Flipsy aims to be the Kayak of phone and tablet sales, seamlessly comparing prices from multiple sites that would be willing to purchase your used technology. 

There are no fees or commissions to shop. You plug in the information about what you want to sell; the site shows what a variety of other sites are offering. If you like the offers, click on one and you’ll be sent to that site. Flipsy makes its money from referral fees. The site says it has investigated each vendor to ensure that they’re reputable and pay promptly.  

We found no negative seller reviews of Flipsy, which lists prices from some of the more reputable sellers including TheWhizCells. However, we also found some instances where you could get a bit more by going directly to a reseller. This isn’t a terrible place to shop your electronics, but you check other sites including TheWhizCells, ItsWorthMore and MaxBack, before you make a deal. 

What experts say: 

In absence of seller reviews, we looked for professional reviews, of which there were several — all positive. This is from IGeeksBlog, which seemed to sum them up nicely:

“If you’re planning to sell your iPhone/iPad, and want no hassles and risks along the way, you should try Flipsy.com. Oh, by the way, they also deal with a bucket load of other gadgets like Samsung, Nokia, HTC, LG smartphones, game consoles, books, Mac, BlackBerry etc.”
