The iPhone 8 was the 11th generation of the iPhone and it was launched in September 2017. Three years might not be a long period of time, but in the world of smartphones a lot can change in three years. Statistics show that people generally tend to replace their old phones with newer versions after two years or even less, so if you have an old iPhone 8, you are logically asking yourself – how to sell my iPhone 8? And we’re going to help you with that, there are few options how and where to sell an old phone.
Sell your iPhone 8 locally
First, you can sell it directly to a potential buyer from your local area. Perhaps some of your neighbors, friends or co-workers would be interested in your old iPhone 8. While most people like to buy new phones, as carriers nowadays offer very good conditions where you can be paying for your new phone over the course of multiple months or a year or two. However, there are people who are not interested in a new smartphone, and they would prefer a used one at a lower price.
This is not the simplest, nor the most convenient option though. You will need to find the right buyer and you will need to negotiate a price. And negotiating with a friend, or a coworker might not be the most convenient experience for either of you.
So, perhaps we should look at some of the other options.
Sell it on a peer to peer platform
You can always sell your phone via a platform that allows peer to peer sales of used electronic devices, or use a regular social network where you can find lots of groups that people use to find people, preferably in their local area, who are buying and selling devices, including smartphones.
This is more convenient, but there are no guarantees as to how fast you’ll be able to find a buyer for your phone. The interested buyer might still try to negotiate a better price and if you’re selling via a social network there’s always the issue of logistics, i.e. how are you going to send your phone to the potential buyer and who will guarantee that the price will be paid in full, or at all. So, if you are willing to take that risk, this option can be the answer to your question – how to sell my iPhone 8.
