How to Sell or Pawn an Ipod

February 11, 2020 - Electronics

Before the iPod, people kept all their music in a giant CD case the size of their filing cabinet.

IPod took mp3 listening devices further by making them look slick, easy to use, and adding many features like games and the ability to hold videos and photos. Their popularity makes it easy to sell them to pawnshops. If you have an iPod you would like to pawn or sell, here are a few tips to get the most cash for your iPod.

Backup and reset to factory settings

Before you sell or pawn your iPod, make sure to back-up any everything that is in your iPod. You do not want the new user to have your pictures or any stored information. Once you’ve backed your iPod up, restore it to the original factory settings.

Packaging and original paperwork

If you have the original paperwork and packaging of your iPod, make sure to bring it with you when you take it into the pawn shop. Pawn shops like items in their complete package because they’re easier to sell. This also includes any of the original accessories like the USB cord and headphones. If you also have a case that goes with your your iPod, include that to potentially increase your offer.
