Where to purchase your very own Raspberry Pi computer

This article will list retailers selling Raspi computers. The list of retailers in this article are all Raspberry Pi Approved Resellers. I have not personally made any orders from these companies but they are listed at https://www.raspberrypi.org .

Retailers in US.

The resellers in the US/Canada selling Raspberry Pi are:

CanaKit located at https://www.canakit.com/. The web site for this company has a number of starter kits, which I recommend as you will get all necessary options available in one package. The also have all 3 of the memory models. One of their basic starter kits include a cooling fan, keyboard and mouse. Other kits contain other items to get you started. They also have kits for the Raspberry Pi 3, 3A+ and 3B+ systems as well as the Raspberry Pi Zero.

Their address is: Cana Kit Corp, 2455 Dollarton Highway, Unit 118, North Vancouver, BC V7H 0A2, Canada. (There are NO pickups available at the above address. Their phone is Toll-Free in North America is 1-888-540-KITS.


Chicago Electronics Distributors located at https://chicagodist.com. Their phone number is 312-985-6175. They have educational discounts for students, teachers or professors. They have bare boards and kits at competitive prices.


PiShop.us located at pishop.us does NOT show an address or phone number unless you create an account with them. They do scroll their products so if you see what you like then you could create an account. What they show their prices are comparable to other sites.

Newark Element 14 web site at https://www.newark.com/search?ost=Raspberry&searchref=searchlookahead&product-range=raspberry-pi-4-model-b has a number of kits and single boards available in the US and a number of other countries around the world. Just click on the US flag in the top right of the screen and it will show you a list of countries where their products are available.


Adafruit at https://www.adafruit.com/product/4295?src=raspberrypi has all of the Raspberry Pi 4 in stock. They also have the Raspberry Pi 3 B and 3 B+ models available if you are looking for that model or the Raspberry Pi Zero model if that is your preference. When you click on a model it will show you a description of each model along with a “Add to cart” button to place your order.


OKDO at https://www.okdo.com/us/p/raspberry-pi-4-model-b-1g/ is another retailer that has the Raspberry Pi 4, 3 B, 3 B+ and Zero available. They also show me a message “Unfortunately we are unable to ship to your location.” because I am in the Philippines. They did not show what countries they did ship to.


VILROS at https://vilros.com/products/raspberry-pi-4-model-b?src=raspberrypi is another retailer with Raspberry Pi computers available. They announce that they limit all orders to “1 per household”


Micro Center Computers & Electronics at https://www.microcenter.com/product/608166/4-model-b---1gb-ddr4?src=raspberrypi is the last retailer listed on the raspberrypi.org site. They are unique in that they have in store pick up available in a select list of cities. They also have a unique pricing schedule that is: 1 @ $29.99 each, 2-5 @ $45.00 each and 6+ @ $55.00 each. This looks like they want to sell only one at a time and these prices are listed for the 1 GB model.

This completes the list of retailers in the USA that are approved by Raspberry Pi. Except for the last one all of the above retailers have the same price, which I think is fixed by Raspberry Pi.

If you visit any of the above retailers you might find that they will have other options that might be better than others, such as free shipping.
