Sourcing trade-in devices for resale? Not all B2B channels are created equal
Continuous technology upgrades combined with the explosion of cell phone buyback, trade-in and refurbishing programs have created a robust secondary market for wireless devices. Consider this: the average person upgrades their phone every 22 months, most likely leveraging one of the thousands of cell phone trade-in programs available. Whether traded in to a mom-and-pop shop or sent back to a major wireless carrier, the majority of these devices will end up being sold in bulk. This presents a great opportunity for wireless retailers to obtain quality secondhand devices for resale.
