The service will be available in select G4S centres with the list expected to grow in the coming months. The move is part of Jumia’s strategy to meet the demands of its growing customer base across the country.
Jumia Kenya Managing Director, Parinaz Firozi said, “This partnership re-affirms our commitment to provide a convenient, stress-free and secure shopping experience. You can now order online and pay during pick-up at your convenient time.”
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.
Geoffrey Mwove, Director Courier, G4S said, “We are excited to work with Jumia to take e-commerce to the next level in Kenya, we are confident the partnership will meet and surpass the expectations of our customers.”
The partnership follows the massive on boarding of local and international brands who have since moved to establish online shops on the Jumia marketplace and launch new products and models exclusively on Jumia. Some of the companies include Microsoft, Infinix, Innjoo, Bata, Maybelline, Darling hair, Nairobi Sports House, Jua energy among other SME’s.
