Tracking Package URLs by Carrier

Acctivate's order fulfillment capabilities include the ability to track packages for the specific shipping carriers.

In Acctivate Configuration Manager, you can enter in or modify the URL for each Shipping Carrier.  This URL, accompanied with a tracking number, will allow you to select to track a package when viewing the package on the Packages tab of a Sales Order.

  1. In Acctivate, go up to File -> Configuration Management.
  2. In Configuration Manager, browse to Sales Orders -> Carrier.
  3. Here, you can enter in the Carrier’s URL.
