Apple brings in-store pickup service to Australia
Looking to buy online but don't want to deal with couriers? As of today, Apple is offering it's in-store "Personal Pickup" services to Australian customers shopping via its online store.
Personal Pickup is a service that allows customers to order and pay for products online, but then pick them up in a local Apple store of their choice. In stock items are often available same day, while out of stock items are shipped directly to a store for collection. Customers picking up a new device in store can also have it setup by Apple staff before they leave.
Apple says that customers can typically collect their order within an hour of a placing it, and will receive a notification email when it's ready to go.
While Personal Pickup has been available in the United States for a number of years, Australia is one of the very first international markets to receive the service. Personal Pickup is now also available in Canada.
