Have you wanted to do online shopping via the Jumia Uganda site or the various Jumia apps but stood aside in fear of your mobile data running out? This could be for you! The latest development indicates that you can now shop on the platform without spending a single byte.
This also means you can engage in the various activity such as treasure hunts and mystery shopping, at the comfort of your mobile data. The catch; you must be an MTN Uganda subscriber to benefit.
What is zero-rated surfing?
We told you about SafeBoda’s similar initiative, where riders can request for SafeBodas to pick them up without spending their data. But many people didn’t understand this, and we are here to explain.
Zero-rated surfing does not imply surfing without MBs. No, it instead implies that when you surf, with your data loaded on your mobile, the site or app you visit won’t need your MBs.
This means you can’t get the best of the service if you have zero data on your mobile, you should have a reasonable balance.
This also means that if you visit the Jumia Uganda site or any of their apps to shop using MTN Uganda data, it will be a free surf throughout. These include the Jumia Food, Jumia Travel, and Jumia Jobs platforms.
