Effective immediately, Swappa customers will see the Phonecheck certification badge on Enterprise and Power Seller listings that have passed the certification company’s rigorous diagnostic and certified data erasure process, and can also filter listings on the Marketplace for Phonecheck-verified devices. This will give shoppers extra confidence in their purchases as Swappa makes it easier for consumers to view devices that have undergone extensive testing and quality checks that confirm carrier status, battery health and more.
“We are excited to offer consumers greater confidence and visibility into the quality of devices sold on Swappa through our comprehensive device certification process,” he said Jax Futrell, Chief Operating Officer at Phonecheck. “Swappa was one of the first marketplaces to recognize the need for security and simplicity when buying used equipment. Our partnership reinforces this shared mission of bringing confidence and transparency to buyers and sellers of used phones.”
While Swappa’s strict listing requirements mean buyers always receive fully functional devices, ready for activation and free from cracked screens or water damage, Phonecheck offers data-driven validation through its device certification process. Many sellers on Swappa thoroughly test and certify devices with Phonecheck before listing them to ensure the devices are in good working order with no functional issues.
“Bringing used phone certification to market is a win-win situation. Making this process more visible gives sellers credit for the attention to detail and work they are already doing. We believe buyers appreciate that their device has undergone this type of testing, so we believe displaying the Phonecheck badge on certified listings,” said Ben EdwardsFounder and CEO of Swappa.

Global forces such as ongoing supply chain issues and inflation are fueling interest in used technology. As the market grows, so does the need for third-party validation to build trust.
