“The biggest demand for refurbished smartphones is from the younger generation who are also aspirational but when it comes to budget it is around INR 8,000 to INR 15,000. What we bring to the table is a refurbished mobile with a 6-month guarantee,” said Manocha A well-known brand in the market and a popular option for buying and selling used refurbished smartphones is Cashify. Simply sign up, select the device you wish to sell, and you’re ready to sell your phone. Cashify sends an agent to the seller’s house to perform diagnostic checks before paying them cash on the spot for the product.
Cashify completes this process by first purchasing the mobile phone and doing minor repairs when needed. The used phones are then sold across India to customers who want to buy secondhand phones or to companies that give phones to their employees. More than 150,000 used smartphones are currently purchased each month on the platform. The market for used smartphones in India was estimated by IDC to be worth $2.3 billion.
