Company Continues Growth in Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East

Los Angeles, CA, 2017-Nov-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg, the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America and a growing force in global e-commerce, today (November 2, 2017) unveiled key operational milestones in its expansion throughout parts of Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.

“Scaling our business internationally has been one of the most rewarding challenges in our company’s history,” said Danny Lee, Newegg’s CEO. “Extending the Newegg experience to customers in these countries brings us much closer to our goal of being the tech e-commerce destination preferred by customers across the globe.”

Newegg stated its intent to reach a total of 50 countries with a beta program that initiated its global expansion effort in June. Newegg ramped up its global infrastructure significantly since the beta launch, and today reports key growth metrics in nearly all of those 50 countries. In particular, Newegg now offers:

Growing Product Assortment: Newegg’s product count in each of the 50 countries it serves now averages hundreds of thousands of SKUs, with the goal of exceeding a one-million SKU count average in 2018.

Localized Payment: The majority of international customers can now pay in their local currency, using credit cards, e-Wallet payment options such as PayPal, as well as localized payment methods such as direct transfer and debit cards in select countries. Newegg continues to invest in optimizing the site to offer a truly localized shopping experience for its international customers. To that end, Newegg is proud to announce that paysafecard will soon be available as a payment method on Newegg.com in select countries.

PayPal: Now customers in 48 of the 50 countries Newegg currently serves can purchase with PayPal, one of the best-known payment-solution providers in e-commerce. Furthermore, customers in select countries in Asia Pacific and Latin America will be eligible for a 10% discount on purchases made via PayPal (offer valid Nov. 6 – Dec. 31 in select Asia Pacific and Latin American countries, $10 maximum discount).

Customer Service: Newegg is expanding customer service support internationally, with local support now available in a total of 11 languages.

Simplified Pricing: Streamlined pricing now includes duties and other fees up-front at checkout as part of the initial purchase price – no need to worry about figuring out duties after the order has been shipped.

Despite Newegg’s rapid global growth, the company still delivers a consistent, reliable shopping experience to its vast network of customers. The company hand-selects its marketplace sellers, ensuring all sellers on the Newegg platform reflect the company’s commitment to quality, value and customer service.

Newegg launches new portfolio of PC Build Kits

Newegg Takes the Guesswork Out of PC Builds

Los Angeles, CA, 2017-Oct-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg, the top tech-focused e-retailer in North America, today (October 10, 2017) took the wraps off its new portfolio of PC Build Kits. Newegg has long been the preferred destination for DIY PC builders, many of whom are exceptionally tech savvy. Newegg’s new PC Build Kits are ideal for people with the itch to build their own PCs, but who need some additional guidance when planning their builds.

Building a PC from scratch can be a very rewarding project, yet a number of variables can complicate the process and hinder performance. For example, compatibility of various components can mean the difference between a fine-tuned machine and one that may underperform. Newegg’s PC Build Kits ensure compatibility, and offer a range of configurations to suit any need and budget.

“Many people toy with the idea of building their own PC, but don’t know where to start or worry it won’t work,” said Merle McIntosh, Newegg SVP of Sales & Marketing. “This is why we came up with PC Build Kits. They’re a great way to elimitate common missteps among novice PC builders and guarantee a frustration-free experience.”

Customers will be presented with a series of questions that will ultimately point them to the PC Build Kit that matches their requirements. First, they choose one of six cases. Once a case is selected, the customer indicates if they want to build an AMD- or Intel-based machine. From there, they simply choose whether they want a good/better/best configuration, taking into consideration their performance requirements and budget range. Once these questions are answered, they are presented with the build kit that most closely matches their needs.

All PC Build Kit customers receive a bonus Swag Box, which includes a variety of items from participating manufacturers. Also included are items from Newegg including a promo gift card, keyboard, mouse and tool kit – everything a customer needs to build and enjoy a new rig.

Newegg’s contribution to No Kid Hungry helps to support these efforts.

“Newegg is proud to support No Kid Hungry and help feed those in need, especially in light of recent events,” said Danny Lee, CEO at Newegg. “We are pleased that our contribution – along with individual contributions from our customers – will be put to good use.”

Newegg joins forces with No Kid Hungry® to help communities feed children in need

Collaboration Supports Goal of Feeding Kids Where They Live, Learn, and Play

Los Angeles, CA, 2017-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg, the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America and a growing force in global e-commerce, today (July 26, 2017) announced it is joining forces with No Kid Hungry® to help combat childhood hunger.

No Kid Hungry works closely with organizations such as Newegg to help communities feed children in need every day of the year.

“Summer is a particularly challenging time for children who would otherwise receive meal assistance at their schools,” said Jill Davis, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at No Kid Hungry. “Newegg will help us bridge this critical time of year by providing meals to those in need.”

