After being a World Retail Award nominee JUMIA has introduced 16 cash on delivery locations in Lagos in a move to take shopping to the masses.
According to Tunde Kehinde and Raphael Afaedor, co-founders JUMIA, “Seeing that Nigeria is still largely an offline market when it comes to retail, we constantly innovate and improve our service delivery to soothe the shopping experiences of our customers. While some customers have a little doubt about entering details online to make payments, a few others would rather want to have their goods in hand before parting with their hard earned cash. These among other factors have prompted we keep on innovating through service we are rendering our amazing customers, we exist because they are.”
Jumia.com.ng, a Rocket Internet-backed online shopping destination introduced the 16 cash on delivery locations across Nigeria just days after it was nominated for two main awards at World Retail Awards this year. The first one is the “Pure Play Retailer of the Year” and the second one is “Best New Retail Launch“.
This cash on delivery locations mean that for more customers, purchases from the jumia.com online store can be paid by using cash and their ATM cards nearby. JUMIA provides a convenient stress-free shopping experience and takes the marketplace to their customers.
The new cash on delivery locations are Ikotun, Okokomaiko, Mile 2, Ojodu, Satellite Town, Ojo-Military Cantonment, Ojo-Ajangbadi, Ojo, Lagos Trade Fair, Igando, Iyana Iba, Ejigbo, Isheri, Badore, Iyana Ishashi, Alaba. This comes on the heels of planned launches of more pick-up stations across few states in addition to existing stations in Benin, Warri, Port-Harcourt, Kaduna, Abuja and one in Lekki, Lagos.
Further, the World Retail Awards just nominated JUMIA as the leading online “Pure Play Retailer ” and the “Best New Retail Launch” of the year. The Awards are a global platform that acknowledges and promotes excellence in the field of retail. The awards are covering key areas of retail and operation skills. As Nigeria’s no.1 shopping destination, JUMIA plays big within the Nigerian market, with a vision to being the solution to retail both offline and online in sub-Saharan Africa.
