Glyde is an online marketplace that makes it truly easy to buy and sell smartphones, tablets, MacBooks, and iPods. The marketplace is made up of individuals like you, who are looking for a better, simpler place to make and save money online.
Glyde removes the friction and hassle from buying and selling online. As a seller, you can list your item for sale in seconds. Glyde gets you more cash for your items than trade in sites by connecting you directly to buyers. There are no photos to upload or auctions to manage. When your item sells, we send you a pre-paid, Netflix-like shipping kit to fulfill the sale. Withdraw your cash proceeds directly to your bank account or receive a check.
As a buyer, you can browse thousands of new and gently-used items and save up to 90% off the retail price. Glyde's return policy and payment protections guarantee your satisfaction.
Glyde ensures the safety of your information with a secure connection and transfers your data using an https connection with 256-bit encryption. Money exchanges are held securely by Glyde during a transaction and our service team (contact [email protected]) has your back if anything goes wrong. Glyde has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and CNN.
Almost all packages are shipped through the United States Postal Service. We use First Class and Priority shipping, depending on weight and distance.

Creating an account and listing items for sale on Glyde is completely FREE. When your item sells, we deduct 15% of the item's sale price. When listing an item for sale, the amount quoted on the "In your pocket:" line is the total amount you will make on your sale. Depending on the item, it's $1.00 - $6.00 for the shipping kit.
Click 'Withdraw' on your Account page. Electronic withdrawals to your bank account and Bitcoin withdrawals are free. Get a paper check mailed to you for a $2.00 fee. Bitcoin withdrawals will typically process in 1-2 business days. Allow 3-5 business days for an electronic deposit to appear in your bank account and 5-7 business days for paper check to arrive in the mail.
Bitcoin is a new digital currency. It can be exchanged for dollars or used to pay for goods and services where accepted. When you sell an item on Glyde, you'll have the option to withdraw your proceeds in bitcoins. It's a fast and secure way to get paid. If you choose the Bitcoin payment method when you withdraw, the amount you take out will be transferred from dollars to bitcoins according to the rate of exchange at the time of your withdrawal. The price or value of Bitcoin can change rapidly. Like cash, you cannot deposit bitcoins into your Glyde account.
Each day we crunch the numbers from thousands of online sales to get the Glyde Market Price, a figure that gets you the most money for your item in a speedy timeframe.
The item you see at a higher price was listed at an earlier date, when the value and suggested listing price was higher. As most items age, they decrease in value. However, a listing made at the lower, more updated price will sell first.
No need. Our condition descriptions and questions simplify the listing process and accurately determine the price of your item.
This time period depends on the item you list and the price you set. Most items sell within a few days while iPhones and iPads can sell within hours. To ensure a quick sale, we recommend listing your item at or below our suggested Market Price.
We send you foam-padded boxes for gadget and MacBook sales. Included in each kit is a pre-paid label that will carry your item on to the buyer. Just place the package in your outgoing mail.
Please do not include any accessories beyond your power adapter and cable. The postage for each shipping box is calculated to a specific weight. Including extra accessories like cases can cause shipping problems and will not increase the value of your sale.
We'll email you every step of the way, from when your item sells to when you withdraw your proceeds.
We've got you covered. Visit Glydecast for instructions on restoring your device to its factory settings.
Yes, please call your carrier (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.) and make sure to deactivate the phone before shipping. A shipped phone that is not deactivated will likely result in a return.
