Nearly 10 percent of Romanian buyers who want to purchase a new smart device choose the Buy Back system, according to estimates by representatives of iStyle, the largest Apple Premium Reseller network in Central and Eastern Europe.
“Our retail network provides customers with the “Buy back” system that can be used to purchase new phones in exchange for handover of terminals. At least in the Romanian iStyle network we are talking about a “double digit” percentage, so somewhere at 10 percent of those who prefer this way to purchase a new device. As for the discounts that customers can get through “Buy back” they vary depending on the status of the used handset, and can reach up to 60 percent of the cost of a terminal smart new,” said Dragos Vrinceanu, retail manager iStyle Romania, at Apple’s new smarthone showcase – iPhone XS and XS Max as well as the Apple Watch Series 4.
