Paris based Back Market, which was founded in 2014 is an online marketplace dedicated to the re-selling of refurbished devices which connects buyers with third-party sellers.
It has six million customers across 16 countries and aggregates approved sellers, while unlike MusicMagpie, it does not purchase or hold stock, or carry out the refurbishment process itself.
MusicMagpie chief executive and co-founder Steve Oliver said: “MusicMagpie and Back Market operate complementary models and have a shared mission to challenge consumers to rethink their tech product consumption, make restored devices mainstream, and tackle the growing problem of e-waste.
“This is therefore an exciting partnership that will help MusicMagpie’s products reach a wider audience and give Back Market users a greater breadth of choice. We look forward to working with Back Market in what we are confident will be a long and fruitful relationship.”
