Look up orders by phone number

Tracktor supports looking up orders by phone number as well as email address if your Shopify store is configured to allow checkout with email or phone number.  To make this experience clear to your users, you will need to make a couple of changes to the Translatable Strings in your Tracktor Dashboard. Here are the steps:

Note: In order for users to look up their order by phone number, they must have checked out using their phone number, not their email address.  If they check out with their email address, they must use their email address to look up their order.

1. Configure your Shopify Store to allow checkouts via Phone or Email

Go to your Shopify Store's Settings > Checkout.  Under Primary contact method, check the first option, "Customers can check out using either their phone number or email".

2. Set your Tractor Translate strings

From the Tracktor Dashboard, click on the Actions button in to top bar. Select Translate:

On the Translate Strings page, edit the email and incorrect_email strings to mention phone number as well.  Click the blue Save Changes button in the top-right.

3. Update your SMS Notification

Go to your Shopify admin dashboard, click on Settings, then on Notifications. Open the order confirmation template.  Click on the SMS tab.  Copy the tracking URL below and add it to the end of your SMS text.

Track package: {{shop.url}}/apps/tracktor/track?token={{ order.phone | split: "" | reverse | join: "" | url_encode }}&order={{ order.name | remove: "#" }}
