Tracking Not Syncing from WMS to Cart

Problem

All or some of your shipment/tracking records are not syncing from your backend WMS to your shopping cart.

Solution

Check Cart Settings

  1. Browse to your cart settings by going to Carts > Select your cart > Edit Setup
  2. Under the Services section make sure you have turned on Shipment Upload. The recommended option is Every Hour.
  3. Click Save

Check Merchant Settings

  1. Browse to your merchant settings by going to Merchants Edit Setup
  2. Under the Synchronization with WMS section make sure you have turned on Shipping Confirmations. The recommended option is Every Hour.
  3. Click OK

Check Alerts

  1. Browse to the Alerts tab.
    1. Look for any alerts with a Red icon that mention tracking or confirmations, click on them to view.
  2. Find a specific order you know has shipped. Look up this order in CartRover Orders tab.
    1. Check for any error message at the lower right.

Carrier Mapping

Your WMS may be sending carrier codes that your shopping carts don't understand. There are two ways to resolve this:

  1. See if your backend WMS system can send more standardized codes. Eg. FEDEX instead of FDX
  2. From the Merchants tab select SCAC Mapping
    1. Here you can map the code coming from the WMS to a more standard code. Note: most SCAC codes are not recognized by shopping carts, but there are a few non-standard codes listed for easy of use like FEDEX and UPS.
