Can I Append a Tracking Number to a Tracking URL?

Yes, you can append a tracking number to a tracking URL found in your file or to the tracking URL used in your Default Tracking URL configuration.  This allows you to provide a base URL and EZ Fulfill will add the tracking number found in your file to the end of the URL.

There are a few things to understand before using this feature:

  1. The tracking number can't be added anywhere other than the end of the URL.  This feature will naively append the tracking number to whatever is set as the tracking URL.  It will not look for variables or any string of text in the URL, it will simply add it to the end of the URL.
  2. You will need to ensure you provide a well formatted URL structure.  If you're using a REST style URL and would like to append the tracking number to the end of the URL you will need to end the URL with a /.  EZ Fulfill will not do this for you. 
    1. For example, if you provide a URL like such; https:///www.mytrackingurl.com/tracking/ with a tracking number of 12345 and you have this feature enabled the URL will be https://www.mytrackingurl.com/tracking/12345.  If you forget to add the trailing / the URL will be https://www.mytrackingurl.com/tracking12345.  
  3. If you want to use URL parameters you will need to end your URL with the parameter needed for the tracking number. 
    1. For example if you have a tracking URL of https://www.mytrackingurl.com, with a few parameters you will want it to be setup as https://www.mytrackingurl.com/?c=UPS&t= so EZ Fulfill will append the tracking number to the end of the URL.  It will look like this, https://www.mytrackingurl.com/?c=UPS&t=12345.
