Sell it to online marketplaces like eBay, Craiglist, etc.:

The market for used Samsung Galaxy smartphones is massive, and places like eBay, Craigslist, and other sites roar with transactions. You can trade off your old handset directly to a private buyer at such marketplaces.

Though the prices vary here, it is not always as straightforward as some of the options detailed below. Having said that, such places are crowded with buyers, and sometimes the deals could get lucrative too.

You can have an asking price that you wish, and, god willing also potentially get a quick sale. However, be prepared to deal with spammers, time-wasters, and a bit of hassle and logistics in either sending the phone or meeting someone to exchange it for cash.

There are other services and platforms in the used phone category that offer good protection for both sellers and buyers. Such platforms allow free listing but add a sales/service fee to your price.

They do verify photos and check the IMEI to ensure that the handset is not blacklisted and free from any shady history. Ensure that the selling price includes shipping costs and be ready to ship it once you receive a go-ahead.

Trade it for Credit:

If you're open to receiving credit or gifting cards, then there are online marketplaces that offer such propositions.  You just have to key in some details on an online form, or you could also take your phone to a nearby shop for a quick appraisal. Some of the big players that offer such schemes are Walmart, Amazon, Verizon, Gamestop, and Best Buy.

Samsung also has some sort of trade-in deals for people who want to sell Samsung phones.

Sell it to a Company:
