The report notes exponential growth in the ecommerce market throughout MENA and Pakistan year on year. In 2020, 47 per cent of consumers said that they expected to shop online more frequently over 2021. This year, approximately 83 per cent say that they will maintain or even increase their current level of ecommerce spending into 2022, suggesting an irrevocable shift in consumer behaviour. This rise in digital commerce has been matched by greater sophistication in the region’s digital payments ecosystem. Payment methods such as cash-on-delivery and bank transfers have once again seen a decrease year-on-year. This shift has been especially pervasive for the convenience economy, with everyday items such as food delivery, groceries, and household goods firm favourites. The report also finds an increase in the frequency of online shopping among consumers, with nearly half (45 per cent) of those surveyed saying they shop online at least once a month. Moreover, 53 per cent say that they are doing more of their shopping online now compared with before the Covid-19 pandemic started.

This has given us a unique vantage point across the market, with our 2021 report highlighting how much growth has been condensed into 12 short months – a testament to progressive government policies and forward-thinking governments who are opening up the region, harnessing the growth potential of fintech, and responding to the changing habits and expectations of their populations,” said Mo Ali Yusuf, regional manager for MENAP at Another sign of the region’s maturing ecommerce and digital payment industries is a sustained increase in cross-border commerce.

Yusuf continues: “For the first time, our data shows us that MENAP has begun to outperform European markets in the adoption of emerging payment methods. This presents a phenomenal opportunity for global and domestic merchants to expand their businesses across MENA.” Leading voices within the region’s business community add perspective to these issues as part of this year’s report. Case studies and issues-based opinions are featured from organisations such as Careem, OSN, Fawry, Tamara, the MENA Fintech Association, Visa and others, underscoring the importance of creative collaborations in advancing digital commerce.
