Rocket Internet’s Jumia has launched in Uganda as the company promises to provide its new customers with a wide range of products including: fashion, electronics, home appliances, mobile devices and beauty.
The launch in Uganda makes JUMIA available in six African countries (Kenya, Nigeria , Morocco, Egypt and Ivory Coast ) beating Konga.com, its closest competitor by storm.
According to a statement made available to TechMoran, after the purchase has been completed online it will be delivered directly to the customer’s doorstep. With ‘Cash-On-Delivery’ (COD) customers will be able to make payments in cash once the goods have been received and if they feel they want to return the item, they can do so easily as Jumia offers an easy and stress-free returns policy.
In a statement, Co-founder of JUMIA, Jeremy Hodara said, “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.
Jumia has done so much in just a few months after its launch. Last year alone, the firm 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.
