Swappa now offers protection plans for used smartphones

brokeniphone2.jpg

Swappa, an online marketplace for buying and selling used electronics, wants to relieve the stress of not having insurance or a protection plan on the used devices a customer buys through the site, by offering a protection plan of its own.

Anyone who purchases a smartphone from a seller on Swappa will have the option to add a protection plan at time of purchase. A protection plan for devices sold for $300 or less will cost $50, devices sold for up to $500 is $60, and devices sold up to $1,000 will cost $70.

The protection plans cover any accidental damage, such as a cracked screen or water damage for a $50 deductible.

Additionally, the protection plan will cover any device defects normally covered under warranty starting 90 days after you purchased the device through Swappa. The protection plan is valid for one year.

Repairs are either carried out at a local repair shop that has partnered with Swappa, or you can mail in your device.

Adding protection plans to Swappa purchases is yet another push by the company to expand beyond a marketplace for used smartphones. More recently the company added a Swappa Repair Network to help its users to find a local repair shop, and expanded its listings to include Chromebooks and laptops.

Adding protection plans helps eliminate one more hurdle users face when trying to decide if buying a used device is a wise investment.

Buying a phone on Swappa? You can insure it and pay $50 to repair or replace it

swappa protection plans broken smartphone
Swappa, best known as an online marketplace that lets you buy and sell used devices, made negative headlines recently when it announced it would increase the money it would get from sales. The company now hopes to make positive headlines by announcing protection plans for devices bought through the marketplace.

According to Swappa, 30 percent of its users will break their devices at some point. The company did not say how it arrived at such a metric, though that did not stop it from teaming up with Warranty Life to offer three different protection plans. The first plan, which offers protection up to $300, can be bought for $50. The second plan, meanwhile, offers protection up to $500 and can be purchased for $60. Finally, the third plan offers protection up to $1,000 and is available for $70.

Regardless of which protection plan you go for, they all offer accident protection, which means your drops and spills will be covered. Furthermore, any cracked glass or screen, as well as power surge damage, are covered. Make sure the plan you pick covers the cost of the device, however, since the plans pay for either a replacement or repair up to the value of the device.

There are a few things to note, the first being that the plans do not kick in if you lose your device or have it stolen. The plans also do not cover battery failure or leakage, nor does it cover software issues and cosmetic damage that do not affect functionality.

With that said, the protection plans give you one-year renewable and transferable coverage, with the $50 deductible seemingly a fixed amount. You can only purchase them when you buy a device, however, so make sure you want to buy insurance for your device before buying it.

Finally, the protection plans are only available for smartphones, though insurance for tablets and laptops is “coming soon.”
