How to import orders via CSV on uAfrica

You are able to import orders using a CSV file on uAfrica. This saves you the time and effort of creating manual orders. 

  1. To do this, log into the uAfrica dashboard and click on the “Orders” tab. 
  2. Find the “Import Orders” button near the “Create Order” button and click on it. 
  3. From the pop-up box, select “CSV File”.
  4. Then download the sample CSV file. This file is an example of how the CSV file that you will import should look. You need to ensure that all columns marked with * are fully complete since these columns are required in order for the import to be successful. The headings must also be exactly the same as that of the example file.
  5. Once the CSV file has been added, orders will be created in the “Orders” tab based on the information in the CSV file.
  6. If you have errors in the CSV file that you have imported, the system will flag this or show you errors. These errors will then have to be resolved.
