Newegg is a huge force in the e-tailer market across the world, but down in Australia the company has announced that it's celebrating its second anniversary Down Under with a discounted Newegg Premier, with a new eBay.com.au store that will "fuel growth in the country".
Newegg started selling to Australian consumers in Q2 2014, and has continued towards dominance in the country with a 300% growth in Australian revenue since November 2015. Danny Lee, Newegg CEO said: "The strategy to expand Newegg's international presence hinges on successfully reaching customers in key markets such as Australia. In two short years our Australian operation has grown significantly, and we are committed to continuing growth in the months and years ahead".
Even though the company opened up operations in Australia two years ago, product availability was limited, and international shipping costs made products more expensive to deliver to consumers. Newegg has improved the product availability, and in November 2015 the company began local order fulfillment from within Australia. Now, over 7000 product SKUs are sold within Australia, while another 41,000 products are available to Australian consumers through Newegg's North American channel.
In order to mark the two-year anniversary in Australia, Newegg is offering a discounted price on its Newegg Premier customer benefit program - dropping the price from $79 AUD to $59 AUD, with Newegg Premier membership including the following benefits:
- Free domestic shipping from Australia to Australia (excludes cross-border orders, some regional postal code restrictions apply)
- No re-stocking fees
- 20% off select promotional items
