Real-Time Rates on uAfrica
What are Real-Time Rates?
Please note that Real-Time Rates are not supported on Custom Accounts.
Real-Time Rates is when your customers are presented with shipping options based on live rates received from the couriers during checkout on your online store (not supporting MDS Collivery & Internet Express). The rates take the order weight (does not consider dimensions), the customer’s shipping address and your collection address (the default sender address on uAfrica) into consideration to display shipping options for your customer. These rates supplied are exclusive of VAT.
Real-Time Rates allows eCommerce businesses to align what your customers pay for shipping and what you get charged by the courier to ship the parcel, which helps to ensure that you don’t lose money when it comes to shipping.
