"This year we have prepared for the largest ever online shopping festival with an anticipated one million item expected to be sold via our website and mobile app during the four-day extravaganza," said Ronaldo Mouchawar, CEO and co-founder, Souq.com.

Mouchawar explains more about the company's approach to White Friday 2016 and how the retailer is gearing up for the biggest online sales of the year.

For the first time during White Friday, the aim is for all deliveries to the UAE to be dispatched within 48 - 72 hours of purchase. For customers who prefer to flash the plastic and purchase their items using their credit card, Souq.com is partnering with Visa to offer 10 per cent off all deals during the White Friday 2016 sale.
