About uAfrica 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).

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Having used this app since it basically began, it's only got better and better and BEST! The streamlined way my logistics, pricing of it and time I now have to spend on the growth of the site makes every cent worthwhile! Their pricing from couriers is better than you will get direct and the amounts they have to help make choice for you the business and the consumer all-round better! Their customer service team is WORLD CLASS, in fact, BEST IN CLASS by far too! It is seamless, effortless and arguably the best app I have on my store in 6 years on Shopify!
