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 GRC WIRELESS upon the receipt of PRODUCT at the GRC WIRELESS facility in Hollywood, Florida.
SELLER expressly acknowledges that all shipments using the GRC WIRELESS FedEx Ground Shipping Service are not insured. GRC WIRELESS will not be liable for any damages or loss of PRODUCT during the shipping process. If a shipment is damaged, lost, or missing any contents during the shipping process, there will be no financial recovery to SELLER. SELLER retains title to the PRODUCT until the receipt (evidence by receipt signature) of PRODUCT by GRC WIRELESS at the GRC WIRELESS facility in Hollywood, Florida.
SELLER is free to arrange shipping at SELLER’S own expense, and insure any shipment accordingly.
The final buyback value SELLER shall receive (hereinafter “BUYBACK VALUE”) is a factor of PRODUCT condition at the time of receipt and inspection by GRC WIRELESS.
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, GRC WIRELESS will contact SELLER one (1) time via the email. SELLER may elect to receive to receive the lower BUYBACK VALUE, or GRC WIRELESS 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 GRC WIRELESS. 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 GRC WIRELESS.
Payment will be issued via the method chosen by SELLER at checkout (check or PayPal). If payment is issued via PayPal, the payment will be issued to the PayPal email address given by SELLER at checkout. Once payment is issued to the PayPal account given by SELLER, the transaction is complete. GRC WIRELESS will not be responsible for any problems or delay in release of funds related to the SELLER’s PayPal account, including but not limited to SELLER entering the incorrect PayPal email at checkout.
NON COMPLIANT PRODUCT / EXCEPTION TO RETURN GUARANTEE
If PRODUCT is received in any of the following conditions:
1) The ESN (Electronic Serial Number) or IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is reported as lost, stolen, blocked, blacklisted, or on a ‘financed’ or ‘leased’ plan, or
2) The PRODUCT has any type of activation lock on the device (e.g. Apple iCloud lock, Google lock, Samsung lock, DEP lock, MDM lock, or any type of remote management lock), or
3) The PRODUCT received is different than the PRODUCT stated on the packing slip,
the BUYBACK VALUE will be reduced to zero. If SELLER wishes to have NON COMPLIANT PRODUCT returned, SELLER will be required to pay a $15 RETURN FEE per device. This fee covers the cost of inbound postage, outbound postage, diagnostic fees and processing cost.
Furthermore, if the PRODUCT does not meet the requirements of “good condition” or “fair condition”, but also does not meet the NONCOMPLIANT provision above, and SELLER wishes to have PRODUCT returned, the nature of the damage to the PRODUCT will be also be analyzed by GRC WIRELESS in determining whether a RETURN FEE will be applied.

This assessment will be made at the sole discretion of GRC WIRELESS.
If PRODUCT is returned to SELLER, GRC WIRELESS will put forth reasonable effort to return any accessories, memory cards, SIM cards, or collateral material (hereinafter “COLLATERAL ITEMS”) included in original shipment.

The GRC WIRELESS standard practice is to employ a DOD-Level data erasure tool to erase all user data from PRODUCT. In certain situations, including but not limited to SELLER’s failure to remove an activation lock (e.g. Apple iCloud lock, MDM, DEP or Google lock), GRC WIRELESS may also employ a standard factory reset for specific items.
