Business Description Turnkey Mobile Phone Recycling Business with Source Code, Industry Contacts and Support

Even small niche players who work in a local area (cities) make money. Considering that the average person now owns 2 mobile phones in the US, there are plenty of phones left sitting around hidden in drawers that can be sold for a profit. The biggest players in the market are mostly national firms such as Gazelle but even operating locally and advertising in Craigslist to get phones can net you easily $10K / month.

The Business Model:

Step 1. Getting the Phone - SelltheCell buys phones directly from consumers or in bulk from stores. Consumers often are not price sensitive (i.e. they just want to get rid of the phone). The phone can be delivered by regular USPS mail. Once received SelltheCell inspects the phone and either pays for it according to the condition or sends the phone back (in the case they don't want the phone).

Step 2. Selling the Phone to Wholesalers - The phone is now sold to bulk recyclers both domestic and international for a considerable markup. The recyclers will take any phone in any condition as they don't waste their time inspecting each and every phone. Phones in better condition will be fixed and sold as refurbished products in international markets. Phones in poor condition will be recycled for parts. In general they buy any phone in any condition. The average markup can range anywhere from 20-35%.

Step 2a. Selling the Phone to Consumers - For phones in better condition the phone can be easily sold throw retail channels like Amazon, Ebay etc. for a considerable markup. Anywhere from 50-75% depending on the phone type and model.

The Software:

The software was developed by a top tier Indian software company. The software can be deployed on any domain easily - in effect being transportable to any domain you choose should you want to create something specific for a certain phone model. Software is written in PHP using Smarty Templates and deployed on a standard Linux server.

You would be buying and owning the source code of the software. To recreate this yourself would cost a lot of money. If required we will host the software for free for you for 1 year post-purchase or you can easily move it to your own server. It requires just any shared server account for a few bucks on any host. It does not require anything more to operate.
