Do the pitch of what you are selling by showing the customers all the benefits of your product. Do not hesitate also to copy paste pictures straight from other websites.

You will receive an email explaining the reason of rejection. After understanding the concern, you can edit and resubmit the listing for upload.
There’s no limit on how many products you can list for sale on Jumia.com. And this is always free.
Look for images online with the help of a unique identifier of the product (Model No) or Shoot the images of a live product at a studio following JUMIA image guidelines.
MASS IMPORT OF PRODUCTS
The product template is a tool to help you list lots of products at once. On the product imports page, templates for different product categories can be downloaded. They contain descriptions of all attributes, examples and a template Table. You just have to fill out the template Table with your products and save the table as a csv file (.csv). Then choose an import mode, either to create products or update existing ones.
It is also possible to import/update images via CSV upload for each product. For each product a maximum of 8 images can be uploaded by giving the URL for each image.
Once the file is uploaded, it may take some time to import the products to the system. Once a file was successfully uploaded, that means the file itself is valid and now the system tries to either create or update the products.
The current state of the imported file is displayed in the feed-table below the import-section. If the file has some errors, please click on “Details” and an overview is opened, where all errors of the file are listed.
On your Seller Center, go to “Products” > “Manage your Products”. You have several available filters:
– Image missing: (newly) created products which do not have image yet. These products are not available in the Shop.
– Poor Quality: these products were created or edited, but the product was rejected by the Content Team. Changes need to be made before the product can be Live.
– Sold out: Product that have no stock anymore and that cannot be bought by the customers.
– Inactive: products which have been set as inactive using the Active switch and edited products for which an old version still exists in the Shop System + products awaiting for Quality Approval from our Content Team.
You can do a bulk upload for all the products wherever possible. Training for a bulk upload could be given by VM or Content writer.
All your orders will appear under “Orders” > “Manage Orders”. Once an order is placed by a customer, it will land under “Pending”.
You should only process an order if you have the item in stock. If not, cancel the order. Once “ready-to-ship”, the order should not be cancelled anymore.
To cancel an order, select “Canceled” under “Actions”” for either the entire order or for one or more items within the order.
When you cancel an order, it is always a good practice to enter a reason that would be helpful should the customer reach out to the Shop-system in the future.
Also please note that you will be charged for cancelled orders.
Use the JUMIA branded packaging for your items. Put the printed invoice inside the packaging along with your items. If you are VAT-registered, you must staple your ETR to the invoice.
You must use the invoice generated through Seller Center as it has important information for the customer such as our customer service hotline and returns information. Staple the shipping label onto the outside of the package
Do this in a way so the barcode on the shipping label is visible and can be scanned. For large, already packaged items:
- Use a flyer and tape it on the package. In the flyer put the invoice and shipping label
- You may read the full packaging guidelines here
You can also watch a video tutorial explaining how to pack your items here
An item is “Ready-to-ship” when:
- You have chosen a shipping provider
- You have entered the Tracking ID to track the order to be shipped
- You have printed all the required documents: Invoice, Shipping label, pick list, Carrier Manifest
- Package your items and drop-off at any drop -off location which is convenient to you
Go to “Orders” > “Manage Orders” > Click on “Completed”. There you will see your history broken down by “Delivered”, “Canceled”, “Delivery failed”, “Returned orders”
Go to “Reports” > “Sales Report”.
You can get an overview of the sales/orders of your products, as well as your account statements. The graphs under “Sales Reports” are a visual representation of your sales and orders in comparison to the last week (last month, last 2 months or last 3 months).
Clicking on one of the data points will display detailed information for the selected date.
In your Seller Center, go to “Reports” > “Pricing Report”.
You have the possibility to see how many competitors are selling the same product. You can compare your price with the cheapest offer and how much you would need to reduce your price to match it.
In your Seller Center, go to “Reports” > “Account Statements” > “Current Statement”.
You can see how much money you’ve made and what fees you’ve been charged. All payouts to you will be determined by these statements (think of these as credit card statements.)

SELLER CENTER SUPPORT
An invoice is a document issued by a seller (vendor) to the buyer (Jumia) that indicates the quantities and costs of the products provided by the seller.
Jumia needs an invoice from your store for validation the transaction. It stands to say we have received the items and from you and indicates the monetary value. This means we can use that to book the transaction in our own books.
Kindly see sample invoice Here!
