MESOPOTAMIA NEWS “ERDOGAN’S MODERNITY!” – The ‘Idlib Online’ Service: Ordering Goods Online From Turkey

by Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi  •  Sep 21, 2020 at 6:15 am

he links between Turkey and the region of Idlib and its environs in northwest Syria have continued to strengthen in recent times. For example, many food goods (especially the more complex ones) that are available in Idlib stores are imported from Turkey. Further, the collapse of the Syrian pound has prompted a widespread shift to the use of the Turkish lira in daily life in the area.

A more interesting example of those economic links is a newly established service called ‘Idlib Online,’ which I discovered via the Telegram channel of the Atma branch of KFC Idlib. Incidentally, KFC Idlib is also using Turkish liras to price the items on its menu).

‘Idlib Online,’ which officially declares itself to be an independent enterprise, allows people inside Idlib and its environs to place orders with the service for goods on the Turkish websites of some well-known companies like Amazon, Gap, Samsung and H&M. ‘Idlib Online’ will then work with a Turkish cargo company to get the orders delivered to them within ten working days. ‘Idlib Online’ charges a 20% surcharge as part of arranging the deliveries. For example, if a person’s order amounts to 100 Turkish liras, there will be a 20 Turkish lira delivery fee, making the total cost 120 Turkish liras.

Note that ‘Idlib Online’ does not operate this service for people living in the ‘Euphrates Shield’ or ‘Olive Branch’ areas of north Aleppo countryside.

Below are the adverts for ‘Idlib Online’ in English, Russian and Arabic.
