Envirofone will sell preowned mobile phones following the launch of its new online store.
Redeem has launched the Envirofone online shop to allow customers to purchase the latest devices second hand, by trading in their old mobile phone or paying cash.
The Envirofone shop will sell mobile devices, accessories, tablets and wearables. Redeem’s director of online strategy, Richard Mavers, described the launch as something that ‘always kind of made sense’, explaining that the preowned industry has grown significantly in the UK.
He said: ‘I think the launch of an online shop is something that has always kind of made sense. The mobile market is one with lots of new products and I think that these devices have become too expensive.
‘It is too much for customers to buy a new device in the UK, and we have seen that the preowned market has grown massively over the last few years. The online shop will allow customers to get a top class mobile phone at a fraction of the price. The preowned industry is different area where we have a good business and we want to make the most of it by providing customers with a high end device.’
The online shop will initially be available in the UK with plans to expand internationally.
