Great news, international readers! Starting today, we’re expanding Newegg to include shoppers in the United Kingdom and Australia. Customers from these countries will now be able to shop on Newegg.com and enjoy the same low prices as our American clientele.

We’re not quite ready to unleash our entire catalog, which includes millions of products. Instead, we’re starting out by offering thousands of items as we begin our international expansion. Don’t worry though; we’ll be adding new items frequently as we widen our overseas reach.

    been waiting for this … they ship to aussie now yay

    Just hope they have competitive shipping rates like amazon

    I guess their trying to compete with Amazon on a global scale .. I hope this means Amazon will finally introduce free shipping to Australia soon.

    • +2 votes

      Just so people know, Amazon charges $3 US per pound to ship to AU. There is also a single per order charge, and it depends on what the highest per shipment category charge is. For electronics it is $7, for home, toys, games & clothing is $8 (though the latter categories are charged at $4 per pound).

      Until recently Amazon shipping charges to Austrlia were ridiculous cheap (cheaper than shipping from Brisbane to Melbourne), only $2.50 per pound. Having things send by USPS to Australia costs perhaps $10/pound for lighter items and $6 per pound for heavy packages (it is quite complex, the way shipping charges are calculated).

      I too hope Newegg shipping is no dearer than Amazon's.

        It isnt ridiculously cheap, its just domestic shipping in australia is exorbitantly expensive.
        I bought 100 kg of books from canada, and it was cheaper than 90kg of books from brisbane to sydney.

        •  

          Can I just ask, who you shipped with? We've been looking to ship things from canada to aus for a while but cant seem to find any good prices (or even get quotes returned)

      •  

        So about $10 for less than 500gr package? Imagine, that's like shipping from melb city to nunawading!

    This is going to hit Australian retailers like Harvey Norman hard. I wonder to what extent they can compete with Fortune 500 companies.

    NewEgg, Amazon and TigerDirect are continuously competing and price matching against each other.

    • +7 votes

      The likes of Harvey Norman deals with a very different market. Most of their sales are on "no payment till 2025" that's not the kind of people who would buy from NewEgg or Tiger. They simply do not have cash up front. And the likes of Harvey Norman capitalize on that offering them GE capital finance 29% interest to buy now never pay off deals.

      I tried adding a Flat screen mount to my basket which cost $68.. System calculated $80 for delivery….

      Based on this I think newegg will be good for buying things that we cannot source locally..

      Maybe that is a blessing as it will not discourage buying locally and supporting Australian workers and employers, keeps jobs in Australia etc (patriotic music plays in background).

      • +9 votes

        So, PCCG shipping rates then? :P

      • +1 vote

        I never really understood this buy locally mentality. If US businesses do well, we do well too. That's how markets work. I just can't see it as 'them and us'. Sales to them is good for us too. The only difference is that a large part of the produces from producers in the US will be stolen and used to bomb countries in the middle east even if the producers don't want their stuff to be spent that way. But otherwise it's the same.

    $1,066.29 + $52.40
    Staticice: $1449.00

    remember to add GST for items over $1000 and Currency conversion rates

    •  

      Yeh remember currency + GST, which is unavoidable. Also this is the 765m if I were looking at higher performance gaming laptops you'd want a 850m at least if not a 860m.

      •  

        765M is pretty good for a $1K laptop.

        I got the MSi GE60 with GTX660M and it run most games on Med pretty decent.

      Plus this is a lower spec model that was costed on Statice, if you bring up the specs that the Australian model has. 1tb hdd, gtx 860m gpu, plus Australian model has blu ray player and not dvd burner.The price quoted on Newegg is $1522.27

    shipping cost is not too bad. for an ssd its about $16 which seems to be the minimum shipping cost. so for a $200 ssd we actually get it cheaper than someone in California (as sales tax there is about 10%)

    shipping costs $104.01 for a 23" monitor :(

      Nearly double the cost of a rack mount server chassis I'm after to ship. $95 + $161 shipping.

      Hopefully they'll become more affordable once they become more prominent.

    Awesome!!! Thanks OP for letting us know =)

    Will be even better if the $AU ever goes back up

    Awesome timing.

    Too much of a PITA to go Linux and not worth the license fee for W7.

    •  

      Don't get too excited, I went there last night and everything I tried to look at had shipping restrictions, laptops were on their list of no no's.

      Same as Windows discs, the site is useless if you are Australian.

        The Australian Consumer Law still applies, however it's difficult to enforce. You can claim the cost of return postage irrespective of their policy.

          They are selling to Australia, so our laws apply.

          The Checkout (ABC show) also covered this with OzGameShop, which is a UK company.

        • +5 votes

          How will any sort of penalty be enforced?
          Just saying it applies doesn't mean anything unless there's some agreement between countries and the laws are actually enforced.

          If the police can't do anything about Nigerian scammers who fleece hundreds of thousands of dollars off Australians every year, I wouldn't be too confident that the government will care about a faulty product I purchased from an overseas store because I wanted a cheaper deal.

          I'm quite sure OzGameShop did it out of goodwill, rather than any legal obligation. They got some free advertising out of it too!

        • +1 vote

          Bit of a difference between Nigerian scammers and a legitimate US business.

          Penalties can be enforced I would believe, just as court imposed fines can be. We have legal agreements between the two countries.

        • +3 votes

          So in theory, we have some protection. But in reality it's no protection at all? It's more the seller's goodwill rather than any fear of legal action?

          http://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/Consumers/Ways_to_shop/Onl...

          If you buy online from an overseas trader, Australian Consumer Law may not apply and may only offer you limited protection. This could make it difficult for you to benefit from a warranty or to get a refund, replacement or repair if the goods you receive are defective.

          Before purchasing from overseas you should also satisfy yourself that repair facilities and spare parts are reasonably available in Australia.

        •  

          Not sure why you're downvoted, the ACL definitely applies and is definitely difficult to enforce.

          Just playing devil's advocate here… lets say Singapore bans chewing gum completely. You mail a pack to a friend there suffering from withdrawal symptoms. They find out and mail you a $1,000 fine.

          Will you gladly pay the Singaporean government the fine?

        •  

          If I want to keep my business with Singapore, I better pay that fine.

  •  

    I just looked for several items on the site. ALL said shipping restrictions (unavailable to Aust)

    •  

      The blog contains information how to display items that are available for overseas (AU/UK) shipping (Blog link is in deal description).

      In a nutshell : Select Shop all stores from top left hand side, and then select Newegg global.

      •  

        That didn't work for me. E.g. the PNY 780 Ti was in the list, added it to cart but got removed due to restrictions.

    Quite a number of restrictions (all cases? All pre-builts? corsair ram?)

    Nevertheless it's awesome!

  •  

    How do we SEARCH for global products?

    •  

      http://www.newegg.com/Newegg-Global/Store

      I added some items from there to the cart and it got removed as it said it wasn't available to ship to Australia. Since they just started international shipping, it's kinda expected that there are bugs in the system.

      •  

        That seems to do just a general site search for me. Ie: search for ram using that link then put in cart and it was auto removed as not shipping to Australia.

        Edit: select category first then "search within"
