Custom Carrier Trackers

Add custom tracking methods to Magento, disable default tracking methods and make tracking links in emails clickable for your customers. All using the Custom Carrier Trackers extension by XTENTO.

Out of the box, Magento only offers three tracking methods: UPS, USPS and FedEx. That's often not enough. In case you want to add custom tracking methods to Magento, because you're shipping using a custom carrier for example and want your customers to be able to track their orders shipped using these custom carriers, this extension is what you're looking for.

This extension gives you the ability to set up ten new tracking methods in Magento. You don't have to set up ten new trackers in Magento - just set up the new trackers you need. The carrier/tracking name and the tracking URL is freely configurable, you can make it say whatever you want.

The tracking number gets replaced in the tracking URL automatically, just use the #TRACKINGNUMBER# variable and the actual tracking number will show up in the tracking URL. It is also possible to output the recipients postcode in the tracking URL by using the #ZIP# variable. No need to use the non-trackable default "Custom" tracker anymore.

Also, by setting up the carriers tracking URL, you will give your customers the ability to track their orders directly from the shipment email they receive. This very important feature does not work out of the box in Magento.

It is also possible to disable and hide all or some of the default Magento tracking methods (UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL) using this extension.


- Adds 10 new completely generic trackers in Magento
- Each tracker is freely configurable, change the name and tracking URL as required
- Tracking number and postcode get replaced in the tracking URL automatically
- Give your customers the ability to track their order directly from the shipment email
- Comes with a list of known URLs of often used carriers
- Default Magento tracking methods can be disabled and hidden
- Simple installation - upload and use!

This extension is also compatible with our Simplify Bulk Order Processing and Tracking Number Import extensions. Custom tracking methods added using this extension can be used for bulk shipping and imported tracking numbers and so on.

Additional Information

List of tracking urls that comes with the extension includes carriers from Germany (DPD, DHL, GLS, Hermes, UPS), UK (DHL, DPD, Fedex, Hermes EU, Royal Mail, Parcel Force, Fastway), NL (Post NL), IT (Bartolini, Fedex, TNT, UPS) and even more - updated frequently. Not sure if your carrier supports a tracking URL with a tracking number? Looking for the URL? Get in touch with us, we'll be happy to help.

An example tracking URL used for a custom tracking method with a replaceable tracking number variable would be: http://nolp.dhl.de/nextt-online-public/set_identcodes.do?lang=de&idc=#TRACKINGNUMBER#

The recipients postcode can be output in the tracking URL as well. Just use the #ZIP# variable. Example tracking URL: http://www.postnlpakketten.nl/klantenservice/tracktrace/basicsearch.aspx?lang=nl&B=#TRACKINGNUMBER#&P=#ZIP#

Excellent Does exactly what is described, and it does it perfectly. Also great support from developers. August 31, 2014
no more programming i had build an own solution for one shipping provider. but sometimes i send products with other shipping providers and it was more complicated. This extension helped me and worked out of the box. Also a good contact with the developer. August 18, 2014
Great extension Great extension, works out of the box and adds a function that is highly appreciated by my customers. April 13, 2014
Highly recommended We used this in conjunction with Simplify Bulk Order Processing (also by Xtento) for one client, and since then it's become part of our standard offering now. We honestly feel it's something every store should have. Easy to set up, easy to use, and very useful. In addition, I love the fact that it's so easy to generate additional license keys for development servers. March 25, 2014
the best I love Xtento Modules! Simple, easy and fast! bla bla bla! March 7, 2014

We planning to buy this module for our project but license are domain-wise; but we have multiple versions of the project for development purpose but the final production is only one.

Hence, will this module be allowed to use/test on beta domain (+ local development) of same project or not?

yes, certainly, you can install the extension in development/beta environments as well if required. Just make sure that the development environment is hosted on a domain that is clearly no production domain.

Please let me know if there's anything else.

Best regards
