About Back Market.
Or why you're better off here
Certified merchants and systematic quality control
A real alternative to buying new.
Conscientious and cheerful.
It's more romantic, less wasteful.
And quite frankly - it's just so much cheaper.

«What's the difference between a used iPhone and a refurbished iPhone?»
In both cases, the two devices are pre-owned. The similarities end there. A refurbished iPhone has been tuned up and brought back to perfect working condition in a factory before being sold on Back Market (or somewhere else). So basically a refurbished phone has the double advantage of being a cheap smartphone while also having a professional refurbisher guarantee its excellent quality.
«Does Back Market only sell refurbished tablets and smartphones?»
No. This is a misconception that we are trying to address. Many people think that refurbished electronics are limited to phones and tablets when in fact everything, or almost everything is available refurbished (from consoles to printers, blenders, washing machines, hover boards, the list goes on). Our role is to make it easier for folks to find and buy all these products.
«How do I know that my refurbished tablet isn't going to conk out in 1 month?»
You have our good faith, but we know that's not enough. We've made our customer reviews available for you to see for yourself that you're in good hands. And in case of some unlikely glitch, our warranties allow you to get a full refund, or to exchange your product for a minimum of six months.
«Is Harry Potter's Nimbus 2000 refurbished?»
Well now. That's just too important a question to answer in a few lines. And that's why we've written a whole article about it in our fantastic blog.
