About uAfrica Smart Shipping

Smart Shipping with integrated Product Management

Orders are automatically synchronised from your Shopify store, making it easy to generate electronic shipping labels with one click. Receive quotes from multiple couriers (no additional courier accounts are needed), select the courier you wish to use, print the shipping label and request collection from the courier all from one easy-to-use interface. Your customers will then receive automatic updates by email on the status of their orders with online tracking within your own store.

uAfrica Shipping also enables automated tracking with over 450 couriers around the world. Simply select the courier, enter the tracking number and your customer will receive automatic notifications whenever the shipping status changes - the status of orders on Shopify are also automatically updated.

*Platform Integrations currently include Shopify, WooCommerce, bidorbuy and PriceCheck.

Manage the Shipping Rates you charge your Customers at Checkout

uAfrica offers two different methods of charging your customers for shipping during checkout – Real-Time Rates and Fixed Rates.

Fixed Rates make use of Shopify's real-time carrier API, allowing for shipping rates to be set at the time the customer checks out based on the postal code of the order's shipping address. Rates for different postal codes can be set up based on the order weight and/or price,

Real-Time Rates is when your customers are presented with shipping options based on live rates received from the couriers during checkout on your online store. The rates take the order weight, the customer’s shipping address and the collection address into consideration to display real-time shipping options for your customer.

Shopify's Third-Party Calculated Shipping Rates functionality is required for shipping rates to work on uAfrica (all other app functionality will work on any Shopify plan).

No accountability, we get pushed from uafrica to courier and both blame the other, if you are going to have companies that do your deliveries you need to be accountable.

I received such great support and service from Aubrey at uAfrica! Made this whole overwhelming experiencing so seemless. He was patient and calm and went through the steps slowly and made sure i understood. Happy to use Africa!!

Integration is easy and the app does what it needs to. The only thing required is for the app to handle overseas delivery as well. Spoken to all three the courier companies used by UAfrica and they all do overseas delivery, why not make this available, this will boost my sales.
