a. Notice

  • Tracker determines and updates information based on the "logistics provider's delivery status" rather than SHOPLINE's order status. Therefore, when merchants change the delivery status to "anything but Unfulfilled" or modify the order status in the SHOPLINE Admin, it will not trigger notifications in Tracker.
  • When customers choose "Store Pick-up" as their delivery method, Tracker will only send notifications when the delivery status is "Unfulfilled." Other delivery statuses or updates in the order status will not trigger notifications.
  • Customers can choose to receive push notifications for different order statuses and package statuses. However, when the Tracker's logistics status remains "In Transit," additional email and SMS reminders will be sent.
