Discount.ae is an online consumer electronics distributor in Dubai, UAE. Serving over 3,000 customers and shipping over 20,000 products across the Middle East. Discount.ae was created by the young entrepreneur Ashton Hettiarachi in his small apartment. At an early stage, Ashton realized customers weren’t just looking for quality products, they needed a service, a good and fast one.
Back in the days, consumer behaviour was to travel to a retail store to buy something they desired, but it was very time-consuming and frustrating. Discount.ae began from a simple concept —“Try Before You Buy & Receive Your Order Within 4 Hours” allowing consumers to buy products within Dubai in relatively a short period. The consumer can try the product before making the payment once the product is delivered to a consumer’s doorsteps. This simple procedure has not only helped to build trust, convenience and long-term customer relationships it has helped to grow the business rapidly.
