You can enable the tracking details setting to automatically attach tracking details to the Shopify order. You can also enable the setting to send the tracking details to your customer via email. Enabling the tracking details feature will automatically mark your order as fulfilled within Shopify. The tracking URL will take you to the Urb-it tracking page where the customer can enter their phone number and the tracking code to track the package.
You can enable Urb-it rates in the rates section if you would like Urb-it to automatically calculate the delivery rates. Urb-it delivery rates are calculated without VAT included. We recommend adding the VAT percentage as the rate adjustment to ensure you do not lose money on delivery charges. You can also enable free delivery for orders above a certain value.
If you're not using Urb-it for rates, the phone number field in the checkout should be a required section. Please set this in Shopify admin > Settings > Checkout.
