Theqa is a government-owned, not-for-profit trustmark program, with the primary objective of inspiring trust and credibility in Qatar’s eCommerce ecosystem, empowering consumers and businesses to rapidly and safely grow the local eCommerce market.
A Theqa trustmark certifies that a website is genuine. It reassures consumers that it has been approved by MOTC to sell goods and services online, building trust, instilling confidence, and encouraging preference for local eCommerce sites.
Theqa’s primary objective is to support and stimulate Qatar’s eCommerce sector, where there is significant opportunity to grow domestic sales in online retail.
Our goal is to engage with online vendors as partners, providing support and education in areas that are critical to success, and to accelerate their adoption of eCommerce in line with government and international standards.
By identifying and certifying credible eMerchants, Theqa will reassure Qatar’s online customers that they can shop domestically with trust and confidence, and take pride in Qatar’s best-in-class eCommerce marketplace.
