Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Aug-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg – the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America with a growing international presence – today commemorates its second anniversary of serving customers in Australia with a limited-time discount on its Newegg Premier customer benefit program, plus a new eBay.com.au store to fuel growth in the country. Newegg – which began selling to customers in Australia in Q2 2014 – has steadily increased its foothold in the country and most recently recorded 300% growth in Australian revenue since November 2015.
“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.
Newegg Premier for Australian Customers
To mark this anniversary, Newegg is discounting its Newegg Premier customer benefit program to $59 AUD (regularly $79 AUD – discount applied upon sign-up completion). Newegg Premier membership carries special benefits, including:
- Free domestic shipping from Australia to Australia (excludes cross-border orders, some regional postal code restrictions apply)
- No re-stocking fees

Newegg Store on eBay Australia
To further expand its reach in Australia, Newegg is opening a store on eBay Australia. Newegg – which also maintains eBay stores in the United States and the United Kingdom – has a longstanding relationship with eBay to reach customers who are accustomed to shopping on eBay. The product assortment available on Newegg’s eBay store in Australia primarily features computer components, and all products ship from within Australia.
