Fee increases kinda suck. But you know what sucks more? Seeing millions of people sell their device on eBay (with substantially higher fees) or to Gazelle (where they pay you about half of what it's worth) simply because they've never heard of Swappa.

Swappa's competitors are huge and numerous. And they spend most of their money (millions and millions of dollars) on marketing instead of providing a better service.

Our expenses go primarily towards hiring people to provide amazing customer service and moderation that keeps the marketplace safe. People. About 2/3 of our small staff is support and moderation.

Swappa has never done any big marketing; we don't have millions and millions of dollars. This small fee increase won't change either of those things. But slightly higher fees, which are still much less than our competitors', does mean that we can continue to invest more in improving our service and finding creative ways to spread the word about Swappa.

Swappa's fees are still simple, transparent, and nominal. Our services are still an incredible value.

Thanks for using +Swappa.

NEW CATEGORIES & TIERED FEES

In the last six years of operating Swappa, we’ve never raised prices. We’ve had a flat $10 sale fee since the launch in December of 2010. Beginning November 1, 2016 our sale fees will start at $5 and be tiered based on the value of the device sold.

As we add additional product lines like Chromebooks, VR and MacBooks, tiered pricing will help us continue to provide the best marketplace, best community, and best support. As always our fees will be simple, transparent, and lower than all of our known competitors.

Please visit https://goo.gl/e6zUHt to review the details of this change. Our support staff is always here to help, 24/7/365. Please contact us at help@swappa.com with additional questions.

Thanks!
Team Swappa

Flew back from CTIA in Vegas on the same plane as Flavor Flav. We may or may not have fought the power together. Super nice guy. #publicenemy

The Note 7 release means other used Samsung phones get cheaper: http://bit.ly/2bPgE3Z
Already seeing the #Note7 on +Swappa. Check out options for At&T, Verizon and Sprint.

If new isn't your thing, now is the perfect time to pick up a newish Note 4 or Note 5. Prices start dropping during new releases. Get some!
