Ready to AMPLIFY your e-commerce journey?

WHO IS AMP FOR?

If you are starting an e-commerce business in the UAE, AMP is for you. If you want to save time choosing suppliers, money building your site, and costs when it comes to logistics, then AMP is for you. If you want to AMLIFY your results, improve your chances of success and scale up your online business, then AMP is for you!

AMP is for you if you are:

Drop shipping

If you’re reselling items from third-party vendors and suppliers, without having to stock the items yourself, AMP is for you.

LAUNCHING AN ONLINE STORE

If you sell your own products or resell third-party goods directly to customers (like what Namshi does!), AMP is for you.

BUILDING ONLINE MARKETPLACES

Do you want to launch the next Dubizzle or Mumzworld? Or a B2B portal like Tradeling? Then AMP is for you.

CREATING ON-DEMAND APPS

If you’re building an on-demand app that sells groceries like Instashop or food like Deliveroo, then AMP is for you.

SELLING ON MARKETPLACES

If you plan to sell products on popular marketplaces like Amazon and Noon, AMP is for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I get the discounts for?

Your discounts are valid for 12 months from the date of issue of your e-commerce trade licence.

For example, if you received your trade licence on 1 December 2021, your discounts will be valid until 1 December 2022.

How do I claim my discounts and benefits?

As a member of the AMP E-Commerce Accelerator Programme, you get access to our exclusive AMP Community Portal. Your log-in details will be provided to you once you have successfully joined our programme.

The AMP Community Portal is your one-stop access to your support crew. It shows you all the premium benefits you get as an AMP member. You can activate the benefits you want to claim through the portal, and our partners will then get in touch with you to start the claiming process.

Do I need to coordinate with each of the partners or will I have one point-of-contact from Virtuzone?

You can use the AMP Community Portal to access and activate your benefits via a single platform. Our partners will then contact you to facilitate the process.

As a Virtuzone client, you will also have a Dedicated Relationship Manager, who will assist you through every step of your journey.

What’s included in the AED 60,000 benefits?

You can see all these premium features and benefits via the AMP Community Portal, but you can also click here to get a quick view. We will be adding more benefits all the time, so make sure to watch this space.

What are the documents I need to apply for an e-commerce licence?

You only need a few documents to get started! These are:

  • Passport copy
  • Email address
  • Phone

You do need to have a company name ready to start your e-commerce business setup. If you need help coming up with a name for your business, you can refer to our guide here: Choosing a Company Name in the UAE.

What happens to my discounts when I renew?

The AMP E-commerce Accelerator Programme is designed to remove the barriers and challenges that e-commerce entrepreneurs typically face in their first year of operation. As such, the premium benefits offered are only valid within year 1. However, as a Virtuzone client, you get to enjoy exclusive offers and discounts from our extensive partner programme even beyond year 1. View all our partners here.

How long does it take to get my business license?

You can get your e-commerce licence in as little as 2-3 days.

How do I access the community portal?

Once you have completed setting up your e-commerce business with Virtuzone, you automatically become a member of the AMP E-Commerce Accelerator Programme. Your log-in details will then be emailed to you, and you can start accessing the AMP Community Portal immediately.

How do I register for the AMP programme?

Simply fill out the registration form and a Company Formation Specialist will be in touch with you to guide you through the process. Once you have registered your company trade licence, you will receive a username and password to access the AMP portal. The portal will include a community forum, as well as a list of all the partners included in the accelerator where you can claim your benefits.

How much does the AMP programme cost?

AMP is offered free of cost with the establishment of an e-commerce company with Virtuzone. If you would like to find out how much your company setup will cost, use our E-commerce Business Setup Cost Calculator.
