Has Apple launched ‘own eBay store’?
London: Officially refurbished Apple products are now available on eBay, a move that suggests the iPhone maker company has opened its own store on the auction site.
The store carries no branding, but sources cited by 9to5Mac claimed the store is a trial run for an official Apple store to sell refurbished products online.
The Apple retailer appeared on eBay about a month ago and, according to 9to5Mac, “has been hiding in plain site ever since”.
According to the Telegraph, it is branded as a “Refurbished Outlet”, and features no corporate or contact information.
Its reviews, however, are 99.7 percent positive, despite no information on where objects are from, the report said.
According to the paper, the move, while uncharacteristic for the iPad-maker, would bring it into line with other PC manufacturers, including Dell and HP, as well as retailers such as Argos and Tesco.
eBay has become a popular place for manufacturers to shift excess stock efficiently, as the site has pushed itself forward as a digital high street for bargain products.
