Amazon has completed its acquisition of the Middle Eastern marketplace Souq.



The two companies said today that they have completed an initial integration that allows customers to log into using their Amazon account credentials.

Next up, they plan to integrate products and services between the two sites to leverage their respective scale. In an announcement, in particular spoke of the potential to integrate with Amazon’s global seller and customer base to boost its business.
