Few months ago, Jumia Nigeria started their affiliate program for bloggers and internet users to make money promoting the products on Jumia. To show that they did well with this, Jide made some money promoting just one product for Jumia via commission junction. I'm sure many of you applied for the affilate program and may have also made some money promoting products.
However, few days ago, Jumia Nigeria sent out a mail to all their affiliate partners about the closure of the affiliate program. Here is the mail I got.
Dear Adesoji Adegbulu,
Unfortunately we have to announce that Jumia Nigeria will close the CJ affiliation program by December 31st.
All sales via CJ, which are generated before the 31st of December will be treated in the regular way and commissions for valid sales will be paid out.
Please be aware that all Jumia Nigeria links will not work anymore after 31st of December.
We would like to thank you for the great collaboration and cooperation.
If you have further questions regarding the affiliate program of Jumia Nigeria please do not hesitate to contact us.
Your CJ Publisher Support-Team
The affiliate program via Commission Junction (CJ) will be closed on December 31st, 2013. As you can read, all commission will be paid out as at when due.
Now, the question is, is Jumia Nigeria stopping their affiliate program forever? What's the reason behind the closure? Are they losing out of the ecommerce market already? There are so many speculations simply because Jumia Nigeria didn't give reasons in their email. Also, there is a speculation that they are moving to another affiliate platform. If that is the reason, i think it should be communicated in their email.
What do you think about the deactivation of the Jumia Nigeria affiliate program?
I'll be looking forward to your responses.
