Now here is a rather interesting proposition – Microsoft, a corporate giant in its own right, already has their very own retail website, not to mention have over 75 Microsoft Store brick-and-mortar locations which dot the landscape in the U.S. as well as Canada. The thing is, the company still has plans to expand their retail presence, and their latest effort in doing so would be through the announcement of their very own store on eBay.
According to the Microsoft blog,” By working with eBay, a top global shopping destination with more than 124 million active users globally, even more customers can now purchase their favorite Microsoft first-party products including Surface and Xbox, as well as accessories. Our customers can expect the same safe online shopping experience, return policy and free shipping from the Microsoft Store on eBay that they’ve come to expect on microsoftstore.com.”
Right now, the eBay page for Microsoft does seem to arrive with a limited supply of products in comparison to the main Microsoft Store site. It is still selling the previous generation Surface and Surface Pro tablets at a discount, instead of having the most recent Surface products on sale. While everyone is looking forward to the Xbox One this weekend, the eBay page is still pushing the aged Xbox 360 console. We wish Microsoft the very best in this endeavor! [Press Release]
