Swappa Launches Boneyard; Buy and Sell Accessories, Broken Devices, and More
Swappa is XDA’s official marketplace for buying and selling gently used mobile devices because it has earned the trust of the community. With no seller fees, stringent requirements on the quality of devices that can be listed, and amazing customer service, we can’t imagine why anyone would use eBay. However, one thing that Swappa has lacked was a place to sell accessories, parts, and phones with broken screens. That has changed with the introduction of the Swappa Boneyard.
In Swappa Boneyard, you can find devices in need of repair (often times you can buy one of these devices, fix the component yourself, and save a lot of money), cases, Bluetooth accessories, and even wireless chargers. We’re excited to see our friends at Swappa continue to evolve and be a great service for the mobile community.
