Kogan, cheap online tech retailer, launches in NZ

Last week Kogan.com, Australia’s largest online retailer, announced it is launching in New Zealand.

Kogan.com sells mostly tech products at prices that are often lower than Farmers, Ballantynes, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Dick Smith, and even TradeMe.

As well as selling well-known brands like Apple, ASUS, and HP, Kogan has its own line of devices going under the name Agora.

Here is a list of some of the price comparisons provided to us by Kogan’s PR team, showing that prices on the site can be up to 75% cheaper than retail stores.

According to the PR team, Kogan’s Private Label products have near identical or better features to other third-party products and offer customers an alternative solution for purchasing the latest technology with considerable savings.

Ruslan Kogan, Founder and CEO, said he was excited to bring the Kogan experience to New Zealand.

“For years we’ve been receiving requests from Kiwis who are sick of missing out on the latest technology because they’re getting overcharged by local retailers. They want to be able to shop at Kogan, and have us deliver right to their door.

“We’ve already become synonymous with great value TVs, gadgets and electronics in Australia and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our deals to our friends across the Tasman.

“Our goal is to deliver the latest technology at market leading prices. Whether it is manufacturing our own Kogan Private Label products, or sourcing the world’s biggest brands, we can cut out all the middlemen to guarantee the best prices.

“We want to offer Kiwis the same value as we’ve been offering millions of Aussies for the past eight years.

“Throughout 2014 our local New Zealand website will begin to see a wider range of Kogan products on the site. We’re aiming to make Kogan a household name in New Zealand, as it is now in Australia,” Ruslan said.

To celebrate the launch, Kogan is holding a huge sale exclusively for New Zealand shoppers. On top of its everyday low prices, there are discounts up to 70% off items from home appliances and cameras to watches and kids toys for a limited time.
