This month, Amazon and Apple reached a new deal that will expand the official Apple product offerings on Amazon.com.
ALGO™ Online Retail founder, Beau Crabill explained what this new deal means for third party sellers in a recent YouTube Video.
According to Beau Crabill;
- Authorized sellers are now officially allowed to sell all Apple products on Amazon.com (except Apple's HomePod smart speaker)
- Apple will be working with Amazon to build official product listing for Apple Products (authorized third party sellers will be able to list under these listing)
- Amazon will not have an exclusive rights to sell Apple products on Amazon and will let third party sellers sell Apple
- Becoming an authorized re-seller of Apple on Amazon is do-able but not easy. Beau is an authorized re-seller of Apple products (it will take at least 6 months to get authorized to sell Apple products)
In the video, Beau also explains the criteria for becoming an authorized Apple Re-Seller on Amazon...
Step 1: Work with an Authorized Apple Supplier (that sells other electronics too) for at least six months to build a relationship with them.
Step 2: Ask the supplier to offer you an Apple Authorization Application (after working with them for at least 6-months)
Beau Crabill is one of the few authorized re-sellers selling Apple products on Amazon and the foremost expert on the subject. If you want to learn from Beau, he is hosting Free Online Workshop this month.
