What goes into an offer?

Professional refurbishers make offers based on your device’s condition and its current market value. If you don’t get an offer right away, you can always try again — Trade-in offers depend on the market, so there’s always round 2.

How does Trade-in work?

In a nutshell: Trade in your old tech and get cash for it. Yep, unlike other trade-in programs out there, with Back Market Trade-in you get cold hard cash dropped straight into your bank account because, well, it's better than store credit (amiright?).

It's easy, too. Go through the assessment, get a price offer instantly from an expert refurbisher, and mail your device for free using our prepaid shipping label. Once the refurbisher receives the item, they'll check to see that it matches the assessment. If it's all good, they'll pay you by direct deposit. If things are a little off, all is not lost! The refurbisher will send you a counteroffer. But the power is always yours: you're free to accept or reject any offers.

You can sell smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, headphones, earphones, and speakers through Trade-in. Even broken ones. There's a lot of trash out there, but when it comes to tech a lot of it isn't. Refurbishers will restore your old electronics to perfect working condition so that any tech you sell can live its best reborn life.

Why's that? Reusing, repairing, and refurbishing our electronics is a simple way to reduce the environmental damage that comes from manufacturing brand-new tech and lower the amount of toxic e-waste that ends up in our landfills. Guess this makes you a do-gooder. We're okay with it if you are.
