1. Order not fulfilled
Many shoppers and merchants, when they see this, conclude that the tracking page doesn't work, but this is not the case. The first primary condition to track a parcel shipping status is that orders must be fulfilled. None of the tracking systems can track status if an order is unfulfilled and without a tracking number assigned from its courier.
Simply go to your Store Admin => Orders tab => Unfulfilled orders => Mark as fulfilled. Find more details in this section of the official Shopify Help Center to learn more about orders fulfillment.
Latest update: Order Tracking by Omega will automatically sync all orders that are placed under these two statuses “Ordered => Order Packed” instead of “order not found”. Online buyers will be well informed that their item is in process. This feature effectively helps to reduce customer anxiety. But once the order is switched to “fulfilled” mode, the app will update the shipping details correctly according to the courier data.
2. Incorrect shipment data
Irregularly, you might run into trouble with erroneous data processed by fulfillment partners. The most common case is they return data to your store admin with the correct tracking number but wrong courier name or vice versa. Many tracking tools are worse off with this error and fail to track. In case you notice there is any conflict in tracking information of your clients’ orders, please quickly contact your fulfillment partners/apps to request them to fix the glitch.
Latest update: Omega Order Tracking automatically detects the correct carrier based on the tracking code. The advanced feature will be released soon that will somehow resolve the glitch from the fulfillment side.
3. Courier not supported
The app only can track delivery shipments from supported carriers. Order Tracking by Omega currently supports over 180 carriers across the world, including numerous of the most common in the United States, Canada, and China, such as USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, Canadian Post, and China Post.
