One of the biggest contributions made to Ghana’s development by e-commerce giant, Jumia Ghana, is economic empowerment.
The company, besides offering direct employment to hundreds of young Ghanaians, has also created an opportunity for vendors and traders in all sorts of products to sell and earn income. And there is more — Jumia also empowers bloggers and owners of websites as well as Social Media enthusiasts to easily earn money whilst doing what they enjoy doing.
How many Facebook updates have you made in the last couple of days or months? What if someone told you that you could get paid every time you post, would you believe it?
So what is the Jumia Affiliate Programme? Sedd Duadze, the Affiliate Programme Manager of Jumia Ghana explains in the Q&A below:
Ques: What is the Jumia Affiliate Programme?
Sedd: The Affiliation program is where individuals and companies advertise for Jumia using unique tracking links that they place on their websites, social media, blogs, etc. When they successfully get someone to make a purchase, we pay them commission. In summary, the Jumia Affiliate Program pays affiliates for referring sales to Jumia by creating and sharing a generated link with your audience. If a purchase is made to the advertised product or category or any other product within 7 days after the link is created, you earn a commission. Commission ranges from 3 to 13 percent, dependent on which category of goods an affiliate chooses to promote.

Sedd: The online social world has become a way of life, everyone is on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, name them. There is always an exciting story, a trending topic and while at it, there is nothing more motivating than getting paid for it.
Your success with the program will be tied to your brand, the more you present products to your audience, the more they learn to rely on you and while slowly carving yourself a position as a consultant in a particular product category you make more money.
