Also the pickup will only take place after OnePlus delivers the new smartphone.

Cashify will also verify if the device is in a working condition or not before paying the final amount. Users will also need to show an ID proof at the time of exchange, as OnePlus says this is done to ensure the customer is the actual owner of the product being handed over.
OnePlus India store has a buyback button on the site where users can check how much a device will fetch before deciding to make a purchase or going for the pickup offer. An Apple iPhone 6s with 64GB storage will get Rs 21,250 on the OnePlus India Store, though once we pointed out that the in-box earphones are missing and the device is not in warranty, the price was down to Rs 16,000. So the final price will be determined by the condition of the device, the bill, warranty, accessories, etc.
