Shopping Online in Saudi Arabia (Top 5 online stores)

Expat

online shopping saudi arabia

Once you arrive in Saudi Arabia and have your first experience with the postal service you will quickly understand why many choose to stay away from online shopping. I have been through my fair share of postal disputes, refunds, hassles etc. when it comes to online shopping.
So why even bother? Honestly, I love online shopping it is one of my favorite hobbies. Also, the deals you get online are unheard of here and so are many of the fashion options. I do tend to prefer to get most of my fashion and beauty buys online. After a few years of experience
I have tailored a short list of the best online shops delivering to Saudi Arabia. In terms of options, price and customer service all these places totally satisfied my shopping experience.
 
Keep in mind the best delivery option no matter where you choose to shop online is by courier shipping  (trackable), if it is not offered then I would think twice about taking the risk.
For all your fashion needs ASOS is the place to shop. With a massive selection of fashion buys for men and women this is a sure winner in my books. Carrying both their own brand and various designers you are bound to find what you’re looking for. They offer both standard and express shipping (courier) and are excellent when it comes to customer service. I absolutely love ASOS!
All things beauty can be found here and at reasonable rates. I mentioned in an earlier post about the ridiculous inflation of prices on cosmetics (here) in Saudi Arabia, so this is a budget friendly option. They carry thousands of cosmetic brands, body and hairlines and tools for all your beauty needs. The only limitation when shopping here is that some options are limited to Saudi Arabia shoppers because of border regulations (boo)! Anyhow if you’re a beauty junkie then this place is made of dreams…

Bookworms this one is for you. The more popular site Amazon is also an option but I found it full of hassles when I tried to get something shipped here. Even downloadable e-books were problematic and I the customer service did nothing for me. For hassle free e-books KOBO is the place to shop. Everything is done online, simple and stress free. Stocking the newest releases and their fair share of classics this is a place to visit. Also, it is compatible with most e-reader gadgets including the iPad so there is no need to buy the specific KOBO e-reader.
Electronic hotspot this online shop is the answer to your techie needs. They are a Middle Eastern company that sells everything from cameras to home appliances. Always carrying the latest models you are sure to find what you’re looking for. The added bonus shopping here is that they offer pay on delivery service that lets you pay for your purchase when the courier arrives with your delivery. This is great for those who don’t have credit cards or those that are weary about using their credit cards online. The only limit shopping here is that you need to frequently check the website because stock quickly sells out.
Not your typical online shop. This website is the place to go when you’re looking for a deal. The site offers coupons for several retailers, services, and vacation packages every day at shockingly low prices. You will come across beauty spa packages to car detailing specials, literally a coupon for everything. The site is city specific so just choose the city your currently residing in and shop away. The site is definitely time sensitive, as the specials are only open for a few days at a time and limited to a certain number. It is easy to use and is a great way to experience new restaurants, spas etc. without the hesitation of wasting any money.
