“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.

The market for the sale of used devices continues to grow, registering a 15% increase in 2021 versus a 4.5% growth in new smartphone shipments, according to Counterpoint Research. 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.

Phonecheck has established itself as an efficient and reliable way for sellers to quickly diagnose and prepare used phones for sale. Phonecheck’s test suite is fully automated and can test multiple Apple or Android devices at the same time – up to 40 devices per hour. Rigorous testing helps identify defective devices prior to sale, resulting in fewer RMAs and reduced overhead. Upon completion of testing, devices are securely erased in accordance with ADISA accredited data removal standards and a Phonecheck device history report is generated to confirm all tested data points. Look for the Phonecheck logo in listings to view devices with Phonecheck’s comprehensive device history report, including diagnostic information, carrier status, repair history and more.
