When selling an iPhone 12, it pays to check your options. Online stores often pay 30-50% more than carrier and in store trade in options, plus you get cash not store credit.
The true value of an iPhone 12 also depends on its condition and specifications like capacity, carrier etc. Unlocked phones and phones on the Verizon network typically have the most value but prices do not vary by much. The most important factor will be the cosmetic and operational condition of your device. Of course, the better the condition the more money in your pocket, but the companies we search will even purchase broken devices!
iPhone values depreciate by around 40% over one year, but that rate jumps to 75% over three years. At the same time, values for old iPhone models drop by 15% or more after a new flagship is released. That means you should sell as soon as possible to get the most money for your used iPhone.
Sending your phone to an online buyback store is convenient since you'll get a free printable shipping label and payments are speedy since they are sent within 3 days of delivery.

With so many options for selling, how do you determine which is best? There isn't a single correct answer, it just depends on what's most important to you. You'll want to consider payment times, convenience, and the actual payout.
Do you need the money fast? If this is the case, try a local option like a pawnshop or phone repair shop but expect to get 50% less than offers on Flipsy.
If you're after every last dollar, then consider listing in a marketplace like eBay or Swappa. Yes, you'll typically get a little more cash with this method, but don't forget that there's no guarantee that your phone will sell and you'll have to pay listing fees as well.
With Flipsy, you'll receive a free quote, a prepaid shipping label, and payment within 1-3 days of the store receiving your phone. Your guaranteed sale with Flipsy offers top-tier payouts via PayPal, check, eCheck, Venmo, and CashApp and there's no obligation should you change your mind!
Oh yes. You can always consider donating your phone. Here are some options for that.
