Thank you for bringing this to my attention. While I cannot confirm when we might be able to add CTT to the carriers list, I have submitted feedback on your behalf to the appropriate teams here so that they can consider adding this carrier. I understand that it would save you time if you didn't have to manually add the tracking link, so I appreciate you sharing this feedback.
There are apps available that can integrate the CTT courier service with Shopify. Apps like Multi-Carrier Shipping Label can be of your help.
If you have the CTT account credentials and API keys, the integration with CTT can be easily done in the app.
Once you have integrated the app with your store, there is no need for you to add the tracking details manually. Once you generate the label using the app, the tracking number os automatically generated and sent to the Shopify order details, which will be sent to the customers via email.
I'll have to agree and make the same request.
It's hard to always use "Other" as a shipping provider, and occasionally shopify recognizes CTT shipment tracking as LaPoste (French Courier), having customers complain about the shipment status. It does not bring any trust for those who are buying.
Thank you for your feedback, @helmutc!
Have you been able to manually add tracking numbers to your orders? I'm interested to hear more about the customer complaints you've received, as this is valuable feedback I can pass along to the teams that handle shipping and order management.
Thank you for the feedback @Sophia
Although most orders are able to have the correct shipping tracking link, some don't recognize the url and associate automatically the current tracking number to the la poste carrier.
This happens in 10% of the cases and sometimes we have to double or triple check if everything is working.
It's not very productive when there are too many orders to fulfill and add tracking codes.
I think Shopify should associate CTT as a carrier for at least to some clients be able to track their shipment, without placing always the link and tracking code, which BTW is not always accurate.
I appreciate you sharing those details, @helmutc. Can you tell me a bit more about the tracking codes not always being accurate? When you manually enter a tracking number on an order and select 'Other' as the carrier, this should add a link to the carrier's tracking page that your customer can access from their Order status page. You can also email order status updates to your customers, including a link for tracking. Is the carrier's tracking link not appearing for customers on the Order status page?
Hello andré. I am also based in Portugal and use CTT and UPS as carriers. I ship 100% of my orders outside of Portugal. I also have to enter the URL of CTT with every order but this is not the most important thing. I have 18% of non quality with CTT (too long delays and loss of packages) and UPS is too expensive for my business model. Can we exchange on the topic of carriers?
