Co-founder of JUMIA, Jeremy Hodara: “We want to offer all Africans a variety of assortments with a high quality, for best prices. After our launch in Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya, Egypt and Ivory Coast in less than one and a half years we are eager to expand our success story to Uganda. We see the same potential here and are more than happy to provide every citizen in Uganda with a secure, convenient and stress-free online shopping experience.

After a purchase is completed online, the goods are delivered directly to the customer’s doorstep. Payment is made in cash once goods have been received, a method which is called ‘Cash-On-Delivery’ (COD) and if the customer desires to return, JUMIA offers an easy and stress-free returns policy.

In 2013, JUMIA launched its first mobile application, created its own ecommerce campus in West Africa and won “The Best New Retail Launch of the Year” at the World Retail Awards – being the first African company to win an award at the prestigious conference.

JUMIA is now present in six African countries.
