It’s a large bouquet of gadgets this season from Microsoft. We have the likes of new Nokia Lumia devices, the second generation Surface, and the Xbox One. Just in time for your holiday shopping, Microsoft has opened their official Microsoft Store on eBay in the US.
However, ironically, none of these are listed on the Store as yet, not even the already available Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. At the moment, the Store features following products:
- Surface RT and Surface Pro
- Xbox 360 and Kinect sensor
- Surface and Xbox accessories
- Select Microsoft keyboards and mice
Microsoft promises the same return policy and free ground shipping from the Microsoft Store on eBay as on http://microsoftstore.com. The Store accepts PayPal and major credit cards via the PayPal system. The Store also lists select refurbished products, tested and certified by Microsoft, with a 1-year warranty.
I’m hoping the missing products would soon arrive on Microsoft Store on eBay. At this moment, most online retailers too have limited stocks of Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. Also, it’s not yet clear if the Store would offer Windows Phone devices and accessories from different OEMs/carriers like they do at http://microsoftstore.com.
While Microsoft has been progressively increasing their retail footprint with specialty retail stores – 81 as of now – the global online shopping destination will offer a great alternative to http://microsoftstore.com.
