Customers will always remain kings & queens. Successful businesses
today are those that are customer-focused. Having utter disregard for
customers’ preference, such as cancelling ‘Payment on Delivery’ and
compelling customers to pay before an item is delivered, or subtly
restricting the customers when it is time to return an item won’t
position a business as customer-centric.
The process of ordering a product online has become seamless. You can
simply visit the number one & trusted eCommerce store, order your
desired product (s) and it will be delivered to your doorstep in 3 to 12
business days within Nigeria. All things being equal, the delivery
should be smooth without any hassle and both parties should be happy.
however, there are circumstances that could compel a customer or buyer
to return a product probably due to a defect or the wrong product being
delivered. Or sometimes, the customer just doesn’t want the product
anymore, for no specific reason. The process of returning an item
purchased online and refunding the customer shouldn’t be as cumbersome
as some eCommerce companies deliberately make it to be. Your trusted
online store Jumia Nigeria shares 5 return policies that online shoppers

longer want the item/product (this reason doesn’t apply to Jumia Global

perfumes, cosmetics, hair extensions and jewellery). However, if at the
point of delivery you no longer want an item, ensure all seals, tags and
accessories are left intact. The delivery agent or the pickup centre
will assist you in returning the product at no cost to you.
