Instagram Accounts that Sell Makeup in Jeddah
It’s the digital era and shopping online has become more popular then ever. In Saudi Arabia, online shopping has a new twist, ordering through Instagram accounts that stock sought after beauty brands which you cannot buy locally in stores. The demand for the newest beauty products are here but the supply is not. We don’t have all the beauty brands we crave. In the past, we had the option of asking a traveling friend or family member to bring it over. Or ordering it online, which can take weeks and at times can get lost.
Though you do pay slightly more for the products the convenience of getting them immediately and delivered to your doorstep is worth the added costs. If you haven’t ordered before, here is breakdown as to how it works and which popular accounts to order from.
How it Works
These business accounts are home based businesses that women run. They work on What’s App messaging, so simple take down the number and message the account on What’s app with your order and location. They don’t take phone calls. Some accounts also have KIK or email addresses where you can contact them. For delivery there is generally a 30sr added fee and they deliver it right to your home (you can also pick it up yourself to avoid delivery charges). Some accounts deliver the same day or within a few days while others take a couple weeks for you to receive your order.
Why to Shop VIA Instagram
Convenience is the #1 reason to shop from these accounts. You don’t have to leave your home, you can pay in cash and don’t have to worry about having an international credit card for online orders. Also getting the product immediately is another benefit from ordering through the account.
Payment is most commonly paid upon delivery in cash to the driver. If it’s a pre-order, the payment is taken in advance and then your shipment arrives a few weeks later. They charge more for the product then if you bought it at a store obviously, that’s how they make money. So be prepared to pay between 30sr-100sr more depending on the product and the account you buy it from.
