At Price.com we provide the most comprehensive buying options from new to used to rental to offline merchants. Today we are excited to announce our partnership with UpTrade to provide certified used phones.
1 billion smartphones have been sold in the U.S. in the last six years, 700 million of them weren’t reused or recycled. Price.com and UpTradeit.com have built a platform that enables people to find tech at affordable prices, while reducing the growing problem of e-waste.
UpTradeit.com offers a 50+ point inspection, 1 year warranty, and a 30 day money back guarantee on all used and refurbished devices. UpTrade takes detailed photos of each device so users can easily see the condition of the phone they are buying. Additionally, UpTrade Protection is an option they provide to cover accidental damage giving buyers total confidence in their purchase.

We have built a technology that, for the first time, allows us to seamlessly match a new product to a used product. We are excited to expand our partnership with UpTrade through certified used phones.” said RJ JAIN, Price.com Founder and CEO.
“To make it safe and easy, we thoroughly test and background-check every phone to make sure it’s of good quality. We also go the extra step providing actual photos and detailed notes for each phone.

We are very excited about the partnership with Price.com to support us in scaling our mission” – said Marco Mai, UpTrade Head of Operations.

UpTradeit.com reinvents the way people buy and sell used smartphones.
For sellers, UpTrade removes the pain of dealing with potential scammers, spending time creating product listings, and waiting for the device to sell in order to receive payment. Sellers get paid up front once UpTrade receives and inspects the device.
For buyers, UpTrade conducts a 50+ point inspection on every device to ensure it works like new. Then they take photos of the device so the buyer can see for themselves the condition of each individual phone. This ensures buyers get exactly what they are expecting. UpTrade is so confident in their process that they provide a 30-day money-back guarantee.
UpTrade’s mission is to make technology affordable; to empower the world by extending the life of used electronics through the hands of others. UpTrade is committed to providing a safe and trustworthy service for everyone.
