Deliver to precise locations

An accurate 3 word address allows customers to specify a particular entrance or gate to deliver to. This means that delivery drivers find the precise location first time, without having to call the customer for directions.

Reach more customers

As everyone and everywhere in South Africa has a 3 word address, what3words opens up whole new markets of eCommerce customers who can now receive deliveries for the first time.
