App-only deals will include discount vouchers, flash sales, Free Delivery from top brands and crazy give-aways (including a year’s rent and a car).
“Our goal is to facilitate convenience and safety for the consumer, by providing the DTB digital payment services as they enjoy the Jumia deals. Consumers interested in the deal are welcome to open a digital account with DTB, by downloading the DTB m24/7 app on the Google Playstore or iOS App store, following the steps outlined and within 5 minutes set up an account to enjoy a discount of up to Ksh. 1,500 from DTB, in addition to the Jumia deals.” said Farouk Khimji, DTB Head of Products and Marketing.
