Jumia Uganda has launched this year’s “Jumia Black Friday”, the biggest sale to enable customers to “Save More Than Money” with up to 60% discount on all their favourite products.
The leading e-commerce platform in Uganda unveiled the 2023 campaign at Fairway Hotel in Kampala promising a bigger, better and more impactful drive with unparalleled savings and exceptional shopping experience.

Speaking at the launch, Jumia Uganda CEO, Vinod Goel, said the platform is in a much stronger position with growth and improved unit economics.
“Jumia has been growing in most of the categories of products and is also focusing on some non-electronics such as books, sports, music and kids’ products,” noted Vinod.
He said Jumia’s strategy to expand outside Kampala is bearing fruit with revenues outside Kampala growing significantly.

“Sharp shipping fees, reduced delivery timelines, relevant assortment to the upcountry market and mobilisation of a network of more than 5000 active J Force agents have resulted in making Jumia a preferred shopping destination in upcountry markets,” said Vinod.

“Jumia has more than 550,000 monthly active users with a very relevant economic and demographic profile,” revealed Vinod, adding:
