Tech Talk

Selling Smartphones–for you or your clients

Glyde is an online site you can use to sell, buy, or trade in smartphones by Apple and Samsung. I have used this service to sell older iPhones from our team as well as to purchase newer models.

When selling a device, they provide instructions on how to wipe the phone, making it easy for those not super tech-savvy, plus they mail you a shipping box.

You will find purchasing a phone from Glyde will save you a significant amount of money and, if you are not satisfied, you can return it. You can also trade in your devices for cash or credit to use towards the purchase of another device.

This is a great way to help your clients clear out old devices lying around and get some cash at the same time.
