Where to Sell a Phone in Albany, OR
Flipsy Local – Albany StoresOn Flipsy.com, local buyers list the prices they’ll pay for your phone. You can compare each phone price to see who is paying the most, then sell to your selected buyer. Some buyers will meet you at a location you choose, while others have physical storefronts you can visit. Local buyers pay an average of 30% more than most carriers and 68% more than ecoATM. For example, at the time of this writing you could sell an iPhone X for $547 via Flipsy Local, but you’d only get $370 from AT&T and $325 from ecoATM. A Galaxy S8 would go for $218 on Flipsy Local versus $160 from AT&T and $75 from ecoATM. When you compare offers on Flipsy, you’ll also see pricing from online buyback companies (typically the best prices you can get) so you can see how local offers stack up.

Albany Phone Repair ShopsYou can sell your phone to a local repair shop like Spinware at Heritage Mall. Typically, repair shops offer payouts that are similar to ecoATM – which is to say they often pay considerably less than what you can get by selling your phone to a buyback store. Some repair shops do offer higher payouts on par with what you can get from a Flipsy Local buyer, but you’ll need to do the legwork to contact each one until you find a comparable phone value. Stores may have difficulty giving you an accurate quote over the phone since they’ll want to determine the condition of your device – a process that can take 20 to 30 minutes.
