Apple company has started iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales in India on October 17th. And Apple sold half a million units of the iPhone in this country during the October-December quarter, according to a senior analyst at Counterpoint Research.
This number was reached as Apple found the exact figures as a the leading trade partners in India. However this sales number is nearly double of what the Apple managed to sell during the same timeframe last year after the release of the iPhone 5s. Interestingly, that Cupertino company in India sold 1 million units of the iPhone during the January to September 2014 period.
As there is a great demand for the new iPhones, Apple company will now be reducing the credit period of retailers to seven days and their margins by 0.5-1 percent. So you will have an ability to buy iPhone 6 in India in short period of time. Apple is hoping to promote its profitability by this move and to curb the offers given by different e-commerce sites in India. Issued by the company, the trade advisory also tells retailers not to invest in any in-store marketing as the Apple will be handling them directly.
Some of major OEMs as Samsung provide retailers with a credit period of 14-15 days. The margin offered by companies to retailers varies greatly on their performance and the model sold by them. Apple has generally provided retailers with a margin of 9-11% on every unit of the iPhone sold. There also will be no exception for iPhone 6 Plus sales in India.
