E-commerce platform Jumia will this week have some of its product retail at half the price of their normal selling price.
This comes after the online shopping portal unveiled its Price Hero campaign that allows customers to shop for deals of up to 50 per cent off on selected categories including home appliances, mobile phones, electronics and groceries.
“We’ve identified a selection of 40 products to chose from, including the iPhone 8, PlayStation 4, and Samsung 32” TV. Jumia has warehoused over 1000 bail of Tuskys 2KG sugar which will retail for 40% off form KES 260 to KES 199”. Jumia managing director Sam Chappatte said.

The campaign will end on October 9.
As part of the “lowest price guaranteed” commitment across the country, the online retailer has promised to refund twice the difference on selected items purchased on Jumia within the period if found at a cheaper price from a selection of other outlets.
Online retailers like Jumia sell cheaper than other retailers because products come directly from the manufacturers thus eliminating the middlemen and do not incur expensive rental costs that have bought over retailers to their knees.
Partners taking part in the campaign include Tuskys, Samsung, Unilever, Chandaria, Fero, Hotpoint, Ramtons and Mika for exclusive deals on Jumia during the campaign.
