Africa's biggest online store Jumia comes to Windows Phone

Jumia ( is one of the largest online shopping sites in Africa. It was founded in 2012 and has offices in Nigera and Egypt. Think of it as the Amazon or Alibaba of the African continent. They recently launched a Windows Phone app. Find more details and the download link below.

While Jumia has operations in a handful of countries, only five currently support the mobile app. That said, we don't imagine it being too much longer before other African countries join in on the shopping fun.

Here are the countries you'll find support for Jumia on mobile: Nigeria, Kenya Morocco, Egypt, and Ivory Coast.

Here's the app description of Jumia for Windows Phone:
