Something great is coming!
We are getting better and better!
We will be upgrading the classification of products on Jumia into more comprehensive categories to optimize product search even to the smallest detail.
Below is an illustration of the current category VS the new category under the new classification.
Please note that existing products on the platform will be automatically mapped to the new categories.
We will also be sending regular e-mails, SMS, and short videos to give you updates and instructions on how new products will be uploaded based on these new categories.
We are embarking on this big move to benchmark e-commerce global best standards and adapt them to best fit our local market.
Please note that in view of this upgrade, we will be commencing a maintenance on our system and there will be a system downtime from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM on Monday 21st January. You may experience difficulty with Seller Center and the website during this period. Kindly note that there will be no quality approvals on new or existing products from Saturday 19th January - Tuesday 22nd January. Please bear with us.
