How To Sell On Jumia Platform And Make Money

Reading Time: 3 minutes

How can you sell your products on an online store like Jumia and still make money? Times are hard for Nigerians especially low-income earners. Nigerians were recently announced as the most miserable people in the world. 
There are so many graduates roaming the streets with little or nothing to do after their youth service. However, even in the midst of these harsh realities, you can make a living for yourself by capitalizing on the benefits of being a vendor on the Jumia platform.


Jumia is unarguably the biggest online retail platform in Nigeria today beating the likes of Konga, Udala, and Jiji to their game. Jumia has a lot of platforms but the focus here is the Commodity Sales platform which you can take advantage of.
How do you come in? You can come in by registering as a merchant or a vendor on Jumia platform.
Below are the steps to making extra cash using the Jumia platform :

Steps to dealing on Jumia

1- Log in to their website using this link(https://jumia_form.formstack.com/forms/become_a_seller_ng)

2- make a detailed list and descriptions of your products

3- fill all the necessary spaces in the form which includes your bank details, home address, etc.

4- Get yourself familiar with and understand the terms and conditions laid out by Jumia5- Add the overhead expenses including the commission jumia get listing your products on their platform.

People often wonder how do Jumia gets money to buy all the products on their website. The answer to that is straight and simple, Jumia does not own any products on their platform. They just act as an intermediary between the buyer and the sellers.

The majority of the products you see on Jumia is owned by ordinary people like you who have decided to make extra income and increase the visibility of their business. 


A good example is Laptops, the majority of laptops on the Jumia platform are owned by sellers in Africa’s biggest computer market also known as “Computer Village.”

I have heard a lot of people saying they cannot buy their products in Computer village, but indirectly when they purchase those goods on Jumia, they indirectly bought from those sellers in computer village. That is how it works.


What Do I Stand To Benefit On The Platform? There are a lot of benefits attached to registering as a seller on Jumia platform
Jumia advertised your products free of charge- Jumia informs you when someone orders your products by sending you a mail or a text-Jumia pays you weekly when your products get delivered.
