PayMore franchisees

I’ve been a multi-unit restaurant franchisee and am now a PayMore franchisee. Anyone interested in franchising should look at PayMore. Lower opening costs, great numbers, easier to run, and the country is wide open. Restaurant franchising is getting tougher and tougher… PayMore is so much easier that I wouldn’t do restaurants ever again.

Dan and Lindsay Lowe, multi-unit franchise owners of PayMore Electronics

Our Story

PayMore Stores was founded in 2011 in Massapequa, New York a small community in Long Island, to solve the problem of old and broken electronics piling up in landfills. Our mission is to repurpose old electronics and recirculate them back into the marketplace, to help reduce the country’s e-waste footprint. To meet demand, the first PayMore Stores location served customers across the U.S. and around the world.

To incentivize e-waste recycling, PayMore Stores delivers the strongest level of personal data protection available on the market and the highest trade-in values. Customers who trade in old devices for cash know their data will be wiped clean before electronics are resold. PayMore Stores also offers exceptional deals on gently used and repurposed electronics protected by industry-leading warranties.

The first PayMore Stores location received strong local support in Massapequa, NY for its environmentally friendly trade-in service. The store saw high volumes in trade-ins and used electronics sales and became a highly valued member of the community, serving as a local electronics hub with highly knowledgeable staff.

To help meet demand for the brand’s green-friendly concept, President Erik Helgesen and CEO Stephen Preuss launched franchise opportunities nationwide. In addition to offering a place to buy, sell and trade electronics safely in communities across the country, the company’s franchise opportunities offer electronic savvy entrepreneurs an exciting opportunity to own their own business with a strong foundation based on hands-on training and one-on-one corporate leadership support.

Starting with one small brick and mortar storefront, PayMore Stores has grown to the highest grossing secondhand electronics dealer in Long Island, serving more than 30,000 customers. Today, PayMore Stores has over 35 locations operating in 21 different states with over 270 units in development. They have signed multiple multi-unit franchise owners from Firehouse Subs, uBreakiFx, Domino’s, Tim Horton’s, and more!

Lizzy S., Yelp

They're not kidding about paying top dollar for electronics- after going to another store which claimed to pay top dollar, but offered next to nothing, I stopped into PayMore and Mike gave me a more than fair deal for my old iPhone and iPod. Not to mention the process took less than 10 mins and I left with cash in hand. Super friendly staff, honest business practice.
