EBay does charge for shipping so be sure to add shipping fees in the ads most buyers won’t mind paying shipping if you’re giving them a good deal on their phone.

- Take a photo of your phone at all angles so you have a record of its condition before sending it to the recycler. Phones in bad condition will be bought for less than those in perfect condition. So it’s important to have an accurate record of your phones condition before sending it.
- If your phone some major damages such as broken screen it may be worth the time to get it repaired as you will get more for a phone with a fully functioning screen than a damaged one you may still make a profit look for quotes online to see how much repairing your screen costs.
