As technology becomes increasingly integrated into our lives, the need to shop online increases. It can seem daunting to try shopping online if you’re not accustomed to it, which is why we have compiled this comprehensive guide on how to shop on Amazon as an Arab. We will guide you through the multitude of Amazon-specific services and solutions available in Arabic, including the Kindle, Amazon Prime Video, Alexa Skills and more!
The Basic Rules
Amazon’s Arabic shopping guide is essential for anyone living in the Middle East and North Africa. This guide will help you find what you’re looking for, use Arabic language, purchase items that are cheaper than in your country, and read reviews in Arabic.
The Search Function
One of the most important parts of shopping on a website is finding what you’re looking for. If you know the name, you’ll need to type it into the search bar at the top of any page. If not, scroll down and click browse all to find categories. From there, select your category, then use the tabs at the top to view different brands or types of products within that category. Many items are fulfilled by Amazon so if you see Fulfilled by Amazon in the listing details, expect this item to be delivered directly from them (usually in 2 days).
If an item does not say Fulfilled by امازون بالعربي, choose this one over one with Fulfilled by Merchant.
If you’re still unsure about anything, email customer service before buying!
Amazon accepts the following payment methods for your purchases: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Card. If you are not a resident of the United States, then you may also use PayPal to pay for your purchases. You can link your credit or debit card to your Amazon account so that it is automatically charged when you make a purchase.
Shipping can be a difficult process when you’re shopping internationally. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Keep in mind that while there are many shipping methods to choose from, they all have their own limitations and benefits so make sure to think about your priorities before deciding which one is right for you. The most common shipping options are:
- Standard Shipping- this option costs the least but it’s also the slowest of them all;
- Expedited Shipping – this option will cost more than standard shipping but the time varies depending on where you live;
- Express Mail International (EMS) – this method is the fastest with delivery times ranging between 5 to 10 days depending on where you live. However, keep in mind that this shipping method does not provide tracking info so if you need tracking info please opt for one of the other two options.
- Global Shop Guarantee – if you want to purchase items from a small business located outside of the United States then Global Shop Guarantee is what you need! With this service enabled you’ll be able to shop with peace of mind knowing that anything goes wrong with your order we’ll take care of it at no additional cost to you!
