Returns Management

    - Blackbelt for smart phones & tablets
    - Checkmend for smartphones
  • Resell Stock using our experience and expertise to ensure the best return value on stock for all our suppliers.

Our Circular Economy

According to studies by the Circularity Gap over 90% of the world’s resources – which include metals, plastics, wood, concrete, chemicals and all other materials in circulation – are used only once, in a single product, before becoming waste. If you look at the consumer electronics and technology sectors, smartphones & laptops are updated every 12 months. As part of our ongoing commitment to become more sustainable, Xcess offers our retailers, distributors and brands the ability to redistribute and refurbish returned products. This, therefore, reduces the single use and throw away culture that fast-paced product launches & retail returns can create.

Our ability to verify stock, manifesting its EAN, grade, description and volume allows us to then start the process of data erasing & functionality-testing a product. With an in-house team of qualified engineers, we have the ability to repair smartphones & computing products by parts harvesting from beyond economical repair items. This helps to reduce the waste & also improves the yield of stock put back into a saleable condition.

Once products have passed their verification & testing process, we can begin to grade & repackage stock based on the best channels for its resale. Our resale channels include both business to consumer (B2C) and also business to business (B2B). Our goal is to be able to offer tested, working products to our customers with a guarantee on the condition & the functionality of the product.
