Sell it yourself. Don't go with a low-ball offer from a trade-in. If you were to trade it in to Samsung, you would run the risk of them saying something was wrong with it and lowerng the value, or flat out denying the trade and you'd be out your S9. They don't ship phones back.

I generally sell there if I can't find a buyer locally. For Pixel, iPhone and Samsung phones I easily find a buyer locally. For smaller OEMs like LG, HTC, Sony I don't find that much interest in buyers and I use swappa where eventually it sells. I have good experience selling there but if you are unfortunate you can always get a bad buyer or someone trying to scam you etc anywhere.
Is Swappa better for selling or just buying?

Any site that uses PayPal is better for buying. Great buyer protection with PayPal. Seller protection is not as good. Too easy for a buyer to use a phone for a while then make up some excuse to cover his/her buyers remorse. Only Craigslist or other similar personal to person sales is optimal for the seller.

That said I've sold and bought multiple phones on Swappa without any serious problems.

$450 for a pixel 2 XL isn't exactly a low ball offer. $480 is the going rate currently on Swappa. But generally I agree it's better to sell yourself than do a trade in.

I'm doing a trade with my s8 plus via samsung. My Note 8 I will keep as a backup for a few weeks just in case we have the exploding battery or something LOL and then I will sell that.

The fleamarket I have my booth at has a big cell shop that sells and buys used phones. Do you think they'd low ball me on an offer to sell the Note?

The scams is what I'm afraid of.

Yeah I hear you, I'm worried as well whenever I sell something and it involves PayPal. PayPal is so buyer friendly so it's always a risk. I have sold around 9 phones on swappa till now and luckily never had any issues. Try to make sure you send to the buyers verified PayPal address, make sure to take a video of the phone before packing and even record yourself packing etc just in case if it's needed later.

This is correct. I had a buyer on Swappa get buyer's remorse and wanted the money back despite my "no returns" policy. He made up an excuse saying the display was all scratched up (it wasn't--I took pictures) and Swappa believed me over him.
