Why Aren't iPhones Sold on Amazon AU?

Any reason on why there’s listings for most of Apple’s products sold by Amazon, but not for any of Apple’s iPhone?

    Everybody claims the parcel didn't arrive. Nobody wants to be selling a low-margin product in a high-risk marketplace like Amazon.

    • Sure there is a risk but doubt this is the reason. Sold in many other Amazon regions.

      But they is. They’s refurbished though…

      • But that raises the question - why is the refurbished ones sold but the new ones isn't?

        • Why's that's the question?

    Most likely because Apple probably has a shitload of conditions that conflicts with Amazon's.

    Because Apple won't pay 30% of the price to have Amazon warehouse its products

    Apples controls the price you buy at, and sell at. They basically say you make xyz on each sale.

    Amazon also charges fees etc. These fees are more than the profit Apple allows, so yeah….. Do the math.

      Understand the law here

      Apples controls the price you buy at, and sell at

      The first is correct (it controls the price the retailer buys at)

      The second is illegal (it controls the price the retailer sells at)

      • The second is illegal (it controls the price the retailer sells at)

        Better miele and a heap of other brands that 'fix' the selling price then they can't do that.

        • Not much need. They know the law:

          Could be why you cannot buy Apple products on Amazon. Companies like JB Hifi are likely to follow the suggestions; Amazon has this funny price dancing tendency Apple would no doubt hate.

            As I said above, they don't sell on Amazon as there isn't enough profit in them to do so.

            Apple has 'suggestions' for sure, miele works around the price fixing by the store being an agent and not the one selling etc

  • returns policy could be a nuisance for Apple
