Swappa is the virtual flea market for Android phones

Swappa is the virtual flea market for Android phones
If you are not the Craigslist or eBay type, Swappa comes as a good alternative to sell your trusted old Android device you've already gotten bored with as new monsters get announced every few month now.

Swappa is a website that deals strictly with that - selling your Android phone - for a $10 fee. You can fill in every picayune detail about the condition of your handset in the form provided and publish it to be matched to willing buyers searching for an exact handset up to their budget.

The website says it only takes phones with clean ID numbers, i.e. not reported lost or stolen, fully functional, and without signs of water damage or screen cracks. 

The buyer can ask questions and get answers from the seller in a dedicated forum for the device at question, which is also moderated by admins, who can step in if any issues arise later with the description, leaning back on the Q&A exchange. Last year the service sold $0.5 million worth of Android phones, this year it's gunning for a million.

I've got ripped off this site. Buyers beware ! Kid sold me a phone and when I received it - it was broken and swappa didn't help at all! Swappa let crooks and seller get away with murder. Proof in the puttin - check out feedback from buyers " Refunded buyer rather than fulfill sale. Ben Edwards (Swappa) is a Swappa staff member... Refunded buyer rather than fulfill sale. Ben Edwards (Swappa) is a Swappa staff member... " TOTAL WASTE. BUYER BE WARE - SCAMMER ARE RUNING THIS SITE AND SWAPPA ALLOWS THEM TO RULE.

I've buying and selling on swappa for 3 years now and never had an issue. You should have used PayPals buyer remorse clause and returned the item once you saw that it's wasn't what you wanted. Simple fix bro.
