Apple iPhone 11 series price reduce by the online Platform
A week ago, Chinese online store, Suning announced a massive price drop for the Apple iPhone 11 series. Some price reductions were 1600 yuan ($225). Now, other Chinese online stores have joined Suning to announce different degrees of price reduction for the iPhone 11 series. Includes timples.
For example, the iPhone 11 64GB is selling for 4999 yuan ($709) on Suning which is 500 yuan ($71) cheaper than Apple’s official website. The iPhone 11 Pro Max 64GB has a 7,499 yuan ($1064) price tag which is 1600 yuan ($225) cheaper than Apple’s official website. On Jingdong, the iPhone 11 128GB version is selling for 5999 yuan ($851) which is the same as Apple’s official website. However, there is a 500 yuan ($71) discount coupon which takes the price to 5499 yuan ($780).
In addition, other online stores like Guam and Dangdang have different discounts on the price of the iPhone 11 series. Analysts believe the new era of iPhone price reductions is partly due to the removal of inventory during the outbreak. Additionally, it is preparing for the new arrival of the iPhone 12 series.
In addition, Apple collaborates with some e-commerce companies to launch Flash Delivery and Door-to-Door service. For example, last month, Apple introduced the home-based change service at its JD.com store. The project includes products like Apple iPhones, the latest iPad Pro, and Apple MacBook Air. In the past, these merchandising services need to go to Apple’s physical retail stores.
Other manufacturers such as Huawei and Vivo have a similar service. Huawei and Methuen recently signed an agreement. The deal has the capability of delivering homes to cities like Beijing and Shanghai.
According to the IDC’s Market Report in February this year, China’s smartphone shipments in the first quarter could be down 30% year over year. Another report by Canalys estimates that China’s smartphone shipments will decrease by 50% year-on-year in the year 12020.
