App reviews, troubleshooting, and recommendations
Hi! I've been thru quite a few order status & tracking apps for my drop shipping store and still haven't found THE right one. The suppliers I am using to drop ship my products provide the tracking number immediately, but the apps I've used (paid and free) are never updated in real time or even close to it, and I'm constantly reaching out to them to update/fix/adjust. This causes a lot of frustration for my customers and it consumes SO much of my time that I'm sure you can all appreciate. I can't physically go thru every order every day and check the tracking status - which is what I'm currently doing.
Store Owners/Drop Shippers: What app are you using for order status and tracking that you can provide a link to in your stores website for your customers to track that is in REAL time?
Thank you!!! 😊
Hello there @ginamarie,
We've just created a list of more than 20 Shopify apps for order tracking on Shopify. Please take a look at them here: https://avada.io/shopify/order-tracking/
Kindly take your time to do some quick research, hope you will find the most suitable app for your store!
Thank you so much! I will look at all of these. I'm ok with a tiny lag in tracking updates, but the (highly rated) app i'm paying for & using now isn't consistent. I've got orders that have reached the local post office and are out for delivery to the final destination, but in the app it shows that the order is 'in transit' from September 28th. Today is October 19th, and there they sit at September 28th!
I'm using external tracking websites to track my orders to email updates my customers in real time, but I simply can't do that with the number of orders I have. It's consuming time I just don't have 😢
Thanks again for sharing your suggestions. Fixing this is a priority for me.
Same here. Haven't been able to launch my website yet just because of the order tracking issue I've faced. I tried Aftership but that failed miserably as just when I opened an account I faced issues so that's a no go. The other apps have weird pricing options with some even pricing daily per order which can get out of hand. I have to solve this asap in order to launch in time for Black Friday. Have you been able to find an app?
Hi, I stuck with the one I was using for the time being because I couldn't find anything better. I have to do the paid $9.00/month plan (21-200 orders per month). When a problem pops up, they're generally quick to reply. I'm not certain how helpful it is, but in my footer/shipping link, I included a few different links to other tracking sites (USPS, Package Radar, UPS China Post Tracking) for my customers. These aren't integrated into my store to send out notifications, but provide another alternative if my installed app isn't updating.
If I do find a better app, I will gladly update you via this thread 😊 & would appreciate it if you do the same!!
Here's the link to ParcelPanel that I currently have installed:
Best of luck to you!

I think you are looking for this app: Track123
This is probably the best order tracking app for dropshipping.
Most of the dropshipping orders are shipped by Cainiao(Aliexpress standard shipping)/ CJ dropshipping/ Yun express/ 4PX. And those carriers are all supported by Track123 and can be auto-detected correctly.
Besides, the blacklist routing feature can also help you hide the Chinese locations in the tracking details.
Thank you! I actually found one I’m very pleased with but I will absolutely keep yours in mind should anything change 😊
I am using ParcelPanel, which can automatically generate a tracking page in your store, which contains rich custom elements, you can do it according to your own ideas, and then you can see all your orders on the order page, which is convenient for you to go to Manage and support 1000+ couriers.
@ginamarie I've read the replies of two of our customers here. Indeed, ParcelPanel is the best Shopify order tracking app. ParcelPanel has been dedicated to helping Shopify merchants with order tracking since 2019. We have a larger user base than Track123 and AfterShip, as you can find in the screenshot below.
If you compare ParcelPanel and Track123, you'll find that Track123 is not a revenue-boosting solution. It doesn't provide you with enough data for analytics, either. If you use Track123, you'll need to invest extra money in shipment status emails. Consider the cost of an email marketing tool for transactions before you decide to go for Track123.
In comparison with AfterShip, you may find that ParcelPanel is a more economical choice. Our paid plans are more generous - less restrictive. With the Essential plan (starting from $9/month), you can enjoy basically every feature we offer, including Upsell, Email Notifications, ETA, etc. The Professional plan (starting from $9/month) allows you to access our tracking API, and the package quota reaches 2,000 per month.
ParcelPanel is built for Shopify merchants who want to effectively get more return traffic, save marketing costs, upsell successfully, increase the post-purchase experience, and boost the customer lifetime value.
