    If it made logical sense and profit I'm sure someone had either attempted to try it.

    To much logistics cost,it would cost 38.50 to ship a iPad from us to Saudi Arabia.

    and the reason i asked the question earlier is that i am an autogeek!
    and i wanna try a lot of those items which we dont have in my country the only thing we have is meguiars and not all the new ones

    and if happened by chance that i open a detailing shop<-- my ambition featuring and representing autogeek items specially ((dual action polishers))
    There is a reason why I bet meguairs did a lot of rd research and development and marketing and found out it was probably more of a headache and didn't meet there minimum profit guidelines .shipping there is out of control.and a lot of products are flammable,and if so tack on another 20 dollars.

    A lot of flammeable items are imported Into Saudi Arabia every month, so that cant be the reason. The nonexistent size of the market is probably the main reason behind lack of detailers shops.

    As such, ArmorAll products are quite easily available in Saudi Arabia. I have also found Megs, and Autoglym at times in Saco stores although without any consistencies.

    Once again, any chance I can find a half decent Da Polisher plus pads etc in Jeddah? I dont know where to search for it، and never seen them in Saco. Someone can save me from importing it from US or UK.

    I understand what you are saying,a da from us to Saudi would you pay a extra 50.00 or more for shipping,and the answer from probably a vast majority of auto care users would probably say no.so the end result is the cost burden of shipping customs etc.Im sure Saco looked into the possible opportunities as well as Meg's and there are to many loophole to get around to make a decent profit.obviously there are flammable liquids shipped there,but the products they ship can absorb the cost being that there's more profit.usually a bottle of wax that cost 20.00 the dealer pays 8.00 to inventory it,so there is a very little profit,to be made when you incur all the taxes and shipping and to keep a business profitable.so that's why Saudi will never obtain all the goods we have.ag has to offer discounts every other day to get rid of inventory,that model would not work when dealing in overseas sales.

    There are plenty of sources in that region to obtain clay.

    I'm in U.S. Google clay in your region easily obtained along with coating etc,with all the expensive cars there,has to be a distributor locally within a 70 mi radius .ceramic coating is used like crazy over there.

    If there are any pro detailers near you, maybe talk to them and find out how they source supplies.
