They can choose their preferred shipping method at competitive rates, ensuring cost-effectiveness.  The new feature,Ship Now Pay Later (SNPL) provides much-needed financial flexibility by allowing businesses to delay payment. Additionally, real-time shipment tracking keeps them informed throughout the process, offering peace of mind.

"ShipAfrica recognizes the everyday challenges faced by businesses in Africa, especially those related to currency fluctuations," said Valentine Buchi, CEO of ShipAfrica.
