A Website Will Pay You For Your Broken Gadgets

Hey, now that’s a worthy venture to look into! Gizmogo is an online used electronic product recycling platform that buys broken phones,tablets, or computers. The Chino, California-based platform is part of a larger recycling company that aims to keep old electronics out of landfills. The question now is what do they do with the old gadgets they buy? Well, Gizmogo actually either refurbishes them or recovers the precious metals inside to be reused: 

The company accepts phones, tablets, laptops, computers, gaming consoles, cameras, lenses, drones, smartwatches and even iPods if you still have one. The website will walk you through a short evaluation process and then give you an estimate for your item. If you accept the estimate, it’s time to send in your gadget. Depending on its size, the website will either generate an instant label you can stick on your box or send you a small box to ship your smartphone in.
I tried the entire service – without informing Gizmogo – with my son’s old iPad Mini. It has a cracked screen and has been sitting unused in my garage for several months. Gizmogo said they would pay me $80.55. I sent the tablet in and about a week later, the cash was in my PayPal account.
Competitors include Gazelle, Swappa and Gylde. Of course, with these instant trade in sites, you will certainly get less for your gadget than you would doing all the hard work yourself and listing it on eBay, but that takes a lot more time and effort. You have to decide what’s best for your situation.
Gizmogo says they typically pay within 24 hours of receipt and evaluation. Keep in mind the initial number is only an estimate and could change based on the condition of your gadget.
