JUMIA delists 390 products over hike in price


Jumia Nigeria has delisted 390 products belonging to 168 sellers of hand sanitizers and face masks from its platform.

This was contained in a communication received by the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) from the Chairwoman, Nigeria & Head of Institutional Affairs, Jumia Group, Juliet C. Anammah

This move came after a warning issued by online marketing platform to sellers engaged in the arbitrary increase in prices of protective and hygiene products because of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 across countries.

“About 390 products belonging to 168 sellers of sanitisers and face masks have been delisted. Unfortunately, this is an ongoing process as sellers can relist products. Thus, we will be doing hourly checks and clean up if necessary,” the statement read.

Jumia, however, asked the sellers with items delisted to review the prices if they would like to be relisted.
