By the end of this lesson you should be able to:
- Know how the commission is calculated and applied for every successful order delivered to your customers.
The commission is mandatory for each order and will be charged once the order is successfully delivered to the customer.
Jumia deducts the commission only when the order is successfully delivered to your customer. It will be directly applied on the weekly account statement which will be explained in a later lesson.
- The item commissions
- The commission value added taxes (14% of the commission)
Let’s set an example to make it easier:
If you are selling a product’s which total commission is 11.4%, then it is actually divided to 2 parts:
10% item commission + 1.4% value added taxes of the commission.
Also, you have the right to request a documentation from the finance department of JUMIA every 3 months, so that the 14% of the commission taxes will be taken into consideration for your business taxation calculation.

A few notes you need to be aware of :
– Our commission structure is between 4% and 15%.
If you are selling item X for KES 10000 on JUMIA, and the item commission is 5%, mathematically the item commission should be only KES 500.
You will be charged a total commission of KES 500
If you are selling item X for KES 15000 on JUMIA , and the item commission is 10%, mathematically the item commission will be KES 1500.
You will be charged a total commission of KES 1500
It is important to note that all Jumia will charge its commission based on the displayed price on the website by you as the Vendor
If the commission structure is reviewed you will be given ample notice so that you can effect this in your price.
