Our founding team stumbled on the idea behind Backflip when moving between apartments. “Why can’t we find someone to just buy this stuff and take it off our hands today,” they wondered.
“We should be able to sell anything in a matter of minutes by just taking a picture of it on our phones.” Backflip is the first step towards realizing this vision.
How it’s going...
Today, Backflip operates an on-demand courier service that picks up items under 30 pounds. Your items are photographed at pickup, and you’re sent a receipt for your records. When things arrive at Backflip headquarters, they are quickly evaluated by a team of experts who determine their expected resale value. Your offers are sent within 24 business hours, and you can choose to get paid or get your things back, no questions asked!
Backflip offers both an Instant Price™ and a Consign Price™ for each item, giving you the flexibility to wait a bit longer in order to get paid up to 50% more.
“Backflip has a very strong community! In fact, 1 out of 3 people use Backflip twice within 2 weeks. Let’s connect and chat about all things Backflip!”
