Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sell my iPhone 5 on eBay?

Firstly, identify the exact make and model of your iPhone 5. Then, find its original packaging (if you still have it) and gather any accessories, cases or parts that came boxed with it. This should include at least a handset and a charger. If you don't have the charger, please make sure to include that in the description of your listing.

Make sure your iPhone 5 is ready for sale by restoring factory settings and removing any personal data from its internal memory and/or external memory card. Back up any photos, music, videos and other important data that you want to keep.

Once you have removed all data from your iPhone 5, be sure to make it look as clean and like-new as possible - remove any stickers or decals and clean it with a screen wipe.

Once you are satisfied with the condition of the phone, you are ready to start making your listing. It's important to be as accurate and honest with your item description as possible: is it brand new or second hand? Is it unlocked? Does it come with all of its original contents? This is all useful information for potential buyers.

How can I find out how much my iPhone 5 is worth?

Search for the make, model and condition of your iPhone 5 on eBay. This will give you a good idea of how much other similar handsets are selling for.

If you have a specific price in mind for your iPhone 5, you may want to choose the fixed-price listing option over an auction-style listing. You never know though: an auction listing could fetch more than your original estimate, so experiment with your listings and see which method is more successful.

Once you have provided the item description, you will see a recommended price, which can be a good indication of how much your iPhone 5 is worth.
