The Truth About Selling Your iPhone Online

uSell.com is simply a cell phone buyback company comparison site. They do provide systems for the companies on their site, such as prepaid labels and order status, but all in all just provide the user with company reviews and a comparison of offers to buy cell phones and iPhones. uSell.com spends money on TV ads and other advertising, so they charge high fees to the companies on their site as commissions. You'll notice many offer prices for cell phones and iPhones will be lower on uSell than on the particular buyback company's website as they will have to pay a heavy commission to uSell. That being said, by selling your iPhone or cell phone through uSell, you do have the protection that uSell will back you up in case something goes wrong.
|NextWorth is a highly reliable consumer electronics buyback company that has been around for many years. If you sell your iPhone or cell phone to NextWorth, you will certainly not be scammed, BUT you will receive less money than other competitors, generally. NextWorth generates substantial business through corporate partnerships like Target. When you sell your iPhone or cell phone to Target, it is actually going to NextWorth. Because they focus highly on corporate partnerships, they are less retail focussed.||$237|

|If you want the most money for your iPhone or cell phone, sell it on eBay. However, selling on eBay comes with risks and headaches. You'll have to list your device specifically and decide on how to price it. Once it sells, you run the risk of dealing with a buyer who could run a scam on you, file disputes in PayPal, or leave you negative feedback on your eBay account for no reason. eBay does have some protections for the buyer, but still runs a risk for selling your valuable iPhone or cell phone.||$630+|
|Craigslist||Craigslist can be the riskiest way to sell your iPhone or cell phone. Crime has been heavily associated with Craigslist dealings over the years. However, Craigslist does provide you with a way to get instant cash for your iPhone or cell phone on the spot. If you need money fast, Craigslist is your bet, but be careful!||$500|
