Order Statuses

As for orders handled by Dropshipman, after the payment, you can keep track of the entire fulfillment process by using "Order Tracking." Here, orders are categorized into 8 different statuses, including:

  • Under stocking: Orders in this status are to be stocked. On average, stocking takes 1 ~ 3 days;
  • Under quality inspection: Products in the orders are being subject to quality inspection, which is estimated to take 1 ~ 3 days;
  • Waiting for logistics collection: After stocking and quality inspection, orders in this status are to be picked up by carriers;
  • Transit: Collected by carriers, orders in this status are in transit;
  • Out for delivery: Having arrived at the local distribution center, orders in this status are to be delivered;
  • Delivered: Here, you can find orders which have been successfully delivered to customers.
  • Expired: The order status is abnormal or failed to be updated for a long time;
  • Failed Attempt: Orders in this status failed to be delivered to customers.

You need to pay keen attention to orders in the last two statuses, namely, "Expired" and "Failed Attempt." Contact your personal agent or our customer service in time when you need further assistance.

Typically, the moment you finish paying for an order, a tracking number is generated and uploaded to your online store. Notably, the first tracking number will be overridden when the order is shipped successfully. It is useful for sellers who are eager to get a tracking number to impress customers with fast shipping.

Dropshipman Order Tracking FAQ

1. Can my customer view the tracking number?

Of course, Dropshipman's system will upload the tracking number to your Shopify store as soon as it is available. Please note that when the order is shipped, an accurate tracking number will replace the previous tracking number.

 

2. How can I inform my customer of the tracking number?

Navigate to "Settings," choose "Notification," and go to the last section of this part - "Notify customers about shipped orders." Tick "Notify my customers" to send an automatic email whenever the tracking number is generated or updated.

You can customize the order tracking URL in the email. For more personalized settings, you can make changes to the email notification template in Shopify admin.

 

3. Can my customers view theorder tracking information in my Shopify store?

Dropshipman is in the backend of your Shopify store, which means that it is impossible for us to display tracking information directly to your customers. You probably don't want your customers to know that you're partnering with dropshipping suppliers, do you?

Nevertheless, you may install the TrackingMore Shopify app if you want to build a custom order tracking page, avoid answering "Where is my order" questions and reduce pressure on customer support. The Shopify app is free to use if your orders are less than 50 per month.

 

4. What can I do if the order status is abnormal?

"Expired" orders and orders with "Failed Attempt" are generally abnormal orders that require your attention. You may look at the tracking information first to find out something wrong with the order. Check the messages if there are any. If you need more help, don't hesitate to contact your personal agent or Dropshipman customer support team.

 

5. If the original delivery information is wrong, how can I modify it?

If you use Dropshipman to dropship products from AliExpress, you need to contact your AliExpress suppliers in time to change the original delivery information provided by your customer.

If the order is to be fulfilled by Dropshipman, the information left by your customer will be automatically checked. In case any information is wrong, the order will be recognized as an abnormal order and shown under "Orders" - "Dropshipman" - "Incorrect customer info."
