Amazon Officially Launched in UAE: Souq.com is now Amazon.ae
Souq.com has become the new shopping experience Amazon in the UAE
If you’re heading to Souq.com to do your daily bargain shopping, you’ll now be directed to a brand-new shopping site, Amazon.ae. After years of speculation, at last, Amazon has been officially launched in UAE.
Today, the online retail giant announced the launch of Amazon.ae featuring millions of local and international products at great prices. In 2017, it had acquired Souq, Dubai’s home grown online store and the largest e-commerce platform in the Arab world for a whooping $580 million. With the launch, Souq.com is rebranded to Amazon.ae.
Shopping at Amazon.ae
The new Middle East marketplace is a blend of Souq’s local know-how and Amazon’s global expertise. It features over 30 million products including those available on Souq and 5 million products from Amazon US. And if you’re into bargaining, you have ample bargain deals on a host of items. Also, you can do shopping in Arabic; that will be of significant benefit to UAE customers.
You can check out all the products and deals by visiting the site right here or via the Amazon App. Both the app and the website offer faster and rich browsing experience, accurate search results, trusted product reviews, personalized recommendations and simple order management. Now you can search for your favorite products and pay in Dh using local and international credit cards or cash on delivery (COD).
How about free delivery? Not to worry. You can get free next day delivery on orders above AED100 as well as paid same day delivery to select areas in the UAE. What more could you ever ask for? Even better, regardless of your business know-how, businesses can sell their products on the site easily with access to easy listing tools, safe payment processing and promotional features.
