  • It updates the latest shipment status and estimated delivery dates on the Shopify order details page.
  • Customers can view recent shipment statuses on the Shopify Order Status page, and the Thank You page.

Note that Shopify support shows a few statuses on the order status page:

  • Confirmed - A customer created an order, but you haven't shipped or fulfilled the order yet. This is a good time to capture payment.
  • On its way - You marked the order as fulfilled or partially fulfilled in your Shopify admin, and the shipment is in transit.
  • Out for delivery - The shipment arrived in your customer's area and will be delivered to your customer soon.
  • Delivered - The customer received their shipment.
  • Attempted delivery - The carrier attempted to deliver the shipment to the destination address but was unsuccessful.
