We reserve the right to refuse to grant you any username, in our sole discretion, if the username that you choose is invalid. Invalid usernames include, but are not limited to, usernames that are vulgar or offensive; usernames that attempt to impersonate another individual or company; or usernames which violate trademark law, which may cause confusion or which violate any other proprietary rights of any company or individual.

BuyBackWorld also reserves the right to refuse use of the Website or Service to anyone, for any reason, at any time, at our sole discretion.
You agree to use the Services and Website in a manner that conforms to any and all applicable international, federal, state and local laws and regulations.
How Our Service Works:You visit the site and search for the item / or items that you intend to sell. Next, you fill out the item form which asks questions about the item and its condition. Upon receipt of that information, the Site will display a price quote indicating the amount of money that we will pay for the item you have described in the item form. The price quote is valid for thirty (30) calendar days from the date that the price quote is issued.
Accuracy of Information:We make all efforts to ensure that the information presented on the Site or in other communications including, but not limited to, price quotes is accurate. In the event of any typographical errors, technical inaccuracies, pricing errors or omissions, we reserve the right to correct the error. If we correct an error that will have a material effect on our price quote to you, you will have two (2) options: (1) to continue with the transaction based on the corrected information; or (2) to cancel your transaction, in which case we will promptly return your item to you.
Accepting the Offer:If you choose to accept the offer to buy at that quoted price from BuyBackWorld, you then create an account and complete the checkout process. The Site will then send you an email containing a prepaid United States Postal Service (“USPS”) shipping label. Please make sure that your email system is set to receive emails from BuyBackWorld.com.
Product Eligibility:BuyBackWorld determines, in its sole discretion, which Products are eligible for purchase by or through the BuyBackWorld Services and for which eligible Products BuyBackWorld will provide an offer. BuyBackWorld may terminate the eligibility of certain Products at any time and without advanced notice, but such termination will not affect any Products for which you have already accepted an offer, which is good for thirty (30) days.
Shipping the Item:Once you have received the shipping label, you pack the item carefully in either your own shipping carton or use the shipping kit we will provide you and ship it from a U.S. Post Office. We prepay the shipping costs when you use our prepaid label. However, if you wish to fully insure your package, insurance must be purchased by you at your sole expense. If you choose to use any other shipping service or carrier, you must do so at your own expense.
Risk of Loss/Passing of Title:You assume all risk of loss or damage in transit until the item is received by us at our processing center. Title to the item does not pass to BuyBackWorld until the item is received and inspected at our processing center. If your item is rejected (due to damage or other issues that were not disclosed in your item form), title to the item will remain with you and the item will be returned to you.
Risk of Loss (detail):In the event that you reject the revised offer, your item will be sent back to you via USPS First Class mail, USPS Priority Mail or FedEx Ground. A tracking number will be provided to you once your item is shipped back to you. If you do not receive a Return Tracking Number, please contact [email protected] and request one. You remain responsible for the risk-of-loss of any and all Products until delivery of the same to BuyBackWorld. You are responsible for any damages that may occur to your Product while in transit. BuyBackWorld is responsible for the risk-of-loss when it opens the packaging containing your Product and ceases in the event BuyBackWorld returns your Product to you for any reason. For avoidance of doubt, in such event, risk-of-loss will be transferred to you once BuyBackWorld delivers the package to the carrier for return to you and you will bear the risk-of-loss in transit. All items which are returned and show a delivery confirmation via the carrier's tracking # are considered final and you bear the risk-of-loss for items which are taken from your property. Returned items will not be shipped with signature confirmation or with insurance.
Passing of Title (detail):Title of the Products passes to BuyBackWorld upon BuyBackWorld's receipt and acceptance of the Product for the original quote or the revised offer, as applicable. If there is any Return Circumstance, title shall not pass to BuyBackWorld and remain with you.
Inspection of the Item:Your Product must be received by BuyBackWorld within thirty (30) days after you complete a checkout on our site and accept the original offer provided by BuyBackWorld. Packing and shipping recommendations provided to you by BuyBackWorld should be followed to avoid possible damage to or loss of the Product in transit. BuyBackWorld will inspect all Products that are received. Once we receive the item, our team inspects it to make sure it arrives in the condition stated in your item form. We then notify you that we have received your item and that it has been inspected. If it arrives in the condition stated, you will receive an email confirming this and we will issue payment in the amount of the price quote (by check or Paypal®).
