Kansas City, MO, September 8, 2016 (Newswire.com) - This week’s Apple iPhone 7 announcement was particularly exciting for user-to-user marketplace, Swappa. Swappa is a marketplace for buying and selling gently used phones, with the iPhone 6S, 6 and 5S being among top sellers. Consumers have many options when looking to sell or trade their old iPhone in favor of a new model, but often find that the payouts are far below the value of their device.
Swappa’s CEO, Ben Edwards, sees safety and value for your device to be the biggest selling points for the site. Edwards says, “Users will always get the most for their newish mobile devices when selling directly to another user. Swappa makes it safe and easy to do so.”

Users love Swappa because they find the process to be easy and straightforward. Swappa user, Brenda S., described her recent transaction as “frictionless” on the review site, Sitejabber. She continued, “This was the first time I ever purchased a device this way -- I have always purchased from a carrier. Swappa made it so easy, that I would be reluctant to ever go back to purchasing devices through a carrier or any other source again! I got exactly the device I needed at a great price. The seller was outstanding. I felt secure making the purchase. Will definitely recommend to others, and would do it again myself.”
With monthly sales proceeds for Swappa sellers approaching $5M, a strong byproduct of Swappa’s marketplace activity is the ability to accurately provide used mobile pricing data. This data is particularly helpful for users looking to sell their device for a fair price.
A recent article by tech industry leader, Tom’s Guide, compared the trade-in value for iPhone models and users consistently saw a higher payout on Swappa over sites like Glyde, eBay and Gazelle.
Swappa is less expensive than eBay; no seller fees. Flat $10 fee paid by the buyer.
Swappa users never meet face-to-face and are protected by PayPal, making it much safer than Craigslist
Users sell their phone directly to another user verses selling to a buyback company for a lower payout
To get the most for your used iPhone, Swappa is the better alternative to sites like eBay, Craigslist, Glyde and Gazelle.
