Jumia Global is a service that extends the supply of the products the customer will find on Jumia website. Sellers from all around the world can sell their products with Jumia and these products shipped overseas will be marked on the Jumia website with the mention “Jumia Global”. A prepayment is required when customers want to order one of these products and they can be returned only for defective reasons. It takes longer in general to receive these products coming from overseas.
To enjoy Jumia free delivery, the total amount of the customer order should be more than ₦50,000. The free delivery is only available for cash on delivery locations and in Lagos. When a customer order from Jumia all the costs are visible at the end of the checkout process and nothing more is charged.
Jumia sells products from all over the world thanks to Jumia Global, however, the company doesn’t ship outside of Africa. Today Jumia ships across more than 10 countries of Africa such as: Nigeria, Egypt, Kenya, Algeria, Ivory coast, Cameroon, Ghana, Morocco, Tanzania, Senegal, Tunisia and Uganda.
Jumia provides the customers original and unused products and the company ensures that every seller that could provide non-genuine items is immediately delisted from Jumia. The customers can find refurbished products (it is precise on the website) with the best quality grade and with a full guarantee from the seller.
When an order is placed online with an e-commerce business, the customers can either pay via cash on delivery or by credit card. If you purchase your Jumia order by cash on delivery and you did not receive your Jumia parcel there is no matter of refund, but when the payment is made via credit card and the item gets undelivered, you can open a dispute on Jumia and ask for refund. Most of the buyers in Kenya chose to pay in cash that has ultimately enhanced the problem of completion of delivery.
If your item remains undelivered and you’ve already paid for it, you as a customer can take a look for the delivery status as the time of delivery does not include the public holidays and vacation. If no status is found or for more than 15 days with no updates, it is high time to get in touch with the customer representatives.
