At PayMore Stores Your Digital Privacy is Our First Priority

As the number of high-tech devices we interact with and increasingly depend on every day continues to grow, from mobile phones and voice-activated assistants, to smart home appliances and GPS-enabled wearable fitness tools; protecting our personal data is becoming more important that ever.

According to a 2016 study on data privacy from the Pew Research Center, just 9% of American’s feel “in control” of the information that is collected about them. A huge number – 74% – say that it’s ‘very important’ to be in control of your own personal data and 60% said they would like to do more to protect their privacy.

PayMore is responding to consumer data privacy concerns by training our workforce on how to wiping protection

Each PayMore store takes our customers’ privacy and data security very seriously. To ensure the privacy of each of our customers, our store owners and technicians are highly trained in data security and all customer data is removed from each used electronic device we purchase before it is re-sold. In addition, customers can have their devices wiped on the spot before they leave the store.

PayMore customers know that they not only received top dollar for their used electronics, including iPhones, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and game systems; but their privacy and data security has been protected and their personal information will not be accessed, shared, or sold by the device’s next user, hackers, or anyone else.

PayMore’s local stores help reduce the hassle for consumers wishing to sell used electronics for cash and the one-on-one personal interaction with trained store employees that we provide helps protect data privacy and reduce fraud. Our locations offer a safe, walk-in location to buy, sell and trade electronic devices for cash. We pay highly competitive rates for new, used, and even broken tech devices; and we provide an alternative to selling online to someone you don’t know and trust.

Alternative options to sell used electronics for cash can offer a risky solution for consumers worried about data security. For example, when mailing in a device to an online store or website; you have no assurance that your personal data, as well as information about your contacts; will be completely deleted before re-sale. In addition, many pawn shop owners who don’t focus on technology do not have the technical skills to ensure customer data protection by completely wiping all information before offering devices for re-sale.

At PayMore, we are proud to play an important role in protecting the privacy and data security of our customers, who visit a PayMore location to sell electronics for cash, including iPhones and other mobile devices that capture loads of personal data on consumers, some without our own knowledge of what they are really collecting.

PayMore started in 2011 with our first store in Massapequa, NY. Today, it is the largest electronics buy and sell store on Long Island, with three locations, more than 15 full time employees and serving 39,000 customers throughout New York. PayMore’s new franchise opportunities will help grow our footprint across the country, with plans for 50 new locations before 2021.
