How to set the custom shipping provider tracking link

When you add tracking numbers to orders, AST uses the tracking number and the shipping provider’s tracking page URL to automatically generate a direct tracking link that is sent to the customers.

When you add a custom provider, you can use the Tracking number from the order as variables in the tracking URL to direct your customers to track their order on the carrier website.

Available parameters:

  • %number% – tracking number
  • %postal_code% – country code from the order
  • %country_code% – postal code from the order

For example, if your carrier tracking page URL is:

  • https://carrier.com?track=12345678

You can replace the tracking number in the URL with the tracking number variable:

  • https://carrier.com?track=%number%
