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, a spinoff of the 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

Newegg Mall is also the same division that manages the forum, a community of blogs and forums created to provide product feedback on products featured at  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

Paying shipping on a cheap items sucks but it's reality. Obvsiously there is going to be a minimum shipping cost. So, don't buy that one cheap item alone - bundle it with other stuff you want, or go to a retailed and have them order it (so they pay the shipping).

There are tons of advantages to shopping online but obviously buying one cheap item at a time isn't the most effective way to shop online.
