Microsoft Store opens on Ebay
Microsoft has expanded its retail footprint Down Under this week with the launch of a virtual store on Ebay.
Owned and operated by Microsoft Australia, the store extends Microsoft’s reach to the 11.3 million monthly visitors, or one in two online shoppers in Australia, who come to Ebay already.
According to a statement provided by Microsoft, the Ebay store features many of the best-in-class products and brands customers have come to love, including Surface, Xbox, a full range of PCs, accessories and software.
And it offers consumers a convenient, secure and complementary shopping experience to Microsoft’s physical flagship store in Pitt Street Sydney, and online retail platform, microsoft.com.
“With the launch of the Microsoft Store on Ebay, we’re making it easy for the millions of Australian Ebay users to discover and purchase their favourite Microsoft products with the assurance of the same safe online shopping experience, return policy and free shipping that they have come to expect from microsoft.com,” said Fiona Sims, the online store manager for Microsoft Store Australia & New Zealand.
Yunyeong Kim, the director of strategic partnerships and retail growth at Ebay, said: “We are thrilled to extend the power of the eBay platform to such an innovative brand and welcome Microsoft Store as our newest retail partner.”
