Step 5: Choose a shipping carrier
After entering your shipment’s Tracking number, Shopify may recognize the format of the tracking number, and it will automatically choose a shipping carrier for you. But, in some cases, Shopify might not identify the tracking number format. When this happens, you can then choose a shipping carrier which is in the Carrier drop-down list by yourself.
Step 6: Enter Tracking URL
If Shopify fully supports your carrier, you will not have to enter the Tracking URL. But if Shopify does not support your carrier, you can then select Other from the drop-down menu in the Carrier field and enter the Tracking URL. When entering the URL, you need to enter the complete one including the digits which your carrier provided to help you track the shipment.
Step 7: Save
After you have finished entering all the information includes a Tracking number, Tracking URL and Carrier, the final thing you will need to do is clicking on the Save button. After you have saved this changes, the tracking number which you have entered will appear on your order status page.
