You would already be alert that Apple’s new iPhone 7 that was commenced on September 7 in San Francisco will be made accessible in India from October 7. But did you really knew about the platform which is going to sell iPhone 7? Well, e-commerce website Flipkart will be selling out iPhone 7 in India.
Yes, you read correctly. Apple, for the foremost time, has aligned with a consumer-facing online participant to sell its iPhone 7. The Bangalore-based etailer’s platform is going to directly source iPhone 7 from Apple. There is going to be no third-party sellers at this point of time as done in previous years.
The e-commerce corporation which is already an official online seller for all Apple products such as iPad and Mac will now be able to acquire the latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones unswervingly from Apple.
The development was first detailed by online portal BGR.in. However, presently there is no official verification either by Flipkart or Apple India representative yet.
It is significant to note that until now only Infibeam has been advertising iPhones in India, whereas Flipkart sold iPad and Mac. However, Infibean will be given the new iPhones directly but it will no longer be the mass seller of the phones and wouldn’t be dealing with customers directly.
Flipkart, which possesses the biggest e-tail marketplace share in India, has previously dedicated a new microsite for the promotion of the iPhone 7. The e-commerce corporation generates a major base of its revenues by the sale of the smartphone.
The corporation between Flipkart and Apple is most likely to profit the e-commerce major at a time when it is in front of stiff competition from American rival Amazon. The tie-up might help provide fresh enthusiasm during the festival period sales.
