This year, Black Friday on Jumia Tanzania will start on Friday 27th November and will be extended until Monday 30th November.
Jumia is the first online mall in Africa (present in 11 countries in Africa) where customers can choose between a large range of products from fashion, to electronics such as phones and TVs. Jumia introduced Black Friday to the African market in 2013 and made it become the first and largest event of its kind in Africa. During this day, Africans search for the best deals and discounts that they would otherwise not get on a regular day.

“Originally established in the U.S. more than 50 years ago, Black Friday, which take place after Thanksgiving day, is now a well-known sales day both in the U.S. and Europe. People go mad for it. This year, we bring the concept to Tanzania. We've got mind blowing deals for our customers. And can't wait to share them!” stated Jean-Philippe Boul, Managing Director of Jumia Tanzania.
For the 1st edition of Jumia Black Friday in Tanzania;Jumia has decided to partner with Ecobank Tanzania which isa Subsidiary of Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), a multinational bank presents in 36 African Countries.“With its wide network and a wide range of advanced electronic offering Ecobank is the right partner.

These sales represented an extraordinary tenfold order increase compared to 2013's Black Friday.
“Africa’s disposable income & online consumption is growing at an extraordinary rate. In Tanzania, we expect to sell more in this year's Black Friday than in the whole of 2014. But this is just the start. We are here for the long term and have plenty more surprises to come”, added Jean-Philippe Boul
Last year's Black Friday sales primarily focused on consumer electronics, with particular interest in digital products such as flatscreen TVs, digital cameras and ventilation systems. This year, Jumia predicts that it will sell a lot more fashion & cosmetics too, with great deals such as all kinds of stylish dresses at 50% off. Jumia positions itself as the leading marketplace for high-end local and international brands. They work with everyone from local fashion brands such as Footstep (50% off!), to established mobile brands such as Samsung, Tecno or itel (up to 23% off –Tecno C8 below 274,000 TSH).  On Jumia's Black Friday, you will be able to get your hands on the Samsung Tab4 7” tablet for less than 345,000 TSH (that's 18% off!) and Sony 32” TV at 23% off.
