With the help of the Custom Carrier Trackers extension by Xtento, you will essentially improve the tracking mechanism available in both Magento 1 and Magento 2. The module will add new tracking carriers with custom tracking URLs, make tracking links in emails clickable, as well as disable default tracking methods which have lots of restrictions. And since the default Magento platform supports only tracking methods by DHL, UPS, USPS, and FedEx, Xtento Custom Carrier Trackers is a must have extension that lets you ship with other custom carriers providing your clients with the ability to track their orders.
After installing the module, you can add up to 15 new tracking carriers. Each new carrier, tracking name, and the URL are fully configurable, so you can customize them according to your business needs.
As for the tracking number, it gets replaced in the tracking URL automatically. You only have to use the #TRACKINGNUMBER# variable, that will add the actual tracking number into the tracking URL. Besides, the Custom Carrier Trackers Magento 2 module allows you to output the recipient’s postcode in the tracking URL. You only should add the #ZIP# variable. As a result, you provide your customers with the ability to track orders right from the shipment email, making tracking links in the email clickable. Note that this feature is not available in Magento out of the box.
Tracking urls that comes with the extension are:
If you didn’t find your carrier in the list above, contact Xtento to check if your carrier supports a tracking URL with a tracking number.
And don’t forget to check reviews on the extension’s official page, here are some of them:
