    What happens if my issue or complaint is not resolved to my satisfaction?

    Jumia operates the escalation process set out below, to ensure the timely and satisfactory resolution of all issues.

    Where possible, we will attempt to resolve issues at the first point of contact with the customer service team.

    If our customer service team is unable to resolve your issue within 24 hours of your first contact, a member of the issue resolution team will undertake an investigation.

    The issue resolution team may request additional information from you and they will investigate the issue, considering all relevant circumstances and information available. You will be informed of their findings within 48 hours of your first contact.

    In the event that the issue is not resolved within 48 hours of your first contact, it will be automatically escalated to the customer experience team as the final level of escalation. We endeavour to resolve all issues within 5 days of your first contact.

    Can I contact sellers directly?

    Jumia will make every effort to contact sellers to resolve customer complaints on behalf of our customers. However if these efforts are unsuccessful, customers may also request direct contact details for sellers, by contacting customer service.

    What if a seller does not cooperate in the dispute resolution process?

    Any seller that fails to cooperate in good faith to resolve a customer's complaint may have its seller account restricted or terminated.
