Buying a Raspberry Pi Zero suddenly got a lot easier

People living in 13 countries, including China, India, and Brazil, will be able to buy the Pi Zero and Zero W directly for the first time.

Getting hold of the credit card-sized Raspberry Pi computer if you’re based outside of the US or the UK is not always straightforward.

Spin-off boards like the memory module-sized $5 Raspberry Pi Zero and recently launched $10 Zero W can be particularly tricky to source.

Now people living in 13 countries, including China, India, and Brazil, will be able to buy the Pi Zero and Zero W directly for the first time, after the Raspberry Pi Foundation added six new resellers for the Pi Zero.

These resellers will serve Hong Kong and ChinaBrazilIndiathe Czech Republic and SlovakiaSlovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-HerzegovinaRomania, Bulgaria and Hungary; and Mexico.

According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, online stores that display the Approved Reseller badge below are those that make buying a Pi easy and that “represent Raspberry Pi products well”.
