Jumia as we all know is one of the biggest e-commerce online shopping website store in Africa. It was established in 2012 and has significant presence in many African Countries including Nigeria.
The Jumia Black Friday is here again and today happens to be the last day, only those who hunt early enough will get the best deal.
Jumia Black Friday Sales
In July 2018, Jumia celebrated her 6th year anniversary in the e-commerce industry, they were so generous enough to offer a lot of massive discounts majorly on consumer electronics just to grace the occasion. So many exciting deals came up during that period, I don’t know if you were lucky enough to grab some.
For those who did congratulation, if you didn’t, don’t worry because another bigger one is coming forth to compensate you. This bigger one has come, incase you don’t know, we call it Jumia Black Friday.
Some of you have heard of it before, others haven’t. For the sake of those who don’t really know what Jumia Black Friday is all about, permit me to explain.
What is Jumia Black Friday?
Jumia black friday is the day when online shoppers compete to get the best deals on electronics, fashion, home and sporting goods, toys, video games, appliances, tv sets, tablets, smartphones, laptops and lots more; all at their lowest prices.
Still don’t get it? Let me explain tentatively.
In Jumia Black Friday, a smartphone that is normally sold for 20,000 naira can be offered to the fastest buyer for 15,000 naira or less but you have to be fast enough to place an order before anyone does.
Jumia don’t usually offer this massive and generous slash on all products, only few products would get this generous slash in price even though every single product is likely to get discount offers in prices on Jumia Black Friday.
So you gat to be smart enough to partake in these series of flash sales that would go on live on Jumia Black Friday.
I can hear someone already screaming wow! Are you serious right now, this is amazing, how can I benefit from Jumia Black Friday this year?

When is Jumia black Friday 2020?
The official date of the 2020 Jumia Black Friday have not been stated yet, it is likely to fall around November, 2020.
Here is a breakdown of the 2019 Jumia Black Friday events
Here is how Fridays will run.
Each Black Friday will begin with a “treasure hunt” by 12am. There will be discounts as high as 99% on treasure hunt.
99% discount, are you for real? Yes.
Let me explain how this works.
See Treasure Hunt as the hide and seek game we played as kids. The only difference here is that you are doing it online.
In Treasure Hunts, Jumia deliberately hides a particular item in a category you least expect to find it on their website.
They will provide you with relevant information that best describe the item they need you to search for.
You are expected to start searching for the item within the specified time. Fastest finger wins.
Let’s say the IPhone 11 was shortlisted for Treasure Hunt and you are expected to find it.
We all know that the IPhone 11 is a smartphone and all of us will expect to see it when searching under smartphone category on Jumia website.
But guess what?
Jumia can decide to hide it in clothing category.
For more insight, Here are the rules and eligibility criteria Jumia presented as a guide for the Treasure Hunt this year.
One or two modifications were made to ease understanding.
Treasure Hunt Rules for Jumia black friday
1. Only ONE item is available per treasure hunt & it is almost FREE at 99% off.
2. The item for the day is hidden randomly on the website (For example, a TV can be hidden in Women Shoes category, under the name of “Slippers”). All item images will remain the same.
3. Date & time is Friday by 12AM midnight and 6PM
4. Use the clues above(number 2) to know where to search.
5. Once you find it, order it fast!!
1. A customer can only buy ONE treasure hunt item during this promotion.
2. The winner will need to be physically present at the Jumia Corporate office to pick up the item.
3. The winner agrees that his/her pictures can be used by Jumia for promotional purposes.
4. Eligible winners must verify identity online with an account on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
5. The winner cannot be a previous treasure hunt winner.
There after, there is going to be what Jumia calls “flash Sales”. What are flash sales?
Flash sales are sales that run within a specific amount of time. There is usually a timer displayed on a product at discounted prices.
All you have to do is order these products at discounted rates before the timer runs out.
That is for the morning session on Friday.
Later in the day, there will be free delivery between the hours of 9am to 10am when you make payment with Jumia pay.
Another flash sales will resurface every single hours beginning from 10AM to 5PM
There will be a second Treasure Hunt in the evening.
Those who missed out in the morning have the opportunity to participate in the evening by 6PM.
That’s it for Fridays.
From Monday to Thursday, Jumia is going to be running free delivery from 9AM – 10AM when you pay for items purchased with Jumia Pay.
What is Jumia Pay?
Jumia Pay is Jumia primary payment platform.
Please note that free delivery will only be available for people living in Lagos, Abuja, PH, Ibadan and Abeokuta.
Flash sales will run everyday beginning from 10AM, that is Monday to Thursday.
On weekends, there is only going to be flash sales with 70% discount by 10AM.
Just before you go, here are two important things I recommend you do.
- Start saving in advance, remember the popular saying that goes thus; “opportunity favors the prepared”.
- Ensure you have a fast and reliable internet connection. If need be, get 3 sim cards with data in them because you never can tell, the one that seem very reliable can just disappoint.
