We've all got one—that collection of old electronic devices that we no longer use and are just taking up space. Maybe you've considered selling them but don't know where to start. Or perhaps you've tried but found the process too complicated and time-consuming. In either case, this post is for you! We’ll walk you through how to cash in on your old electronic devices quickly and easily, so read on!
Trade in with Amazon
Amazon Trade-In is a program that will give you credit for your electronic item.
After providing Amazon with an accurate description of what you want to trade, they will present you with an offer. If you accept, you send the item to Amazon at their expense. After inspecting the item, they give you an Amazon gift card for the agreed-upon amount! EASY PEASY.
The logistics of Nextworth.com are the same as Amazon Trade-In, but you have additional payment options. You can choose between a check, receiving the money to your PayPal account, or a Target gift card.
Fun fact, if you’d rather not go through the hassle of shipping your item, you can drop it off at your local Target store and get your gift card that way. This means you can browse the aisle to see what you want to spend your gift card on! A win-win, really!
eBay Instant Sale
eBay provides a fast and easy way to get rid of your items. The items can even be non-functioning. The process is similar to the previous options we’ve mentioned, and you’ll have the money in your PayPal account within five business days of eBay receiving your item.
Sell your item locally or with an eBay regular sale
This is the traditional way of selling on eBay. You list your item, interested buyers give an offer, and you go from there. This selling method to another individual will likely put the most money in your pocket. Remember that selling your item to a business means that they will resell it for a profit. If you don’t want anyone else profiting from you, sell to an individual.
Sell your old camera and lens to MPB.
MPB is the top online destination for selling used cameras and lenses. In just a few clicks, you can have your camera listed and start receiving offers from interested buyers. So before you put that old camera gathering dust in a closet, take a few minutes to sell it on MPB! You'll be glad you did.
Consider these tips to get the highest possible price for your electronic items:
Sell your item at the best time. The best time is as soon as possible. Once you have replaced the electronic, immediately get rid of the old one. Letting the item sit in a drawer for six months will only end in you getting less money.
Keep all the accessories. You’ll get considerably more profit if you can provide the charger, box, instructions, and any other items with your device.
Get in the habit of keeping all those extra items together in the closet, starting as soon as you first purchase the electronic product.
Name-brand items tend to hold their value better. For example, an old iPhone is worth much more than most other cell phones. It’s something to consider when purchasing your electronic devices.
Be accurate in your descriptions. If you’re inaccurate, the item will ultimately receive a lower offer or be rejected altogether. If you have an old-ass Android that literally can’t take pictures, don’t go about saying the camera is top-tier. No one likes a liar.
IMPORTANT TIP: Before shipping or selling any electronic device, ensure that all private information is wiped clean from the item. These items, particularly cell phones and memory cards, can hold extensive personal information. You don’t want a random having access to all of that.
So there you have it. If you’re in the market for a new phone, laptop, or gaming system and feel guilty about upgrading, don’t be! Upgrading isn’t so bad after all! You could actually make some money off of your old devices.
