The Marketplace was powered by Amazon under a program they called an “aStore” but all products displayed were personally selected by the Apple Tech Talk staff.
Amazon recently announced a change to their policy and discontinued the aStore service. This change affected not only Apple Tech Talk, but all members of the Amazon Affiliate program that used the aStore service.
We think the Marketplace is a great benefit for our readers and wanted to find a way to continue to provide you a similar Marketplace experience without losing the variety and security that comes from shopping on Amazon. That’s why we are excited to announce that today, after several months of work, we are releasing an updated version of the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace.
The Apple Tech Talk Marketplace is your one stop shop for the products we review on Apple Tech Talk, organized in easy to understand categories, that will allow you to compare products and prices. In addition, we’ll include items that we may not have reviewed but which we believe represent great options that are worth your consideration.
We’ll continue do our best to keep the product list fresh and will eliminate expired products and add updated models as we become aware of them.
While you’re there, check out our Bargain Buys section. There you will find a hand-picked selection of products available at significant savings. Some are previous year models and most are Certified Refurbished by Amazon or the original manufacturer and come with a warranty. Our Bargain Buys offer you the opportunity to land some great hardware at big savings.
The Apple Tech Talk Marketplace is still powered by Amazon.com and includes all of the product details and buying options you expect. You can be sure that you are making your purchases with the security and reliability that Amazon provides as well as the most current selling price. If you are a member of Amazon Prime, qualifying purchases made through the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace offer the same free shipping options.
If you have not yet joined Amazon Prime, you don’t know what you are missing. For one low monthly fee you get free 2-Day shipping on most Amazon purchases and access to thousands of movies, TV shows and original programing through the Amazon Prime Video service. There’s also millions of songs available at the push of a button with Amazon Prime Music. Why not click on the link below and join today.
Apple Tech Talk is an official member of the Amazon Affiliates program. If you are a regular Amazon shopper, we encourage you to enter Amazon through our Marketplace for all of your shopping needs, since all purchases made through the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace, even for products not specifically listed on our site, may result in an affiliate payment to us. The commission earned from your purchases help support our site by offsetting the cost of operating appletechtalk.com.
Our goal hasn’t changed and we want to make the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace meet your needs. If there is a particular type of product you would like to see in the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace, or a specific item you think we should add, please let us know and we’ll do our best to get it listed for you.
We hope you enjoy our redesigned Apple Tech Talk Marketplace and use it often. Remember that purchases made through the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace help support our efforts and allow us to continue to bring you the product reviews, tips and tricks and other Apple related information you value.
