Jumia Nigeria announces boost on Black Friday sales

Jumia, the pan-African e-commerce platform, has announced an increase in sales midway through its annual Black Friday promotion in Nigeria.

The promotion that began at the beginning of the month was scheduled to run until November 30.

Jumia said in a statement in Lagos on Thursday that several Nigerians across the country had taken advantage of Jumia’s Black Friday sales through discounts on various products ranging from clothing, fashion accessories, home appliances and tech gadgets, among others. .

Speaking about the promotion, Stephanie Gara, an Abuja-based caterer and one of the winners of the deals on the e-commerce site, recounted her experience during the sales.

Gara was one of the winners of the scavenger hunt and was able to buy the recently released iPhone 13 for just N6,850.

“Before the Black Friday sale started, I had prepared to win and told myself that I would do everything in my power to win something this year because I tried last year and couldn’t win anything. My children and I stayed awake to find the phone.

“I was surprised when I found the iPhone 13 and was able to add it to the cart. I didn’t believe it at first until I got a call from Jumia.

“I’m going to use the phone to take sharp pictures of the food I sell,” he said.

Another recipient of Jumia Black Friday deals, Damilola Olawale, praised the company for the sales.

Olawale was the most recent winner of a N200,000 coupon and a free subscription to Jumia Prime for one year, meaning you were able to get free delivery anywhere in Nigeria and enjoy discounts.

Nigeria News Agency reports that Jumia has continued to build the most loved and trusted shopping destination for Nigerians and Africans in general with the best online shopping experience.

The company has won outstanding national and global awards such as the ‘Best New Retail Launch of the Year’ award at the World Retailers Congress 2013, the e-commerce website of the year at the Beacon of ICT Awards in 2014.

It also recently won the Best Buy Award, Certification Association, for offering cost-effective pricing to customers in the post-COVID-19 era.
