    trade in

    Scenario 1)

    My bottle of supplement has not yet been opened and is still remained sealed. I want to sell it to May and get the full amount of money back.

    Can I say:

    I want to resell the bottle of supplement to May.
    __________________________________________________ _____________

    Scenario 2)

    close to scenario 1, I just want to have part of the amount of the money I paid for the supplement so I can get rid of it ASAP.

    Can I say:

    I want to trade in the supplement with May.

    __________________________________________________ _______
    Thank you.

    Afterthought: there's also the term 'part-exchange', but that is chiefly used (I think...) to buy new things in return for a combination of <something> and some cash.
