Jumia Pick-up Station
Jumia Pick-up Station.Business owners can now set up Jumia pick up stations within their existing shops allowing consumers to collect their ordered products and also be assisted to place orders for other commodities.

Jumia has launched its city partner program in the Mt Kenya region in a quest to expand its countrywide pick-up station network dubbed Jumia Mashinani.

Business owners can now set up Jumia pick-up stations within their existing shops, allowing consumers to collect their ordered products and also receive assistance when placing orders for other communities.

“This is a great way for businesses to earn additional income and serve as Jumia representatives in the Mt Kenya region. City Captains will also be responsible for recruiting & training young people in their towns – so that they can earn income via our JForce Program,” said Sam Chappatte, Jumia Kenya CEO.

Jumia intends to empower local businesses by boosting their revenue. Entrepreneurs can earn up to Sh100,000 per month by becoming Jumia pick-up stations within their existing businesses. This will simultaneously benefit consumers by reducing the delivery fee. The delivery is estimated to be 50% lower than what it previously was.

The program launched for the Mt Kenya Region will benefit customers in Kabati, Kenol Town, Sagana, Karatina, Nyeri, Nanyuki, Meru, Chuka, Embu, Mwea and Kutus.

 “We continue to see unserved customers in towns outside of Nairobi. We believe our large range of products and competitive pricing is even more relevant for customers in these towns.

“By expanding our pick-up station network and working with local entrepreneurs, we hope to grow the penetration of e-commerce upcountry,” the CEO added.

Furthermore, customers will be able to interact with city partners at their local pick up stations, to ask questions about the e-commerce ordering process and for assistance placing orders.

Jumia’s strategy is to have over 100 more pick-up stations expected to go live every month in the course of the year.
