We have our fingers on the pulse of global retail


1 November 2016

As part of our marketplace focus series, we are taking a look at Newegg, the ecommerce store built specifically for tech-enthusiasts that boasts more than 10.5 million product listings and 70% customer retention.

How does Newegg differ to other US ecommerce stores?

Founded in 2001, Newegg positions itself as a specialist online marketplace that is focused on providing tech-enthusiasts and mainstream shoppers alike with the most up-to-date technology, consumer electronics and automotive parts, to indulge their passion for cutting edge products at competitive prices. Newegg takes the time to understand their customers’ requirements and responds by seeking out the best deals from a wide range of specialist brands to maintain its position as a premier online shopping destination.

Customer service is hugely important to Newegg, with the marketplace equipping their customers with state-of-the-art decision making resources, such as detailed product information, ‘how-to’s’, over 3 million customer reviews and high-resolution photo galleries. Newegg also prides itself on ‘lightning-fast delivery and cutting-edge logistics’ which provides customers with peace of mind, from the first click to final delivery.

Newegg is more than a shopping destination to its customers; it is a community of like-minded individuals who can share their passion with over 25 million other registered users.

Shipping by Newegg

Similar to Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA), Newegg offer their own fast, reliable and cost effective logistics solution, ‘Shipped by Newegg’ (SBN). Here are just a few of the many perks of using SBN:

  • Save Money: Using Newegg’s vast logistical resources you don’t have to worry about the costs involved with warehousing, shipping, packing and insurance
  • Save Time: 99.6% of SBN orders are shipped within 24 hours, giving you more time to focus on growing your business
  • Grow Sales: As an SBN partner you are invited to participate in special priority merchandising campaigns on the Newegg platform

The US Ecommerce Landscape AT a glance

The United States is the second largest ecommerce market globally, only missing out on the top spot to ecommerce giant, China. The market is currently estimated at US$396bn, and is expect to grow by a whopping 73% by 2020, reaching as much as US$684bn.

Not only is the US one of the most established ecommerce markets, but it is also one of the most innovative. American retailers have been quick to adopt mobile apps and responsive online store designs to provide their 190 million digital customers with a smooth shopping experience, as well offering new, fun ways to purchase goods, such as ‘selfie pay’.

Together with a seamless omni-channel presence (over 43% of major retailers in the US offering some form of in-store pickup for online orders), the US benefits from a fantastic logistics infrastructure, a common language and high consumer engagement, making it the perfect springboard for UK retailers looking to increase international sales.