Newegg will build awareness within its base of 32 million customers, encouraging them to donate in increments of $1, $5 or $10. The company will then match all customer donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $75,000. Even the smallest donations go a long way with No Kid Hungry. For example:

  • $50 can help a free summer meals site serve 500 summer meals to hungry kids.
  • $100 can help summer meals sites invest in vital operating equipment.

“The reality that one in six children will face hunger this year is unacceptable, so we’re doing our part to bring positive change to this dire situation,” said Danny Lee, CEO at Newegg. “By encouraging our customers to donate and by dedicating corporate funds to match those donations, Newegg hopes to ease the burden hunger places on young people and their families.”

In addition to the donation-match announced today, Newegg also plans to reach out to its extensive network of suppliers to seek support from other tech companies that wish to fight childhood hunger.

Newegg announces its most successful Black November to date

Strong Sales of VR and Gaming Notebooks Fuel the Most Successful Black November in Company History

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Dec-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg, the holiday shopping destination of choice for tech enthusiasts, recently closed the books on its most successful Black November to date, driven in large part by strong sales from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday. In aggregate, during this five-day period Newegg sales increased 19.1% year-over-year. In contrast, online shopping as a whole increased 15.2% over that same period (Adobe Digital Insights, November 29, 2016). Newegg outpaced e-commerce industry trends with strong sales of virtual reality (VR) equipment, gaming notebooks and video game consoles. Popular PC upgrade components and accessories such as graphics cards, SSDs and monitors were also popular.

With less than three weeks until Christmas, Newegg offers some helpful tips for holiday shoppers in search of the perfect gift:

Ship to FedEx Locations
With so many people shopping online this time of year, it’s no surprise thieves are out in force. Customers can follow these recommendations to keep “porch pirates” at bay:

  • Take advantage of Newegg’s new “Hold for Pick-up at FedEx Location” option for secure storage and convenient pick up
  • When shipping to residential addresses, customers can track their order status to know when their packages will arrive and limit how long they sit unattended at their homes
  • And for added peace of mind, customers can install an IP/Network camera to deter thieves, and capture valuable visual evidence if a package is taken

Get to Know Shipping Deadlines
When shopping online in December, it’s valuable to understand various shipping deadlines. This will save customers money and help them avoid the frustration of gifts that arrive after Christmas.

Make Well-informed Purchasing Decisions
Finding the perfect gift – especially tech products – can be a daunting task. Before making a purchase, make sure to browse some of the millions of customer reviews on Newegg.com. And Newegg’s customer service team is always on hand to offer expert advice and support before and after purchase.

Understand the Ins and Outs of VR
Some of the hottest sellers this holiday are products that bring VR into the home. VR requires powerful computers; it’s possible a component or two may need to be upgraded to ensure a flawless VR experience. Visit Newegg’s VR portal to learn what you need and how to check to ensure your machine is VR-ready.

Whether shopping from home or on the go, Newegg’s desktop, mobile and app-based shopping experience is second to none. For more information and to stay up-to-date on the latest holiday deals from Newegg, visit http://www.newegg.com/HolidayDeals.

Newegg announces order-delivery option with FedEx

New Shopping Cart Integration Brings Greater Convenience, Security to the e-Commerce Shopping Experience

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Nov-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg – the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America – today (November 10, 2016) announced a new shopping cart integration with FedEx that will allow customers to order and hold packages for pickup at more than 2,500 FedEx locations throughout the United States, including 1,800 FedEx Office retail stores. Newegg customers shipping to U.S. addresses will have the option of Hold at FedEx Location, which allows packages to be stored securely and free of charge for up to five business days. This new order-delivery option gives customers peace-of-mind about shipping to secure locations, with the flexibility to pick up their orders when and where it’s most convenient.

“As e-commerce continues to grow, Hold at FedEx Location is an added benefit that gives customers more flexibility to receive their shipment to better fit their schedules,” said David Payton, Vice President of Marketing at FedEx. “It’s our physical network, built over 40 years, that’s powered FedEx to provide new solutions and serve as an engine of e-commerce.”

“FedEx has always been an integral part of our order-delivery infrastructure, with reliable, timely delivery of customers’ orders to their doorsteps,” said Danny Lee, Newegg CEO. “Today, we expand our collaboration by giving customers the option of delivery-for-pickup at FedEx locations near their home or office.”

While most online shoppers ship items to their homes, a growing number of people prefer the security and convenience of retrieving their packages at a store or retail location. Some customers simply prefer the convenience of shipping to a location where they can pick up their packages when they want.

Newegg’s new shipping option with FedEx is an important part of the company’s effort to provide extensive order-delivery options to its customers. Newegg currently offers will-call order fulfillment at some of its distribution facilities in North America, free shipping for Newegg Premier Members and a variety of delivery options to customers.

Newegg marks second anniversary of its Australian operations with Newegg Premier discount and new eBay.com.au store

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.

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
  • 20% off select promotional items

Newegg 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.
