BuyBackWorld buys more than 30,000 different products between 25 categories. They also provide custom quotes for products not listed on their site. How BuyBackWorld works
  1. Search or browse for your device and answer a few questions about its capacity, carrier and condition (if applicable)
  2. BuyBackWorld will give you an instant offer. Accept the offer, and you can either print a free shipping label or request a free shipping kit, which includes a label, box and packing materials
  3. Package and ship your device via USPS
  4. BuyBackWorld pays via your choice of check, direct deposit, PayPal, prepaid debit card or BuyBackWorld gift card within 2 days of receiving and inspecting your device (you can get an extra 5% in trade-in value if you choose the gift card option)

Note that BuyBackWorld also buys devices in bulk. Prices are locked in for 30 days, so you have a month to ship your items after you receive a quote. If BuyBackWorld finds your phone to be in a different condition than you specified, they’ll submit a revised quote. If you reject the quote, they’ll ship your device back free-of-charge.
