HOW TO SELL ON JUMIA
Selling on Jumia is a five (5) step process. Surprisingly; Jumia handles four (4) of the processes while you only handle one (1)! This makes life very easy for vendors as you don’t have to worry about handling customer support, keeping sites online, handling delivery and other stressful events that comes with selling goods online.
#1. Sign Up: To sell your product on Jumia, you are required to sign up as a vendor on the Jumia website and fill the online forms. Once the registration process is completed, you will have access to a vendor area (more like the back end of your own store) where you can upload your products and begin to sell on Jumia. Jumia also offers a free training course for new vendors (it’s not mandatory). A vendor support contact number is provided for all vendors, to facilitate easy communication between you and your dedicated account manager.
#2. Making Sales: Once your store is up and running, Jumia would do its own part by directing the right audience to your store. It’s a simple as that. You can also promote your store through social media, it all depends on what you want.
After setting up your store, the next thing to do is wait for your first order. It might be within minutes of setting up your store, it might be longer than that, it all depends on your product niche. Jumia allows you to control your prize product through the seller center. For the seller center, you can update your product information and other vital details about your product.
#3. Jumia Hub/Warehouse: This is the only part where you make offline effort to satisfy your customers. Once you receive an order on your store, and Jumia verifies that you have the goods, you would be notified by Jumia to drop off the product ordered to the nearest Jumia Warehouse where it would be shipped to your buyer.
Alternatively, you can also request for the product to be picked up from your specified location to be sent for delivery to the buyer. You’re expected to package your goods and make it ready for either pick up or drop off at the nearest Jumia hub/warehouse within 24-48hours of receiving the order notification.
#4. Delivery: This is the 4th stage of the process. Once your item gets to Jumia hub/warehouse, Jumia is in charge of handling the delivery to your customer. They would ship the product to your customer’s shipping address
