How is it making you a good vendor?
Business success on Jumia is highly dependent on stock management. Your customers don’t want to order an item which is not currently available in your stock.
- Update your stock level AT LEAST ONCE a day to make sure your Seller Center stock EXACTLY matches your physical stock.
- A customer is happy when the products he orders are AVAILABLE.
- A happy customer will come back to buy your products because he feels SECURE buying from you.
