Our site is a convenient option for consumers to easily trade-in Apple and Android devices as well as purchase certified pre-owned devices at a fraction of the cost of new through the Gazelle Direct Store.

- Selling – Consumers looking to trade-in their devices can feel confident they are getting the best price. Look up your specific device in our catalog, answer a few quick questions about its condition, and then lock in your price. The quote provided is good for 30 days, so you have time to think about it and transition to a new device before sending the old one in. We send you the packaging and pay for shipping so all you have to do is put the box back in the mail. Once the device is received, we’ll inspect it and if your description matches, we’ll send you your payment in the manner you selected (Amazon Gift Card, PayPal or check). In fact, if your device arrives at our warehouse and the value increases, we’ll even pay the difference.
- Buying – For consumers looking to purchase certified pre-owned devices, Gazelle’s online marketplace offers many devices to meet consumer needs, including iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones, iPads, and MacBooks. You choose the specific device, condition and even if it is unlocked or tied to a carrier.
