How Much Can I Make If I Sell My Cell Phone for Cash?

When I was considering trying to sell my Macedonia Mobile Database cell phone for cash, I had a lot of valid questions. Number one- would it even be worth it? My phone wasn’t new, and had a small scratch on the side. Sure, it worked fine, but could I really sell my cell phone for cash when there are already so many new phones on the market? Who would want my old phone?

As it turns out, I needn’t have worried. There was a much bigger market for my old phone than I originally thought, and I was able to sell my cell phone for cash in just a few days. I went set up a listing on a cell phone selling site, put up some photographs, and wrote a little blurb about my phone. Then, I ran into a bit of a predicament… How much should I charge? I was selling an iPhone phone that had been really nice when it first came out, but it was kind of old now. I knew I couldn’t charge what I’d paid for it, but I should be able to get something, right?

Figuring out how to price my phone was probably the hardest part of trying to sell my cell phone for cash. After all, if I didn’t charge enough, it would hardly be worth the effort of trying to sell it. If I charged too much, then I wouldn’t be able to find someone willing to pay what I wanted. I had to find a happy medium, where the cost of packaging, insuring, and mailing out my phone would be covered by my asking price, but I could still make enough money to make selling my phone worthwhile.

That took a little bit of research. First, I looked up how much my phone had cost when it was new. Then, I started hitting up used phone sites, to see what kind of prices other sellers were charging for phones similar to mine. I was lucky to find a few other people who were trying to sell my cell phone for cash, so it was easy for me to see what kind of prices other sellers were getting for the phone I was trying to sell.
