Getting an iPhone 6? Why You Should Sell Your Old iPhone on eBay
By: eBay Inc. Editors
Hundreds of thousands of people are preparing to trade in their old smartphones for a new model as the September 19 release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus approaches. Jeff Somers, vice president of Verticals for eBay Marketplaces North America, said in a recent interview on Bloomberg West.
On eBay, sellers can expect to make approximately $100 to $300 more on the sale of their old phones than by trading them in or selling on competitor sites.
“eBay has always been recognized as a destination for consumer electronics,” Somers told Bloomberg. “It’s also THE best place to sell your phone. We sell almost 600,000 cellphones a month.”
