About uAfrica Shipping &Multichannel

Smart Shipping with integrated Product Management

Orders are automatically synchronised from your Shopify store, making it easy to generate electronic shipping labels/ waybills with one click. Receive quotes from multiple couriers (no additional courier account 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.

Connect your main Shopify store with other Shopify stores and online Marketplaces’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. also works on all Shopify plans.

More granular control over the Shipping Rates you charge your buyers (Shipping Zones)

uAfrica Multichannel 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.

Shopify's Third-Party Calculated shipping functionality is required for shipping zones to work (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.

Kairos Originals

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!!

Medical Practice Consulting Store

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.
