LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 18, 2022 - Phonecheck, the most trusted used mobile device certification provider, today announced a new partnership with eBay to serve as a provider of refurbished mobile device certification for one of the largest refurbished device marketplaces in the world. The partnership furthers eBay’s position as a third-party phone resale leader in trust and security, backed by Phonecheck’s industry leading device certification and buyback guarantee.
eBay Refurbished shoppers will have even more confidence in the smartphones they select from eBay’s thoroughly vetted and trusted top-rated sellers knowing that they have also been tested and certified through Phonecheck’s rigorous 80-point diagnostic and certified data-wipe process, accredited by the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA). Phonecheck-certified devices come with the company’s exclusive Device History Report, providing precise details on the device’s authenticity, full functionality, ownership status, carrier information, repair history and more. This certification from Phonecheck comes on top of the extensive protections included with every eBay Refurbished product, such as leading one- or two-year Allstate warranties, free shipping, eBay Money Back Guarantee and free 30-day returns.
“Our mission is to bring trust and transparency to the pre-owned mobile device market for buyers, sellers and the marketplaces where they do business,” said Jax Futrell, COO of Phonecheck. “We’re thrilled to partner with eBay to build even more trust into their eBay Refurbished experience by giving shoppers the additional confidence that comes with buying a Phonecheck-certified device.”
The new certification option launches this month for US-based eBay Refurbished phone sellers, with a view for additional regions to follow shortly. The digital integration marries the stringent quality requirements of eBay Refurbished with secure certification data, verified by Phonecheck, to inform sellers of each device’s condition grade or the reason a device has failed to meet requirements. Phonecheck’s all-in-one, device-agnostic, enterprise-grade solution is fast and fully integrated to ensure speed, accuracy and security for high-volume processing. Sellers who are interested in joining the eBay Refurbished program can apply within eBay’s Seller Center under the eBay Refurbished Program section.
The refurbished phone market is forecasted to grow – hitting a worldwide industry value of $65 billion by 2024. As more sellers enter the market, consumers are looking for regulated, industry-wide standards for quality and authenticity. As competition increases, sellers are looking for ways to differentiate, build trust, increase sales and generate more revenue per device. That’s why companies like eBay partner with Phonecheck to provide additional certification options to the resale transaction.
