Final Thought

If you are exchanging your old phone with a new one with a big e-commerce website, you don’t want to think about the deal. You have to arrange the phone to give it to the pickup agent to get your new phone. If the phone is an Apple device you will definitely get more if you sell it directly. But it includes some risk, you have to find out the right person to offer you the right price, you can sell it directly through some electronic shops or through some servicing centers offering an exchange of old phones. You can post your listings with expecting price in an online marketplace website and wait for the response, if not get enough response, you can adjust the price and once you get some good deals try to complete it to secure your profit, as the time passes the price may drop further and may lose your profit. It is the worst idea to keep it an unused item for a long time, as time passes, newer and newer models come on the market and the price of the older models drops. There is a chance to get the battery damaged if it does not care well.
