Raspberry Pi Amazon Proces

Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:26 am

I decided to have a look for Raspberry Pi Zero W's on Amazon because I did not think that they had the order limit... well anyway I found 1 for $22 by Raspberry Pi. This is outrageous.

Everyone has an order limit, although if you are buying in large quantities we can do deals at a higher price.

People selling on Amazon are nothing to do with the Foundation, and we have no control over pricing there. My advice would be that if it is too expensive for you, don't buy it.

Always worth checking who the seller actually is rather than believing the "by" name.

If you want to buy multiple I would recommend checking the official re-sellers, some of them have a pre-soldered header version which can be sold to you in a higher multiple (I've seen 20)
