Allowing customers to trade in used mobile devices for store credit or cash has become a powerful tool for retailers worldwide. However, with this opportunity comes a significant risk for the retailer in the form of stolen devices. If the retailer accepts stolen or lost devices, it can damage their reputation and brand, and also raise costs and losses.
