Souq launches Amazon Global Store in KSA

Souq, an online retail and marketplace website in the Arab region, has launched the “Amazon Global Store,” which offers customers in the Kingdom the ability to shop for over one million products from Amazon in the US. On Amazon Global Store, customers can enjoy a wide selection of products from categories such as apparel, handbags, shoes, watches, kitchen, home goods, and many more from popular brands. 

“We are excited about making over one million popular products from Amazon available on Souq.com to customers. This brings global selection closer to our customers in the region, and we will continue to grow this further,” said Saleem Hammad, general manager Saudi Arabia, Souq.com. 

“We share the same vision as Amazon and focus on providing our customers with best-in-class selection, great prices and a convenient shopping experience.” 

Customers can shop in Arabic or English and pay in Saudi riyals using their local credit cards or cash on delivery (COD). Customers will see prices in Saudi riyals inclusive of import fee deposits at checkout (where applicable) — without any unexpected fees added later. With Amazon Global Store’s hassle-free customs clearance, purchases are delivered right to customers’ door steps. a
