- Apple is working on a new EasyPay Online Ordering service for retail stores
- It will enable customers to make purchases in-store and have the products delivered directly to their home or office
- The service is expected to arrive in August
Apple retail stores are gearing up to offer home delivery service to its customers. According to Mark Guruman, the Cupertino giant is developing a new mode of delivery system for its devices. Let’s take a closer look at Apple’s upcoming service.
Apple EasyPay Delivery Service
The company is said to introduce ‘EasyPay Online Ordering’ in its retail stores. This new service will enable customers to make purchases in-store and have the products delivered directly to their homes or office. It will also offer various fulfilment methods, like home shipping and product personalization, all in a single transaction.
According to Gurman, Apple stores will launch EasyPay Online Ordering in August. Customers can buy in-store, choose home delivery, and use EasyPay machines for quick shipping within days.
Eriler store employees could only suggest online purchases or help customers place orders on the website. But the new delivery service aims to integrate home shipping directly into Apple retail EasyPay terminals.
Apple’s shift to providing home delivery services marks a notable departure from its traditional in-store sales approach. Given the rising competition from online retailers such as Amazon, this strategic move could potentially give Apple a competitive edge and enhance convenience for customers residing far from an Apple Store when purchasing their products.
Apple’s EasyPay Online Ordering program could streamline inventory in physical stores while offering customers greater convenience for heavy items like iMacs, delivering products straight to their homes.
Moreover, speculations suggest this move may pave the way for home delivery of Apple’s Vision Pro mixed reality headset. With various combinations of headbands, light seals, and prescription lens inserts, stocking all variants in stores would be tough. Shipping delivery would ensure fulfilment, even if specific components aren’t readily available, preventing the potential loss of high-value sales.
