US prices in the UAE? That’s the Souq promise!
December 11, 2017

Import fees taken care of

It’s that time of the year when you tend to get into impulse-buy mode. have announced the launch of the Amazon Global Store. The promise is fairly simple enough, you can shop for over one million products from Amazon in the United States. The dedicated Amazon Global storefront is available on both the Souq website and mobile app, and you can choose from categories such as apparel, handbags, shoes, watches, kitchen, home goods, and many more.

And the prices are rather amazing. Think an Orbotix BB-8 Sphero for AED 399, inclusive of charges.  That’s a saving of AED 500 right there.

Customers in the UAE can shop in Arabic or English and pay in AED using their local credit cards or COD. The pricing shown is inclusive of import fee deposits, without any unexpected fees added later on – a huge attraction. offers two convenient delivery options for purchases from the Amazon Global Store, from click to delivery: priority (2-5 business days) and expedited (6-10 business days). Plus, you can return products for a full refund within 30 days.

Let’s face it, this could rattle quite a few changes in these parts…
