uAfrica.com has been providing cloud-based eCommerce services to SMEs across South Africa since 2004. Andy Higgins, founder and former Managing Director at bidorbuy.co.za, joined forces with the Jump Shopping team in 2012 following which the company rebranded as uAfrica.com in order to facilitate a broader focus on all aspects of eCommerce.
uAfrica.com has since launched a custom-built shipping solution which helps online merchants to streamline their shipping and selling processes by providing access to multiple South African couriers on one platform. uAfrica also has a Multichannel solution, which gives merchants the ability to sell their goods across multiple platforms such as bidorbuy.co.za, Shopify and PriceCheck.
The company was home to the South African eCommerce Awards between 2005 and 2015 which ran annually. It identified and gave recognition to companies that show excellence operating in the eCommerce space within South Africa.
