Jumia Affiliate Program: How To Apply and Start Making Money From Product Sales

UPDATE: Jumia has moved from CJ to a new platform. Read more about the new Jumia Affiliate platform here.  

After publishing the $27.50 I earned from one product sold for Jumia Nigeria, I have been receiving some mails on how to join and start making money online from Jumia affiliate program. So, I’ve decided to share with you in this post, the steps involved so you can get started asap.

If “Jumia” is new to you, it is an online shop that offers thousands of products for sale ranging from electronics to beauty products. Games & consoles, fashion products, laptops and latest phones are also available at their online store. The site runs a partner program through which anyone who helps in selling their products earn some commission.

The Jumia Partner Program is a pay per sale program that pays affiliates for referring sales or customers to Jumia. If a customer referred to Jumia purchases a product within 30days after clicking on an affiliate’s link, the affiliate will get a percentage of the sale price as commission.

Commission Junction manages the affiliate program on behalf of Jumia. You will generate your affiliate banners and links from Commission Junction’s website; cj.com and it is also from the site that you will be tracking your performance and payments.

How To Join Jumia Affiliate Program

To become Jumia affiliate, you need a blog or website with some reasonable traffic. You can learn how to create a free blog here if you don’t have one.

To get started, go to : http://www.jumia.com.ng/jumia-affiliate/ and click on the “sign up” button. You will be redirected to CJ website to fill the application form.

If you are not already a Commission Junction publisher, complete the short application form to get started earning commissions from Jumia.

If you are already a Commission Junction Publisher, you can skip the form and sign up for the Jumia Nigeria Program directly through the Commission Junction Member’s Area.

If accepted, you will get a confirmation from Jumia with your account information. Thereafter, you can log in to your account at CJ.com to generate the Jumia banners and text links you can use on your blog or website.

How To Make Money Online from Jumia

To make money from Jumia Affiliate Program, you have to help Jumia in selling their products. You get paid if someone you refer to Jumia via your affiliate banner/link buys something at Jumia. If you refer one million customers to Jumia and none makes a purchase, Jumia won’t pay you a dime. So, you have to sell, sell and sell.

You can easily refer customers to Jumia by placing Jumia ad banners and text links on your blog or website. If you are using banners, ensure you choose banners according to your target audience and place them in clearly visible positions on your blog. If you are using textlinks to promote Jumia products, try to use short, descriptive texts that will attract clicks eg “Buy latest Blackberry phones at Jumia here“.

You can write about their products in your blog posts and embed your affiliate links in the posts. If you have an existing blog post that is related to a product at Jumia, you can also add your link to such post. Be careful, don’t add links to unrelated posts or else, it might affect your ranking in Google search.

Keep driving traffic to your blog and always track your performance at CJ.com.

Once you reach your threshold, ($100) you can request for your check from CJ.com. Once delivered to you, you can take it to your bank. 

I hope this helps.

    • 1. Get your Jumia referal text link from your CJ.com account and embed it in the mail you blast to your mailing list.

      2. To insert in all your blog posts, you will need to add it in your html, just the way we add sharing buttons etc below or above posts. I will try and write on it though but be careful, it's not cool to promote same affiliate product in all blog posts. Not all the posts will be related to the promoted product.
