Newegg one of the most popular e-commerce website is starting to ship to India. It is happy news for the Indian users.
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.” – Soren Mills, Chief Marketing Officer, Newegg
The customer support is having a translation system which allows users to chat in their local languages.
The main draw back of this with the other ecommerce sites like Amazon, eBay or Flipkart is that newegg do not have a local store in India and will have to ship it from the United States itself. The shipping charge will be really high compared to the other stores because of the customs duty and all.
Just added a Corsair RAM to the cart worth INR 6,068. The shipping charge to my area is INR 1,156.73 if I choose World EggSaver Standard (4-6 Business Days) as delivery method and INR 1,279.33 if I choose World EggSaver Express (2-4 Business Days).
