The Raspberry Pi single-board computer is set to get an online store for customers to order the device and accessories, according to details released by the Raspberry Pi foundation.
In a bid to simplify the ordering process for the Raspberry Pi, which has seen incredible demand since going on sale, distributor RS Components will be opening up a bespoke store for sales of the Raspberry Pi Model B boards and associated products.
No date has been specified for when this will be up and running.
The store will be opened up to customers who have already registered their interest with RS, in the order which they registered, according to a statement from the company.
RS also said that its Raspberry Pi Store will accept orders via PayPal as well as Visa and Mastercard, while the firm's main site only accepts credit cards.
Customers will also be able to choose between euros, US dollars or UK pounds when paying for purchases.
An update is also expected on the compliance testing issue that could potentially cause further delays to availability of the much anticipated low-cost device, which is based on an ARM system-on-a-chip and runs a version of Linux.
The Raspberry Pi initially went on sale on 29 Febrary, sparking a huge rush from enthusiasts looking to get their hands on the £22 computer.
