Newegg, the popular e-commerce site from the US, has just announced that it is expanding is global footprint into India, as well. Newegg now welcomes online shoppers from India and also launches online stores in Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland and Singapore. With this move, Newegg’s availability extends beyond the U.S., Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. Soren Mills, Chief Marketing Officer of Newegg North America, said the following:
“We’re excited to continue bringing the Newegg service, products and deals to a wider, more global audience. We’re committed to growing Newegg’s international presence so people from all around the world can experience the stellar shopping experience our North American customers currently enjoy.”
Customers in India can visit Newegg.com and purchase a wide selection of products. Initially, this new international store will have a limited selection of products to start, but this will grow and improve in the coming months. Newegg is also adding multilingual customer service in order to reduce any language barriers.
Customer can chat in their native language, which is translated instantly for Newegg’s customer service representatives. At the moment, the service offers Polish and Dutch language options only, but more languages will soon be added. As you can see in the above screenshot, when you visit the Newegg homepage, customers in India can select their country and currency from drop-down menus.
Also, international customers can select the ‘Newegg Global Eligible’ filter in order to view only those products that ship internationally. When added to the Shopping Cart, these will show estimated tax, duty and shipping charges before the order is completed.
The Indian e-commerce sector is getting more competitive, with big players like Amazon and Flipkart as the big rivals. Newegg.com now joins the race and aims to attract users interested in DIY electronics and computer components. What do you think of this? Let us know by leaving your comment below.
