IMEI Feature

Hello,

How to use the IMEI number when you fulfill your orders
At Jumia we are in continuous pursuit of improving your experience while you are doing business with us.

We are now introducing IMEI feature (Serial number) for your mobile phones in Seller center so that we can send you back your authentic phones in cases of failed deliveries from customers. This feature will detect discrepancy from customers, Jumia hub partners or delivery associates if any.

In such cases, it will help us speed up your payments without spending time on delayed investigations.

To help us do this, you need to do the following : 
  • During order processing in Seller Center, either scan or hand-type the IMEI (Serial number) as shown in the field below.
Inline image 1
  • The IMEI number entered by you will be printed on the sales invoice document.
  • The IMEI number in document and IMEI on package will be matched at our stations during package drop-off or pick-up.
  • Jumia hub personnels may reject the packages in cases of mismatch between the two.
  • In case of failed deliveries, if customer or delivery associate or Jumia hub associate will try returning a phone of different IMEI, Jumia will detect the fraud and proceed for your payment for the phone.
Simple and Convenient ... Right? Then let’s get started! 
Any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Vendor Support Center.
 
Thank you.

Delay in Payment for items delivered

Hi,

Our payment system, which is being used to calculate the actual amount to be paid to you for all delivered items less commissions, is currently experiencing a glitch. This will lead to either underpayment or over-payment on your account and possible reconciliation problems.

To prevent this, we will not be making payments to your registered account for all items delivered until the anomaly is corrected.

Be rest assured that we are currently working hard at resolving the identified issue in the shortest possible time.

Please note that this is temporary and payments will be made immediately the issue is resolved.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this.

Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you.

1. Why do I need to drop-off my items on time?

Black Friday is the biggest sales event of the year! As always, we want to ensure all customers get their orders quickly and accurately. Vendors that drop-off their items on time will have a higher delivery success rate and will receive payment faster. All vendors are expected to drop-off their Black Friday items before 6pm on weekends. Vendors on Pick up service should be available Saturdays and Sundays

2a. When will the drop-off hubs be open?

All vendors are required to drop-off their items for the Black Friday weekend at the Agege Warehouse to ensure faster processing of items. If this is not possible, the other drop-off hubs will also be open.

Instead, please process the items of one order and email [email protected] or call 0818881102, with the subject of your mail as “Duplicate Order”. The Jumia team will cancel all duplicate orders on your behalf, or will call you back within 24 hours if the order is not a duplicate.

9. Can I change the price of one of my items?

Yes. However, we ask that all vendors keep price changes to a minimum to avoid overloading the system. Additionally, any price change that is greater than 30% from the previous price will require approval from the Jumia team. Until the price change is approved, the stock may be sold at the old price. If you are concerned about the time to approve a price change, please deactivate the SKU until the approval has been completed.
