Improve your retail store’s profitability with a recycling program
Are you a wireless retailer or a consumer electronics retailer who is looking to increase sales revenue and to improve gross profit? R3 Trade-ins offers retailers a program that lets them accept cell phone trade-ins and electronic trade-ins items from their customers. The money for the trade-in can then be used to help the customer purchase additional accessories or other products in your store.
Here is how it works: The customer brings in their old mobile phone or other electronic item into the store; your retail sales representative then appraises the product and issues a store gift card or instant rebate in the amount of the product’s value; R3 Trade-ins then reimburses the retailer for the amount of the trade-in every month and even provides co-op advertising funds to help the retailer promote the program! They also have a terrific customized e-learning retail training program that is available 24×7 on a training portal for their dealers. Plus they offer free shipping for the traded-in electronics. Their reporting is also very robust so that the dealer can performance manage their retail sales associates behavior on the floor.
