In this article, we will be covering WooCommerce UPS Shipping Plugin and how using this plugin, store owners can provide their customers the ability to track their packages as well as the return shipment label.

WooCommerce store owners have a ton of shipping solutions that make their lives easier when it comes to shipping their products. However, when it comes to a fully advanced shipping solution, some things must be there. These include the ability to track their packages and the ability to generate return shipping labels.

According to Vince,”…I have a few technical questions about the capabilities of this plugin. Regarding Return labels
– Can this plugin generate a return label with each order?
– Can it be configured to include a return label with every order?
Regarding Shipment Tracking 
– Does this plugin store the tracking numbers under the WC order # in the WP database? 
– Does it store both the outgoing AND return tracking numbers when they are generated?
Thanks in advance…

Sending Tracking Numbers to Customers

WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin is one of the few shipping solutions that support Shipment Tracking options. However, one of the best features is the ability to send the tracking details to the customers with the Order Completion Email. This way the store owners can easily provide the customers a way to track their shipments and to know the whereabouts of the shipment. The image below shows the plugin setting for enabling email notifications for the customers. Using this option the plugin will send the tracking details inside the Order Completion Email.
