TikTok Shop UK ‘refurbished technology’ category
The TikTok community can now buy second-hand mobile phones and tablets directly through TikTok Shop, thanks to the new ‘refurbished technology’ category launching on the platform. Starting today, people can purchase refurbished tech products from leading merchants including eFones (@efones.com), Box.co.uk (@boxcouk) and Yoltso (@yoltso) in just a few simple clicks on TikTok Shop.
TikTok Shop is working with top software companies including Blackbelt Defence and PhoneCheck to ensure shoppers can buy their favourite gadgets and tech products with confidence, safe in the knowledge that each individual item has passed rigorous testing, quality control and has received certification.
As our community continues using TikTok to find great deals and affordable ways to shop their favourite products, the #MoneySavingTips hashtag has become one of the fastest growing hashtags on the platform (1.6 billion views), while hashtags including #UsediPhone (100 million views) are also growing rapidly. Now, our community will be able to purchase high-quality electronic goods at lower price points through TikTok Shop.
We are excited at the opportunity to launch the refurbished technology category with the Tiktok Shop team in the UK, and have been eagerly waiting for this category since eFones launched with Tiktok two years ago. The opportunity to exhibit the quality of our products through short videos and live streams is unique to Tiktok, and we expect to see some amazing content and sales on the platform.– Emily Gallant, Director, eFones
It comes as TikTok Shop UK continues to expand its range of product categories for people to buy directly on the platform. Recent launches include ‘Pets‘, ‘Parenting‘, ‘Wellness‘, and ‘Books‘, enabling the TikTok community to discover and purchase a wide range of products without leaving the app.
