Bahrain launches virtual mall in kingdom for shoppers

  • Bahrain News

Bahrain has launched a virtual mall to enable shops to continue serving their customers during the ongoing global Covid-19 outbreak.

The mall.bh website features a range of products from more than 100 companies operating in the kingdom including fashion, homeware and electronics.




Several major brands are set to participate in the virtual service, with the government-run website not charging any fees to retailers amid physical store closures to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Zayed bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahrain’s Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, said:

“This will enable companies to continue offering their products to consumers. It has been designed by the Ministry and will provide its services to companies for free.”

The initiative is the latest digital offering from the kingdom to help combat the ongoing global health crisis, with solutions including remote learning and a nationwide bracelet tracking programme rolled out across the country.

Meanwhile, Bahrain’s national electronic wallet BenefitPay announced a 1,257 percent increase in the number of remittances through its Fawri+ service during March– worth BHD103 million ($273m).
