Apple Product Buyer AppleShark Auctions Off Your Old or Broken Apple Devices for Your Benefit

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2012) - Where do you sell an outdated or broken Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod, MacBook or Apple accessory?

Is there a trustworthy buyer for your Apple iPod Nano, iPod touch or iPod Shuffle?

AppleShark emphatically answers those questions daily.

The St. Louis company brings highest value to sellers of all Apple media devices. AppleShark builds on that customer value with either instant or rapid payment.

According to AppleShark's CEO, Jon Slyman, "People who deal with us don't have to worry about how long they'll wait for payments. We process them immediately."

Here's how a transaction works. AppleShark offers an online bid on the outdated or broken Apple product. AppleShark honors the bid for 45 days. A customer who accepts the bid will print out a USPS mailing label from the AppleShark website -- appleshark.com.

The customer mailing is free, and St. Louis' central U.S. location also means shorter delivery time for most shipments. AppleShark insures each Apple shipment for full value at no cost to the customer.

AppleShark's payment system protects sellers from the inconvenience of slow payment. When the product arrives at AppleShark, customers with PayPal accounts receive instant payment. For customers who prefer payment by mail, a check goes out the same day.

Apple device sellers assume avoidable risk when mailing to an unknown or unreliable buyer. Doing business with AppleShark wipes out that risk. Mr. Slyman understands this well as his family has been doing business ethically in the St. Louis area for nearly 50 years.

"Being scammed can be a problem when someone sends an iPad, iPod or other Apple product to someone they don't know," Slyman emphasized.

In the iPad's three-year history, customers have bought about 100 million models. Those earlier iPads and other Apple devices break and wear out. Or maybe the user just wants a newer Apple product.

"By offering both the highest price and a safe transaction, AppleShark's objective is for our customers to believe what we already believe," Slyman said. "AppleShark is the best option for someone who wishes to replace yesterday's Apple product with today's Apple product."

He added, "We've taken every step to make AppleShark the best option for those who want to sell Apple products, such as the iPhone 4.

"We also provide customer security. Our Trustwave SSL Certification means that when anybody does business with us, their personal information is fully protected."
