“We are excited to provide consumers with more confidence and visibility into the quality of devices sold on Swappa through our comprehensive device certification process,” said Jax Futrell, director of operations at Phonecheck. “Swappa was one of the first marketplaces to recognize the need for security and simplicity when buying used devices. Our partnership further reinforces this shared mission to bring trust and transparency to buyers and sellers of used phones.

While Swappa’s stringent SEO requirements mean buyers always get fully functional devices, ready to activate and free of cracked screens or water damage, Phonecheck provides data-driven validation through its process of device certification. Many sellers on Swappa thoroughly test and certify devices with Phonecheck before listing to ensure devices are in good working order with no functional issues.

“Bringing pre-owned phone certification to market is a win-win. Making this process more visible gives sellers credit for the attention to detail and work they are already doing. We believe that buyers appreciate knowing that their device has undergone this type of testing, we show the Phonecheck badge on certified listings,” said Ben EdwardsFounder and CEO of Swappa.

The market for used device sales continues to grow, registering a 15% increase in 2021 against a 4.5% growth in new smartphone shipments according to Counterpoint Research. Global forces such as ongoing supply chain issues and inflation are fueling increased interest in used technology. As the market grows, the need for third-party validation will also increase to build trust.

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