Does Jumia use a courier or postal service for delivery in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State?
It depends on what kind of delivery you choose yourself: free, or paid. This will determine the way of delivery. If it is free shipping, the parcel will likely be delivered by postal services. If it is a paid shipment – the courier service will be responsible for delivery.
However, some goods on Jumia support only one specific method of delivery and you should consider this before placing your order.
And if the goods are to be shipped from outside the country, you should know that some courier services do not deliver shipments to certain countries, then the parcel will also be handed over to the postal service. This and more are services provided by NIPOST.
It is best to check how the parcel will be delivered before paying for the purchase.
