FAQs

Let's answer some FAQs regarding this topic:

If you see this error message:

It means that any delivery estimate will now be visible on your Order Status page.

A smart delivery estimate will show the Track your order live! card with an estimated delivery date as shown below:

3. How to stop Shopify native emails or Shop tracking?

The store owners can hide both sections and enable the custom on top. This helps keep customers at the intended (your brand) site only and allows them to track only on the intended (your brand’s) tracking page.

Default Shopify view:

4. Why does Shopify show a different delivery date than your ETA?

As soon as Shopify knows the order is Out for delivery, they will show this message with the date of the delivered items. For example, if Sep 1st is the date for Out of Delivery, Shopify will show Sep 1st as the delivery date as can be seen in the image below:

In reality, going to the FedEx tracking page will show the customer that the scheduled time for delivery is 2nd September.

Tip

It is suggested to always hide Shopify sections to provide customers with the right information regarding their shipments.

 

5. Why does the order status page of the checkout (Thank You page) alter sections’ visibility with a delay?

This happens because there is remote JavaScript code that is loaded into the pages of a shop's storefront or the order status page of checkout. This code allows adding functionality to these pages. Remote JavaScript can run and alter sections only after the checkout page is fully loaded, thus creating a delay.
