DokkanAfkar.com Launches “Designer Program” in Saudi Arabia and the GCC
DokkanAfkar.com, one of the first e-commerce websites in Saudi Arabia for creative products, announced the launch of its products in the GCC.
This month, DokkanAfkar.com launched “Designer Program” in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, where designers can upload their creative designs on T-shirts, mugs and other products on the DokkanAfkar.com website. Then the site promotes, markets and sells these products to the site visitors. Upon completion of the sale process, the designer gets a percentage of the amount generated.
The idea of “Designer Program” is to give an opportunity to creative designers to make money and concentrate on making beautiful art. “Designer Program” idea is based on the implantation of Arabic fine art on clothing and other products, instead of the imported art which does not represent the community much.
Ammar Waganah, CEO of the Company, said: “DokkanAfkar.com came up with the program idea to give opportunity to young designers of both genders to work freely at any time and make money. This new program exemplifies DokkanAfkar.com concept for gathering both designers and enthusiasts of innovative and stylish designs. Our website is a unique link between the innovative designer and those who require the products, and thus it saves a lot of effort on both sides. It also guarantees the professional execution of the business transaction, where each party enjoys full protection in all regards. Our services are presently available in the GCC states.”
The platform was founded in 2013 in Jeddah; since then, DokkanAfkar.com has had a huge market increase to reach more than 100,000 customers. Last year, Mobily Ventures and Riyad TAQNIA Fund funded the startup with $2 million.
