Ghana’s leading online marketplace yesterday held a conference to interact with it’s cherished vendors ahead of its upcoming 6th anniversary.

The event which was attended by vendors from all categories including fashion, large appliances, phones & tablets, skin & beauty and computers was held at the Swiss Spirit Alisa Hotel in Accra. The conference also had the management of Jumia Ghana share insights on plans and strategies for the upcoming anniversary sale as well as other efficient ways to improve the overall business.

Speaking at the conference in Accra on Thursday, Mr Ore Odusanya, CO-CEO of Jumia Ghana said ‘’It’s that time of the year again! Jumia’s 6th Anniversary is only a few weeks away.

Together with our vendors, we have created the preferred and the most trusted online shopping destination for the Ghanaian customer and it has been an amazing ride this past 6 years.

If we have learned something in the years that we have operated, it's that the synergy between Jumia and our sellers is a great partnership and the recipe for our mutual success! The anniversary sale is twice as big as Black Friday and this year we want to replicate the same success in Ghana’’

The anniversary sale will run from 16th to 29th of July and Jumia is dedicated to providing a wonderful shopping experience for customers with the best pricing, quality products, effective customer service and quick deliveries. Vendors will also enjoy an amazing season of non-stop sales with so much traffic to their shops on Jumia.

In the end, we are there for each other. Jumia helps us to sell our products to a wider range of customers than we could have imagined and we also satisfy the needs of Jumia’s customers. A win/win situation if you ask me.

This conference has been really informative and interactive and we are looking forward to a massive impact on our businesses. We just can’t wait for the anniversary sales to begin.’’ said Mr Jayanta, Sales Director of Esbee Limited
