Custom Carrier Trackers 5 out of 5 based on 22 user reviews
Add new tracking methods with custom URLs in Magento, disable default tracking methods and make tracking links in emails clickable for your customers. All using the Custom Carrier Trackers extension by XTENTO.

Out of the box, Magento only offers three tracking methods: UPS, USPS and FedEx. That's often not enough. In case you want to add custom tracking methods to Magento, because you're shipping using a custom carrier for example and want your customers to be able to track their orders shipped using these custom carriers, this extension is what you're looking for.

This extension gives you the ability to set up ten new tracking methods in Magento. You don't have to set up ten new trackers in Magento - just set up the new trackers you need. The carrier/tracking name and the tracking URL is freely configurable, you can make it say whatever you want.

The tracking number gets replaced in the tracking URL automatically, just use the #TRACKINGNUMBER# variable and the actual tracking number will show up in the tracking URL. It is also possible to output the recipients postcode in the tracking URL by using the #ZIP# variable. No need to use the non-trackable default "Custom" tracker anymore.

Also, by setting up the carriers tracking URL, you will give your customers the ability to track their orders directly from the shipment email they receive. This very important feature does not work out of the box in Magento.

It is also possible to disable and hide all or some of the default Magento tracking methods (UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL) using this extension.
