Getting started on uAfrica
When you log into your newly created uAfrica account for the first time, the system will prompt you to set up a sender address. (Please note: this prompt is only generated for your first log-in. For all subsequent log-ins, you will be greeted by your uAfrica dashboard.)
Set up your sender address
As you can see from the above image, the system prompts you to create a sender address. This is the address from which the parcel will be sent from. Here you should complete every field, including an address name, like “Home” or “Office or anything else you will recognise later. It is important to make sure that you include your Street Address and to make sure that all of the information is as accurate as possible.
Your sender address can be edited at a later stage. This is found on the Settings page and instructions on how to do this can be found in Shipping settings below.
Create and fulfil your first order
After setting up your sender address, the system informs you that you do not have any orders yet. From here you can either create a manual order or you can import your orders by installing a sales channel or importing them via a CSV file.
Configure your Shipping Settings
One of uAfrica’s best features is its customisation. Before you start shipping parcels, it is important to check your settings and make sure that everything is set up to your preferences. To access your settings, click on the arrow next to your company name. From the dropdown menu select “Settings”. You can manage all of your uAfrica settings from this page.
