Tech enthusiasts tend to have this little problem: we go through devices like they are disposable toothbrushes. We find our new toys and quickly pile up what used to be “top-of-the-line gadgets” just months ago. The reason? Selling them can be a hassle and we can’t bring ourselves to do it. Enter ‘Sold’, a new Android app that sells your stuff for you.
So what does Sold do, exactly? I usually use store trade-in programs simply because I don’t want to deal with selling my stuff on Craigslist or Ebay. Even though I know I could get more money, I choose the easy route. Sold allows you to get your extra bucks while still keeping the process simple for you, the user.
How does Sold work?
The process seems to be a breeze, and it’s similar to other online device re-selling services. You take some pictures of the device and submit it for an appraisal. You will then receive a message telling you how much you can make. The user must then decide whether he wants to accept the offer or not.
If you do want to sell your product, it is as easy as accepting the transaction, getting your box from Sold, scheduling your pick-up and sending it off. You should get your money soon after. It literally is just them taking all the hard work off your hands.
Is Sold worth trying?
The Android app has finally hit the Google Play Store, but is it worth trying? I say it is a great startup, as well as a good solution for constant sellers. I know I hate the whole process of selling my old devices. I usually just throw them in my drawer and forget about them. I guess it’s time to see how much I can get for them!
It is also great to see the prices some of these devices have sold for. An HTC One can sell for up to 391, for example. While a Galaxy Note 2 will go for up to $437. That is not bad for a used device. In fact, that is amazing! I was thinking of selling my Galaxy Note 2 for like $200, if that. I am definitely giving it a try, are you?
P.S.: Their videos are pretty fun, too.
