Jumia Uganda and Centenary Bank have today announced a partnership to incentivize the use of the bank’s cashless payments options of CenteVisa and Mastercard on the Jumia platforms as people look for safer ways to pay in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
“We are proud to partner with Centenary Bank as part of our commitment to promote safe cashless options and to support our customers by offering them a strong incentive to use their Centenary Bank payment cards,” Jumia Uganda CEO, Mr. Ron Kawamara, said during the announcement of the partnership.
Through this initiative, consumers who shop on Jumia and pay using their Centenary Bank Debit or prepaid card will receive a UGX10,000 discount on their order(s), encouraging consumers to safely transact using digital channels and avoid human-to-human contact as a preventive measure to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
The discount offer will run for a period of three months on Jumia for all customers across Uganda.
Centenary Bank’s Managing Director, Mr. Fabian Kasi noted that during the campaign period, Centenary Bank customers will win cash prizes for transacting with the bank’s digital channels, through the 5 For 5 Jackpot campaign. “We are excited to partner with Jumia Uganda, who will provide their busy eCommerce platform to all our customers to use their Visa and Mastercard cards to shop online and get rewarded for each purchase,” he said.
Kasi further explained that the customers who transact five or more times using CenteMobile, CenteVisa, and CenteAgent win cashback prizes of up to UGX100,000 every week. 30 lucky winners will be rewarded weekly, that is 5 picked from six regions and rewarded with UGX100,000 each.
“It is imperative that we continue to create a difference in the lives of our customers,” Kasi said.
The partnership will see CenteCard holders enjoy special offers and discounts on the Jumia platform when they purchase and pay with their card for a period of 3 months.
