The use of Secure Buyback is governed by the terms and conditions set forth in this User Agreement (hereinafter “AGREEMENT”). Your use of this site and/or placement of a transaction indicates your acceptance of the terms and conditions set forth in this AGREEMENT.
ELIGIBILITY TO CONTRACT
Secure Buyback is only available to SELLER(s) who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.
SELLER must be the sole and rightful owner of the PRODUCT, and all PRODUCT must be free of any liens and/or claims by any third party. If PRODUCT is determined to be lost or stolen, SELLER will not receive any compensation for the PRODUCT. SELLER agrees to transfer all title and interest in the PRODUCT to Secure Buyback upon the receipt of PRODUCT at the Secure Buyback / GRC Wireless, Inc. facility in Hollywood, Florida.
The final buyback value SELLER shall receive (hereinafter “BUYBACK VALUE”) is a factor of PRODUCT condition at the time of receipt and inspection by Secure Buyback.
To receive the “good condition” price, PRODUCT must be fully functional, show minimal or no signs of wear, have a clean IMEI , be released from all financing and leasing plans, and be activation unlocked. If PRODUCT is fully functional but has more significant signs of wear, the product will receive “fair condition” price, which is 85% of the “good condition” price.
If the PRODUCT has functional damage but has a clean IMEI and is activation unlocked, it will receive the “damaged condition” price.
If PRODUCT is currently on a ‘financing’ or ‘leasing’ plan, regardless of the diagnostic results, it will receive the “damaged condition” price.
If the PRODUCT has an IMEI or ESN reported as lost, stolen, blocked, or blacklisted or PRODUCT is activation locked (iCloud or Google lock), the final value will zero.
If the PRODUCT receive does not match listed on the packing list, a fair market value will be assigned to the PRODUCT, and PRODUCT will be deemed NON COMPLIANT PRODUCT per below.
If a $5 Bonus (hereinafter “BONUS”) is successfully redeemed by SELLER, the BONUS shall be applied to PRODUCT with a final value of $25 or higher. PRODUCT with a final value under $25 will not earn a BONUS.
PAYMENT & GUARANTEE POLICY
If PRODUCT is designated for “good condition” or “fair condition” price, payment will automatically be issue and will not be returned to SELLER.
If PRODUCT does not meet the requirement of “good condition” or “fair condition” price, Secure Buyback will contact SELLER one (1) time via the email. SELLER may elect to receive to receive the lower BUYBACK VALUE, or Secure Buyback will return PRODUCT to SELLER at no cost to SELLER, subject to the NON COMPLIANT PRODUCT provision below. SELLER has seven (7) calendar days to respond to email, after which PRODUCT will be processed by Secure Buyback. After this seven (7) calendar day period expires, PRODUCT will not be returned to SELLER.
The BUYBACK VALUE is guaranteed for 30 calendar days from the date printed on the packing slip. If the PRODUCT is received after the 30 day period, the BUYBACK VALUE will be revised to the current price (hereinafter “CURRENT PRICE”). If PRODUCT is received after the 30 calendar day period, and the PRODUCT is graded to receive the current “good condition” price or “fair condition” price, the PRODUCT will not be returned to SELLER.
If PRODUCT is missing a battery or battery back, the BUYBACK VALUE may be reduced by a specified amount. Any accessories, chargers and/or earpieces included with PRODUCT, will not yield extra value.
Payment will be issued within 7 business days after the final shipment approval, in writing, by SELLER. The payment lead time during specific seasonal and world events (e.g. the Covid-19 outbreak in March & April 2020) may be lengthened. Any increase in payment lead time will be determined at the sole discretion of Secure Buyback.
Payment will be issued via the method chosen by SELLER at checkout (check or PayPal).
