TipTop Shop app offers purchase, sale and exchange of devices in one transaction

By Julie Clover

TipTop, the app for exchanging used devices and getting instant cash, today launched a new feature called “Shop.” In TipTop Shop, users can buy new, opened and refurbished products, as well as exchange old devices at the same time.


This feature allows customers to sell items, trade them and/or buy new devices in a single transaction. This is a unique option for a device trading/selling app because there is no need to go through a multi-step process when upgrading to a new device.

Now, with TipTop Store, you can purchase any product and at this exchange any device from any manufacturer. The cross-brand trade-in program is an industry first, as other trade-in programs rely on multi-step transactions, gift cards or other complex processes.

Looking to trade in your Samsung Galaxy for a new iPad? No problem. Apple HomePod mini with a hefty discount on the new Nintendo Switch? I bet. Trade your iPhone for a useless phone? We can help with this. And TipTop can do it all with just one tap.

TipTop was founded by Bastian Lehmann, founder and CEO of Postmate, and has former TechCrunch editor-in-chief Matthew Panzarino as its VP of Marketing. Trade-in prices for the app are similar to those offered by Apple, although on some newer devices it offers more than Apple and less than Apple on older devices.

The app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct link]
