I hope @Naveen_Navi must have found a solution for his store. So, answering for the benefit of others who are looking for similar apps.
I would suggest you check out the Multi Carrier Shipping Label app, which would help you handle shipping with multiple carriers like Blue Dart, FedEx, Delhivery, etc. You can use your own carrier account with negotiated rates to handle the shipping process. The app auto imports the orders, help you print labels for all orders in bulk and also handles the tracking process.
Hey Naveen, I went through oopmart and noticed that you still don't have a shipping policy page on your website. Probably you can design and publish one. Regarding shipping, since you are selling groceries, i am assuming that the volume should be decent, so ideally you should be eligible for getting discounted rates from carriers like FedEx, Delhivery. You can get accounts from them and the use the Multi Carrier Shipping label app where those accounts can be used to show rates to customers at checkout and perform fulfilment including label generation, tracking. The best part is that you would be able to track very easily as all orders for the day will come up in a single window. If there is an exception or delay, a separate section will intelligently show it.
