Jumia Kenya has entered into a partnership with  courier service firm G4S to enable their customers to collect their online purchases from G4S centers across the country.

This move is part of Jumia’s strategy to meet the demands of its growing customer base across the country. In this arrangement, the service will be available in select G4S centres with the list expected to grow in the coming months.

To pick up items from G4S, customers will need to select the centre closest to them during the check-out process after which the product will be dispatched and the customer(s) can pay in cash or through mobile money transfer during pick-up.

Jumia has been on an upward curve as evidenced by the local and international brands which have established online shops on the Jumia marketplace. These brands have launched new products and models exclusively on the trading platform. Some of the companies include Microsoft, Infinix, Innjoo, Bata, Maybelline, Darling hair, Nairobi Sports House, Jua energy among other SME’s.
