My son is very tech savvy and always wants the most up to date technology. I always try to keep his phone updated. Weâ€™ve had a couple of incidents where he had an oops and it needed to be replaced. I recently discovered Trademore, itâ€™s an online website that allows you to buy, sell or trade in your mobile device. This is ideal for me because itâ€™s very convenient to shop online in the comfort of my home and I donâ€™t have to break the bank on an updated mobile device for my tenâ€“yearâ€“old.
Trademore is user friendly and makes it easy, in a few simple steps, to buy, sell or trade in your mobile device based on its value. The devices are certified by going through a thorough multi-point inspection for quality, reliability and functionality. So, you know youâ€™re not getting a faulty device when you purchase. You even get it promptly within two business days, the shipping is FREE and you get notifications along the way to keep you informed. The process is smooth from beginning to end.
If you are selling a device you will tell Trademore about the device in detail and what condition itâ€™s in. Based on the information you give them, theyâ€™ll make you an offer and you can ship them your device. Theyâ€™ll send you prepaid shipping materials. After your device is received and inspected based on the details you gave, youâ€™ll receive payment via virtual Mastercard or PayPal. I love this option because when you are trading in, the value of your old device can go towards your new purchase.
Weâ€™re a family divided in the smart phone arena, so half of us are on team iPhone and the other half on team Android. Trademore offers both iPhone and Android devices from the Apple and Samsung brands. You can search for exactly what you want by brand category, model/series or mobile carrier. You can also sort by the phone popularity or pricing from low to high or vice versa. The prices are affordable and if you have a specific budget the sorting feature is great for just that reason.
I should also mention that you can sell mobile phones, tablets and smartwatches on Trademore. This is a great solution if youâ€™re like me and going through mobile phones on a consistent basis whether youâ€™re just upgrading or had an unforeseen accident and now you need a NEW to you phone. If you have phones laying around the house in good condition and can be used by someone else, why not? Itâ€™s a great sustainable solution for tech youâ€™re not currently using that someone else will.
Overall, Trademore is a great website that gives you options to buy, sell or trade your mobile devices. They make the process seamless and they even give you information about recycling your device if you donâ€™t see it on their website for trade in. You can contact your local environmental agency to locate an electronics recycling center near you. Some electronic stores also will take recycled electronic devices and dispose of them for you. I think this is a win-win for any parent like me thatâ€™s in the market for a phone!
