The Internet has gone on to create a truly global retail marketplace. Just look at Amazon – the largest Internet retailer business in the world by revenue and market capitalization. It’s the go-to site for most online shoppers and merchants alike.
E-commerce in the UAE has been relatively small-scale until now, but options are expanding quickly. Now, however, Emirati are also able to get Amazon-branded products through Souq.com. As a result, one can expect online shopping to be more popular in the Emirates, due to the Souq integration with Amazon under way, says founder Ronaldo Mouchawar with the deal providing a critical step in growing its customer base.
The secret to Amazon’s massive success in e-commerce products and services is its dedicated employees that are keeping the consumers happy and more likely to shop on Amazon than anywhere else.
