Thought you’d never live to see the day you’ll walk up to your local Posta offices again? Well, think again – at least if you are into online shopping.
Jumia, Kenya’s biggest online shopping platform is now in partnership with Posta Kenya, a partnership that will allow customers pickup their purchases at designated Posta offices near them. The purchase on the Jumia website will resolve into a safe and convenient Posta shipment giving people away from the big towns a chance to enjoy the convenience of online shopping.
According to Parinaz Firozi, MD, Jumia Kenya, customers can order the product online, choose their nearest post office and only pay for their purchases through MPESA, cash or Postapay.
This move will bolster Kenya’s E-Commerce uptake by giving more people the freedom to shop and have their products delivered regardless of where they are in Kenya.
