Newegg launches Canadian sellers program

E-retailer Newegg announced the establishment of the Canada Global Seller Program, which gives vendors access to millions of Canadian consumers.

"Newegg's Canadian infrastructure provides access to a very affluent customer base," said Sophia Tsao, head of Newegg Marketplace. "Our global strategy is to help connect savvy sellers with eager consumers, and that's precisely what we've done with our new Canada Global Seller Program."

The Canadian e-commerce market is projected to reach $44 billion by 2018. An estimated 2.2 million customers in Canada shop online regularly, with 42 percent of shoppers looking for international sellers.

Newegg's Canadian market is showing strong growth, up 1,100 percent in the first half of 2015 versus the same period in 2014.

Through the Canada Global Seller Program, vendors receive immediate access to Newegg's more than 20 million annual, unique Canadian visitors. The Newegg team oversees sellers' businesses, offering tools for better merchandising and marketing. Newegg sellers also bypass credit card transaction fees, monthly dues and listing fees.

A few months ago Newegg unveiled its next generation gaming website, GameCrate, one year after the company first launched the editorial, content-driven site for game enthusiasts. Last fall, the online retailer launched a subscription service for frequently ordered products and supplies.
