NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 25 – Jumia Kenya has renewed its partnership with Postal Corporation of Kenya to increase Jumia’s pick-up points countrywide.

In a statement, Jumia says the deal will see customers save on their delivery fee on over its 10 million products sold on its online portal.

Jumia Kenya CEO Sam Chappatte says the deal will serves customers in places that have little access to pick up stations, even as demand from areas like Eldoret, Mombasa, Kisumu and Nakuru continue to increase.

“We continue to see increased demand from surprisingly even as far as Lokichogio in Turkana. Our expanded pick up station network with Posta will enhance customer confidence and the adoption of eCommerce countrywide,” said Chappatte.

Chappatte adds that the initiative is part of Jumia’s strategy to reach more customers outside of Nairobi, where the demand for product variety and affordable pricing is very high.

When shopping on Jumia, customers will have the option to pick-up products from a Post Office closest to them during the checkout process, the products will be dispatched to the selected office for collection.

“e-Commerce has witnessed an upward trajectory over the last decade, and we are happy to be part of the change. We would like to assure all customers of quality service on all their Jumia orders and they can also access other services that Posta Kenya offers.” said Postmaster General and CEO of The Postal Corporation of Kenya, Dan Kagwe,
