What is Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Marketing simply means the promotion of products and services sold by a merchant or service provider in return for a commission. You can also read this very Comprehensive Guide on Affiliate Marketing for more knowledge.
In my experience, the Jumia Affiliate Program is the best affiliate marketing program in Nigeria. It is the best paying affiliate program.
My Journey with Jumia Affiliate Program
I can still clearly remember that Friday (November 16, 2012). The day I saw Jumia Nigeria as a new offer on Commission Junction, the Affiliate Network they where using then.
I had to apply immediately because, having done Affiliate marketing with relative success for Amazon, I knew that a partnership with a local store was bound to be a hit.
By Monday my application was approved and I was already making dollars by the end of the week. Jumia Affiliate Program have gone through many iterations since them.
From using an Affiliate Network, they have moved the affiliate program in-house and from paying us in Dollars, we now receive payment in Naira.
However, one thing have remained constant and that is Jumia’s commitment to its Affiliate. While the likes of Konga are cutting back on Affiliate marketing, the Jumia Affiliate programs is waxing stronger with up to 11% commission on sale. See the commission table.
Since I joined the Jumia Affiliate Program, I have sold hundreds of million Naira worth of products, earning millions of Naira in commission for doing so. I hope to continue doing so in the future.

How to Promote the Jumia Affiliate Program
Once you login to the affiliate marketing site, you can build links or use banners. You can promote links on your website or share on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
How Jumia Affiliate Program Works
Jumia Affiliate Programs works like any other. You share a link about offers and items on sale on Jumia with people online and if they buy you earn a commssion.
But, how does Jumia track the links to know a lead bought a product?
Well, the link that you get from Jumia, has a tracking code in it. Once, the link is clicked it registers on Jumia’s server and at the same time a cookie (with a 7 day lifespan) is stored on the clickers device.
Even if the clicker does not buy immediately, as long as they buy within the lifespan of the cookie (in this case 30 days), the sale will be credited to you.
At the end of the month, if you have earned the minimum payout amount (5,000 Naira or 10,000 Naira not sure), your earnings will be directly paid into your account.
If you earned lower than the minimum payout, your earning will rollover to the next month. Your earnings will continue to accumulate until it reaches the minimum payment.
Payment are usually made between the 15th and 25th of the subsequent month.
This article is a work in progress. I will share more about the Jumia Affiliate Program in future.
