Step 7: Set Up Shipment Tracking and Updates

For an enhanced customer experience with transparent order tracking, you can use the free Advanced Shipment Tracking for WooCommerce plugin. This plugin correctly places the tracking information into your WooCommerce orders, making it easier for customers to see their shipping status directly on their account pages or via email notifications.

  1. Install the Plugin:
    • Go to Plugins > Add New in your WordPress dashboard.
    • Search for “Advanced Shipment Tracking for WooCommerce.”
    • Install and activate the plugin.
  2. Add Tracking Information:
    • When Printful ships an order and provides a tracking number, add this number to the relevant order in WooCommerce under the Shipment Tracking section of the order details.
    • Update the order, and the tracking information will be automatically shared with the customer.

This setup not only keeps your customers informed but also enhances trust and satisfaction by ensuring transparency throughout the delivery process.

Integrating Printful with your WooCommerce store can streamline the process of selling branded merchandise for your organization. This not only provides a source of revenue but also increases awareness of your cause.
