Apple set up a website
for merchants to order Apple Pay Decal promo kits.
It has a few cool images of the decals and their intended use.
It's amazing the money Apple must spend on creating these kits just to give them away. Not to mention the $2 in postage it costs. I guess it's good advertising; and probably costs a lot less than paying for a bunch of magazine spreads.
I wondered if Joe Blow could order a kit, or if there was something that would limit the accessibility of these kits to retailers. A tax ID number for example.
I jumped on the website and attempted to order a kit. My thinking was that it would be cool to get my hands on one of these. These are the types of things that might be worth a few bucks 20 years down the line. Just think how cool it would be to have an eWorld or an iTools sticker.
You can order up to 5 kits, but I just stuck with one. Knowing now that anyone can order these, I should have gone for broke.
After placing your order, you'll get an order confirmation email…
…followed by another one with a tracking number when they ship.
Five days later, I received a white envelope in the mail.
Inside was an Apple-branded card.
The envelope includes some instructions and two sheets of decals.
These are the instructions. You know, for those that don't know how stickers work.
The kit comes with four decals. Two for the window, and two for the register.
It also comes with this handy little tool for getting the bubbles out.
See what I mean? It must cost Apple a few bucks to have these kits assembled, just to give them away.
Only time will tell if they turn out to be something of value. Maybe if Apple Pay goes the way of the Dodo, like so many other Apple services before it, it might be worth a buck tor two. If anything, an interesting post on a Blog.
