1. What are penalties?

– As a Jumia vendor, you agreed with the attached Terms and Conditions to have the right to sell on Jumia. If you don’t respect them, Jumia may apply a penalty to your account.

– The objective of penalties is two-fold:

Protect customers from receiving wrong items and being unsatisfied.

Protect you from losing sales and potential customers.
