ONLINE SHOPPING IN SAUDIA ARABIA

Expat
It seems like a decade ago I first mentioned online shopping in Saudi Arabia here on the blog. But being one of the most viewed posts of all-time it clearly speaks for itself. Many people including myself prefer online shopping, to the over crowded malls of Saudi. Not to mention the endless selection, better deals, and hard to find items all readily available at the click of a button.
As pleasant as online shopping is, the hardship falls on delivery options. With a practically non-existent postal service here in Saudi Arabia and no logical address system, delivery can become very chaotic. Let’s not forget online shopping is limited to courier service delivery that often adds a hefty surcharge to your order, sometimes making the
entire purchase impractical.
My review of the top places to shop online mentioned in my previous post still remain some of my favorites however with time comes new and better discoveries to I have listed my all-time 5 absolute favorite online shops.

ATTARAH: TRADITIONAL BEAUTY SHOP

Beauty
When you first take a glimpse into an ATTARAH you would easily mistaken it for a witchcraft shop. With products stacked floor to ceiling leaving little room to wander around you could only imagine what this place has in store. The questionable dried herbs, grounded powders and mixed oils could have you running for the door.  But trust me it is definitely worth the time and the browse. Spending almost an hour on my first visit; looking at all the products and asking questions I have to say this is definitely a must-see/do for any beauty addict.

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.
