The world's largest computer etailer poises itself as an alternative to the world's largest etailer

Newegg, often heralded for its fast shipping times and high-tech shipping facilities, isn't happy with being the largest computer e-tailer anymore. 

The company today announced NeweggMall.com, a spinoff of the Newegg.com website and business model.  Like Amazon, NeweggMall gives smaller retailers an outlet to showcase their wares but uses Newegg's logistics tracking and content management system. 

The end result is, well, Amazon.  Consumers can buy from the NeweggMall site, and products are drop-shipped from the reseller.  Newegg takes a portion of the revenue from the sale, which it justifies by handling the portal and logistics.  Depending on category, that portion can range from 6 to 15 percent, nearly identical to the revenue share structure at Amazon.com.

Newegg Mall is also the same division that manages the EggXpert.com forum, a community of blogs and forums created to provide product feedback on products featured at Newegg.com.  Certainly this forum will also be used for the new categories featured at Newegg Mall as well.

Newegg representatives tell DailyTech the new marketplace will officially launch on May 27, 2008, though the site appears to be taking orders already.   More information is available from the Newegg Mall About Page

International credit cards

We do not currently accept international credit cards at this time.


More than three years and still they're don't accept International Credit Cards even if the shipping address are located in the United States, this is by far the only thing that I hate (really hate) about Newegg policy.

For a man who leave outside united states and know that even with the shipping and handling and taxes the products are always cheaper and plus you get the things that you will never get at your own country is a non-brainier situation.

I don't know why Newegg don't accept Internationals Credit Cards as Amazon does, sadly that Amazon don't sell more computer stuff.

If they are "taking on Amazon" it wouldn't surprise me if they went more global, or at least add Canada.

No because they only ship to verified addresses and paypal only verifies your credit card's billing address, so if your CC is issued outside the USA you won't be able to verify an address on the USA...

I can barely understand what I wrote up there so in two words:

No Paypal...

I tried... A lot...
