Benefits of Trading Your Phone with Stopoint.com


So your smartphone is 3 years old and you really want to buy the latest model. Here’s the question – what happens to the old phone? So many people throw away their old phones. Wouldn’t it be a much better idea to sell your phone to someone who will pay you good money for it and ensures that the device gets recycled and finds a new owner?

That’s exactly what you get with phone trade-in services such as Stopoint.com – we pay you good money for your phone and see that it finds a new owner, someone who will treasure it and take care of it. At Stopoint.com, we believe that every phone is valuable. We pay a great price for your old phone and resell at a slightly higher price to cost-conscious buyers looking for refurbished phones.

Sure, you have the option of selling your phone to a direct-buyer, such as Swappa, rather than to a trade-in service such as ours. But the problem with selling on Swappa is that you are expected to ship within two days of receiving the payment for the phone.

Now, Stopoint.com pays you after receiving the phone, but here you are guaranteed a 30-day lock-in on the price. You can ship the phone any time over a 30-day period after receiving a free quote from Stopoint.com, and the price remains the same as the quote that was sent to you – even if the manufacturer slashes prices and your model gets suddenly cheaper during this time. That’s a real advantage to have in an iPhone economy where the prices never say the same for too long.

Plus, you are guaranteed to receive the payment by PayPal within 24-hours after receiving the phone. If you don’t have a PayPal account, that’s fine, a check will be sent to your address within 3 days.

Sure, there are other trade-in services as well. Gazelle.com has been around since 2006 and is an established name in the recommerce industry, but they pay you 7 to 10 days after receiving the phone – which is really slow.

Usell.com is another popular phone trade-in service, but here, your gadgets are bought by someone else, and Usell.com is nothing more than a marketplace – so there is no guarantee that you will get paid on time.

EcoATM is a trade-in service that doesn’t allow people to ship their electronics directly to them. They basically have ATMs in some locations where you can drive to and exchange the phone for money – again, not a great choice.

And here’s the thing – at Stopoint.com, you are given a Price Match Guarantee – we promise that you will get a better price with us than you would with any other company. That’s a big promise to make, but it’s something we have adhered to since the time we’ve been around.

Another big concern many people have about selling their phones is data security. At Stopoint.com, we assure you that we take your data security and privacy extremely seriously. The very first thing we do with every device we receive is to factory-reset them and restore the phones to their original state. So, there’s no question of anyone being able to access your private data – but we strongly recommend that you should erase all the data on the phone yourself before sending it to us.

So, here’s how the whole thing works…SELECT_SHIP_AND_PAY: First, select the product that you want to sell to us on our website and fill up the specific details about the model. Second, you will be sent an instant quote along with a free FedEx shipping label. Then you will have 30 days to ship the product and will get paid instantly within 24 hours via PayPal after we receive it. It really can’t get easier than that!
