E-Commerce is booming in the Middle East, and Amazon is one of the top choices for online shoppers in the region. Since 2019, Amazon has opened operations in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt. At this rate, we can safely expect the country list to keep growing as more and more Arabs in the Middle East turn to the Internet for their shopping. Given this trend, now is a great time for US and European-based brands to dive into this market and reach new clients with culturally informed and targeted advertisement strategies.

We are well acquainted with the unique challenges involved with PPC marketing in the Middle East: internet usage often occurs at different times of the day than in Western countries, keywords will vary by country, and many Arab users that are new to Amazon tend to interact with ads without the intention of purchasing products. Instead of getting bogged down by the challenges, we will help your brand make the most of the opportunities in this new market.

Benefits of the Arabic-Language Amazon Market


Fewer Rules

At this stage, there is currently less review and oversight of Arabic ads on Amazon as opposed to English-language ads, given that Amazon has only launched in Arabic-speaking countries in the past couple of years. Marketers should use this to their advantage, as oftentimes ads in Arabic on Amazon will enjoy more flexibility in terms of keyword choice and have a lower risk of being removed.


Less Competition, More Opportunities!

The shift to E-Commerce in the Middle East is starting to boom right now with the arrival of companies like Shein and AliExpress. Amazon is still relatively new in the Arabic market and has seen great success so far in the three Arabic-speaking countries it is currently operating in. However, many Western-based brands have yet to explore this new Amazon market, leaving many opportunities for companies to expand their reach and enjoy great success – with the right sales approach, targeted to consumer demand!


Amazon-Arabic Country Profiles


United Arab Emirates (UAE)

The UAE was the first country to benefit from the launch of Arabic Amazon as Amazon.ae in 2019 after it bought out Arabic e-commerce giant Souq.com. Since its launch, Amazon UAE has been very successful granted the perks it offers: the ability for customers to pay in local currency via credit card or by cash on arrival of the merchandise, quick delivery, and Arabic-language listings. Currently, Amazon UAE is the biggest player in the UAE E-Commerce market. Amazon UAE, Amazon Saudi Arabia, and Amazon Egypt operate bilingually in both English and Arabic.

Saudi Arabia

Amazon expanded to Saudi Arabia in 2020, again after buying out Souq.com. The Amazon Saudi Arabia marketplace (as Amazon.sa) is independent of the Amazon UAE marketplace and has quickly flourished among Saudis enjoying the ease of online shopping. Similarly to the UAE, Amazon has been very successful in Saudi Arabia, and has even launched an Arabic Saudi-dialect-speaking version of Alexa!

Similar to Amazon UAE and Amazon Saudi Arabia, Amazon Egypt (Amazon.eg) launched in 2021 after Amazon’s acquisition of Souq.com The market for E-Commerce in Egypt is huge, being home to the largest number of internet users in the Middle East region. Like the other two Arab countries in which Amazon operates, Amazon Egypt boasts a wide infrastructural in-country network of employees and fulfillment centers.
