Amazon.com Inc. announced on Friday that it will sell more Apple products worldwide in time for the holiday season, as technology competitors have left previous differences to boost sales.
In the coming weeks, the world's largest online retailer will sell the latest versions of Apple's iPhone, iPad and other devices in the United States, Europe, Japan and India.
Amazon offered a limited offer of Apple that includes Mac computers and Beats headphones.
The deal emphasizes that leading brands such as Apple and Nike Inc., who have been opposed to product distribution across Amazon, are increasingly turning to the e-commerce web site because it has become a critical channel for users to reach. .
Amazon has also taken a stricter line of counterfeiting.
As of January 4, Amazon will remove Apple products from other non-licensed companies based in Cupertino, Calif.
However, customers can find add-ons that are not branded devices, such as headsets, that are Apple-compatible.
Until now, Apple products could not be found on Amazon or sold by third parties; ie buyers who bought and sold them on the platform at the price they consider.
Apple's stock continues to fall on the NASDAQ. On Friday it dropped 1.93%, and was already sold at $ 204.47.
As Apple announced its disappointing financial results for the third quarter of 2018, January 1, the value of capitalization fell by $ 1 billion and now amounts to about $ 970,000 million.
Two factors were affected during the fall: the disappointment of the investor after Apple announced that it will not offer again the number of units sold for the iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Second: The doubt in the demand for iPhone XR, which caused some economic agencies, reduce the valuation of stock market value. (With information from the agency)
