and get price quotes according to your phone specification.
Once you have picked your model you can click on Sell Now button to proceed with the selling process. On the next page you are provided with a short form where you need to enter your personal details and the payment method. After everything is entered accurately you will need to free post the phone on the address of the company. This is the time consuming part because you will need to personally visit a courier service office to pack the phone and send it on the company address.
After the phone is received by the company one of their mobile repairing engineer will inspect its physical condition. If everything is fine, the payment is issued on the same day. At maximum the payment takes 3 days. However in most cases the payment is sent on the same day. No wants to wait for payment so long and if the delays are in weeks then it is going to irritate the sellers. However SellMyPhone.co.uk takes these things into consideration and the until the seller is 100% satisfied, the deal is not finalized. The seller can even get the phone back in the next 7 days, if he/she is not satisfied with the deal.
What Factors Affects the Price?
Before you decide to sell your old mobile phone. You need to take certain things in consideration so that you can be sure that you will get the most out of Smartphone. Below listed are some of the factors that are going to affect the price of your mobile phone.
- The Condition – The physical condition of the mobile needs to clean and scratch less. If it has a lot of scratches then you are going to get lower offer for the phone. Similarly if there is anything broke, e.g the edge or the inside case then you should expect lower price.
- Age – The age of the phone is also important. If it is a very old phone then it will be hard for you to sell on a good price. Such companies only buy phones that have demand in the market. If the phone has no demand then they are not going to invest in it. A iPhone 4S is going to sell much faster and on a good rate, as compare to a Nokia 6600 hand set.
- Manufacture of the Company – If the mobile is local made then you can expect much lower price for it. Most of the buyers prefer to buy phones that are manufactured by popular companies. For example Nokia, Samsung, Apple, HTC, Sony, Sony Ericsson and Black Berry. If the mobile phone is of a local company then the best choice is sell locally. However if it is from any of the above companies then it is better to compare prices on a website and sell where the price is the best.
These are some of the factors that can affect your mobile phone price during its sale. As stated earlier there are several website companies available, however during my research I found SellMyPhone.co.uk the best one. However you can conduct your own research to find the one which pays much higher for your phone. At the end a thorough research is going to get you the most out of your phone.
