Commissions and Fees on Jumia
At Jumia we are relentlessly committed to support your business growth and profitability while ensuring customers have the best shopping experience.
In order to support this objective, we have heavily invested:
- In technology to improve your current seller center platform and to launch the new seller center end of this year
- In marketing to increase the awareness around your products and boost your sales
- In logistics to increase the number of products we can store in Jumia Express and therefore improve the customer experience with fast delivery
- In free shipping on your products to foster e-commerce adoption and increase your sales
In this context and in order to maintain the highest quality of service for our consumers and our sellers, our commissions and fees are applied on category basis as indicated below:
Shipping Cost Contribution Fee
The Shipping Cost Contribution is a fee that is charged to support the logistics involved in moving items ordered from one point to another. This fee is also based on the category of the ordered item. Bear in mind that the fee for Drop shopping items differs from items on Jumia Express. For more details on the Shipping Fee for your specific item, CLICK HERE.
Please note that effective 8th August 2022, Jumia no longer charges Pack Fees and therefore no longer packages your orders received at our hubs. Vendors are responsible for their own packaging for final delivery, with the exception of items under Jumia Express. We have provided Jumia branded packaging materials for vendors to purchase on the Jumia platform. You can however use your own packaging as long as it conforms to our packaging guidelines.
PRODUCT PRICING (Drop Shipping)
Use the price calculation shown below for DROP SHIPPING items;
Formula: = (vendor price + shipping contribution) / (1-commission)
Example: In this example, we will use a commission of 7%.
If the amount vendor wants to receive is, GHC 1200
Shipping Contribution fee: GHC 10
Commission: 7% (which converts to 0.07)
=> (1200+10)/(1-0.07) = 1301.075 → final price should be rounded up!
=> GHC 1302
PRODUCT PRICING (Jumia Express)
Use the price calculation shown below for JUMIA EXPRESS Items;
Starting September 1st 2022, Jumia Express items will attract storage fees as shown in the image below based on the size/category and the number of days in storage:
Formula: = (vendor price + shipping contribution + storage fee) / (1-commission)
Example: In this example, we will use a commission of 6% for a Small (S) item, which was in storage for 45 days.
If the amount vendor wants to receive is, GHC 950
Jumia Express (Storage) fee: GHC 0.09
Shipping Contribution fee: GHC 3
Commission: 6% (which converts to 0.06)
=> (950+3+0.09)/(1-0.06) = 1013.9255 → final price should be rounded up!
=> GHC 1014
