Souk Vs Souq.com
Dubai has ample shopping malls and souks, and now the online shopping trend is catching on in the UAE. Souq.com an online auction site offers UAE users to buy and sell items online with free delivers. It is based on the same lines is a much popular ebay.com, and initially the response was poor but recently people have started using the site, its free to list items and the company charges a commision on sales. I guess people are getting too busy to go out and shop and thus are turning to local online venues for good deals.
