Company Continues Expansion in Key Global Markets
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Newegg,
the top tech-focused e-retailer in North America with an expanding
global footprint, today announced local shipping to customers in
Australia. The move is the latest in a series of strategic investments
made by Newegg to address key international growth markets.
“We began selling to customers in Australia last year and were impressed
by the steady growth as Australian customers became more familiar with
Newegg,” said James Wu, COO of Newegg. “We are confident the Australian
market presents a great opportunity for Newegg, and we’re enthusiastic
about forging a lasting relationship with this new customer base.”
In April of 2014, Newegg announced it would begin shipping to customers
in Australia. At first, only a subset of Newegg’s products could be
purchased and, despite higher shipping costs, Australian customers were
quick to take advantage of the product diversity offered by Newegg.
Scaling an e-commerce business to new international markets poses
significant logistical challenges in the areas of order fulfillment,
customer support, returns, regional product compatibility and
country-specific regulations. The expansion announced today is an
important step forward to make sure Australian customers have a great
shopping experience with Newegg.
To celebrate this announcement, Newegg is offering a tremendous number
of great deals for Australian customers. Visit http://www.newegg.com/AustraliaDeals
