7 Best Online Shopping Websites in Saudi Arabia

Who doesn’t love online shopping? Getting your favorite brands, at special online discounted prices, that too without moving from the comfort of your own bed. The first time I heard of this, I was sold. Every person living in Saudi Arabia, who has at least had one encounter with the great postal service, knows that it is a process engulfed with hassles, refunds and disputes, especially when it comes to online shopping.After spending some time in the Kingdom I have shortlisted the best online shops that deliver to Saudi Arabia. These online stores have been judged according to their prices, customer service and the variety or options that they offer. It is important to remember that the most reliable way of shipping anywhere is courier shipping which is traceable, and if it is not offered one should not take the risk through regular post.

  1. Souq – : This is the place for all electronic tech junkies. This is a Middle Eastern company that will sell you anything ranging from home appliances to cameras. They also have the newest models in stock, and the best part is, they offer payment on delivery, which is pretty neat. Basically a techie’s heaven.
  2. Cobone – This is not your typical online shop. If you are looking for deals and coupons that visit this online store now! The site features offers coupons for various retailers which can range from spa packages to car washes etc. they also offer vacation packages at extremely low prices. It is simple and easy and is a good way to try new restaurants or spas without hesitating to waste money.                 

  3. ASOS – ASOS is your one stop shop for most of your fashion needs. It boasts a huge selection for both men and women. The online store carries many brands including their own flagship brand by their own name. They offer great customer service and are definitely a winner in my books.
  4. FeelUnique – This store offers female cosmetics at extremely reasonable prices. This store had been recommended to be put on this list by several of my friends’ wives, as I do not use women’s cosmetics (LOL). They carry thousands of cosmetic brands, and any tools you might need for your beauty. However some products are restricted in Saudi Arabia due to border regulations. It is recommended by fellow beauty junkies to all beauty junkies out there, as a place of dreams.
  5. Kobo – is for every bookworm out there. Who doesn’t like to unwind after a long day by reading a good book? Although Amazon delivers too, but I found it difficult and not a user friendly site. Some users have reported issues even with the downloadable books from Amazon, and the customer service offered no help in this case. If you want hassle free eBooks, Kobo is it. They stock the latest releases as well as classics and also sell e-reader gadgets such as the iPad.
  6. Extra Stores is another good option for online shopping in Saudi Arabia.
  7. is another good option.
