Bata Kenya, a leading footwear manufacturer and retailer, has joined the list of local companies that are storming the Jumia Kenya online marketplace.
The company that boasts over 100 ultra modern stores across the country has chosen to list on the online marketplace in a move to reach a wider market and increase sales.
The Jumia online marketplace is an online platform that allows merchants to list their products on Jumia.co.ke, transforming their physical store to an e-store and bridging the gap between online and offline sales. The seller centre allows merchants to monitor their sales as well as pending, shipped and cancelled orders on their own.
Merchants listing on the website enjoy stress-free selling experience. The Jumia Kenya online marketplace handles the product warehousing, marketing, customer care, delivery and after sale services.
Bata Kenya said: “The convenience Jumia online marketplace offers to our customers is exciting, making sure our customers have access to their favourite products from Bata just a click away and have deliveries anywhere in Kenya, it’s awesome.
Bata’s customers will now have access to a stylish range of shoes without having to fight through traffic or visit the stores, they can shop straight from their mobile phones through our mobile app, when they shop on Jumia online marketplace, they are still shopping from Bata.
For parties interested in selling, the product needs to be brand-new, unused, unopened in its original packaging, with all original packaging materials included.
Original protective wrapping, if any, should be intact and the product should include the original manufacturer’s warranty, if any, with warranty details included in the listing comments. The seller will then upload the product image with a description before the product goes live on the company’s website.
