Now that the quarantine is going to be extended another 15 days, according to some sources close to the Government, there are not a few companies that have decided to join teleworking. Mobility and versatility are the two most important factors when it comes to working from home. Having a device that allows us to make video calls, in addition to executing the tasks that our workflow demands or playing games to clear the mind is essential in these days of confinement.
Back Market, marketplace dedicated to the sale of reconditioned products, has recently presented the promotion "We stay at home, but well equipped" aimed at setting up teleworking and leisure at home with products such as smart watches, laptops or convertible computers and consoles for leisure. Some even with discounts of up to 70% on the original price of the product, as we will see below.
First of all, what is Back Market and what advantages does it offer?
It is a well-known refurbished product platform with 6 years of experience and a huge catalog of electronics items. Its greatest advantage lies precisely in the price: all its products have a discount that ranges between 30 and 70% of the market value.
Like any store that operates in Europe, all items have a 2-year warranty period with 14 days of withdrawal if we are not satisfied with the device in question. Regarding the quality and condition of the items sold through the platform, Back Market has more than 1,000 certified professionals with strict quality controls and meticulous test periods.
Currently, the platform has five different types of status depending on the condition of the item: Stallone, Correct, Good condition, Very good and Impeccable. Regardless of the state, Back Market ensures the correct functioning of all components after being subjected to restoration and cleaning processes, with the consequent positive impact on the environment that this entails. Specifically, the company speaks of a saving of 1,700 tons of electronic waste and 72 megatons of raw materials since the platform operates on the Internet.
And what about the payment methods? Back Market supports payment through PayPal and credit and debit cards. All without leaving home, as the company is committed to operating normally during the days of confinement due to the coronavirus and even to keeping all products clean and free of contagion . It also undertakes to deliver as soon as possible. Of course, it must be borne in mind that being a store that varies offers, sometimes the models will be sold with an Anglo-Saxon keyboard. In these cases, you can easily change the keyboard layout through Windows settings.
