Amazon.ae today announced the launch of the International Shopping experience, making it possible for customers in Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman to browse and shop thousands of eligible items that can be shipped to them from the UAE. Customers will be able to choose from products across 31 categories, including electronics, clothing, watches, and toys.
Available in Arabic and English, the International Shopping experience customizes each user's experience depending on their location. Customers can complete payments in a number of convenient ways, including both local and international debit and credit cards.
The International Shopping experience is designed to deliver a seamless and transparent experience to Amazon.ae customers, ensuring there are no surprises at the time of purchase or delivery. Customers shopping on Amazon.ae from Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman will see clear pricing, delivery times, and shipping costs fully inclusive of import fees. Delivery is completely worry-free, with all cross-border customs clearance managed by Amazon’s couriers on the customers behalf, while customer support will also be available in both Arabic and English. This new international shopping experience is accessible through the Amazon shopping app or by visiting www.amazon.ae.
“We are always innovating on behalf of our customers, and with the launch of the ‘International Shopping’ experience, we are making shopping on Amazon.ae accessible to even more of them across the region,” said Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice-President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa (MENA). “Customers have been asking us for a selection tailored to their location, and the International Shopping experience solves this customer need and makes it simple to browse, shop, and ship thousands of products across the Gulf region.”
To get started, customers in Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman can simply get on the Amazon app or visit Amazon.ae, sign in with their current account details - or set-up an account in just a few easy steps if they are new to Amazon. Customers using the App can go to settings, select ‘United Arab Emirates’ and customize their language preferences. The International Shopping experience will do the rest, automatically displaying the available products and clearly listing pricing and shipping information.
