The Order status page was upgraded from the old "Thank You" page on Shopify stores on November 4, 2015.
It changed the way that the Additional content & scripts box functions.
Then your emails will automatically send the order status URL to your customers.
Follow these guides if you're not sure how to add a tracking number: Finally, it is recommended that you test the functionality of your checkout, especially if you have custom Additional content & scripts.
If you added any code to your Additional contents & scripts, for example tracking pixels or custom code from a third-party app, you should test your checkout experience by placing a test order.
If you opened your Shopify store after November 4, 2015, you do not need to test your checkout.
Everytime I have had a package coming via USPS that includes tracking, I check the site religously. I then receive the package, and then check the site (see, wasn’t kidding about the moron part). A few hours later it updates and said it has been delivered. It half works–I keep checking just in case they get their junk together.
It was instated because consumers were laughing at them for not having tracking, and then going to UPS/Fed EX/Airborne even though it costs more. Anyway, USPS finally got with the 21st century (a while ago, but this is still relevant) and has tracking on some shipments. Like the moron I am, I keep checking for updates (something that UPS/Fed Ex/Airborne do the time) and nothing changes. This faux tracking is nothing more than a bureaucratic tease. I’m not sure how they decide who to ship with, the last time I selected “super saver shipping” (AKA free), they sent it UPS and I got lovely/timely meta data.
We support partial fulfillments, even if they were made through different shipping carriers.
As part of the changes to the Additional content & scripts box's functionality, you can add content boxes to your checkout's order status page using a new Java Script object.
The URL to the order status page is delivered by these email templates: Your email templates control the Order confirmation and Shipping emails that are sent to customers when you fulfill and update orders.
