Have an old iPhone 8 and you want to know where to sell it?
The iPhone 8 was launched back in 2017 and while that’s not long ago, it is understandable that you would like to switch to a newer version, so you are now wondering, where to sell my iPhone 8? Let us give you the short answer first, and then we will explain how it works.
The iPhone 8 was discontinued, but this year Apple started selling refurbished iPhone 8 models, at a starting price of $339. But you are not interested in buying a new iPhone 8, you would like to get rid of your old one, so let’s see what options are at your disposal.
Can I sell it directly to an interested buyer
We will assume that your iPhone 8 is in a relatively good condition, seen as it is less than three years old. There might be a few people interested in buying an old phone that is still functional, especially an iPhone. You can of course try to sell it directly to the potential buyer, that is if you manage to find a potential buyer. You can try to advertise it locally or ask your friends if they are interested know someone who is interested.
This involves talking to a lot of people, but there’s always social media, they are your friend when you want to sell something. This might seem like the simplest and the easiest option. But finding someone who will be interested and meet your price expectations might not be as simple. Firstly, people who buy old and used phones usually try to buy them for a very low price, pretty much next to nothing. So if you’re hoping to get a decent price, you might look at some other options. Not to mention that there’s also the issue of payment that you need to take into consideration.
Namely, if the buyer is going to pay you in cash, the two of you need to live nearby, or one of you or both should be ready to travel in order to complete the transaction. If it’s going to be a bank transfer or a credit card payment, the issue of security emerges – how can you be certain that he or she will pay and how can the buyer be certain that you will send him or her the phone. Perhaps this is not the best answer to the question where to sell my iPhone 8, so let us present you with another option.
