eBay launches Instant Selling, a new trade-in service for smartphones

With eBay Instant Selling, as the service is called, consumers can list their device info, add images, then receive an instant voucher that can be used towards the purchase of a new device from eBay. It says that standard programs tend to offer 40 to 50 percent off the average market selling price, but eBay will provide up to 40% higher than trade-in values, on average. In November, eBay will add T-Mobile, Sprint and Google Pixel and select LG products to that list, it says.
