The launch of turkishsouq.com comes at a time when trade between Qatar and Turkey is growing, giving Qatari producers new opportunities to showcase their products in international markets. Turkishsouq.com is based on the idea of giving customers a pleasant shopping experience as well as of searching for products they want to buy. In addition to a dedicated 24-hour customer service, the shopping process does not require the customer to open an account to be able to purchase from the Turkish Souq. Currently, purchase orders are only available to the residents of Qatar, and purchases are delivered exclusively to addresses in Qatar. Qatar Post will be expanding turkishsouq.com to all countries around the world in the near future

The re-launch of the new e-commerce site at QITCOM 2019 confirms Qatar Post's shift towards digitization by expanding its e-commerce platforms and services.
