With the country’s e-commerce market steadily on the rise, JadoPado—a new e-commerce experience for consumers in the UAE —announced today that it has seen exceptional business growth over the first five months of 2012 emerging as a young but formidable player in the digital space with a 40% jump in online sales since the beginning of the year. Spurred by a shift in consumer preference to shop online whilst utilizing the company’s same-day delivery model, JadoPado further unveiled a 38% increase in monthly customers with nearly 56,000 visitors now browsing the site each month.
“With so much happening in the region’s e-commerce sector and in the UAE in particular, it is an incredibly exciting time to be involved in the market and to have developed a solid business model which works for local consumers,” said Omar Kassim, Founder of JadoPado. “A strong emphasis on really speedy delivery and awesome customer service has been a source of particular growth for JadoPado in offering the best online experience possible.”
JadoPado offers UAE consumers a vast range of Electronics & Fashion products all delivered within a few hours after purchase, giving consumers an “instant gratification e-commerce experience”. Overall e-commerce spending has risen rapidly over the past year with a recent study by Visa noting the market to be approximately USD 2 billion across the GCC, with the UAE leading that with an estimated USD 520 million in online spending.
“We are seeing robust growth in the UAE’s e-commerce sector and believe it will continue to rise as consumers look towards alternative outlets for exclusive products and more attractive pricing” added Kassim.
Over the coming year, JadoPado aims to increase its presence across the GCC and the greater Middle East to capitalize on this trend. The company plans to implement a similar model as that of the UAE in other regional markets, actively growing the e-commerce space by driving greater awareness of the availability of high quality online experiences while emphasizing the advanced security and payment methods now available in the region’s online space.
