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 for 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.
