Top Dollar Mobile entered the mobile phone recycling market in 2010, since the launch there have been many reviews written discussing if there is a topdollarmobile scam and if they could trust topdollar mobile.
TDM is backed by a Chinese company Guang Yi, based in Hong Kong they have been established since 1993 trading in new and used mobile phones.
In early 2011 Top Dollar Mobile continued their growth with the launch of a recycling website for Spain and a rumoured TV advertising campaign.
Top Dollar Mobile reviews how it works guide. Firstly the TDM website is very clean and bold in it's design and colour, using bright orange action colour.
The selling process on the site is advertised as a standard 3 step sequence.
In step 1 finding your phone is simple either through text search or a manufacturer / model listing. However some of the banners didn't go where I was expected
The next stage is to confirm the status of your handset either working or non working, there is a box to enter your IMEI number. You will also need to confirm your payment type.
OK, next you will need to click on the Basket as the top of the page then the green checkout button. In the Checkout area you will need to enter your personal details, good feature is that they check each input field with a little green tick.
On the final page there is a summary and a button to confirm at the bottom of the page
We received our confirmation email immediately which was good and it had clear instructions on what to do next.
Top Dollar Mobile sends out a trade pack upon completion of your order, with really clear instructions regarding insurance and posting options.
See images below taken from pack sent to CompareMyMobile when testing them.
They offer 2 payment options;
In summary the payment options are good but not fantastic, alternative higher value vouchers or paypal could be an option. Quite a few of the recyclers are now charging for Cheque payment, so our recommendation is to go for BACS transfer.
Top Dollar Mobile do not offer any voucher payments or any voucher codes to get extra money for your mobile. Information source from the main site and other Top Dollar Mobile reviews at the time of this review.
