Up your shipping game with bidorbuy Shipping


We’re thinking inside the box

If you’ve registered as an Advanced Seller on bidorbuy, you can take advantage of our latest selling tool – integrated shipping with uAfrica. uAfrica is an ecommerce fulfilment specialist and they make the process of getting your products to your customers a piece of cake.

Concerns about shipping are often mentioned by potential customers as a reason for not shopping online, but with this new service, you can offer them complete peace of mind.

Plus, your first shipment using bidorbuy Shipping is free! That’s right, you can make someone’s day by having their purchase delivered by one of SA’s top courier companies – and it won’t cost you a cent.*

Benefits for you

When you sign up with bidorbuy Shipping, you can take advantage of all the features that uAfrica offers. These include competitive rates (with a  choice of five quotes for each delivery from The Courier Guy, Courier IT, Dawn Wing, MDS Collivery and Internet Express). You can then choose the quote that works best for you – and boost your online selling profits by saving money on shipping.

The uAfrica platform also lets you create electronic shipping labels at the click of a mouse, and you can request multiple collections online – it’s a simple solution that just works.

With bidorbuy Shipping, you won’t even need your own courier account – you can manage everything (including payments) through your bidorbuy account.

Benefits for your customers

Bidorbuy Shipping and uAfrica make everything more certain. Your buyers can see at a glance what they’ll be paying for shipping (depending on the size of the item and the area they live in).

Shoppers will receive automatic updates on the status of their shipment – no more wondering when a much-anticipated item will arrive, or staying in all day waiting for a box that only arrives at sunset.

How it works

Follow the simple 3-step integration process – you’ll find the instructions on our Seller’s Knowledgebase here. Once you’ve completed the integration, the “Ship with uAfrica” button will appear next to each completed order.

Simply click the button to receive the quotes you need – you can then set up the shipping cost for each product. Because the shipping costs are deducted from your bidorbuy account, you’ll need to make sure that your balance is sufficient to cover each shipping estimate.

A better shipping experience

The combination of competitive shipping rates and the certainty that comes with tracked shipping means that both you and your customers will enjoy a better shipping experience. By registering for bidorbuy Shipping, you can gain a vital competitive advantage over other online sellers.

Better shipping outcomes are bound to lead to more great reviews – plus the certainty that your customers are getting the products they want, delivered by SA’s finest courier companies.*T&Cs apply. uAfrica offers all new accounts their first shipment free up to the value of R100.00 (ex VAT). Users will be liable for the fees if the shipment is more than R100.00 (ex VAT). Even though this promotion is offered to all new accounts, uAfrica has the right to suspend accounts and return shipped parcels if misuse of this promotion is detected.
