The Layouts section will allow you to choose a display layout for the Tracktor form. Choose between a vertical (left option) or horizontal (right option) layout for the shipping status on your tracking page. You can also choose between the Light or Dark layout. Choose the option that matches your Shopify store. 

You can select a style to use for your maps. This feature is only available starting on the Business price plan.

You can choose the color of your Tracktor progress bar by click on the colored box to reveal the available colors, or you can utilize your own color hex value.

You may choose to display the order's carrier information (i.e. a link to the carrier's website and their contact number), the current package location or destination address on the map, the tracking number for the order, the order's content, as well as showcase some product recommendations on the tracking page based on what they ordered. 

This is where you can enable the Package Status Email Notification feature as well, which is only available starting on the Professional price plan. Click here to learn how this feature works
