UAE, KSA – 03 April 2018 – Wadi, the leading e-commerce site in KSA and UAE has recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary by giving their customers one of the biggest flash sales in March, with unbeatable prices and loyalty points with each purchase.

The newly launched global shop stocks over 1 million products starting from 9SAR that range from accessories, electronics, beauty, fashion, toys, home & kitchen and baby care.
“We have launched Dragon Souk to offer an even wider range of products to our customers, providing them with products that are not easily found in the Middle East, as it is a new market for e-commerce compared to established ones like China, India and Europe. With our unbeatable prices, we aim to offer our consumers an escape from constantly paying a fortune for products”, comments Pratik Gupta, one of Wadi’s founders.
Wadi has also announced plans to open another office in China. They are expanding their stance in the international marketplace by establishing physical operations across countries, and this launch takes Wadi far ahead from its competitors in terms of assortment, logistics and technology innovation. Now sellers in other regions of the world can start selling to customers in the GCC seamlessly without bearing any pain for logistics.
“Statistics show that 30% of the online shopping process in the Middle East still happens from international e-commerce players like Alibaba, Amazon, eBay etc, but these players take 15-45++ days to deliver with high shipping fees and no option of cash on delivery. They do not provide Arabic content on their websites and don’t have sound policies. Wadi provides a unique solution to this, with our international store that provides as of today 1m+ products from international countries with 15-day delivery, with an option of cash on delivery, Arabic catalogue and low shipping fees.” Adds Pratik Gupta.
Wadi, one of the strongest e-commerce players in the region and the number one ranked shopping app in both the KSA and UAE, records a tripled seller base, with 200% increase in year on year growth. In addition to the boom, Wadi consistently achieves an unparalleled score of 60% on the Net Promoter Score (a global index that measures customer satisfaction for e-commerce platforms) and continues to see an increase of repeat satisfied customer’s every quarter.
