Are you thinking of selling books, iPhones, iPads or your old console online? It helps to have a good idea of what it’s worth before setting a price, even if it’s a Buy It Now option on eBay. Despite list prices, things are really only worth what people are willing to pay and thus you shouldn’t do yourself a disservice by getting it wrong. Flipsy is a new service that specialises in estimating the list price for your wares, as well as offering a few places to sell your item.
The service works by monitoring existing sale prices for iDevices, books and consoles on marketplaces like Craigslist before offering a range of prices to consider. Simply enter the ISBN, model or age of the item and Flipsy does the rest, and in some instances even offers up buy-back services to quickly shift your unwanted gear. These services are likely to be lower than the going rate online, but offer a quick and guaranteed sale if you’re in a hurry.
The service takes into account the model, age and condition as well as item-specifics such as the carrier if your device is locked and then offers two prices – a trade-in price and a private party price. The service is specific to the US in that it’s not possible to choose an unlocked iPhone 5 at this stage and the prices are in US dollars, though it provides a good overview of resale value regardless of where in the world you are.
- Find out what it’s worth before selling for both trade-in and private party sales.
- Works for iPhones, iPads, consoles and books.
- Get instant offers for quick sales.
