Wadi entered the UAE market in 2015 and it offers international brands of cosmetics, fashion accessories and gadgets. They also have a fast turnaround and delivery time especially if you pay by credit/debit card in comparison to choosing the cash on delivery (COD) option. Some customers who had to return the items also commended their stress-free after-sales service.

Souq.com has a promise of same-day delivery of items if you confirmed your order before 3 pm and this works both for products you paid for online or through COD. However, the shipping rate for e-paid items is at Dh22, while it is Dh26 for cash on delivery. They have everything from kitchen items, fashion accessories, laptops, headphones, mobiles up to perfumes and makeup.

Drizzle also uses the power of bulk buying so it can offer better “deals a day”. They sell more of their brands than internationally recognised ones. The difference? Not much, buyers claim. Generic items such as shoes, clothing and other household products are as much as 70 per cent cheaper. They also run site-wide promotions fairly often, so be on the lookout. Get free delivery within the UAE for a minimum purchase of Dh200.
