What’s new on Jumia? Get the latest updates from the Jumia Insider


Whew! It’s been 18 whole months since this blog saw the light of day and I tell you, we have gathered enough dust that can bring back the harmattan season in this month of June. But, don’t worry, I’m here to clean up the dust and get this blog up and running again.

First of all, introduction!

My name is Amina and I’ll be your Jumia insider for exclusive updates about Jumia events, offers, and deals. I will be keeping you up-to-date on what’s hot, what’s not, and everything in between. So, expect tea on affordable tech, fashion, groceries, beauty, electronics and so much more.

We have some catching up to do! 

18 months is a very long time, so I ask, how have you been?

Meehn! It has been a bumpy ride for us at Jumia, and along the way, some of the most exciting things have happened, like our 10th Jumia anniversary last year. We all know that turning 10 in business is no child’s play, so we went all out for our customers who made that happen. From very juicy deals to surprising our OG customers with gift boxes. It was a blast for our customers and for us. If you missed it, ouch! Sorry 😢. Don’t feel too pained sha, another Jumia anniversary is coming up on the 16th, June 2023, and we will go all out for our customers again 💃🏽.

Now, let’s catch up on all the incredible things that have been up on the Jumia platform in the past 18 months. 

The 5k store: “Shopping online is always expensive” is a very common myth and I am on a mission to bury that lie in the deepest ocean beds. That is why I preach Jumia’s 5K store gospel on a daily.

We created affordable stores on our platforms like the 5k store and the 1k store. This means that with 5,000 Naira or less, you can easily find and buy various items on Jumia. Be it fashion, tech, groceries, beauty, you name it, so even if all you have is N800, I am certain there is something for you.

The Jumia Official stores: Jemima, our sabi girl who sends newsletters was gisting me the other day about a guy who bought “addidios” instead of “adidas” 😩. Don’t be that guy. Check out our official stores today!

Along the line, we have built partnerships with over 130 top brands that guarantee you access to authentic products from these brands when you shop from the official stores on Jumia. We have the Adidas official store where you can buy original high-quality Adidas sneakers and products. The Oraimo official store for everything Oraimo. The Hisense official store for quality Hisense electronics and many more! The best part? You get these products at very affordable prices. So, shop from the brands you trust and we will deliver it to you anywhere in Nigeria.

You thought I was done? Not at all. If you have not checked out our Jumia Flash Sale or if you have not done so in a long time, now is the best time to shop from the Jumia Flash sale. The offers are bigger and better and you can enjoy up to 55% discounts on selected products. The Flash Sale runs every day at 10 am but products are on offer while the stock lasts so if you snooze, you lose! Get your fastest fingers working!

All these updates are just the tip of the iceberg. As we reconnect with you through this blog, I am so excited about the amazing things in store for you! Stay tuned for more updates, promotions, and exclusive content.

Till next Friday. Stay jiggy, shop happy!
