TITLE: ​How do I register an account?

 Registering a Watsons account is so easy! Simply provide your details on our Register page and click Sign up now and you are done!

TITLE:How do I change my password?

Trying to sign in but can't remember your password? Don't worry, simply click on Forgot your password on the sign in page and indicate the email address you registered with Watsons. We'll send password reset instructions to that email address.

TITLE: Can I change my email address?

We’re sorry, but that’s not possible because your existing email address is linked to all your account details. If you’d like to use a different email address, then you’ll need to create a new Watsons account.

TITLE: Can I add a new shipping address or edit my existing address?

Yes, of course! Just sign into your account, access your account and select Address book. Now, you can add or edit your shipping addresses.

TITLE: What else can I do with my Order history apart from viewing past orders?

Your Order history will give you plenty of information! This is where you can check in on current order statuses, access your digital receipts, print them or re-order previously ordered items.

TITLE: Can I shop without an account?

Yes, you can, by choosing to checkout as a guest. However, we will still need a few details from you like your contact number and address, so we can process your order and know where to send it.

TITLE: I can't log into my account. What could be the reason for this?

There are several reasons why you may face problems logging into your account:
  • Make sure to login using the same email address and password that you have registered with.
  • If you have lost or forgotten your password, click on Forgot password and we’ll send you an email with instructions on how to reset your password.
  • If you’re still facing other problems signing into your account, our Customer Service team would be happy to help. You can get in touch through the Contact Us form on our website. You can also email us at customer.service@watsons.ae or call us at 800-WATSONS (800-9287667) and we'll assist you as soon as we can!
  • TITLE: What else can I do with my account?

    While you are signed into your account, you can also view your recent orders. Please note however that, because of our recent migration, orders placed before 15 March 2023 will no longer be available in Order history. You can still view your order details by checking the emails we sent updating you on your order status.

    You can track your order from your account.

    TITLE: ​Can I amend my order after it has been placed?

    TITLE: Can I cancel my order?

    Yes, but only if your order is still being processed by us. To cancel your order, get in touch with us through 800-WATSONS (800 9287667).

You can instead use our free returns, which is within 30 days of you receiving your products.

    TITLE: Why were products in my order cancelled?

    If some of your products were cancelled, this might be because they became out of stock after you placed your order or are already nearing their expiration date. If you paid online, we would have automatically started working on the refund of your cancelled products.

    TITLE: My entire order was cancelled even if I didn’t initiate the cancellation. What happened?

    This could have been because we ran out of stock for your product(s) way too quickly. On the other hand, it may also be because we could not verify your online payment details. In this case, we would have automatically started working on your refund.

    TITLE: How do I save products in my wish list?

    If you haven't quite made a decision about purchasing a product, don't fret. Just add the product(s) to your wish list while you think it over. Note, though, that we’ll only save your wish list for 30 days, so make sure to check back and place your order before then. You can access your wish list by selecting the heart icon at the top right corner of the homepage.
