How to resell your iPhone on Back Market

 

  • 1. Open up our smartphone buyback tool and input your Apple model and storage information, which you can find in your device's Settings and About Phone section. 
  • 2. Identify whether your phone is currently locked by a specific carrier (ie Verizon, Sprint, AT&T...etc) or if it's an unlocked phone.
  • 3. Verify the physical conditions of the phone's screen, sides and back. Our tool will guide you to select the most accurate descriptions of the condition of your phone.
  • 4. Finally, verify if the phone and all its features are functioning properly.
  • 5. Submit your iPhone information and Back Market will instantly generate the best offer among our partners. From here, you can either accept or decline your offer.

If you decide to accept Back Market's offer, then you have two choices (note - you must be at least 18 years old in order to sell you device through our BuyBack program):

1. Ship your device with a prepaid shipping kit: this kit will be sent to you within two days. You just need to pack your iPhone in the secure shipping kit.

2. Ship your device without the secure shipping kit: you'll need to find suitable packaging on your own and protect your iPhone really well so it's not damaged during transit.

 

Once the merchant has received your iPhone, they'll inspect your smartphone and validate its condition. If the product is not compliant, the merchant will make you a new offer. On the other hand, if the merchant validates its condition, you'll be paid within a maximum of 7 days. (Cool!)

So, when will you start clearing out your drawers?
