Jumia Pick-up Stations: Leading e-commerce firm, Jumia Kenya, has expanded her pick-up points across the country.

Consumers in Eldoret have won big in this expansion exercise with 20 new pick-up stations established in the Uasin Gishu county headquarters. This means that customers in the region will now be able to easily access over six million goods at lower delivery costs.

“Our strategy is to expand our countrywide pick up station network to 600 from the current 170 pick-up stations,” said Jumia in a statement.

The new strategy relies on an agency model, through which existing entrepreneurs earn up to Ksh. 20,000 from hosting Jumia pick up stations in their existing shops  and facilities. The move is aimed at empowering small and medium enterprises by boosting their revenue and providing better services to the growing customer base in key areas such as Eldoret.

“We see a growing potential & many unserved customers in areas outside of Nairobi. In towns like Eldoret, our range of products and competitive pricing is even more relevant for customers. Our expanded pick up station network will enhance customer confidence and provide them a convenient shopping experience,” said Sam Chappatte, the managing director at Jumia Kenya.

Among the newly opened pick-up stations in Eldoret region are the Koibatek Uniforms, The Young Pioneer, Bargetuny Plaza and Loop Business Center.

The move is expected to speed up the uptake of online shopping upcountry, providing opportunities for vendors countrywide. So far this year, Jumia has launched 150 agency pick up stations in Nairobi and her surrounding areas.

Entrepreneurs who want to take part as Jumia sales consultant or pick up station agents should register online on the Jumia website.
