Jumia has apologised to customers for the several hours outage suffered by the online store on Black Friday which resulted in many customers not being able to successfully complete orders on what was supposed to be the biggest shopping day of the year. As a result, the retailer is extending Black Friday sale to 11:59pm Sunday to give enough time for all customers who could not succeed on Black Friday to do so.

Jumia sent out emails aptly titled “Jumia came between you and shopping: Black Friday extended!” and signed by the CEO Nicolas Martins this morning confirming that the cause of the disruptions was due to unprecedented demand.

In the wordings of the letter “Demand for our (Jumia) services reached an unprecedented level”. It went on to say “We had difficulty keeping up with the huge number of requests. The load in our servers led to drop outs, significantly impacting the shopping experience”.
