How to geoCode and verify an Address on uAfrica

A tag has been added to all addresses on uAfrica to show whether or not an address has been geocoded, and thus, verified. Although an order with an unverified address can still be fulfilled, we suggest editing and geocoding the address to reduce the risk of the parcel being delivered to the incorrect address.

A geocoded and verified address will be a green label and an unverified address will be yellow, as shown in the screenshot below:

If an order’s shipping address is unverified and shows the yellow label, edit the address by using the Google Autocomplete address search field to geocode, and thus verify the address. To correct or edit the address, click on the edit icon next to the “Address not verified” label. This will open the “Edit shipping address” modal, which retains the original shipping address for reference but allows you to edit the address. You must save the changes in order to see if the new address is verified.

PLEASE NOTE: If the order was created without an address or before 10 September 2021 (when the feature went live), no original address will be displayed or kept for reference on the editing modal. Please also ensure that your Sender Addresses are also verified. To verify your Sender Addresses, go to Settings > Sender Addresses.
