Jiji Kenya on Monday announced Black Friday offers for both the buyers and sellers on their platform.
The platform also has a Black Friday landing page where sellers have posted products with slashed prices and major discounts in different categories, such as cars, electronics, property, fashion, mobile phones, and tablets.
Sellers who purchase the Premium Prices ranging from one month to one year during this month will enjoy up to 20% discount for each of the packages.
“This month is a shopping season for most buyers and we want to make it as easy as possible for buyers to cross everything off their shopping list from the products our sellers have on the platform. That’s why we introduced the Black Friday offers for both our sellers and buyers. This will feature savings throughout the season,” said Maksym Golubev, East Africa Regional Manager, Jiji Kenya.
“Our expanded Black Friday Sale is to help both buyers and sellers get the maximum benefit during this shopping season.”
Jiji’s Black Friday is quite different from the popular e-commerce sites. They have a system that automatically selects all sellers who have reduced prices of their products.
The system then calculates the accurate percentage discounts of those products, which are then displayed on the Jiji Black Friday landing page. The offers include hundreds of markdowns on accurately discounted products, across the major categories.
The sellers on Jiji have much to crow about after the new introduction of 20% discounts for the Premium Services ranging from; Premium, VIP, VIP Gold, Diamond (Lite and Pro-max), and Enterprise (Lite, Standard, Pro-max, Gold).
Premium Services are promotion tools for the sellers which help to advertise the items as much as possible in the particular category, to sell all the goods faster and get in several times more clients.
