Apple has signed a deal with South Korea’s Amazon killer Coupang to start selling its products through the latter’s online store. The e-commerce firm has sold more than 120 million products till date and is the largest online in South Korea with over 25 million users.

Counpang’s CEO and founder Bom Kim confirmed that the e-commerce firm has started selling Apple products like the iPad Pro, Apple Watch Series 4, and MacBook Pro through its dedicated Apple Brand store. The online store offers a quick and hassle-free one-touch payment option to customers along with guaranteed delivery within 24 hours via its Rocket Delivery service.

“Coupang will be an attractive purchase channel for customers who love or want to experience Apple products,” said Navid Veiseh, Coupang’s senior vice president of global e-commerce.

“We will continue to expand the range of premium electronics brands like Apple, which, when combined with our Rocket delivery and RocketPay services, make Coupang the first place for customers to turn when shopping for premium electronics.”

It is unclear when Coupang will start selling iPhone and other Apple products through its online store.

Coupang has become an authorized seller of Apple products online in South Korea which means customers will receive genuine products and the standard one-year warranty on all the products they buy.

South Korea is the home to Samsung, one of Apple’s fiercest rival. The Cupertino company continues to operate in the country despite unfavorable business conditions.
