buy multiple pi zero w?

Mon Nov 12, 2018 3:24 am

This is a new thread for the pi zero w since the other 'where do I buys' are on the other models.

so,
where the heck can I purchase 20 pi zero w units? I need these for a project but all I can find is 'limit 1'

You did not look. This exact question has been asked hear dozens of times. Some very recently.

You can buy multiple units of the Pi0WH

Your only other alternative is send an email to the Raspberry Pi foundation and prepare to pay a lot more $$$ per unit.

I'm 15 pages deep in the search and I've only found the thread about getting hundreds by emailing.

The WH definitely works for me, I'm soldiering on some headers anyway, but even those are showing up as 1 per customer *or* they are at least $17.

The point is that the zeros are sold at such a low price no profit is being made on them. That is why there is a limit of one per customer. Think of it like a limited special offer.

If you want to buy in bulk then the Foundation has to ensure it's not losing money by selling at a higher price.

I have no idea what a bulk purchase price may be. Your only course of action is to contact the Foundation and see what kind of deal you can get.

I don’t need huge bulk, I just don’t want to be paying double . If I could get the w for $15 at qty 20 I’d be quite happy.

You can buy multiple Pi0WH from the usual sources. They're $15 each (plus the normal taxes and shipping). Check Pimoroni and PiHut for example.

Microcenter in the States, but you have to go there in person to get them.

Only the Zero WH can be bought in bigger quantities.

$15/$17 is about right for the WH, that's the price that makes everyone in the supply chain happy. This is the model that is intended to be purchased in quantity.

Note you are not 'paying double', you are paying the actual price. It's the other models that have educational pricing, and therefor are one per person only.
