E-commerce company Jumia Uganda has Monday launched a week-long campaign where they will offer discounts of up to 70% on tech products.
The campaign which is dubbed the Jumia Tech Week will run for 12 days starting today March 16th up to Friday March 27th.
During this period, Jumia Customers can look forward to exciting deals on some of their favourite tech brands like Samsung, Nokia, Tecno, Hisense, Iphone as well as new brands like Pixel and MeWe.
Some of the deals lined up are: the Tecno F1 at 183,000 UGX, Pixel 32” TV at 398,000 UGX and an HP laptop at 850,000 UGX.
“Our customers asked us for deals beyond mobile phones and in return we widened our tech product assortment for our customers,” said Uganda CEO Ron Kawamara.
“This campaign caters for everyone whether you are a gamer who needs the latest video game, a student who needs a laptop, phone enthusiast, homemaker into appliances, or a sports junkie who wants that large screen TV, this tech week has more than 10,000 deals ready for you,” he added.
38% of Ugandans have access to the internet, a number that points to an increased adoption and understanding of online platforms and technology as well.
A recently released GeoPoll report highlighted the shift towards online platforms revealing that 76% of Ugandan online shoppers chose Jumia to make their online purchases. Most shopped items on online platforms were electronics and fashion.
“We continue to witness uptake in tech categories like computing and appliances on our platform. It’s these reasons that led us to create a more inclusive tech centred campaign this year.” added Ron Kawamara.
The Jumia Tech Week will keep with the promises Jumia offers in all campaigns, nationwide delivery across the country & express delivery in Kampala. Customers will also be able to purchase insurance for their tech products with Liberty insurance partnership. This insurance will cover device protection from theft, accidental damage and more.
