This is a review of the Jumia affiliate program
. The program is another wonderful channel of making money online for bloggers both in Nigeria and other African countries with the presence of Jumia.
Let’s start from the foundation in case you’re not familiar with what Jumia is.
What is Jumia?
is an e-commerce store started in Nigeria in 2012. Jumia over the years has expanded to 12 countries across Africa: Ghana, Kenya, Egypt etc
What is Affiliate Marketing all about?
is simply helping a company sell its product and you receive a commission for that as a reward. Simple to understand, right? But there are a lot of things that come in between of signing up to and affiliate program and becoming a successful affiliate marketer.
On this site, Emycyber.com.ng, we use affiliate marketing as our main source of income. We register with affiliate programs related to our niche which are ad networks and web hosting companies.
How Jumia Affiliate Program Works
It’s similar to how many other affiliate programs work. First, you have to sign up as an affiliate and wait for approval.
Once you’ve been approved to join the program you can then access your dashboard where you find your unique referral link for referring people to buy from Jumia. You can find other promotional resources like banners through the dashboard. We’ll talk more on the dashboard later in this article.
How to Sign Up for the Program
It’s quite simple to join. Follow the simple steps below:

- Fill in the necessary details and wait for approval mail. Note, you can become a Jumia affiliate marketer even without owning a blog/website.
How to Earn Good Money from Jumia Affiliate
This is where the main work comes in, a lot of people earn over #100,000 monthly from the program and even a lot more don’t earn a penny.
Is it difficult to earn good money from the program? NO, not at all.
Does it require hard work and knowledge on how to go about it? YES, it does.
As with so many other ways of making money online, it requires hard work which I see a lot of people put in and also knowledge unfortunately, so many people don’t do it right.
To succeed with Jumia affiliate program, you need to have a target to start with. You have to define your audience and what they would want to buy. The product you wish to promote should help define your audience.
For instance, if you want to promote phones and phone accessories on your channel be it a blog or group. You should make sure the channel is related to phones hence having people interested in phones.
Often times I see blogs that are very far from the products they are promoting.
So, before signing up for the Jumia affiliate program, you should have a plan of showing a particular product to a related audience.
Let’s see different channels that you can advertise or promote Jumia’s products.
Platforms You Can Promote Jumia Products
You may not master all these platforms and honestly, you don’t have to. All you need is getting to understand what works for you. In all, it will depend on the amount of related audience that sees your promotion.
This is arguably the best medium to promote Jumia product because you can also get targeted products from search engines which are totally free.
It does not cost much to start a blog, you could get started for less than $20 or #6,000. The bulk work is in creating content just like this article you are reading.
To run an affiliate site, you must define your niche. You can read more about blogging basics and how to start a blog.
2) Social Media:
Unlike blogging where you can start without having an audience on the ground just yet with social media you’ll need to have a lot of audience on the ground and I mean a lot of it.
These are the 2 best means of promoting Jumia’s product. I’ve used them myself and I can say they work really good especially through blogs.
Jumia Affiliate Dashboard
To be able to hit the ground running it is important you understand how the affiliate program is designed to help you.
Just by the left pane, you find tabs with different functions.
First, you find the Performance tab
. This tab shows a quick summary of how your promotions are performing.
The Advertising tab.
This tab brings to you the promotional resources to help you promote their products.
The Report tab
gives in-depth statistic on how your promotion is faring. You can choose to check for a particular period.
The Payment tab
doesn’t need a lot of explanation as your guess is right. Here you add your payment details or change your payment details.
The Support tab
leads you to where you can request support that’s if you ever run into an issue with the program.
That is it with the Jumia affiliate program review.
Affiliate marketing has an advantage over ad networks since it can’t be affected by browsers. We all are aware of the trend coming with browser blocking features.
