This new store offers customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) the ability to shop for over one million products from Amazon in the United States.

On Amazon Global Store, customers can now enjoy a broad selection from categories such as apparel, handbags, shoes, watches, kitchen, home goods, and many more from popular loved brands.

The dedicated Amazon Global storefront is available on both SOUQ website and mobile app.

“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. 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.”

Saleem Hammad, General Manager KSA, SOUQ.com

Amazon Global Store on SOUQ offers a completely localized and effortless experience for customers in the KSA: Customers can shop in Arabic or English and pay in SAR using their local credit cards or cash on delivery (COD).

Customers will see prices in SAR 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’ doorsteps.

SOUQ offers two convenient delivery options for Amazon Global Store, from click to delivery: priority (2-5 business days) and standard (6-10 business days).

In addition, customers can speak directly with SOUQ’s customer service team in English or Arabic for any queries they might have related to the products. And they can generally return products for a full refund within 30 days, in most cases.

Expansion of Amazon Global Store

Amazon already uses the Global Store concept in Australia after the government down under enacted a stricter collection policy for GST taxes.

The company also operates a Global Store for UK and Indian customers. (product selections may vary.)

It appears the SOUQ.com Global Store will be similar to these versions and it represents another excellent opportunity for U.S.-based sellers to gain more sales globally.
