We Connect Large Scale Supply with Global Demand

With the second hand market for used smartphones becoming an increasingly important part of the global smartphone ecosystem, we have optimized our operations to reflect the market needs of both our suppliers and customers.

We Sell Cellular maintains its R2 Certified Facility in Edgewood, New York. Through relationships cultivated for over a decade, we source product directly from top tier carriers, retailers, and manufacturers. Once received, these products undergo a stringent triage and grading process, and are then distributed to our diverse client base according to each customer's specific requirements.

Our Process

  • Purchasing

    • We source new and used devices directly from carrier trade-in programs, big box retailers, and manufacturers
    • Buying in bulk directly from the source ensures a consistent supply of devices at competitive prices
    • The mix of inventory we purchase reflects not only recent consumer trade-in trends, but the market demand expressed by our diverse client base
  • Triage and Grading

    • All received devices are serialized and all personal data is destroyed according to R2 standards
    • All devices are tested for functionality using our 45 point checklist to ensure consistency
    • Minor repairs are carried out to extract the maximum value from each device
    • Following testing, all devices are cleaned, visually inspected, and graded based on our stringent cosmetic grading criteria
    • 10% of devices are randomly selected for QC to ensure strict quality standards
    Grading Scale
  • Resale / Recycle

    • After triage and grading, devices are prepared for resale
    • Devices are kitted and shipped based on customer requirements
    • Devices that are deemed unfit for resale are recycled responsibly and in compliance with R2 standards for data destruction and environmental stewardship
