DO NOT INSTALL THIS PLUGIN!! Once you install, developer will quietly remove free features from it and then ask you to upgrade to premium. This happened to me as those features which were once free are asking to upgrade. Cannot add new shipping provider neither I can edit existing ones. I also posted about this on their support forum and got no reply after more than 2 weeks. This plugin is scam, bait and switch.

This is a nice plugin but the developers think they're god (don't listen to their users, we must listen to them) and also a bit of a bait and switch scam going on (features that were free, once implemented, have now now become paid without warning nor notification). Could be better. Could be faster. I hope someone comes along and does so.

Custom shipping providers have been removed from the free version, as well as multiple other features. Will not be using this plugin from now on.

Great and useful plugin made to work for the modern ecommerce store. Helpful developer and easy to use controls. The potential with this is well worth the money. We immediately upgraded to the paid version because it simply pays for itself in no time. I don't know why anyone would expect to not have to pay for such a useful and essential plugin that works so damn well. Everything has been thought through carefully with to control order flow and informational updates of the tracking information. It's definitely the best tracking plugin for woocommerce highly recommend it. We also use the accompanying trackship plugin and subscribed to their plan. They work seamlessly together. Honestly, it's a no brainer - just pay for it and enjoy worry free tracking.
