KAMPALA – Jumia has announced the launch of Airtel money payments on the platform.
Ron Kawamara Jumia Uganda CEO says customers on the platform can now pay for their orders with Airtel money in addition to the existing payment methods, cash on delivery, and MTN Mobile Money.
He noted that the launch of Airtel money payment onto its platform is a huge addition that the company believes will benefit consumers.
“Millions of Ugandans depend on mobile money to make their daily transactions, and by expanding our payment methods to include Airtel money, it will make it easier for more consumers to incorporate online shopping as part of their daily transactions,” said Mr. Kawamara.
The new payment method will also support the Jumia contactless delivery initiative launched as a safety measure against COVID-19.
Customers will be able to prepay for their orders with Airtel money & upon delivery will have no direct body contact or cash exchange with the delivery agent.
The payment method is valid for all Jumia consumers across the country and for all items available on the Jumia platform.
