Wheels Express, Another Take At E-Commerce In Jordan

| Aug 23, 2009 | comment 5 Comments

Wheels ExpressWheels Express is a newly launched Jordanian e-commerce portal, taking another hit at cracking the e-commerce nut in the Arab world.

The company’s activity lies somewhere between an online shopping portal and an offline delivery service; providing a catalog of products covering DVDs, books, magazines, t-shirts, tickets, snacks, pre-paid mobile cards and more; and delivering orders directly to your doorstep in Amman (within the 12 daily delivery hours).

Users get to sign up and put in their orders, which for most types of products should be delivered within an hour, if within the 12 hours of service, with payment in cash upon delivery.

Wheels Express does not keep a stock of its own. What it does is list products provided by third party stores, and then acting as the middle-man; handling the order, delivery and payment process.

Wheels Express was founded by a Ibrahim Manna’, Ibrahim Al-Mani and Mohamed Al-Mani.

The web solution was developed by the new Jordanian web company Ideation Box.

    Good idea, but very low efficiency. We need to solve the lack of confidence problem. People should pay online! COD is too manual and restricts scalability.

    Hello Amad, solving the lack of confidence comes in small steps! Once people gets to know you and trust you believe it or not they will be ready to use there credit cards. COD is too manual but its the only method people wants to use. Hopefully Wheels Express will earn the trust of its customers by offering good service and competitive prices.

    Salam Ibrahim,

    I agree, I actually run goyemen.com and it uses COD. I understand the challenge, and I have my fingers crossed hoping that this will change soon.