If the item does not arrive in the condition stated in your item form, we will inform you of this via email and either cancel our offer and ship the item back to you at the address of record on the account or make a lower offer based on the condition it was received in. The item must include all the materials you stated came with your item (i.e., chargers, adapters, accessories, software, etc.). Failure to include these pieces of your item will lower your quote and lead to recalculation if they are required for that particular trade-in. PLEASE NOTE: For iPhones we do not require any accessories to be sent in unless the device is Brand NEW in a sealed box.
Return Circumstance:In the event that BuyBackWorld sends you a revised offer for your Product after it has been received and inspected, as described above, you shall have the option to either accept or reject the revised offer. If you accept the revised offer, you will be paid in a normal course and in accordance with these Service Terms. If you reject the revised offer, BuyBackWorld will return the Product to you at the address of record on your account. PLEASE NOTE: Prohibited Items as outlined below will not be eligible for return and any device reported to be either “stolen” or counterfeit will not be returned.
You will have the opportunity to accept or reject our revised offer for up to five (5) days (the “Revised Offer Period”). BuyBackWorld will also remind you of the revised offer one or more times during the Revised Offer Period. If you do not respond within five (5) days, we will infer your acceptance of our revised offer and automatically process the item at the price quote adjusted by us to reflect the appropriate condition and you will be paid the revised offer price in the normal course and in accordance with these Service Terms. For the avoidance of any and all doubt, your acceptance of the original offer and/or any revised offer is final and you will not be able to change your mind later about accepting such offer.
Releasing Rights to Product:Once you send BuyBackWorld your Product, BuyBackWorld cannot and does not guarantee that it will be able to honor any request for return of the Product and/or any data or information contained in such Product. Of course, if BuyBackWorld rejects the Product or you do not accept any revised offer for the Product ("Return Circumstances"), your Product will be returned to you.
Our Rating System for Item Condition Upon Receipt:
BuyBackWorld uses four (4) basic Production conditions to grade Products, ranging from “Poor/Broken” with physical or functional issues to “NEW”, which is equivalent to buying a device brand new out of store which has never been used. Conditions can vary widely between categories and types of Products. Broadly, BuyBackWorld’s Product definitions are as follows:
Poor/Broken – The item does not function properly or has significant physical damage, including cracks, broken displays, missing parts, or personalization etc. A bad ESN is also considered to be in “Poor/Broken” condition.
Average – The item functions as it should but there is evidence of normal use, such as deep scratches and dents. There are no missing buttons or cracks. The item must have a clean ESN if a cellular enable device.
Excellent – The item functions as it should but there is evidence of very light wear, such as very minor scratches or scuffs. There are no cracks or missing buttons. The item must have a clean ESN if a cellular enable device.
New – The item must be SEALED and has never been used. The device is the equivalent of buying one directly from a retail store. Even if the device has never been used, but the box has been opened, it will not be considered to be in “New” condition. The item must have a clean ESN if a cellular enable device.
Prohibited Items:Certain items are prohibited. By using the Service, you represent that the items are not items that are prohibited. You agree to indemnify the Covered Parties (as defined herein) from any liability resulting from your submission to us of prohibited items.

The ESN (Electronic Serial Number) is a serial number unique to each and every CDMA phone. A CDMA phone typically does not have a SIM Card and is usually Verizon, Sprint, Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile, Metro PCS, Cricket or Alltel.
An ESN may NOT be clear for activation by a new user for the following reasons:
An ESN can also be referred to as an MEID (Mobile Equipment Identifier). This number is tied to a carrier and helps record the activity and status of the device.
Prior to our inspection, we will check to ensure that the ESN has been deactivated. If the ESN is not clear for activation, we will notify you via email and hold the item for 5 days. We will ask you to contact your wireless service provider and clear any issues that are causing your item's ESN to be active so that we can pay you the full amount.
Unfortunately, if you are unable to clear your ESN for activation, we will consider your phone to be in "Poor" condition, since it is only worth its value in parts and cannot be activated by a new user.
Verizon phones can now be checked through their "Activate Phone or Device" page.
The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is a 15 digit serial number unique to each and every GSM phone. A GSM phone has a SIM Card and is usually AT&T or T-Mobile.
You will usually find it printed on a sticker on the back of your cell phone or on the SIM tray of most Apple iPhones.
Alternatively you can have your mobile display its IMEI number by typing the following on the keypad: *#06#
If your handset displays more than 15 digits or is separated by symbols, please enter the first 15 digits only.
