How to Pay for Your Jumia Order Online with M-PESA

Jumia makes it easy and convenient to shop for various items online. Jumia offers various payment options including:
  • Pay on delivery
  • M-PESA
  • Airtel Money
  • Equity
  • Debit or Credit Card (Master Card/Visa)
Most people prefer the cash on delivery option as you get to pay only after the ordered merchandise has been delivered to you. This payment option is however not available for all items.

Some exceptions include Jumia Global items, high order amounts, certain products and specific regions or pickup stations.

For items not available for cash on delivery you are required to pay online in order to complete the order. To do this you can use either one of the mobile money options or the card option. Let's take a look at how to pay with M-PESA.



Pay for Jumia Order using iPay M-PESA Paybill

Jumia M-PESA payments are processed by a company called iPay that uses the Paybill number 510800. During checkout you'll be provided with two different ways to complete your payment using M-PESA: Mpesa Express or MPesa (Manual).

MPesa Express

The M-PESA Express options sends an STK Push to your device which automatically opens Lipa na M-PESA menu on your Safaricom number with the paybill number, accounts and amount steps completed. You only have to enter your M-PESA Pin to complete the payment.

Once payment is completed, the Jumia checkout page will refresh automatically and show you a message that the order has been successfully submitted.



MPesa (Manual)

In this option you'll have to complete the M-PESA payment as you normally do by going to your M-PESA Menu > Lipa na M-PESA. 

You'll then select the Pay Bill and enter 510800 as the business number. The Account number will be the unique code that's provided inside the M-PEZA details. After this enter the total amount for your order followed by your PIN.
