What happens after I send in my trade?
Upon receipt of your order in our processing center, our specially trained technicians will complete a functional inspection or your product(s). Over 80% of the products we inspect match exactly what was quoted online. In these cases where the quoted value matches the inspected value we send you an email letting you know, then issue payment in the form you selected. However, at times mistakes can be made by customers when identifying and grading their device. The most common mistake is when a customer submits an item as an incorrect generation or model (for example, an iPhone 4 versus an iPhone 4s). If we determine that the item received is an incorrect model or is in a different condition, we will adjust the inspected value either up or down to reflect the inspected model and/or condition. About 10% of our customers actually end up getting paid more than their quoted amount. For those whose value is below the quoted amount, NextWorth forgives differences that are less than $10 or 10% of the originally quoted amount and pays the original quoted amount. For differences greater than $10 or 10%, NextWorth gives customers TWO BUSINESS DAYS to either have their item sent back free of charge or accept the lower amount. If we not hear back from you within TWO BUSINESS DAYS, NextWorth will automatically issue payment for the adjusted amount.
Please note that if you send in accessories with your iPhone, iPod or iPad, they are immediately recycled upon receipt and cannot be returned.
What are my payment options?
NextWorth offers you a choice in payment options. You can have funds transferred directly to your PayPal account, or have a Target Gift Card or Check mailed to your home. Whatever you find most convenient!
How long does it take for me to get paid?
What is the NextWorth return policy?
NextWorth forgives differences that are less than $10 or 10% of the originally quoted amount and pays the original quoted amount. For differences greater than $10 or 10%, NextWorth gives customers TWO BUSINESS DAYS to either have their item sent back free of charge or accept the lower amount. If we not hear back from you within TWO BUSINESS DAYS, NextWorth will automatically issue payment for the adjusted amount.
PLEASE NOTE IF YOUR ITEM DOES NOT HAVE VALUE AFTER IT IS RE-PRICED AND YOU DO NOT REPLY TO OUR RE-PRICE EMAIL WITHIN TWO BUSINESS DAYS YOUR ITEM(S) WILL BE RECYCLED. We remove protective layers and/or casing to check condition of your item(s). If you want your item back for any reason, we are not responsible for any accessories, including chargers, external shells, casings or protective layers on your item(s).
Also please note that any item that matches the original quote or greater cannot be returned to you, and in the case of orders with multiple items we will only return the items that have been re-priced.
Our customers expect a fair and honest quote from us and we expect honesty and accuracy in how our customers evaluate their items. The company reserves the right at all times to determine whether an abuse to our system and services has been made for any reason. If we determine an abuse to our system has occurred, we will not provide free return shipping. Any customer whose order has been deemed as abuse will be responsible for the cost of having their item returned to them. As with all orders, only those items that have an error in submission will be eligible to be returned. Abuse of our system may include, but is not limited to: a significant change in the condition of an item, submitting an item as a clearly different model, or submitting an item as a working item when it is clearly broken.
