Namshi claims to be the first e-commerce player to expand into Qatar after Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates agreed to normalise their relations with the country in January. The platform will now offer expedited delivery to Qatar and has begun accepting pre-orders, Arabian Business reports.

Namshi was acquired by Emaar Properties, the real estate developer that has invested in properties like Dubai Mall, in 2017. The platform, which stocks the likes of Topshop, Calvin Klein and Nike, has recorded a 50 percent increase in business and 33 percent rise in new customer acquisition since Covid-19 broke out.
