Unlike other stores, BankMyCell's Apple Watch trade-in offers aren't limited to gift cards/store credit as payment. It means you can get more cash that you can use for a future Apple purchase, such as a new Apple Watch.

Select the condition of your item, select a store, ship it for free, and you will get paid immediately. Here are more reasons why selling on BankMyCell's partner stores is the best option compared to other Apple Watch buyers:

  • Convenient shipping: Stores such as Apple, Walmart, and Target require you to visit their stores and have your device appraised before paying you an Apple gift card / Walmart gift card / Target gift card, or store credit. BankMyCell provides free shipping.
  • Straightforward and guaranteed process: Facebook Marketplace and eBay require you to post your own listings. You're expected to handle everything from posting photos of the Apple Watch models you're selling to communicating with potential buyers. A sale with BankMyCell is guaranteed.
  • No need to meet up with strangers: You may be required to meet strangers on Facebook Marketplaces and eBay, which can be dangerous if you are vulnerable or doing the sale exchange at your home. You only need to deal with an online buyback company with BankMyCell.
  • No sale fees:: You will be charged a high sale fee of up to over 15% if you are a "below-standard seller" on eBay. Because BankMyCell's partners provide free shipping, you will receive your profit without any deductions from the store.

BankMyCell compares prices for a variety of trusted stores, including their payment options, ratings, and information on free shipping and returns. Compared to other used Apple Watch buyers, all these stores offer high cash payouts.

These stores provide cash payments via Direct Deposit, PayPal, Check, Cash App, and Zelle.

Another store that pays cash via PayPal (subject to 4% fees) for a used Apple Watch is eBay. However, it requires a rigorous trade-in process:

  • You have to create a listing, upload photos, communicate with potential buyers, and possibly meet a stranger if a buyer wants to meet in person.
  • It also charges up to a 15% sale fee, which further reduces your profit.

As a result, doing an Apple Watch trade-in on buyback websites is a much better option. Simply visit BankMyCell, use our filters, and determine which store offers the best trade-in value for your device.

How to Get Paid For a Locked/Blacklisted/Financed Apple Watch

If you can't remember your iCloud password or lock screen passcode, you can still unlock your device with repair shops. You can trade in your device for a higher price after it has been unlocked. If unlocking your device is difficult, you can still sell it through one of BankMyCell's partner stores.

Follow these steps to sell your Apple Watch series (iCloud locked):

  • Select 'Locked' from the filters.
  • Examine the most recent trade-in values for your Apple Watch Series.
