Reviews

October 21, 2020
Support does not understand "business", is presumptuous and uncooperative. Plugin forces order status without any mechanism to stop it. They aren't even smart enough to recommend their own premium plugin that might solve the issue - but not likely. In other words, their own plugins are not compatible with each other.
October 1, 2020
Constantly get "Tracking details not found in TrackShip" messages on the tracking page. Very unprofessional and frustrating for customers. No help from Customer Service. Paying $139 /mo for Trackship should yield better results. If you run out of "Trackers" they just stop working with no warning. Leaving you with communication with your customer. Promising features but a ways to go.

This is a powerful plugin with many excellent customizable features. It is also fairly easy to setup and integrate with WooCommerce. The end result is better Shipment Tracking and communication with customers!
