  1. Orchard pays more for your used iPhone than USell.

Compared to USell, Orchard offers the most convenient way to sell your iPhone for the most money. On average, you can make up to $100 more selling your iPhone with Orchard instead of USell.

We can pay more because Orchard gets a chance to actually inspect your phone before you ship it in to us. While USell gives you a lowball offer based on just a few data points, selling an iPhone with Orchard starts with the Orchard app.

After a series of diagnostic tests, the Orchard app calculates a price for your phone. Its pricing algorithm takes into account each phone's storage capacity, model, external condition, and other factors. We then deduct a selling fee and generate an in-app quote. Understanding the state of your phone before it reaches us means we can make higher offers. This gets our sellers paid more than any other resale program.

"The experience with Orchard was seamless. I got nearly the same amount for my phone that I would have got selling it myself with absolutely none of the hassle. They even INCREASED the price they were going to give my for my phone once they received it because it was in better condition that I had reported. I can't say enough positive things about the service." David Gonzalez September 2016 (Google+)
"No more dealing with Kijiji/Craigslist flakes or lowballers as Orchard got our used iPhone 5s sold in about a day. No more dealing with incredibly low trade in values from retailers as I got much more than Orchard's original quote which was already about twice as high than any retailer. I can't say enough nice things about Orchard - outstanding customer service and follow ups, ease of use, and a very efficient payment. Haven't bought a phone from Orchard yet but will definitely consider it in the future after this wonderful experience. Thank you Orchard Team!" Truongyx October 2016 (Google+)

Orchard is known for their top-notch customer support team. We spend every day making sure our customers have the best experience selling their iPhone. That’s why our customer support team checks in with every single customer to proactively answer any questions you may have.

"soooo easy! They diagnosed my phone online and promised $200. This is more than any other trade in offer. i was skeptical but I sent in my phone. I was expecting them to back out of the deal but no. I received a $200 interact payment this morning. I will now be sending them my other phone! What a great company!" Paulette Sparrow April 2016 (Google+)

Very prompt payment. Forget using online classifieds for selling your phone. Orchard really is the easiest way!" Steven Chung March 2016 (Google+)
