What is an Affiliate program

An affiliate program is a marketing system or technique where an affiliate promotes the products and services of a business and receives payment for such promotion. In more details it means:

  • You agree with Jumia to promote their products by referring customers to their site where their products are placed for orders and purchases.
  • When the customer purchases any product through the referral you provided, Jumia pays you a particular percentage of the money, called commission, the customer bought a product for.
  • The more purchases your referred customers make, the more your earnings.
So, it's all about promoting and earning! You don't pay, but you get paid! All you do is bring customers to them and if they purchase, you're on the payroll. Jumia gives commissions of up to 13% and referral links last for 30 days before they expire.
