Tracking URL

Hi there!

First off, let me say I don't know a lot of how to code in liquid.  But I am having this problem. 

When I send the shipping confirmation email (and on the order status page), it links to an invalid webpage. 

I am using an app called Trackr to make a track order page. 

I am also using Oberlo to process orders.  In the story settings page of Oberlo, it has me pick a tracking page and it is set to https://ohmyunderwear.com/apps/trackorder?nums=

But the link it takes me to is https://ohmyunderwear.com/apps/trackorderLS085442633CN which displays an error message which is getting me a lot of angry customers.  

How do I set it up so it will just take them to https://ohmyunderwear.com/apps/trackorder?nums=LS085442633CN

Basically, from what I have read, I need to change the tracking_url

Thansk!

Hello, August. 

Leon here from Shopify Support. 

There are a few steps to ensure your custom tracking links work in Shopify and Oberlo. In the Shopify admin go to Apps > Oberlo > Settings > Connected shops > Shop settings > General tab and add this link to custom tracking URL: http://www.17track.net/en/track?nums= and just below that make sure you've checked the box labelled "Notify customers about the order fulfilment". Changing this setting will ensure that the link offered for order tracking doesn't end up at a 404 error page. 

If you have any questions about these settings please let me know. 

All the best,

Leon

Hello Leon,

 

I would like to do the same think, but I don't use Oberlo. So how I can change the URL link ? I would like my customer can click on tracking number and follow the package directly on 17track.net

 

Where I can change it?

 

thanks

Hello Leon,

 

May I ask a question?

I did as per your instruction but I wanted to see for myself whether it actually worked or not in my case. I tried sending myself a trial email through Shopify but it ended up at a 404 Error Page. I'm wondering if it doesn't work during a trial email only and will work if it has an actual order and a tracking number.

 

Thank you so much for your time.

Sincerely,

Tristan
