So, the new iPhone 6 is coming out soon and you are looking to upgrade, but first you want to sell your present iPhone in the hopes of getting some money back. But you don’t trust sites like Craigslist or Kijiji because you fear you may be buying a stolen phone. Or you have major trust issues and don’t want to meet a stranger in the corner of a coffee shop trying to negotiate the price. Correct? You have even tried selling it through word of mouth to no avail. Hmm?
Fear no more. Simply downloading a secure app called Orchard could erase all your worries; a market place to buy and sell used iPhones. It also acts as a tool to determine the condition of your phone to help evaluate the price. And once the price is set, the app will have your phone listed on Orchard’s database ready to be sold. So, the in-app tools will do all the work for you, from being your negotiator to that trustworthy friend you have always wanted.
But you being you, still have those trust issues and you wonder how exactly you will have to hand in your phone to the buyer? Well, once the buyer is confirmed, Orchard will send you a pre-paid shipping box with a label of the buyer’s address. So all you have to do is ship your old iPhone to the buyer. And only after the buyer confirms they have received the phone, shall the payment be made.
But hold on. What if the buyer isn’t really happy with the phone they just purchased because they didn’t get a chance to see it first hand? Is it bad luck Brian? Fortunately not. Every purchase comes with a 30-day warranty. This means if anything goes wrong with the phone up to 30 days after it arrives, or the buyer is simply unsatisfied, they can return the phone to Orchard and will be refunded every penny of their purchase. Moreover, shipping is free and if you are buying, you can expect your purchase to arrive within a week. This service is available only in Canada at the moment and will soon be available in the United States.
