SWAG Store

Mon Feb 29, 2016 8:46 pm

Dear Rapberry Pi Team, dear Forum-Users,

now that the Pi 3 came out I wanted to buy it together with a display and a few other things in the "SWAG Store", like it was possible before, but noticed that they don't sell Pis and accessories anymore, only Magazines, books and all kinds of merchandise.

What happened? Are they going to sell Pis again? When?

If a thread with this subject already exists feel free to point it out to me and delete this one here.

Thanks a lot!

There was some message that they didn't want http://swag.raspberrypi.org/ to compete with their resellers, but I can't find it now. You can buy Pi:s etc in other shops, e.g. https://www.pi-supply.com/ https://shop.pimoroni.com/ http://thepihut.com/

The Swag store stuff was being fulfilled by one of the resellers anyway, and I guess that by giving that reseller a branded storefront on the official site is somewhat favouring them.
