Apple to Drop Restocking Fees at Retail Stores and also Offer Personal Setup for Mac?

Written By Sam on 10 January 2011

It looks like Apple will be dropping the 10% restocking fees for merchandise returned to its retail stores starting on Tuesday. Usually when you return an opened product to an Apple Store you will be charged a 10% restocking fee. But from this Tuesday, Apple is cutting restocking fees from their retail chain. We’ll have to see how Apple deals with people trying to return their scratched up iPods and what the policy with iPhones will be.

In a related news, 9to5Mac says that some Apple stores will now offer Personal Setup for Mac. So when you purchase a Mac at an Apple Retail store an employee will help you setup your e-mail accounts, walk you through the Mac App Store, setup an iTunes account for you, and show you the basic pointers of owning a Mac. Some stores will even have dedicated Mac setup stations.
