PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Direct Textbook, a leading
college textbook buy-sell-rent search engine, today announced the launch of
Flipsy.com, a free web service that helps consumers sell used iPhones, iPads,
video game consoles and books for the highest possible prices. Flipsy.com lets
users instantly compare real-time buyback and trade-in offers from dozens of
buyers, so it's easy to see which company has the best device buyback deals.
Flipsy.com users can sell their old devices immediately or sign up to be
alerted when offers meet their price points. Consumers can also set their own
prices to sell in the Flipsy.com marketplace.
"U.S. consumers are sitting on billions of dollars in used iPhones, iPads,
video game consoles and other devices, and many don't know what their old
devices are worth or where to sell them. Flipsy.com bridges the gap between
sellers and buyers by helping sellers instantly identify the best offer for
their old devices," said Morgan MacArthur, Flipsy.com Chief Technology
Officer. "Flipsy.com is the fastest and easiest way to get the most cash out
of old iPhones, iPads, video game consoles and books."
Flipsy.com users can instantly compare prices for iPhones, iPads, books,
Xboxes, Nintendo Wiis, Sony Playstations and even older gaming systems such as
N64 and SEGA Game Gear. To cash in, users select their device, mark its
condition and features, then compare price offers from a buyer list that
includes Amazon, Technollo, BuyBackWorld and Ebay. If they like an offer, they
can click "sell" to complete the sale on the buyer's website. Payments are
made via check, PayPal or store credit, depending on the buyer and offer.
Sellers can also compare trade-in value versus private party market value,
based on real-world private party sales data aggregated from popular online
marketplaces such as Craigslist. An iPhone 4S 16GB in good condition, for
example, can net $200 or more on the trade-in block; but it might be worth
twice as much if sold via private party.
Automatic email price updates alert sellers when offers increase, and users
can alternatively set their own prices and sell to other consumers in the
"It's a tough economy and people are on the lookout for fast and easy ways to
turn their old stuff into cash, but that doesn't mean they should sell for
less than their items are worth," said MacArthur. "For those with used
iPhones, iPads, video game consoles and books, Flipsy.com is the quickest way
to get fair market value and sell for the most possible cash."
