As a retailer it is important for you to be able to have complete visibility across the lifecycle of your orders. Not only for tracking delivery but also resolving customer disputes .
It is strongly recommended that a retailer provide both carrier and tracking information, however if you are unable to do so regularly then Catchfeeder have a configuration option to assist.
There are two Order Settings options available for Magento version 1 or 2.
You can locate this option by navigating in Catchfeeder to Settings ->Administration -> Order Management.
(1) Mark orders as shipped if carrier and tracking code is not provided
By default, once the order status is "Completed" in Magento, we will mark it as shipped in Catchfeeder and the marketplace regardless of whether it has carrier and tracking code information.
(2) DO NOT mark an order as shipped unless carrier and tracking code is provided
If your business process is to mark the order as 'Completed' and then add this information we will hold the order as pending until we see the shipping information.
Please note if this is ticked and you do NOT provide tracking details your orders will remain as pending Shipment in the marketplace.
In Magento the shipping information can be added as per below. Select the carrier from your drop down list and enter the tracking number.
Every few hours or so, we retrieve order updates from Magento.
Once the order is fulfilled in Magento and the information is retrieved, the shipping info will be updated in Catch.
Please be aware that the update to Catch doesn't happen instantly when you fulfil the order in Magento.
