Newegg Canada Launches Social Gifting Tool

Electronics E-Retailer Allows Facebook Users to Easily Organize and Collaborate on Gifts

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2013) - Newegg Canada Inc., a subsidiary of leading electronics-focused e-retailer Newegg Inc., today announced the launch of a new social gifting application for its Canadian customers. With this social gifting app, Newegg Canada ( is now making it easier than ever for Facebook users to organize and collaborate on gifts for their friends, family members or coworkers.

Social gifting has recently been growing in popularity as more and more consumers turn to this easy new way to organize group gifts. Gifts can get expensive -- particularly all of the latest gadgets and electronics that are often at the top of wish lists. By providing a platform for collaborating on gifts, social gifting makes it easier than ever to give great gifts to loved ones.

Using Newegg Canada's social gifting Facebook application, users can browse and choose from thousands of products on to give to any friend. After a gift is selected, users can then choose to share it with their network of Facebook friends and ask them to chip in for the gift. If enough money is collected, the gift is purchased for the friend. If not enough money is collected, the gift organizer has the option of paying the difference for the gift or getting a Newegg gift card for the amount collected.

"Social gifting is already taking place offline with people organizing gifts for birthdays, weddings and other special occasions," said Chris Parsons, country manager at Newegg Canada. "We know our customers are spending a lot of time online and engaging with their friends on social media, so we wanted to give them the ability to easily organize gift giving online as well. Our new social gifting Facebook app is the perfect way for users to collaborate on gifts in a fun and interactive way."
