Shop online in Ghana; Leading online retailer expands its services to Ghana

JUMIA, West-Africa’s number 1 online retailer is now available in Ghana. Today, the company starts its services in the country providing their customers with a wide range of products online – including fashion, consumer electronics, home appliances and mobile devices. 

Jeremy Hodara, Co-CEO of JUMIA: “We want all Africans to purchase high quality products for best prices. We launched in Nigera, Marocco, Kenya and Egypt before and are now in a market leading position in every country. We see the same potential in Ghana and thus provide every customer with a secure, easy-to-use and convenient shopping experience.”

Recently, JUMIA secured with its affiliated companies a high double-digit million funding in JUMIA’s holding company. The backing, which represents one of the largest investments for an African eCommerce startup, allows JUMIA to continue its rapid growth.

 JUMIA has become Nigeria’s #1 ecommerce, with every day over 100,000 unique visitors and a daily subscriber base of over 400,000 people – making it the 4th most viewed Nigerian site

Ghanaians can now enjoy online shopping like never before.

Jumia first launched in 2012 and has already successfully brought e-commerce to Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Morocco, Kenya, Uganda and Cameroon. With its own warehouses and delivery teams, as well as a variety of payment options including cash on delivery, credit card and mobile money, it has adapted the global megatrend for African consumers and won the trust of a large and constantly growing customer base.


Temitope Abereoje, Country Manager for Jumia Ghana, commented: “This is another exciting step for Jumia. We are confident that Ghanaians will embrace the opportunity to shop easily and conveniently online, and are committed to maintaining our high standards of security, great value and fantastic service as we continue to expand across the continent.”

Customers across the continent can shop amongst the widest assortment of high quality products at affordable prices – offering everything from fashion, consumer electronics, home appliances to beauty products. Jumia was the first African company to win an award at the World Online Retail Awards 2013 in Paris as the “Best New Retail Launch” of the year.
