You Can Order IKEA on Amazon (But It’ll Cost You)
While IKEA isn’t officially selling on Amazon, it is still possible to Prime ship some of their products.
Earlier this month, IKEA announced that it’s going to start selling its products on websites other than its own beginning in 2018, with Amazon and Alibaba likely candidates. Shortly after, people started to notice a ton of IKEA items on Amazon, causing much of the internet to think that IKEA surprised us all and started early. Sorry, but that’s not the case.
An IKEA media rep told New York magazine this week: “Regarding how the products ended up on Amazon, we don’t really have any comment to that other than that it is possible to resell Ikea products as long as the trademark is not misused.”
Third party resellers have been listing IKEA on Amazon for years, though there is often a bit of a markup. But, if you can’t make it to a store and the product isn’t available online (or you don’t want to pay or wait for IKEA’s slower shipping), it might be worth it.
Here, we’ve rounded up a few IKEA staples you can snag on Amazon Prime and compare their prices to the original so you know what you’re getting.
