New Egg might only be a new player in the Australian market, but they have already discovered the advantages of being here and this week, they also opened up their dedicated eBay store, give people even more buying options.
“The strategy to expand Newegg’s international presence hinges on successfully reaching customers in key markets such as Australia,” said Danny Lee, Newegg CEO. “In two short years our Australian operation has grown significantly, and we are committed to continuing growth in the months and years ahead.”
While Australian customers have been able to shop Newegg since April 2014, product availability was limited, and international shipping increased the overall cost of delivering products to customers.
Product availability has steadily increased since then, and in November 2015 Newegg began local order fulfillment from within Australia. Newegg now ships approximately 7,000 product SKUs from within Australia, with an additional 41,000 products available to Australian customers via Newegg’s North American channel. All told, Newegg more than tripled its Australian revenue in just the past seven months.
For those that like to shop on Ebay, be sure to stop by the New Egg store, you never know what deals you might discover.
