Tech Updates: Know the common mistakes people makw while selling old phone!


Old Phone Selling: If you make this mistake while selling an old phone, then rest assured that you will not be offered a good deal by the buyer. In such a situation, today we are going to tell you about 5 such mistakes, which become a hindrance in getting you a good deal. 


Forgetting to erase data: The most common mistake is forgetting to erase all your data from the phone. This may include photos, contacts, messages, and banking information. After purchasing the phone, the buyer will have to do this work himself, in such a situation he will have trouble clearing the space due to which he will not be able to offer a good deal. 

Keeping the wrong price: The second mistake is keeping the wrong price. If you price too high, no one will buy the phone, and if you price too low, you will lose money.

Right way: Check the prices of similar phones in online marketplaces and decide your price accordingly. 

Hiding the status of the phone: The third mistake is to hide the bad status of the phone. If the phone has scratches, dents, or broken parts, please let the buyer know. If you hide these things, the buyer may refund you later or demand less money.

The right way: Be honest and give an accurate description of the phone's condition. You can also take photos of scratches or dents.

Taking payment in an insecure manner: The fourth mistake is taking payment in an insecure manner. Use online payment or be careful while taking cash. 

Right way: If you are selling online, use reputable payment gateways. If you are taking cash, meet in a public place during the transaction and count the money before taking it.

Not vetting the buyer: The fifth mistake is not vetting the buyer. If you are selling the phone to a stranger, be sure to get their identity and contact information. 

Best practice: If possible, ask the buyer for proof of their identity (like an Aadhaar card or driving license). Also, write down their name and contact information.

By avoiding these mistakes, you can sell your old phone safely and easily and get a good deal.
