What warranty terms do you offer?

Our warranty is 60 days on used smartphones and tablets, covering functionality only (cosmetics are not included).  For brand-new devices and wearables such as smartwatches, the warranty is 30 days.  There are no warranties for batteries and accessories.

The warranty begins on the invoice date.

What do COB / CPO / Brown Box mean?

COB (Certified Open Box) or Brown Box iPads are fully tested and functional used devices with minimal wear and tear. COB refers to devices sold in packaging branded by the manufacturer, and Brown Box means the device has been packaged in a plain brown box.

Apple CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) devices are fully tested and functional devices that have been thoroughly cleaned and inspected.  They come kitted out with all accessories and have a 1-year warranty from Apple. All devices are in a white box. Find out more from the Apple website.

What information do you need to open an account?

USA resellers need to provide their Resale Certificate for the awarding State, and a copy of their valid sales tax license permit or certificate of authority for your state.

If you are an overseas reseller, we will need a copy of your identification card, and a copy of your corporate documents confirming ownership and billing information.

You can fill out an application before submitting your documentation, but your application won’t be processed until all documents have been provided.

How do I make payments?

All payments must be made by wire transfer.  Your sales rep will provide you with this information with your first purchase.

Shipping: how does it work?

You can choose to use your own, or PCS’s, shipping.  If you use your own, you’ll need to provide the account number and carrier name to your Account Manager.

Either way, inventory is shipped 1-2 business days after a sales order has been approved.

What inventory do you have in stock?

Our inventory changes daily and includes a wide range of Android and iOS mobile devices, as well as tablets, accessories, Apple watches and more.  Get in touch with [email protected] to get our latest inventory list.
