Can customers track orders using tracking number entered manually by the admin

I am starting a dropshipping business in the Home and Kitchen category. I have a limited budget, so to test out the store and products, I will send an Excel file or orders to my supplier at the end of each day. Once the orders are fulfilled, my supplier will start the shipping process and send back the Excel file to me with a column of tracking numbers added against each order.  

 

My question is:

1) If I enter those tracking numbers manually for the orders fulfilled, will the customers be able to track their orders? I have not installed any shipping apps, my supplier takes care of shipping.

2) If they can't track their orders then should I remove the tracking feature from my online store?

3) My online store will be based in India, let's say my supplier uses one of the shipping apps listed on shopify that uses several courier services, then can I install that on my shopify store and enter the tracking number on the app? Will that work out?
