The 32-step quality check covers everything from the device's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to its battery charging and fingerprint scanner. In the end, CompAsia does not only ensure device functionality, but even assigns cosmetic grading to ensure aesthetic appearance is satisfactory.

In response to the growing "re-commerce" movement, CompAsia has opened new e-stores in Singapore and Thailand in the past year. Over the pandemic, the company's e-store in Malaysia has seen a 2500% growth in business. CompAsia has transacted over 2 million devices to date, changing customers' mindsets in buying second-hand gadgets. When buying on a re-commerce site, customers are not only extending the lifespan of an item, but they are also reducing waste and contributing to a healthier planet.
