If you’re like me, Amazon is the go-to site when it comes to shopping online. I use Amazon to get the latest music, books and movies; it’s also my favorite place to buy sports equipment and electronics. But did you know that there are many benefits of shopping on Amazon as an Arab? If you’re unfamiliar with the term Arab, it simply refers to Middle Eastern people who speak Arabic in their native language, such as Saudis and Egyptians.
Amazon Prime provides free delivery for orders above 100 AED or USD $27. You can also get free delivery with the purchase of a product from the Arabic shopping guide. Meanwhile, there is a flat fee for international shipping which will differ depending on your location, but most international deliveries will take 2-5 days to reach you. With the Arabic shopping guide, you will have access to over 50% off prices across various brands such as Zara and Adidas. Some other benefits include: Product returns are easy and hassle-free. Offers flexible payment options including cash on delivery, direct debit and credit card payments in local currencies in some countries including Saudi Arabia and UAE
You can find almost anything you are looking for on this platform!
Easy returns policy
Amazon provides a 30-day return policy for most items, which is more than enough time to really try out the product you’re considering. And if you do need to make a return, it’s easy! Just request a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) and they’ll come pick up your item from your house or office. You’ll be issued a refund within two days of the item being picked up. Plus, if you purchase a Prime membership, returns are even easier since there’s free same day pickup available in select cities. If returning something isn’t your thing, just send it back with free shipping by mail within 30 days of purchase – at no cost to you.
Same day delivery in major cities
Amazon offers a one-day delivery service in major cities, which is not available in many other places. If you are an Arabic speaker, there is also a free Arabic shopping guide to help you navigate the site and make the most of your experience. Plus, if you sign up for Prime, Amazon offers free access to their streaming service.
Having it shipped to your hotel or home abroad
Amazon offers Arabic shopping guides in their customer service help section, which can be accessed by clicking the Arabic flag next to the search bar. The Arabic customer service team is available 24/7, and can help with everything from placing orders to answering questions about delivery dates. If you are planning to ship your items back home, you will also need a customs declaration form (which can be downloaded online) so that your packages do not get confiscated during customs inspection when they enter your country.
Cash Back Programs
Amazon offers a Cash Back Program where you can earn points when shopping through the site. When you buy a qualifying product, you’ll earn one point per dollar spent. The points can be redeemed for rewards such as cash, credit, or gift cards.
