How Does Jumia Affiliate Program Work?
Jumia Affiliate Programs works just like any other affiliate program. When you register as an affiliate, you’ll be given access to generate links to their products and offers. You can then send traffics to the links and if someone buys any product on Jumia through your link, you will be paid a commission.

Joining Jumia and Konga Affiliate Program
Joining any of these affiliate programs is very easy and straightforward. It does not take long to register approximately 5-10 minutes and you are done. Bear in mind that it may take 24 – 72 hours to get accepted.
Just like any other affiliate, both platforms require you to submit your website’s URL; this is a standard procedure followed by all affiliate programs since you can’t promote an affiliate without a website. Not having your own website will cause them to see you as someone who would most likely spam other platforms to promote his / her affiliate links. No affiliate program wants this. Approval methods from both platforms are manual and their requirements are very easy, you don’t need to have millions of thousands of traffic, just have a decent website and ensure your content doesn’t promote Violence, Hate, Adult, or Illegal stuff.
Countries Supported by Jumia and Konga
As an online publisher, you must ensure you know the countries that the bulk of your traffic comes. Getting this information is pretty easy, you can use Google Analytics for this. This information will help you know the best affiliates to join because it will provide you with the best geographic locations to target. I guess you don’t want to be promoting a product on Jumia and Konga to someone in the USA or UK because the traffic will not convert. While the Konga affiliate program covers only Nigeria at the moment, the Jumia affiliate program, on the other hand, covers Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, Tunisia, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Algeria, Uganda, and South Africa since they cover those areas as well. This gives Jumia an edge over Konga.
