Selling on the Awok online marketplace

Getting started on Awok

Awok is an e-commerce site established in 2013 and headquartered in Dubai.

It initially started off selling electronics and has since grown to sell a wider range of products.

If you want to become a seller on Awok, you’ll need to register. Awok will decide what products can be listed on the site.

Once your products are approved to be listed, you’ll see them in your dashboard.

From there, you can begin to build your online store.

Awok does offer partial fulfilment services but you’ll need a local address where items can be picked up. Awok would then deliver your items to buyers. So, you would likely need to have an import partner or storage facilities within Dubai.
