Your order was created 7 days before you installed rush
On install Rush App, we sync your orders for the last 7 days. If you need to sync for more than 7 days. You need first to upgrade to a paid plan and then you can sync your orders up to 60 days.
Your order was created 60 days before today
Shopify allows us to sync up to 60 days backward from today's date. If your order was created more than 60 days from today, it is not visible to Rush.
How does Rush sync your shipping tracking numbers?
Once a store installs the Rush app, Rush is immediately requesting the following data to Shopify:
Once the data is requested, Rush is waiting for Shopify to provide it back to us.
In rare cases, Shopify is sending back the data, but it might not be received/synced correctly. Example (for the geeks):
"message":"Internal error. Looks like something went wrong on our end.\nRequest ID: 55b063c8-4ba2-4978-9dba-4db7895c5e88 (include this in support requests).",
What Rush does about it?
Every 3 days, we are running full sync on all your orders for the last 7 days, to make sure any missing orders are going to get synced. This will re-sync all the orders that Shopify did not inform us of correctly.
What you can do about it?
