Jumia Kenya Stops Use of Cash For Home Deliveries

Jumia Kenya has announced that it will stop use of cash for payments. This comes in the wake of the COVID-19(novel corona virus) that has brought the world to a standstill.

Talking to the media, Chief executive Sam Chappatte said all customers must pay via mobile money or bankcards via JumiaPay platform.

He further added, “This is according to Central Bank of Kenya guidelines that we deter use of cash as it has been found to be a major vector for Coronavirus infections. You can pay upfront or await delivery to make payments via mobile cashless platforms,” he said.

Jumia has witnessed brisk activity fueled by a rising number of shopping requests for essential products bought and delivered directly to homes, even as the government struggles to enforce a partial lock down.

Mr Chappatte said demand for groceries, ready-made foodstuff as well as home cleaning products and other household items had shot up as Kenyans remained indoors as the country grapples with the COVID-19 scourge.

Mr. Chappatte’s statement comes as Jumia brings its customers the Techweek promotion that began on 16th March 2020 and runs to 27th March 2020.
