How does uAfrica work, is it like the top up your payment method like TheCourierGuy?
uAfrica is a centralised portal for managing your couriers. It pulls your orders in automatically from Shopify or WooCommerce, and lets you book collections from any of Dawn Wing, Courier IT or Courier Guy on a per-order basis. You see quotes from all the couriers side by side before selecting one, and you choose everything about the size and weight of the parcels being sent. Depending on your uAfrica subscription, you get an increasing discount for each order. Once a collection is placed you get a waybill generated with all the details on it as well as your company logo.

Billing is a R500 credit system by default, and you are billed automatically when you cross the threshold. So you just use the system and billing takes place behind the scenes.

Reviving the thread... What does TheCourierGuy charge on prepaid for a small box couriered from CPT to JHB (as an example). Let's say under 1kg and A5 size.
