Play N Trade Launches Refueled for its Franchisees

Refueled is a program benefiting the Play N Trade system by initiating a sell back option on all consumer electronics.

San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2013 - Play N Trade has launched a premier program that allows franchisees to trade in their consumer electronics to corporate for credit toward royalties. Refueled is a cost effective way for a franchise owner to save on royalties and to increase cash flow. Consumer electronics include all cell phones “dead or alive,” tablets, and portable media players. It also provides an internal market of consumer electronics for owners that need to purchase items.

This program is effective immediately and available to all stores. Since its introduction many franchise owners have participated and have capitalized on this initiative. However, the program will re-launch May 15th, 2013 with a widespread internal media campaign and a courtesy corporate call to inform all franchisees of this exciting opportunity.

Jeff Lawrence, jeff.lawrence(at)playntrade(dot)com, Manager of Consumer Electronics at Play N Trade comments about this initiative, “Refueled fits the new consumer product base with the option to sell back to corporate rather than reselling items that may be less than desirable. This eliminates the burden of sitting on inventory that is less than desirable such as scratched items and bad phones with ESN’s (electronic serial numbers). Additionally, an added bonus to the franchisee is to keep good items for sale and trade in items that are not selling internally. In addition, this is the most cost effective way to save on royalties.”

Since the introduction of consumer electronics in every Play N Trade worldwide, there has been an ongoing process to improve the “buy back” policy. Refueled is this type of program, as it allows the franchisor to reduce their royalties per month, and eliminate unwanted inventory. This also improves the ability to take in any consumer electronic that a customer may bring in which include scratched, broken and outdated items. This keeps trade in dollars at a high rate and customer satisfaction on the forefront. Refueled supports our stores by having every Play N Trade saying to their customers, “Yes! We Buy It.”
