uAfrica.com’s Multichannel keeps your products and orders in sync using real-time monitoring, making sure you never have to manually update inventory levels in multiple places again. uAfrica.com also works on all Shopify plans.
More granular control over the shipping rates you charge your buyers (Shipping Zones)
uAfrica Multichannel now also supports custom shipping zones. Custom Shipping Zones makes use of Shopify's real-time carrier API, allowing for shipping rates to be set at the time the buyer checks out based on the postal/ zip code of the order's shipping address. Rates for different postal/ zip codes can be set up based on the order weight and/or price.
Standard Shopify shipping functionality generally allows shipping rates to be set down to a province or state level. However, depending on the carrier being used, shipping rates can vary significantly within the same province/ state. With custom Shipping Zones, shipping rates can be set at a postal/ zip code level, thereby providing a more granular level of control on what shipping rates are charged to your buyers.
The app has preconfigured custom zones set up for specific countries based on how common carriers/ couriers charge for shipments. If definitions for your country do not exist, contact us and we will gladly set them up for you (or you can create your own custom zone definitions by uploading a spreadsheet).
Shopify's real-time carrier rates functionality is required for shipping zones to work (all other app functionality will work on any Shopify plan).
uAfrica Shipping enables automated tracking for shipments with over 450 couriers around the world. Simply select the carrier and enter the tracking number and your buyer will receive automatic notifications whenever the shipping status changes (the status of orders on Shopify are also automatically updated).
For South African users, you can also receive quotes from multiple couriers (currently Dawn Wing, CourierIt and The Courier Guy), create waybills, request collections and track shipments while automatically notifying your customers of any shipping status changes by email.

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.
Uafrica has not only improved my business but have saved me time and money !! Very happy with their service and easy system. Recommend to any online business !!
