If this is your first time visiting a pawn shop, you should understand the differences between pawning and selling an item:

  • Pawn: To pawn something is to trade a valuable item to the pawn shop for some fast cash. The pawn shop will keep your item in a secure place until you are able to buy it back. Essentially, if you don’t pay your loan back in a certain number of days, then the pawn shop owns your item and will try to sell it to cover its losses.
  • Sell: When you are selling an item, you are handing over the ownership of the item to the pawn shop for a sum of money, giving them the right to sell it on their own time.

In order to make the transactions go smoothly for both parties, A Happy Pawn provides pawn brokers to help their customers figure out what deal is best for them. Don’t be intimidated by the idea of meeting with a pawn broker. They will work with you and offer advice to help find the best deal that’s suited for you.
