About BuyBack

BuyBack is Back Market’s trade-in service and our key asset to close the loop of the circular economy. It allows consumers to sell back their used devices to our refurbishers, working as a C2B marketplace.

The BuyBack is embedded into our B2C experience: when customers shop on BackMarket, they are offered a price discount on the product they are buying if they sell back their old device (smartphone, tablet, console, airpods etc.). Customers who only want to sell their devices will get cash from the sale.

This service is a strategic pillar for Back Market, as it enables us to source supply for our marketplace sellers, the refurbishers, while offering customers a differentiated experience.
