Jumia, a leading e-commerce platform in Africa, has revolutionized online shopping for millions of Nigerians. With its vast array of products, competitive prices, and convenient delivery options, Jumia has become a go-to destination for online shoppers. However, there may be instances when you need to cancel an order you’ve placed. While Jumia’s cancellation policy is generally straightforward, it’s essential to understand the process thoroughly to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience.
Eligibility for Order Cancellation
Before delving into the cancellation process, it’s crucial to determine whether your order is eligible for cancellation. According to Jumia’s policy, orders can be canceled as long as they haven’t been processed for shipment. Once an order has been picked up by the courier for delivery, it can no longer be canceled.
Jumia offers two primary methods for canceling orders: through the Jumia website or mobile app, or by contacting Jumia customer service.
