Majid Al Futtaim has officially launched an online marketplace through carrefouruae.com that provides the company's shopping mall tenants and other businesses across the UAE with a new e-commerce channel to reach their customers.
The platform, which has been successfully piloted for six months with third-party sellers, is available on the popular Carrefour mobile app and website which draws millions of visits per month, making it one of the most visited e-commerce platforms in the UAE.
A wide range of Majid Al Futtaim shopping mall tenants have already joined the platform, including Borders, LUSH, Tavola, Arabian Oud and Jacky's.
Alain Bejjani, chief executive officer at Majid Al Futtaim said: "The new business environment that we are operating in is challenging us all to find solutions that benefit our partners, communities and society-at-large. At Majid Al Futtaim, we are working hard to support our stakeholders' needs today, while putting in place initiatives that keep the economy moving and prepare us for tomorrow's world."
The marketplace currently lists more than 250,000 products, with sales increasing by more than ten times in the last ten weeks, already reaching over 1,300 average daily orders. While the platform represents an opportunity for businesses to continue reaching their customers at this time, it also has the potential to enable significant growth for businesses looking to begin or expand their online offering and reach a much larger customer base.
Aramex is the official logistics provider for the marketplace sellers who require a reliable and efficient last mile delivery experience for their customers. - business@khaleejtimes.com
