How to #SellMyPhone on eBay - Evolved Mommy
One of the things I get asked a lot is how we sell our iPhones on eBay. My husband is the pro, and generally we get every new iPhone when it is launched at little to no cost because we sell our old phones at exactly the right time.
Until now this process has pretty much been a mystery to me because Steve gets the art & science eBay listing optimization in a way that I don’t.
However, eBay has launched a Stephanie-friendly #SellMyPhone tool designed specifically for you to sell your iphone (or other smartphone), complete with guides that show you how to determine exactly which phone you have because even I had forgotten whether I had a 5 or 5s.
This new tool even shows you the “Buy It Now” price and the auction list price. For example, my phone is worth $365 in “good” condition, $349 in “fair” condition and $270 for “parts and repair”. Not bad.
I didn’t even bother checking the “excellent” condition price because… come on. We all know that’s not true.
How much is your smartphone worth right now? Go try it out.
We are halfway between annual iPhone launches (or so we assume), so if you need a new phone or want to try a different model, you might as well do it now. Otherwise, you’ve got six months to wait for the next shiny object.
Steve said the ideal time to sell is one month prior (so… August-ish) or in the week immediately following launch to get the most money, but you have to have an upgrade available and possibly a phone you can use in the interim.
