WeMENA supports local businesses amidst COVID-19


April 14, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based start-up WeMENA, an online B2B marketplace for wholesalers, is supporting local businesses to keep up with regional demand for essential PPE (personal protective equipment) and sanitisation products amidst COVID-19 pandemic.

Among its 50,000-strong product line, over 1,000 products are being added every week. Recent additions on WeMENA include catering supplies, electronics and stationery, besides PPE and sanitisation products.

“In this especially difficult time for everybody, our site, which launched at the beginning of 2020, is proving to be a cost-effective way of helping companies stay afloat during this unusual time. We are working relentlessly to keep maintaining access to stock levels by working closely with our partners, our prices are kept fair and ensuring key industries have access to PPE, hand sanitiser and disinfection and sterilisation products, for example,” said Pali Banwait, co-founder, WeMENA.

“We’re working around the clock with manufacturers and distributors to get essentials into the hands of businesses so they can continue business – and continue to bring in revenue, while ensuring their staff feel safe and protected,” he added.

Banwait cited the example of small grocery stores, which can take full advantage of WeMENA’s large supply sources by buying in smaller quantities with flexible payment terms. Another recent example was a Dubai-based food production plant, which has been able to remain open after purchasing essential PPE sourced from WeMENA for its staff.

WeMENA offers a simple, straightforward gateway that brings bulk purchasers together with reliable, trustworthy manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers. Buyers include retailers, hospitality outlets, offices and the procurement departments of large organisations. On the other hand, WeMENA provides sellers with hassle-free access to new business customers, while offering them with a reliable payment solution, handling all delivery logistics and post-delivery customer service issues.
