Can I sell test strips that are expired?
No. We can only buy unexpired test strips. You can donate expired test strips. Please note we only pay full price for test strips with a full 3 months until expiration. We will purchase test strips that have 1 to 2 months until expiration at 25% of our full price. For example, a box that is normally $10 would be $2.50 if it expires in 1-2 months.
When I sell test strips should I remove prescription labels on the boxes?
No. We will remove prescription labels in a way that does not damage the boxes. When you sell test strips with prescription labels we will remove the labels and shred them to protect your identity. Feel free to use a magic marker to mark through identifying information. Please make sure you do not write on the box when marking through personal information. Please note, if the expiration date or lot number has been marked through or torn from the box we can not purchase it.
Is it legal to sell test strips online?
Yes, in most cases. Any product that can be purchased over the counter at a pharmacy can be legally resold, even if the product was originally prescribed. There are a few instances where it is not legal to sell test strips, these include: test strips originally purchased by Medicaid or Medicare and stolen test strips. Read our blog on When is it illegal to sell my diabetic test strips for more information.
Are there items that you can not accept even on donation?
We do not accept: brands of lancets that are not listed on our website, alcohol prep pads, syringes, meters, glucose tablets, magazines, books, instruction manuals, or any item that is not factory sealed.
Do you price match your competitors?
Yes we price match our competitors. To receive a price match you must place a piece of paper inside your package that has a list of the products you would like price matched as well as the competitor’s web address. To qualify for a price match the product must be identical to the product the competitor purchases. Please note that most of our competitors vary their prices based on box style (mail order vs retail), box condition, and expiration date and you need to meet their requirements for a price match. For example, if the competitor requires a box to have 12+ months until expiration for a particular price and your box has 9 months until expiration then we could not provide a price match. We only price match products that are listed on our website. A full list of our products can be found on our selling form. We will only price match companies that purchase diabetic supplies; we do not price match companies that sell diabetic supplies.
When I sell test strips is there a maximum refund I can get at one time?
There is no maximum refund when you sell test strips on our website, you can sell as many boxes as you would like.
Can I send just one box?
We prefer that you send at least 2 boxes per shipment because we are charged a minimum of $6.50 per package for shipping. It gets very expensive for us if you use our shipping label to send a single box. If you only have one box to send we ask that you send your package through First-Class Mail instead of using our shipping label. We will reimburse your shipping charges. You can ship your package to Sell Your Strips for More, PO Box 4690, Lawrence, KS 66046.
After I sell test strips what happens to them?
After you sell test strips, lot numbers and expiration dates are checked to make sure they are safe for use. Once they pass the safety checkpoint, diabetic supplies are offered to uninsured/under-insured people at low-cost or donated to individuals in emergency situations.
Can I sell test strips that are not listed on the website?
We purchase all brands of test strips. If the brand you want to sell is not listed we will purchase each 50 count box for $0.50 and 100 count boxes for $1. To sell test strips that are not listed on our website, select the item named “Unlisted Brand of Test Strips.” You are also welcome to donate any brand of test strips.
What if I want to sell test strips that are in a damaged box or have a broken safety seal?
We are the only company that buys damaged boxes without a price reduction. We know enough people in need that do not care about the condition of the box. Companies that purchase only boxes in excellent condition or discount damaged boxes are reselling your test strips to big companies and not to people in need. Any item with a broken safety seal can not be purchased because we can not guarantee that the supplies have not been compromised. If you send test strips that are not in a sealed box they will not be purchased. You are welcome to donate test strips that are not in a sealed box and they will be donated to a family with a diabetic pet. Also we ask that you please do not send loose lancets, even if they are for donation, if caps fall off during shipping they are a risk to our staff.
How should I ship the test strips?
Print out our prepaid shipping label. Place your test strips in a box; use crumpled paper or packing material to ensure the boxes don’t get damaged during shipping. Tape the prepaid shipping label to your package. We recommend taping around all edges and corners of the label to ensure it does not accidentally get torn off during shipping. Your package can be dropped off at the post office or picked up by your postal carrier. You are responsible for your package until it arrives at our warehouse, please make sure the package is securely sealed and will not easily break open during shipping. We recommend that you get tracking and/or signature confirmation on valuable packages. We will reimburse signature confirmation if you sell over $150 worth of supplies if you provide us with a postage receipt.
What if I am not able to print the Prepaid Shipping Label?

How long does it take to receive payment after I sell test strips?
