Amazon has announced that it’s making its Prime membership program, which currently has around 150 million members around the world, available to consumers in Saudi Arabia.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Amazon Prime in Saudi Arabia, providing customers with the best of shopping and entertainment,” Ronaldo Mouchawar, CEO and co-founder of Souq.com, the largest e-commerce platform in the Arab world, owned by Amazon, Inc. “Customers in Saudi Arabia can now enjoy all the benefits included in this program, starting with free and faster delivery times,” he added.

More specifically, the Prime membership comes with free one-day shipping to all key metropolitan areas; free two-day shipping to cities such as Jubail, Khamis Mushayt, Hail, Abha, and others; and free delivery to all other areas 4 to 6 days.

In addition to free local delivery, Amazon Prime members can order international items from Amazon.sa and have them shipped for free in 2 business days from Amazon UAE or 7 business days from Amazon US (eligible for orders over 200 SAR).

If free shipping doesn’t excite you much, then you might be happy to learn that Amazon Prime membership also includes non-shipping benefits. Prime members can watch popular movies and TV shows on Prime Video (complete with Arabic subtitles and dubbing), get exclusive gaming content on Prime Gaming, and enjoy attractive shopping deals throughout the year.

world's largest metaverse developer opens dubai office

LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.

So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.

The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.

“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE. The MENA region is a key market for us, and we believe that our presence in Dubai will allow us to assist the region and explore new opportunities. We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.

Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
