Jumia has launched Nigeria's first e-commerce bot, which allows shoppers to order goods and book hotels and flights simply by having an online conversation with the bot.
Jumia Bot, which is powered and hosted by Facebook Messenger, offers Nigeria's 18 million Facebook users the ability to access their own personal Jumia shopping assistant.
Customers are asked what they are looking for, with Jumia Bot then using their answers to uncover the best offers.
Once a user's criteria is selected, Jumia Bot will remember and use the research for his or her next order.
