Raspberry Pi Zero Board is Back in Stock at Pimoroni

February 22nd, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments
Orange Pi Development Boards

Raspberry Pi Zero has been quite popular when it launched due to its $5 price tag, excluding shipping and taxes. It’s been too popular actually, as manufacturing could not keep pace with demand, and resellers soon had to show it as Out of Stock, or simply decided to complete pull out the product page such as Element 14.
Raspberry_Pi_ZeroThe supply tightness has lasted a few weeks, and recently I showed on GearBest for $19.10 including shipping, but it’s now out of stock, and the company expects to get more boards mid March… This also led to a website called whereismypizero.com which automatically tracks stock on some of the main distributors, namely Element14, Adafruit,  The PiHut, Pimoroni, and Raspberry Pi Swag. The good news is that it is back on Pimoroni, where you can get a Raspberry Pi Zero board for 4.25 GBP ($6), unless you live outside of Europe, and you don’t need to pay VAT, and it’s back to the original 3.54 GBP (~$5) + shipping.


But I don’t suppose it will be in stock for very long.

[Update 24/02/2016: Out of stock in Pimoroni, but now in stock at The Pi Hut]

Thanks to Gabe for the tip.

    I’ve purchased one finally. Total with shipping: £9.04 ($12.74).

    When PayPal exchange rate fees are taken into account that exactly the same price I’ve paid for Orange Pi One…

    10EUR shipping to Belgium.

    Lol. How is that possible? Standard shipping to Thailand was about $7.

    10EUR shipping included I meant:

    Subtotal : £3.54 GBP
    VAT : £0.71 GBP
    Shipping : £4.00 GBP
    Total : £8.25 GBP

    8.25GBP == 10.54EUR

    Note that the cost of the shipping is the cost of the device itself 🙂 I think for people in the UK, it was free shipping…

    My home is in Diksmuide. If it’s to far then I haven’t a solution, belgian mail is also expensive…

    cheap but can’t buy, so they try to learn China Xiaomi? Fortunately there are many other options and I didn’t need hang on this one.

    If I remember correctly you are based in China, in which case Raspberry Pi Zero is not such a good deal, due to the extra shipping fee compared to the competition.

  12. February 23rd, 2016 at 11:47 | #12

    Sharing shipping is not an option, since you are limited to one board per order.

    Well, if they refill stocks with only small quantities, I would just avoid losing time on any articles or videos talking about the new hack/cool thing done with the PiZero.
