Customers shopping on Amazon.sa will enjoy great prices and fast delivery across 34 categories, including electronics, apparel, home and kitchen, and grocery.

Amazon acquired Souq.com in 2017 and is now automatically redirecting Souq.com customers to the newly rolled-out Amazon.sa store. All existing Souq.com customer credentials, wish lists, orders, delivery addresses, payment methods, and customer support queries have been converted to new Amazon.sa accounts.

Built upon Amazon’s existing investments in Souq.com, customers in Saudi Arabia are now able to shop on Amazon.sa in Arabic and English by using the Amazon shopping app or by visiting www.amazon.sa. Both the app and the website will offer a rich Arabic browsing experience, accurate search results, trusted product reviews, personalized recommendations, and simple order management, all backed by Arabic language customer support.

Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon MENA and Co-Founder of Souq.com, says: “Today marks a key milestone in Amazon’s promise to customers and businesses across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With Amazon.sa, we want to provide what customers have been asking us for: the ability to shop a broader selection of both local products and international goods from Amazon. Partnering closely with our local and global sellers, we will continue to delight customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by growing our product range while ensuring great prices, fast delivery, and a convenient and trusted shopping experience.”

His Excellency Eng. Anef Abanomi, President of the Saudi Post Corporation, commented: “We have been working with Amazon since 2019 to deliver packages to Souq.com customers across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As Souq.com rebrands to Amazon.sa, we are looking forward to supporting even more customer deliveries in Saudi Arabia through this next chapter in our collaboration with Amazon, continuing our strategic transformation.”

Saudi businesses of all sizes can now begin selling their products on Amazon.sa with access to easy listing tools, payment processing, promotional features to help them get discovered by customers, and simplified logistics solutions with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). In 2019, nearly 225,000 small and medium-sized businesses surpassed $100,000 in sales in Amazon’s stores worldwide.

Safeguarding our workforce and communities during COVID-19

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, Amazon has been closely following the safety measures set out by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health. Focusing on ensuring the highest safety and hygiene standards across all its facilities and delivery network, Amazon has implemented more than 150 proactive safety measures including increased cleaning, providing masks, gloves, and temperature checks for our workforce, as well as implementing physical distancing practices.

As communities in Saudi Arabia and around the world integrate physical distancing into different aspects of their daily lives, Amazon recognizes the unique and growing role it is playing to ensure people’s needs are fulfilled while they stay safe at home.

“In the past few months, many customers have turned to online shopping to find their everyday needs. We are committed to doing everything we can to support our customers, and to keep our employees and customers safe. We are using our ability to innovate quickly to support people’s needs, while investing to unlock growth opportunities for local businesses,” Mouchawar added.

The Golden Globe® Award-winning actor Ramy Youssef returns for a second season to OSN Streaming, the region’s leading streaming platform, for his critically acclaimed performance in the Hulu Original comedy series RAMY. All episodes will be available starting May 29th, exclusively on OSN Streaming, at the same time as the US.


The 10-episode series follows first-generation, Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan, who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighbourhood. The series brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists. In the second season, Ramy delves further into his spiritual journey, finding a new Muslim community and embracing a deeper commitment to his faith.ramy-2-copy

The series features the Golden Globe Award winner for Best Actor in a television comedy, Ramy Youssef; and Academy Award winner, Mahershala Ali. Shadi Al Fons, Mohammed Amer, Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, May Calamawy, Rosaline Elbay, Dave Merheje, Laith Nakli and Steve Way also appear in the series.

Roula Karam, VP of Acquisition & Head of Arabic Programming commented, “We’re thrilled about the upcoming launch of the second season of Ramy on OSN following the great reception from our audience during the show’s first season. Bringing world-class, award-winning shows such as Ramy on our platform truly reinforces the mission of providing curated content that we know millennials in our region relate to and love.”
