Every person living in Saudi Arabia, who has at least one encounter with the great postal service, knows that it is a process engulfed with hassles, refunds, and disputes, especially when it comes to online shopping.
After spending some time in the Kingdom, I have shortlisted the best online shops that deliver in Saudi Arabia. These online stores have been evaluated according to their prices, customer service and the variety of options that they offer.
It is important to remember that the most reliable way of shipping anywhere is courier shipping which is traceable, and if it is not offered one should not take the risk through regular post.
