Online Shopping on the up in UAE

| No TrackBacks
According to the recent MasterCard survey, the number of people shopping online in the UAE has been increasing steadily compared to last year but there is good news on the horizon, more people have the intention of shopping online in the coming 6 months. One of the major reasons for not going online and shopping is the security issues, which accounted for 45% of the reason and another reason was that families in the UAE have a culture of going out especially during the weekend for some shopping and it will hard to change that. Experts say the trend will slowly change as the online offer does better offers and also there is convenience it offers and the ease of buying anything from around the world.Sanjay Amarnani, the chief executive of the consumer electronics retailer Aido.com, said sales had grown rapidly since the site launched in mid-2009.

"It is just a matter of time before it catches up," Mr Amarnani said. "Online is the way to go all over the world, whether in Europe or the US."In this part of the world, online retail was non-existent. Now it has grown and people are more aware."

Another region which is seeing how important it is to have an online presence. It is almost inevitable and even a place which is very strict to its culture has seen internet taking over. Every small company now has to take this into consideration when starting their own company, it is now not just for the direct market where they are in, but beyond now and have to make sure they are flexible enough to be able to meet needs of others when going online. Also it will be a real pain going after every country specific domain names, rather going for more generic ones would make sense and save time for companies.
