LOS ANGELES, April 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Phonecheck, an industry-trusted mobile device certification provider, announced today it is a preferred partner for Back Market, the leading renewed electronics marketplace. The partnership offers Back Market sellers additional tools to enhance used device diagnostics and certification, further supporting quality as a top priority for the marketplace.
The market for refurbished phones is forecasted to grow to a worldwide industry value of $65 billion by 2024. As more sellers enter the market, consumers increasingly want regulated, industry-wide standards for quality and authenticity. As the competition heats up, sellers are looking for ways to differentiate, increase sales and generate more revenue per device. By leveraging the use of comprehensive device certification from Phonecheck, sellers typically see much brisker sales and 5-10% higher resale value.
Phonecheck certification is supported by the company's exclusive Device History Report, providing crucial details on device authenticity, ownership status, carrier information, repair history, functionality and more to Phonecheck users. Devices undergo a comprehensive diagnostic and certified data-wipe process, accredited by the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA), through the enterprise-scale testing and certification suite. Phonecheck's programmatic certification goes beyond diagnostics and data-wipe to report accurate, verified data on each device for sellers to deliver as an added value to their customers in the resale process.
Back Market, which has sold refurbished devices to more than six million customers, has its own stringent program in place to monitor the quality of devices, including an approval process that sees two out of three potential sellers denied access to its marketplace. The company also monitors seller performance in real-time and offers buyers a 30-day money-back guarantee and one-year warranty.
