“As part of a new agreement with Apple, we are working with a select group of authorized resellers to offer an expanded selection of Apple and Beats products, including new releases, in Amazon’s stores,” the email says. “You are receiving this message because you are currently selling, or have previously sold, Apple or Beats products. Your existing offers for those products will soon be removed from Amazon’s online store in the United States. Please contact Apple if you would like to apply to become an authorized reseller on Amazon.”

Apple products (officially) come to Amazon

Nov. 9, 2018 11:59 AM ET|About: Apple Inc. (AAPL)|By: Brandy Betz, SA News Editor
Amazon (AMZN -2.5%) strikes a deal with Apple (AAPL -2.4%) to sell its products directly through the e-commerce platform.

Amazon has sold Apple products before but generally through third-party sellers, which can cause some price disparities.

Apple products will start rolling out on Amazon over the next few weeks in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan, and India.

Only Apple or Apple-authorized resellers will be able to sell through Amazon and the site will start removing third-party listings on January 4.

But every product isn’t coming. Apple’s HomePod, which competes with Amazon’s Echo, won’t be along for the trip.

"Ti Kwan Leep" is one of my most favorite comedy bits EVER. Foolish Ed Gruberman!

I see this as a win for both parties.
I have bought Apple products for Amazon in the past when there was no taxes.
I wonder what will happen to knock off cables?

So much fake kit is sold on Amazon, and if they're going to sell Apple gear again, then I'd like to improve the odds of not getting taken.

When it comes to buying refurbed Apple gear, I know anybody to trust other than Apple.

all who would be called good

There is no safety for honest men

Well, this explains why Apple is downsizing the VAR program. Was wondering.
