Tracking Real-Time Shipment Statuses in ShippingEasy | FAQs

By default, the "Delivery" column displays to the right of the "Tracking" number column. Just hover your mouse over a delivery icon to see a real-time update of your shipments' statuses.

What is the expected time for delivery?

For specific tracking information, you can check the USPS website. Tracking is carrier-specific service, so the carrier websites will show more detailed information on where a package is located.

In ShippingEasy, packages in transit and expected to arrive by the delivery date shown on the tracking site will show “In-Transit, Arriving On Time.”

If a package will be delivered later than expected, you will see this message: “In-Transit, Arriving Late.”

How can I find specific shipments?

The "Delivery" column can be sorted by clicking the "Delivery" column header.

It is also possible to filter shipments by their status, using the "Delivery Status" filter options to the left of your shipments.

TIP: if you need to regularly filter for the same "Delivery Status", you can set up a Saved View. Learn more.

Click the Delivery Status filter and then select any of the statuses below to view shipments with a matching status.

Will my store be updated automatically with my shipping status and tracking number?

As soon as you process a shipment that came through your store, ShippingEasy will automatically update your store's admin panel with the shipment's tracking number and update its status to shipped.

    yes, but how do our customers, track there shipments? If they enter an email address on our shopify site, doesn't Ship Easy grab that email address and use it to send email updates to them?

    Hi Bill - Great question!

    • You can opt to send a notification via ShippingEasy to your customers, but you'll need to be sure that this is configured in your Store settings. We have an article that details how to turn this on: How do I send a shipping notification email to my customers?
    • If you'd like to customize your packing slip, we have a range of options available to you as well. Learn more about that here: How can I customize the emails that are sent to my customers?
    • If you've had the notification setting turned off and would like to resend any emails, you can do that from your Shipment History. We show you how to do that here: How can I resend my customer the confirmation email for a shipment?.
    • Lastly, you'll want to double check that Shopify is not additionally configured to send notification emails, otherwise your customers will receive this information twice, as ShippingEasy will send the tracking number over to Shopify once you generate a label.
