But, wait!. Before going deep into how to place an order on Jumia, I would like to share some helpful tips based on what I have experienced with Jumia online shopping.

4 Things to Note Before Placing Order for Jumia Products

#1 Buy Your Product During Jumia Promotion

Why should you buy your product from Jumia?. Because buying a product online is cheaper - Is that true?. Well, not really because as far as I know most popular products sold online are even costlier when compared with products you buy offline at your basic store and considering the cost of shipping which can be up to ₦3,000 based on differences in locations, you'll agree with me that is just too much. However, you can still get many quality products at cheap prices on Jumia if either you buy them during one of their promotional events such as Black Friday, Mobile Week or you buy them from Jumia Mall (category of products that'll be shipped directly from the Manufacturer). During Jumia event, you may as well enjoy free delivery on the product you bought which will definitely save you some money and depending on the number of items you ordered, free delivery can save you a lot.

#2 Return the Product if you are not satisfied

I believe what matters most when buying products online or offline is whether the products are of good quality or not. Who will care about the cheap price of a product if it's of inferior quality?. Absolutely, No one will!. So, you may want to know if all products on Jumia are of good quality. And I'll simply tell you that some product on Jumia can also be of inferior quality but Jumia as made it easy for you to shop online without any risk and that's why they're proudly known as the online shop you can trust. With Jumia Return Policy, you can easily return any product purchased that you don't like, whether the product is not of good quality or  you didn't received the correct item you ordered for(in terms of size, colour or type) within 7 or 15 days. And you will get your money refunded in full (including the shipping fee). 100% guaranteed!.

#3 Check Product Reviews First

I'll advise you check the the reviews of verified purchases of any product before buying. Below is the screenshot of the Customers' feedback on a product I recently bought on Jumia.

Even though you can easily return the item you ordered for if you're not satisfied, the hassle sometimes can be too much. If it takes 5 days to deliver your item and maybe 6 days to request, return and get your money back, when will you be able to get the product you want if you decided to place another order. So, it's very necessary to check the ratings and reviews on a product by those who have already purchased the product before placing your order.

#4 Check Your Location If It's Available

Jumia does not covers all locations in Nigeria. If your location is not available when entering your delivery address, choose a location that is not too far from your area. If not, you may face a great difficultly in getting your item(package) delivered except if you can reason well with the Delivery Agent.

Having clear that up, let's dive into the complete guide to place order for the product you want to buy on Jumia and how to get it delivered to your doorstep.
