Review:

Like TheWhizCells, ItsWorthMore is in the business of buying and reselling used cell phones, tablets and a limited number of other electronic devices. The site provides an instant quote based on your device’s model and condition; emails the appropriate postage; and pays promptly. 

Consumer complaints mainly revolved around getting less than described on the site, however, often for a good reason. For instance, several consumers noted that ItsWorthMore cut their offered price after receiving a cell phone. But these consumers also acknowledged that the glass on these devices had been replaced. ItsWorthMore responded that anytime a screen is replaced, the site considers it a “refurbished” phone, which significantly reduces the value.

Replaced screens didn’t appear to be as much of an issue with other sites. So if you’ve had a screen replacement, you may want to sell elsewhere. Otherwise, this site appears to offer some of the highest prices you’ll find with resale sites. Other good resellers are MaxBack and TheWhizCells.

However, if you don’t mind taking the time to sell your electronics directly to other consumers, you are likely to get a better price selling through Swappa.

What their users say: (From the Better Business Bureau)

“Amazing service from beginning to end. I started the process April 18th, and had my check in the bank by the 29th. They quoted me the most I could have expected for my iPhone 6 Plus and that quote did not change after the evaluation. You just need to be honest and forthright with the condition of your phone. Highly recommend and will definitely use them in the future.”

I did a lot of price comparison online and I am so glad I chose them. They offered, by far, the most money for my Macbook. I requested packaging and a box to send it to them, and they sent it out to me in just a few days. The service was friendly and the turn around was quick.

“I can’t give them high enough praise. I spent some time looking at various websites for the best buy back price of my iPhone 6S Plus. They offered $267, the next highest was around $225. So I mailed in my phone and waited a few days for their evaluation. They email back and tell me they felt there was one minor discrepancy with my phone. I had a nice back and forth email conversation with them, and I told them that the screen was in excellent shape, battery worked perfectly, phone was only 9 months old, and that I was very hopeful they could overlook the small issue. They did! 

“Did not find them honest. They lowered my price about 60% once I sent it in by saying I replaced the screen on the phone. The phone was in great condition and I did replace the screen at the phone store. It worked great. I feel they should have asked that question in the appraisal process and I should not find out after I sent it. I told them to send it back because I feel it is a gimmick.”

“Awesome business! I submitted two ipads, one old and one broken. Due to my ignorance I claimed my older ipad was an even older model than it was, they were honest enough to tell me and increased my offer! I would definitely recommend them…the fact that I got anything for my broken ipad was nice, but catching my error in the model selection shows true integrity.”

 “When my MacBook Pro was evaluated they decreased the quoted amount because of an issue with the screen. I gave the laptop a thorough review before I sent it and the issue was not present. They offered no photos or proof of the issue, I ended up giving in because the laptop was already in their possession. “
