Best Shopping Alternatives

If you are in Dubai or anywhere in the UAE or MENA, and do not have the luxury of time to visit the gigantic Dubai malls or any malls in your area for that matter, the top 10 online stores based in the UAE and anywhere in MENA are here for you to choose.

Major online stores that are mostly based in the US still have their presence in this side of the world but if you’ll consider delivery time, consider local. The locally based or MENA based online stores are the best option to save time.

The following are the 10 most visible stores everywhere in the region. Visible in a sense that these are the names and brands that are mostly seen and liked by many in social networks, billboards & signboards and also these are the talk-of-the-town stores. These are online stores that do not have physical stores and are only focused in online marketing and sales.

They have different line of products or items being sold. By clicking the logo, a new window will pop up and redirect you to its home page.

Presenting, the Top 10 Online Stores In The UAE And The Whole Of MENA (in no particular order): – more on electronics

aido – more on electronics

alshop – more on fashion

desado – more on electronics

jadopado – more on fashion

lemuda – more on fashion

markavip – more on fashion

namshi – more on electronics

souq – more on fashion

sukar – more on home essentials


One of the best reasons why locally based or MENA based online stores are preferred by many is the common feature that these top online stores have, the “cash on delivery” payment scheme. This is an added advantage to both parties basically. With cash on delivery payment option, for customers’ end, it gives security that you’ll only pay upon seeing or receiving the ordered product. For online stores’ end, the payment processing is right there upon making the delivery, no more long bank processing compared to credit/debit cards or PayPal payments. And of course, the transaction period is a bit shorter compared to other major online stores such as eBay, Amazon etc that will usually make you wait for a longer time.

If there’s still more region based online stores which you think need to be added in the line up top online stores in the UAE and the whole of MENA, please leave it as comments below.

    Nice, but there’s a lot more to be added. Check’s footer having quite a few. Rgds 🙂

  2. Hi Faissal, I have checked meefind’s footer but I think most of them are not focusing online sales. Like carrefour that has physical stores all over Dubai. I’d rather not include them. The above list of stores are only online. 🙂

    But I do hope, especially for start-up online stores, will improve their presence and visibility through marketing and then compete well, for the benefit of us all customers. More online stores, mean more choices. 🙂 One online store though which I think starting to make noise is 🙂

    Thanks for dropping by Faissal.

    how is the delivery time if ordered from
    they have really crazy prices for the perfumes and when asked if they are genuine or not, they mentioned that instead of spending heavily on marketing – billboards and paper media, its better to provide the consumers on discounts and shoulder the rest.
    So basically, customers get good price and at the same time, they get marketing done.

    Looks reasonable enough when they said that.
    Now worried how long do they take to deliver so that i am prepared for any worst situations
