YallaHub Partners with WEE Marketplace to Digitalize the Industry
To accelerate the GCC e-commerce market digitalization and introduce the fastest 1-hour delivery in the UAE, YallaHub has announced a collaboration with WEE Marketplace.
YallaHub is a quick-commerce as a service (QAAS) platform aiding businesses to enter the United Arab Emirates market.
Leveraging a shop-in-shop format and making the UAE e-commerce omnichannel, YallaHub's collaboration with WEE will facilitate the sale of goods through both YallaMarket and WEE marketplace.
The companies aim to enhance the GCC e-commerce market through their fastest innovative solutions for sales and delivery opening new opportunities for Emirati and foreign suppliers.
In 2023, YallaHub raised $6 million for MENA expansion into Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Leo Dovbenko, CEO of Yalla!Hub stated: “This collaboration with WEE Marketplace signifies a major step forward in our mission to revolutionize e-commerce through digitalization in the UAE and GCC, making market entry and operations smoother both for customers and businesses."
The e-commerce market in the Emirates has reached US$12.8 billion (according to Statista's estimate in 2022), and it is expected to grow to US$20 billion by 2027.
Express delivery accounts for 5.5% of the total merchandise turnover, which is approximately $700 million. Among express delivery categories, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, flowers, and food products are leading the way.
Positioned uniquely in the UAE marketplace, WEE is known for its fast delivery services. WEE marketplace, which operates like the American Target Plus model, will now feature goods from YallaHub prominently on their platform.
This partnership empowers consumers in Dubai to order goods with delivery within an hour, extending to next-day delivery for the rest of the Emirates. The commingled efforts will enable WEE to continue its tradition of onboarding reliable suppliers and high-quality goods.
Anastasia Kim, CEO and co-founder of WEE marketplace said: “WEE Marketplace and YallaHub are absolute leaders of the UAE fast e-commerce market, and this partnership opens new horizons for brands, allowing them to enter at once both platforms.
"We choose the brands very carefully aiming to give the best products to our customers."
Launched last year, the WEE marketplace is known for good service both for sellers and clients. YallaHub's partnership further enhances this impression by enabling businesses to showcase their high-quality, reliable goods on the WEE marketplace.
