Get Cash for your PS5
If you are thinking about selling your PS5, then you will want to get the best price possible. We offer great deals whether you want to sell or trade-in, but there are a number of things you can do to make sure you get the cash that your console deserves.
Make sure you know exactly which console you have.
There are various PS5 models, and they will all have different values. If you get the console model wrong, not only will you be quoted a wrong value for your PS5. For example, if you want to sell PS5 digital, you will get a lower quote than if you want to sell a PS5 with a disc slot.
If you are unsure which model you have to sell, it is important that you find out for definite before you begin the process. The easiest way to do this is to look at the model number. For the PS5, you should be able to find the model number of the console's original packaging.
If you don't have the packaging, don't worry. You can sell an unboxed console with us and find the model number on the bottom of the console when it is standing upright.
Make Sure You Know How Much Storage Your PS5 Has
Storage capacity can make a big difference to the amount of cash you could get to sell PS5. You should be able to find out how much storage your console has by looking at the original box, or if you no longer have it, then look at the bottom of the console.
When deciding how much storage your console has, you need to consider whether you have upgraded anything. If you have, then make sure you give an accurate storage capacity when you are listing your PS5s features. Alternatively, make sure that you remove any additional storage and revert your PS5 back to its original configuration.
PS5 console must include accessories
If you are selling your PS5, then you need to include accessories that go with it. This can be a PS5 controller, USB-C cable, HDMI cable, Power cable or headset.
If you do not intend to purchase another PlayStation, then you might think there is little point in keeping any games or other accessories. However, if you are planning to upgrade to a different PS5 model, or purchase any other PlayStation, keeping accessories that will work with your new console might save you money on your purchase.
Clean Your PS5 Before Selling It
If you want to make sure you get the best cash price for your PS5, you need to make sure it looks good. Even if your console is in perfect working order, if it looks a mess, you are likely to be offered a lower price for it. It is normal to have a certain amount of scratches on a used PS5, but these should be minimal. If you do have scratches on your console, there is little you can do about them so just be honest when listing the condition of the item.
If there are no or few scratches, then make sure you give the console a thorough clean. A microfiber cloth and/or compressed air are great for cleaning games consoles and making them look new again. When it comes to controllers, pay close attention, as these items tend to get a lot dirtier than the actual console. Making them look clean and ready to use will help you to get the best price for your trade-in PS5.
If you have decided that you want to sell or trade-in your PS5, and you have taken the time to do everything you can to get the best possible price, you are ready to get your console ready to sell. When you are getting rid of a games console, it is important to remember that a lot of data can be stored in them, and this can include personal information. Follow these three steps to keep your information safe and make sure you don't lose any data.
Backup Your PS5 – this is a must if you are planning on upgrading to a better PS5 model because you are likely to be playing the same games and won't lose all your hard-earned progress. However, it is still worth doing even if you don't have any plans to have another PlayStation. If you choose to buy one in the future, you won't need to start all over again!
Unlink Your PS5 From Your PlayStation Account – unlinking your PS5 from your PlayStation account will mean that the person who purchases your PS5 will be able to set it up as their own PS5, linked to their own PlayStation account.
Initialize Your PS5 – initializing your PS5 will erase all the data from the system. This includes any personal information, downloaded games and game progress. Make sure you carry this step out after you have created a backup! This can take several hours but will ensure the PS5 is reverted back to its factory settings and will keep your data safe.
