Why some iPhone offered by Fizz are priced higher than buying directly from Apple?

I've noticed iPhone prices for new phones can be higher than what you can get them for directly from Apple. Example, today, the iPhone 11 is prices at $875 on Fizz, but this phone costs $850 from Apple.

    Hi Benoit,
    It's not just Fizz, this is the same situation with almost all carriers, Here you can finance with PayBright

    Have a nice day :)

    Yeah, I would like to know, too. The only "advantage" is that for each dollar spent you get 10 points (from what I read in the community), so, buying a phone would give you almost 9000 points, which would bring you to level 4.

    I would guess that Apple very recently have lowered their prices.

    During the beta testing period, I paid my brand new iPhone 11 for 640$ + taxes.

    Hard to say but i think appel can give a best price because their are no other compagnie between appel and the consummer. Buying directly from the manufacturer should always be cheaper to be logic. So i donc see a problem with that its only how buisness work (appel haas this price and fizz/paybright take an amount so more pricy)

    Hi Benoit,
    It is common for carriers to sell at higher price.
