Swappa Launches UK Market
As you might recall, we recently announced that XDA has made Swappa its official marketplace for buying and selling gently used mobile devices. You can login to Swappa with your XDA username, and you can even advertise a Swappa listing in your signature in the forums.
One of the most common requests we heard was for Swappa to have local markets for other countries and not just the US. While anyone can use Swappa, regardless of country, shipping is more pricey for international users if buying only from the US, and the currency is not localized.
Swappa is changing that with the release of its UK market. You can change regions by hitting the flag in the upper left corner of the site, or just visit Swappa.com/uk. And yes, other markets are coming soon, like India and Europe. Stay tuned.
