Flipkart Sell Back Program gives your used smartphones a new life — and great value for you

Wondering what to do with your old smartphone? Flipkart’s Sell Back Program is an intuitive solution that enables customers to efficiently sell their old smartphones for the right buy-back value. The process is quick and easily accessible through the mobile app ecosystem. What’s more, it promotes sustainability by reducing e-waste. Read on to know more.


With Flipkart’s new Sell Back Program, you can now get the best value for your old and used smartphones.

The new, made-for-India feature on the Flipkart e-commerce platform provides access to a reliable buy-back service that enables you to trade in your old device while receiving the right buy-back value in your bank account or via a Flipkart Electronic Gift Voucher. The best part? You can even sell back old smartphones that were not purchased on Flipkart.

The initiative, following Flipkart’s acquisition of re-commerce company Yaantra, also tackles the escalating issue of e-waste, ensuring that, rather than the landfill, old smartphones can find their way into the refurbished market while contributing towards a circular economy. According to an IDC 2021 report around 100 million smartphones were left unused and idle at home in 2020. The Sell Back program helps create a seamless ecosystem for used-smartphone sellers and value-seeking shoppers alike.

Step 3: Choose the appropriate smartphone brand and model from the list

Step 7: Confirm the request and await the pickup of your old smartphone. On completing the process, you will receive the right buy-back value in your bank account or via a Flipkart Electronic Gift Voucher.
